    Exploring Mars With Bing

    I remember dreaming as a kid what other planets might be like, and I am sure my parents loved that I stuck all of those glow in the dark stars and planet stickers on the ceiling of my bedroom. I mean really, how many of those floating planet projects did we put together growing up? I’m sure that school projects are single handedly keeping the Styrofoam ball industry in business. To be young again! Why the sudden nostalgia for science class? Aside from the cool image of the M82 galaxy on Bing yesterday , tomorrow is the opening of the new “Facing Mars” exhibit at Seattle’s Pacific Science Center which will run from January 30 – May 9, 2010. There is something for everyone at this new exhibit, I can hardly wait to experience Mars and I am sure tons of kids can’t wait to see it either. Bing and the Pacific Science center have partnered to help bring attention to the importance of science education through a contest called “Captain Mike’s Mars Adventure” to let kids explore Mars through Bing . A few winners were chosen to join in the ribbon cutting festivities as well as receive some gifts and a donation to their school for science...

    Simplifying Money Matters with Bing

    There are times I get to the end of the day and I am wondering where my day went. I am usually thinking this while looking at my “to do” list with nothing checked off and I am asking myself “how can I make this easier?” Well, the team at Bing has recognized this and is trying to make those everyday tasks easier to accomplish while giving you some time back. Some of you have already seen the recipe pages we launched recently – certainly an action item on a lot of people’s list of things to do is figuring out what will you make for dinner. But if you are like me and are a disaster in the kitchen, an action item for you might be managing your portfolio. Not only is it something I have to do I actually enjoy researching investments specifically in US stocks and funds. Given the recent shock to our financial system we have seen more and more people interested in keeping track of what is happening with their money and with the stock market. Thus we developed an in-depth "stock and funds pages" which covers most US stocks and funds. To see the stocks and funds you are interested in simply enter a ticker in the search box e.g MSFT.

    Dr Bing: Giving Free Reign to Head and...

    Tomorrow we’ll be at the Sundance Film Festival at the world premiere of Para Fuera, An Intimate Portrait of Dr. Richard Bing. As some of you may recall we talked about Dr. Bing last October on the occasion of his 100 th birthday . I still love that story about how we met (and it shows the power of a good fax these days in our overcrowded inboxes!) and I’ve told it and the lessons I’ve taken away from our meetings to dozens of people at dinners and parties. Now you all get to meet him . When I wrote the first blog post a few months ago I said we were going to make a movie about him so more people could meet the man behind the name (and behind pediatric cardiology, PET scans, 200 pieces of music, a few hundred medical journals – I could go on). The inimitable Sean worked with our buddies at CAA to find a director who could tell Dr. Bing’s story – but more important to me was to find someone who could show the twinkle of his persona in his 100-year old eyes. His accomplishments seem less important than what they’ve taught him as a person. It’s almost as though the act of accomplishing was more valuable than the outcome. ...

    Lights, Camera, Sundance

    Snow, sunshine, a good film or two and good company…does that sound like a good time to you? Well it did to us, so we packed our bags (ok…Stefan and a few others packed their bags) and headed down to Park City, Utah to attend the Sundance Film festival . The Bing team will be down there showing the attendees how they can use Bing to navigate through Park City using Bing Maps , learn about the hottest films, and plan their festival activities. The team is also excited to catch the showing of the documentary about the life of Dr. Bing on Monday. You can catch some of the activities on TV on E! and online on MSN and Hulu . There will be special episodes of “The Daily 10” filmed from the Bing Bar at Sundance that will air throughout the weekend and one thing that I know Stefan is excited about is G4’s (Attack of the Show) Olivia Munn will also be reporting from the Bing Bar. If you are there and want to know where you can meet up with the team from Bing, make sure you are following them on their twitter handle for the event @bingevents and if you are stuck (left behind…thanks Stefan) at home in some drab not so winter not so spring weather...

    Coming Together to Bring “Hope for Haiti...

    We have all witnessed how a natural disaster can devastate a country and how paralyzing it has been to the beautiful people and country of Haiti. However, we have also witnessed the agility and compassion of aid workers from around the world, as well as the philanthropy of everyday world citizens who have already given to the relief efforts. Technology has played an important role in enabling people to donate to the disaster relief efforts more quickly than ever before whether that’s online or mobile texting For example by just texting “Haiti” to 90999 a $10 donation can be added to your phone bill to contribute to the work of the American Red Cross . We here at Bing and MSN have been working to help with these efforts in a number of ways. One of the most important things we can do is to encourage people to help raise funding to support the relief and rebuilding efforts. We are very excited to be one of the many partners of MTV and George Clooney’s international telethon, “Hope for Haiti Now.” MSN and Bing will be webcasting live footage from the event on January 22, 2010 starting at 8:00 p.m. ET, 4:00p.m. PT and 7 p.m. CT, the event will...

    Cooking up a storm with Bing Recipes

    After watching Julie and Julia I think everyone might have a little bit of Julia Child inside of them somewhere (even Stefan…who would’ve thought he had an apron with his name on it). So when you find yourself looking for that new recipe to whip up for dinner or your next cocktail party, Bing makes it easier by providing cooking recipes and details in our new detailed recipe results. Bing pulls from a number of popular recipe websites (delish.com, MyRecipes.com, epicurious.com, etc.) to bring you correlating recipes that you can sift through by holiday, meals, ratings, and my personal favorite, convenience (with a 10 month old at home, quick is key) and much more. Stefan and I sat down the other day to dive in deep on how you can use this new feature and to figure out what he should make for dinner since the weather has been so nice: (Please visit the site to view this video) Whether you’re planning dinner tonight or getting an early start on planning your Super Bowl menu, we hope our new recipe feature comes in handy.

    Bing Maps: Adding Apps, Dropping Beta!

    Are we all back from the holidays yet? For some on the maps team, the holiday’s biggest gift was getting to work on updating the Bing Maps experience based on what you told us you wanted to see. Why are things in beta anyway? It’s so we can try new experiences, hear what you like and don’t like and understand what is hard for you all to use and how we can make it easier. Fast forward six weeks: we’re ready to take the wipe that beta clean off the map. Get it? Anyone? Anyone? So what does this sans-beta map experience mean for you? We improved the speed and performance of Bing maps by focusing on the default page load time. Notable performance gains were also made in the speed of routing driving directions We updated the user interface to make features and map apps more discoverable and to make it easier to use the legend. We’re taking streetside imagery international by adding Vancouver and Whistler to the database in honor of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Make sure you go and check it out! We will also continue to add new applications on a fairly regular basis. Today we have released two new apps, the first lets you tweak the appearance...

    Bing Autosuggest – Keeping You Current

    Over the past couple months the Bing team has been working hard to make your search journey a bit easier. One of the ways we have tried to do that is through improvements to autosuggest. Autosuggest helps you get to results faster by suggesting words or phrases that match the first few keystrokes of your search. These suggestions help you type less and get you on your way to better search results faster. Our research shows that approximately 45% of search queries result in either a user conducting an immediate re-query, or abandoning the page altogether. We at Bing are continually improving the performance of autosuggest to reduce these problems. In fact, we recently incorporated breaking news and hot trending queries within autosuggest. Updated every 15 minutes, trending queries balance timeliness and relevance to connect you with the most prominent or topical events happening now. For example, if you didn’t get a chance to watch the Golden Globe Awards, autosuggest helps you get to the latest news and recent winners. Curious to know when Tiger Woods will return to golf? Start typing “Tig” and autosuggest surfaces relevant queries that can help connect...

    Updates to Bing Privacy

    Today we sent a letter to the Article 29 Working Party notifying them of our intention to make a change to Bing’s data retention policy. Specifically, we are reducing the amount of time we store IP addresses from searchers to 6 months. Currently we keep that information for 18 months before we delete it. Generally, when Bing receives search data we do a few things: first, we take steps to separate your account information (such as email or phone number) from other information (what the query was, for example). Then, after 18 months we take the additional step of deleting the IP address and any other cross session IDs associated with the query. Under the new policy, we will continue to take all the steps we applied previously – but now we will remove the IP address completely at 6 months, instead of 18 months. We think this gives us the right balance between making search better for consumers (we use the data to improve the service we offer) and providing greater protection for the privacy of our users. This is a strong step forward in our journey to protect the privacy of our customers while providing a great set of search tools. For additional details on this check...

    Bringing Knowledge into Health Search

    The new enhanced Bing Health search experience is live – focusing on further enabling people to quickly get relevant information and make better decisions. We’re providing more content from new partners and augmenting instant answers with hard-to-discover data that helps users get more out of their health search experience, both on- and off-line. Consider a query like “ type 2 diabetes ”. Bing instantly highlights key pieces of information: Bing discovers a relevant document in its library of health resources and presents a smart summary related to the query. In addition, Bing uncovers key related topics by analyzing an index of medical sources and extracting meaningful data automatically. In this case, the user receives instant guidance through short lists of other conditions related to the query (for example, “ obesity ”), medications that are important to know about (for example, “ insulin ”) and US medical centers that are active in the field. Users may select any of these points of interest to continue their search in a new area. For example, by clicking on Massachusetts General Hospital the user can drill down into that...
