Because It's Not Google
A new search engine has recently hit the net from Microsoft, called Bing. The claim is that it is a Decision Engine - from what I can see, it basically allows you to filter your results. Check the search results for Turkey - click the filters on the left. There are many different meanings of "Turkey" - so it essentially is asking you "which one?" Could this be called end user semantic definitions post-search? It definitely is attempting to create structure from the mess...:)
It appears that many of the features of bing aren't available here in Canada yet - ie, local, links to purchasing, etc. I haven't tried hotspot shield yet to see if this is the reason.
