Bing is as good as Google on search

Microsoft claims

Software giant Microsoft claims that it is just as good at search as Google and now it is time to find ways to persuade people to switch.

Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft's senior vice-president of online told The Times in an interview that Redmond had caught up with Google. He said that the two search engines were indistinguishable for most people. However that is not a reason to switch.

Lately Microsoft has been introducing new services to Bing users in a big to get them to change their minds about Google. Bing users looking for music can stream full versions of songs within the search window with links to buy from iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Microsoft's Zune stores. There's also a TV guide that pulls your location for cable schedules and a bevy of social network integration with movie listings.

Mehdi said that Microsoft had a lot of work to do as it was not as if “people wake up in the morning, and say, 'Dang, I wish I had another search engine.”

still don't like Bing, google is simple and that's how I like it, Bing with it's background images and such just looks a bit cluttered

Bing is a new product that will evolve over time but right now Google is years ahead.

To add to these comments as they are all valid points, the given options such as gmail, calendar is what does not turn people away from Google. Plus it's all centralized making access just so easy.
