  1. Microsoft has unveiled a new visual feature for its Bing search engine that will help users find what they are looking for even if they don't know what to call it. A user can initiate a search for digital cameras, for example, by clicking on an image in the Visual Search gallery and then sorting through hundreds of products that can be narrowed down using filters -- such as brand, type or megapixels -- found to the left of the main screen.

    im not suprised
    the technology is moving ahead
    but the main diference is obvious
    - how the engine works?
    im addict to "im lucky" - thats the FF works
    and will stick with that

    Bing is sooooo USA specific. If you live for in another country (and Bing detects it), the searches are ... so irrelavant. As soon as you choose "United States" in the preferences, everything is *OK*.

    So Bing shall be chosen by the rest of the world only if it surpasses the USA-specific stage and enter a new level where it will provide proper results for the rest of the world.
     
  4. hope Bing rolls right over Google by a huge margin!!!

    That is nowhere near as shocking as Yahoo's drop. Is Japan latching onto Bing or something?
     
  6. The Visual Search may not be the intended last stop for someone, but it may in fact be the last stop. Whats meant to act as an attention grabber might be the only information people get. http://www.newsy.com/videos/spice_up_your_search
     
  7. Hope bing goes out of the picture(hope i got the pun across]! :)
