I don't understand how you can "lose" 1 billion dollars per quarter hosting a search engine. I know you have to have the infrastructure in place as well as employee's managing the site. But 99% of the coding has been done. At this point it's basically just hardware and software maintenance.
I don't get it......
Bing may me less popular than Google but once I was searching for a particular software application, then Google has given me an N number of results where only few matched my requirements. As I couldn't get what I wanted I just told myself why not try Bing. Well to my surprise it displayed all the companies which provide this software. As per my experience I think the search is precise in Bing where as in Google you get tons of results which I have to wade through.
