Search And Destroy

It seems Verizon is playing footsie with M$.  And M$ is boosting the figures for Bing in the process.

If you have a Verizon phone and press the search button, instead of it activating a Google search, it goes through Bing.  You can still search Google with a regular browser, but the built in Browse function goes through Bing now, without so much as a by your leave.

In case you notice an uptick in Bing usage, you know where it came from.

As I stated in my own journal previously, I used the Bing engine on my phone once... to search for Google. I then added Google to my favorites and do all of my searches since from Google.

I told that story to a person that works in a Verizon store. She lol'ed and said she would have to do the same. She pointed out that she can't stand Bing.

Hey M$, there are still ways to get good service, no matter how hard you try.
