GBM Shortcut: Microsoft Bing



I received an exclusive invitation to preview Microsoft’s new search engine, Bing. Here is a quick GBM Shortcut video demoing a little bit of Bing and doing some searches on text, video, and images. I’ve only been using it for about an hour, so I’m sure there is much more to uncover. So far I really like the added features like roll-over previews, filters for images and videos, and the ability to automatically play a video by rolling over it with your mouse or pen. I also like the relevant search info on the left side bar. Usability feels far superior to Google. I’ll be putting more searches to the test over the next few days to test the things that really matter: relevancy. Be sure to checkout our screenshots, too.

    I really like the video previews and the image search filtering. I still think general search is the most important thing though and I’m wondering how it will fare vs. Google.

    Exclusive invitation?

    A Google search for “Bing review” pops up over 22 MILLION hits. Virtually every tech website out there got an opportunity to do a hands-on.
