It has already been confirmed that Bing will be the name of Microsoft's new search engine. It opens the new chapter of Microsoft trying to beat the world's #1 Search engine, Google.
Honestly, I don't believe that this one cannot really beat Google when it comes to search engine reliability. And I'm a bit confused why it was named Bing
It was the same as our city mayor's name, Evelio "Bing" Leonardia, who was also involved in the Pacquiao-Hatton fight when he was one of his supporters. I am looking forward to its name which Microsoft can fully develop its potentials to its new name of their search engine.
"whats in a name" - is the famous quote of the past.. but I feel that name is the driving force for most websites in the current internet environment.
as for why it was named "BING", I guess is the microsoft employees and strategists were too involved in the popular TV Series FRIENDS and couldn't see anything beyond it.

yes bing is not the best of names to choose! also what about bling.com, ah it willl reap the spillover traffic ! but MS has bought out all the domain extensions for bing! lets wait and see,always good for the users to have competition in the providers,
Bing? What was wrong with Live? I mean, why not make the existing one that has traffic better, rather than pushing out something totally new to start from scratch again? Seems pointless to me.

Microsoft is known for taking a good concept (in this case many of Google's features) and making them suck.
I've seen the video on bing.com and I am not impressed. It's already what I get from Google in a format that is not user friendly. Nice try, Microsoft, epic fail!
It's no wonder people don't SEO for MSN search, Live search, Kumo search (now live search, surprise, surprise) etc... It's because once you rank top for a term, the search engine is scrapped!
