I never use Bing to search the Internet. Why would I? Google has provided more than adequate search services to me for years. Somehow, though, Bing managed to convince me that I should never use their service.
Here’s the deal: I just finished updating my work calendar with the classes I’m scheduled to teach. I wanted to make sure my schedule synced to my Google Calendar so I would have access to my schedule outside of work. I’m doing this on my work PC using Internet Explorer 8 (haven’t installed FireFox or Chrome yet, sorry). Being Friday and feeling a little lazy, I just type “Google Calendar” in the address bar. I figure it should bring up search results, the top result of which should be the GCal link.
Here’s what I actually got.
Remember, I said I NEVER use Bing. Why on earth does Bing think that I’ve “done so much searching lately”? Also, I have never had to deal with a captcha image when doing a Google search. This is a total inconvenience for the user (me).
Sorry, you won’t even stay the number two search engine on the internet with this kind of crap.
