Microsoft’s ‘Bing’ Sends Chills Through Google Founder

June 15, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Competition in the search world seems to be heating up, after Microsoft’s release of Bing has given Google something to worry about.

Sources inside of Google have told the New York Post that the CEO and founder, Sergey Brin, is nervous about the release of Microsoft’s first foray into Internet searches since MSN. He has even gone so far as to assemble a team to work exclusively on learning more about Bing’s algorithms, to see how it differs from their own.

“New search engines have come and gone in the past 10 years, but Bing seems to be of particular interest to Sergey,” an anonymous source within the company was quoted as saying.

But critics don’t seem to be nervous at all. In fact, many are thrilled to see a new kid on the block that will potentially create some stiff competition for what has become the godlike entity overruling the net, even if that competition comes from Microsoft.

But whatever the results of what looks to be a beginning battle, one thing is for sure: the war between the two computer supergiants will be one for the books.

    I’m relatively comfortable with the tracking data that Google collects, and what they do with it. I have about as much trust in the ethics of Microsoft as I have in the divine inspiration of stand-up comics, so I am NOT going to use Bing (and have added it to my blocklist in the hosts file).
