Nice to meet you Microsoft Bing. BING!

bing-logoAbout six weeks ago, Microsoft launched their new search engine – Bing. Well, okay, I don’t know if I can really say NEW. It’s actually Microsoft’s third attempt at a search engine.

Bing will be replacing Live search, and that process is almost complete. So far the reviews have been very positive. Less spam, more targeted results, great universal search options.

If you haven’t had a chance to try Bing, I highly suggest you do so. It will definitely be interesting to watch how Bing’s market share will inevitably grow.

Twitter Trends

twitter-trending-topicsTwitter is such a fantastic tool for a wide variety of reasons. Today I want to focus on trending topics.

On the right side bar of Twitter, Trending Topics list ten words or phrases that are currently the most commonly mentioned on Twitter. The image to the right is a screen cap I took of the Trending Topics around 11:00 am CDT today, Tuesday, July 7 2009. As you can see, five of the ten topics that are trending are related to Michael Jackson’s memorial that is taking place today.
