Is it just me or is Microsoft really shooting itself in the foot with these Bing search engine commercials? They always have one person asking a question, and then the person they're posing the question to rattling off all these unrelated tidbits of information that don't actually answer the original question. That doesn't seem like a ringing endorsement to me. I want my questions answered. If I'm looking to buy a basketball rim for my driveway, I don't want to see links to websites about rim jobs . . . Okay, so maybe I do. But you know what I mean! If my questions are only going to be vaguely addressed based on one or two keywords, I'll stick with the perfectly mildly adequate search engine I'm already used to and has been doing what you claim to do for about a decade: Google. Bing, if you want people to use you, try actually answering the questions you're asked . . . or do something new.
