Haha.. Chandler Bing. I love the show Friends.

Microsoft been coming up with new stuff by innovating their old stuff. Like Hotmail is now called Live... looks they are choosing nice and simple words for their services.

P.S. Live Messenger rocks.

Well if you've seen the latest advertising slogans then you know Microsofts "Bing" is "The Sound of Found".

Industry buzz is that Bing is actually pretty good, and that Google is looking at their own answer to it.

Could be an interesting battle ahead. Huh

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bing_(search_engine)#Name_origin

In American slang, "bing!" is often used to signify "exactly!" or "yeah, that's it!"  As in, the sound of a bell ringing.

Well it could be named after Tony Soprano's strip club... or it could be an acronym for Bob's Interactive New Gadget.  Who knows?
