"The Official Microsoft Blog"
I couldn't click out of there fast enough.

Okay, I'll have a look....

"Bing: The search engine that gives you great experiences using the whole Web"

LOL, good one, Microsoft. The whole web expect the stuff you censor that says bad things about YOU. I can get to this article through google, but chances are, I wouldn't get to such an article about Microsoft through Bing.

The most exploited browser on the planet is the choice for privacy? HAR HAR HAR

Let me ask any and all who are this angry and fearful of Google's new policy.....do you have any apps on your cell phone? Free ones, especially? Then, SURPRISE! You're probably already getting the same treatment! Those apps can list some SERIOUS access to your phone.

Google is making a MASSIVE effort to make things transparent and get the word out well ahead of time. And Microsoft is taking advantage of that.

And of course Microsoft doesn't need to make money off of information. Services like Bing couldn't be much more commercialized.
