This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
If biting your fingernails took up eight hours of your time every day, would you — could you — give it up? What if the way you're using email or web search is robbing even more hours, days, even weeks of your precious time? Think you could make a change?
A recent round of surveys about how we're spending our precious time online shows that most of us are doing the high-tech equivalent of chewing our nails to the quick every day, without even realizing it. From getting sucked-in to social media, to throwing away whole hours surfing the web like it's 1999, today’s technology should help save time, not just waste it.
As a Tech Life Editor and modern-mom on the go, I’m always looking for ways to save time, money, and sanity. So when Bing dared me to take the Bing It On Challenge, and bet that I would be so surprised by the results that I would give up a certain “search giant that shall not be named” for good, I took the challenge head-on. And guess what – they were right. Bing won. Time and time again, the little search engine that could – did. While replacing any bad habit with a good one takes a little time to get used to - I've already saved about 30-minutes a day by using Bing to track down information during my daily work.
I’m not alone. Recent independent research revealed that people preferred Bing web search results nearly 2:1 over Google in blind comparison test*. Try this challenge yourself now at BingItOn.com and you’ll see why.
I’m joining Bing and MomCentral today for a #BingIt Twitter party discussing everything search – ways to save time when searching, best new features, the Bing It On Challenge and more. The party is from noon – 1pm PT/3pm – 4pm ET. Just follow the hashtag #BingIt and join in the conversation.
Hope to see you there!
