Microsoft has rolled out Bing Travel
, the travel section of its Bing
search engine (or "decision engine" if you like). But just a few hours after it is out negative criticisms rained on it; some say that it's a ripoff of Kayak.com
and that it fails to perform as good as Kayak. Others say that it looks like it is Farecast, the the company Microsoft bought in 2008.
I don't know why in recent years people have become so hostile about everything that is Microsoft and yet they use its OS. That is just my observation. Why so hostile about the company? Bing and Bing Travel has just came out fresh from the factory, let's give them a little time to show what they've really got before we kill them off with our negative criticisms. Anyways, it doesn't mean to say that I am switching to Bing. I played with the new search engine for a day after it came out and decided that "Google" is a better verb than "Bing". I love googling
for information. But I tried binging
my name and sure enough, it came out in the Bing SERP.
