Bing Bing

by Tom Swift

Why do I dislike Bing? I do not know why I dislike Bing, exactly (perhaps because so much about Microsoft seems so much less useful than it could be; also the name, Bing — which rhymes with Ding and that’s as dumb as a Dong) but I do not deny it: I do dislike Bing. Even less than I like Bing do I dislike the way Bing seems to be able to encroach upon and even override my search engine preferences. Most recently, Bing showed up on a search initiated in Google from the browser Safari! Safari is, of course, Apple’s browser. It’s like doing a search in Amazon and being directed to an a selection of Target products. I ask you: What is going on in this world?
