Masterstroke June 3, 2009

So the mighty Bing has arrived, and jolly good it is too.  You may have noticed that a significant proportion of the chatter online relates to Bing’s apparent ability to deliver fantastic porn results.  Now of course I can’t comment because I haven’t tried.  (No, really, I haven’t.  Properly, honestly, not).  But it did occur to me – and I hasten to add this is complete and utter supposition on my part – that if this was a deliberate decision (“let’s optimise our new search engine for the most searched for online commodity”) then it is total, complete and utter genius.  Enable people to search for adult content via Bing and the theory is they’ll stay and search for other stuff too.  Of course, Microsoft will never admit as much and just claim it was a happy coincidence.  But I’m not so sure.  It is, if you’ll forgive the phrase, a masterstroke.
