*Note - the following is an email that I just sent to the Microsoft Corporation. I've been incredibly disappointed in their new Search engine - Bing. Do yourself a favor - AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS!!
Of course everyone loves Google - but anything is better than Bing!
Subject: Dirty Marketing Tactics
When Bing was launched, I was impressed by your marketing and your claims that it would provide better results for my internet searches, so I decided to give it a shot.
I must say, I was disappointed with your product. The search was no better than any other search engine that I use everyday. In no way did I see it matching the claims of your advertisements to be better and more precise than any other product out there.
I would have just stuck it in my back pocket to use as an alternative search engine from time to time.
Now, however, not only will I never again use Bing, but I am actively encouraging others not to use it as well. After just one use of your product, you have infected my system. Now, I can hardly go to a web page without a Bing pop-up window invading my browsing.
I have never had problems with pop ups until I made the mistake of using a Microsoft product. Now, you are everywhere.
Your dirty marketing tactics prove this company to be no better than a common spammer.
