Bing == Bing Is Not Google
Appropos Google; The name isn't quite maningless, it was supposed to be Googol but they messed it up - but it still bears close association to that number, for obvious reasons. And further, Googleplex bears a close resemblence to Googolplex. The naming mistake is actually not that bad of an idea. Google rolls better off the tongue.
I'm not sure what Bing means and what the marketing people were thinking about but there are probably some meaning there.
It looks like Bing is a search engine with domain-specific support, assisting in specialized queries with actual data, not just indexed sites.
Kumo was supposedly a code-name, so who cares about that one. Although aren't we getting tired of having nice code-names replaced with terribly verbose finalized names; Indigo vs WCF; Avalon vs WPF; rolling off the tongue?
Bing | Cheapest laptop with blablabla | Go
You don't Bing. You bin/go!
OK enough nonsense from me for now
