Introducing the New Bing: Spend Less Time Searching, More Time Doing

Quote:
In 2009, we launched Bing with a simple proposition: people should expect more from a search engine.
Our aim has always been to help you do more with search, and over the past three years we have made exciting strides to realize that vision. Today we are taking a big step forward as we begin rolling out what is the most significant update to Bing since we launched three years ago. Over the coming weeks, we will be introducing a brand new way to search designed to help you take action and interact with friends and experts without compromising the core search experience.

First a little background. The search industry was built on keywords, links and labels Ė static nouns pointing to pages. This approach is great for finding sites but search is about more than simply finding information, itís also about taking action. Whether itís booking a flight, reading an article or buying a new pair of shoes, 68% of people tell us they expect to get something done when they type into a search box.

Now itís possible to do more than find pages with search. You are able to share nearly everything you do, including where you are and who you are, in real-time. From rich multimedia content to real-time streams to social conversations to applications that let you take action in the real world, digital connections are created that present the opportunity to do something. This presents an unprecedented opportunity to rethink how search should work. Suddenly an index of documents that does not embrace these changes is insufficient.

At the same time, research tells us that 90% of people consult with a friend or expert before making a decision Ėwhether itís something as simple as which train will take you uptown or who is the best dentist in Boulder, other people are often the most trusted source of information. We value input from our friends and opinions from experts but at the same time want comprehensive, relevant and unbiased results. Recent attempts at social search havenít unlocked the full potential of tapping our social networks. And the reason is pretty simple - social in search hasnít mirrored how people do things in real life.

The fact is, search hasnít kept pace. People have become as important as pages and search needs to evolve to embrace these changes. The challenge has been to figure out how to integrate the information you care about with the people who can be most helpful to you in getting stuff done.

Offline updates spend enormous time "searching for updates on this..."
I do a lot of offline updating from my own store. Many of the updates prepare for installation by "searching for updates to this computer". I suppose this is to examine the need for and suitability of the update. The first update searches pretty quickly, but then it's very slow - something like 5...

How much time to you spend looking at your desktop?
I'm curious as to why some people go to great extremes to customize their desktops? I spend very little time, if any, looking at the desktop. I usually have a number of apps open and never go to the desktop. Because I use the desktop so little, I also never use Aero Peek and don't really bother...
