    Publicity is never bad it seems. I would have found the story more interesting if it was not busy trying cheap point scoring. Of course all is fair in publicity wars ;)

    I think the MS reply is kinda insulting. I'm no search engine guru, obviously. But the response includes:
    So Bing brought nice photos to the search engine homepage. They made "big" improvements in search results. And there's a rumor Google is worried.

    And I guess MS was once again duped by a malware technique.

    I don't think Bing is really copying Google :p
    There's another Forums i visit and some dudes tried a few searches and they were all different. :D

    Bing's results are definitely different from Google. Sometimes better, sometimes worse.

    Yeah, both are search engines, both are supposed to search, sometimes they bring similar results (Of all the screenshots i've seen, most of the time only 1 results is similar, and sometimes it's a WIKIPEDIA article :rolleyes:) :)
