Windows 7: Today, Bing UK is showing a swimming whale (?) in icy waters

Today, Bing UK is showing a swimming whale (?) in icy waters

If you are using Bing and have it set to the United Kingdom you can see a whale (?) swimming somewhere icy waters. Beautiful.

It's the second time, that I know of, that Bing has moving objects in its UK webpage.

Yes, it's showing in the U.S. too. Looks like 2 or possibly 3 whales --- they're really FABULOUS!!!

I want to be careful not to exaggerate or jump to conclusions but I think moving objects on the pages of search engines such as the like we are seeing now on Bing will soon be primitive compared to what's coming.

Bing will undoubtedly spur its competition into using moving objects on their web pages and we the consumer will benefit - greatly.

You aren't seeing things. Bing does this in the US seemingly at least once a week for the last few months.

Thanks for the enlightenment. But doesn't what you say raise the question WHY is this being done only in America?

What do you think?

Too bad they don't have an advanced search page:

Perhaps roncerr was being ironic Bing's advanced search is not very advanced when compared with Google's
