Decision engine, my ass. There’s no decision to make here, Microsoft.
If you think I wanted Hewlett-Packard’s website, or a website about Poland, I would have typed HP or Poland. HP gets mentioned three times on one page, and WordPress’s abbreviated URL isn’t even mentioned once. Hmm. Where’s the ad revenue coming from? It’s not like Microsoft and HP have any common interests, do they? (For the record, Washington Post makes some sense, but their website is their name and not their initials, unlike WordPress.com!)
Decision engine sounds more like a retconning decision, as in “We have a crappy search engine… how can we explain why it’s that way?”
Decision engine. Fucking decision engine. I’ve decided to stick with Google. (BONUS: Outdated catchphrase coming up!) And that’s my final answer.
Boy, are you ever right. I tried to use Bing to find images for a film class I help teach ( in real-time while the lecture was going on ) — all to no avail. No matter how specific I got, it was still lost. Thanks for your post.
p.s.: Where can I get my “Bing Sucks” t-shirt?
I wonder what you’d get if you searched for “Bing Sucks” t-shirts…
