Why “bing”?

…when we can “ask” or “google” or “yahoo!”

Today, I thought let me check an “online SQL tool” (web-based database administration software) on the net, and found out that Microsoft has one. OK, let me download it and check it. I visited their website, a link diverted me to it. And within it, it diverted me to an automated search, because the link was broken, or thinking the visitor typed an incorrect URL.

Search for SQL web data administrator
Search for SQL web data administrator

And click on the first “genuine” looking result, which was actually the link I followed to come to Microsoft’s site:

Oooops! a broken link!
Oooops! a broken link!

How can Microsoft expect the people use their “bing” while they can not even index their own mess?!

As usual, they change search settings of Internet Explorer, automatically add “bing” thing to the search provider list, through Windows Update. By the way, is it (Windows Update, nowadays they call it Microsoft Update as well) a feature to fix their bugs/faults or a trojan that does whatever Microsoft wants to do on our PCs?

All right, let’s just forget about the whole “bing”!
