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.

PC World aren't fans, for some valid reasons.
