    Shawn Stussy…I love you work dude. I love even more that you called your new sweatshirt Bing . So much so, I just ordered one Tweet
  • Blog Post: Search goes social

    Bing and Facebook – making search results more social. When you asked a friend for a pizza recommendation or what move to go see, you get a personalised result. Should your search engine work the same way rather than serve up the same 10 blue links that everyone else gets? If you think so, you think...
  • Blog Post: Pin Windows blog and Bing in IE9

Hot on their heels...
  • Blog Post: Bing Treasure Maps

    I’m probably way late to the game with this one but who else knew about Bing Treasure Maps ? They make a nice change from all those direction maps you now get with Google Maps :) You give Bing the location you want a map created from, jiggle a few settings and it creates you a map just like the one above...
  • Blog Post: Connecting the dots at Microsoft

    One thing we know we can do a better job of here at Microsoft is connect the dots a bit better between our products. This new Bing advert does a decent job of that, showing some of the Bing services beyond such – such as Farecast – the services on mobile and Photosynth.  There is plenty more that...
  • Blog Post: King of Bing Maps App Contest Winners announced

    I’m a huge fan of Bing Map Apps – I think it’s a great platform for people to innovate on and the King Of Bing Maps App Competition has shown that. The winners have just been announced and the Taxi Fare Calculator from Ricky Brundritt took top spot – rightly so as it’s a simple but effective example...

  • Blog Post: Discovering Bing

    I use Bing almost exclusively these days – there are moments when i drop back to Google but less and less.

  • Blog Post: Bing home page image gallery

    The Bing home page images have been one of the things people like most about Bing. I heard about a school in the UK who use the daily image as part of the education routine each day. Now the Bing team had made finding past images even easier with the Bing homepage Visual Search gallery . You simply go...
  • Blog Post: Like Gaga? You’ll love this

    The Lady Gaga superfan search started today with Stubhub and Ryan Seacrest in celebration of American Top 40’s 40th Anniversary.

    It’s becoming a week of Bing images for me. This is the image from Bing UK this morning…who’ll walk through the door of Number 10 Downing Street? Not sure we’ll know today..
  • Blog Post: Voting in the digital age

    The UK went to the polls today and the image above (from Bing UK ) shows how pretty much all of us voted. Whilst I like the nostalgia of the fact we still vote this way, it did strike me as rather odd that in the digital age not only were we still voting with a pencil but the process was also being tracked...
  • Blog Post: Bing favourites #10

    Bing made me smile today – I was right by this monument in Mexico City a week or so ago on my epic trip home from Seattle for the wedding. Beautiful but blurry for me!

  • Blog Post: 3rd Bing UK ad now airing

    Caught this last week during the football (oops, soccer) games. I’m undecided on this one so far but that doesn’t really matter as I’m not the target audience so interested in what others think.

  • Blog Post: Free Bing T-Shirt for your XBOX avatar

    On the one hand this is a trivial bit of fun…but on the other hand it’s stuff that should be the norm. You can now dress your XBOX Live Avatar in a Bing t-shirt. Hopefully a sign of more collaboration in simple but subtle ways across our products and services. via Major Nelson
  • Blog Post: Bing Maps…now with Worldwide Telescope integration

    The Bing Maps guys are on a roll. Last week it was embed code to put Twitter maps on any website. Today they released the ability to “look up” and see the universe right from the place you’re stood.

  • Blog Post: Bing Maps launches ability to embed Twitter maps on your site – #sxsw example

    Bing Maps has a series of map app or overlays you can add on to any map – personally I think it’s one of the best but most well hidden features of Bing Maps. One of my favourite map apps is Twitter which overlays geotagged tweets on to the map. The Bing boys and girls have just added the ability to embed...

  • Blog Post: Bing quick access

    I noticed a new feature on Bing this morning I hadn’t seen before called Quick Access. I’m sure it’s been there from day one but it was the first time for me. I was searching for an article in The Independent and used Bing ostensibly to find the web address for the newspaper. What I got back was the...
