Battle of the Search Engines

I couldn’t let the launch of  Google-challenger Bing pass without a limerick:

Battle of the Search Engines
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A search engine yearns to be king.
Its name, for some reason, is Bing.
It’s Microsoft’s baby.
Hurt Google? Well, maybe.
Their quest? Lots of ad business bling.

  1. Most cool. But what is the deal with Bing? I mean, does it exist for any other reason but to line the pockets of its owners? How is it supposed to help web travelers? I have searched using it and see no difference from Google.

    My guess is it’s like Google on purpose. People love Google, but a lot of Webmasters think it’s too dominant and would like to see someone challenge its market share.

    If you want know something today,
    Just Google it, that’s what they say.
    Does Bill hope his try
    Will one day verbify?
    “Just Bing it!” sounds…more than risque.
