am now and still beta. i was just reading that in australia we still have the beta version. i've seen screenshots of the non-beta but even typing "bing.com" in the address bar gives me the beta. maybe when australia gets the update things will change(?)

edit: i didn't notice that i could change regions. selecting the US fixes the problem.

thanks mate...rep added

One wrong vowel and you're screwed.

EDIT: The Canadian page doesn't look too shabby.

Was just watching a movie on Hulu and saw an ad for a hulu special. June 8th at 8pm EDT. A 'Bingathon'. LOL.

I've reproduced the problem, that it doesn't work in Australia. Thanks for posting about this problem, I'm going to try to talk to the Bing team about this today!

edit: Just talked to one of the engineers, she says she'll look into it

Slimy if you do, you are my new best friend. lol

Bing does seem to be behind a bit when it comes to results, but it was just released so I suppose I can't expect it to be 'perfect'. Other then that its great.
