Bing me!

I'm not gay, but Google is hot! I mean, IMHO, they pretty much rule the roost when it comes to email and discussion groups. I never questioned making them my primary search engine over Yahoo! and Live Search...but then came Bing. We've all seen those annoying commercials and, I promise, they did nothing to encourage me to give it a shot. It wasn't until a DevLink attendee mentioned Blind Search that started to think maybe my search engine allegiance might waver. Blind Search is like the old Pepsi/Coke taste test, but instead we're comparing search results. I entered a few test searches and, to my surprise, I ended up picking Bing nearly every time.

I must admit it will be hard getting used to saying that I "binged" instead of "googling", but I'll give it a shot. :)
