A Microsoft-Facebook alliance plans an overhaul of Bing in an effort to loosen Google’s grip on the search engine market.
One thing to really use Bing for is their maps. They have a bird's eye feature that is great. See this library in Hilliard, OH. Drag the picture around with the mouse. You can basically do a flyover of the library. If you are describing roads or places to park this bird's eye view is great.
fersure fersure I alway Bing a map before I Google it. Right now you can't beat the bird's eye thing.
Thanks for the link; this is a superior view of topography up close.

I typed in my library's address, and at first I thought it looked really cool. When I zoomed in, however, it looked like they were using failry old data. The business park right next to us appeared to be a lot under construction, and those businesses have been open for 10+ years at this point.
