DreadCthulhu wrote:Something must be wrong for you, boing; when I go to Bing It On, it opens a webpage with a search box that invites you "blind" test Bing & Google's search results side-by-side. I put quotation marks around the "blind" since the website does a poor job of sanitizing the search outputs; for example, when I put in my make of cellphone-telephone, one side had a list of "Shopping" search results at the top, followed by normal links, making it obvious that side was Google. Or when i put in "Mazda" it put in a mini-map showing the location of Mazda dealerships near Redmond, WA, using Bing's blue circles with white numbers for makers, rather than Google's reddish-pink markers with black letters.

They have to leave it like it is or else this little test would be completely flawed. You're just supposed to pick which one you like better, and obviously if you already know which you like better and that particular search engine's characteristics then you're probably not the target for this.

Yeah it's pretty bad...
The book is great though. Michael Crichton is awesome.
