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.
