Bing kicks off the State of Origin series

Bing Australia recognises that the State of Origin between New South Wales and Queensland showcases one of sport’s true great rivalries. You will notice that as well as a stirring image from the 2009 series, today’s homepage features Bing reference links to State of Origin history, series’ highlights from Bing video and even a Bing satellite map of ANZ stadium.


Is the surge of excitement that courses through your body when State of Origin kicks off in front of a sell-out crowd a familiar one to you? Well that’s exactly how we at Bing Australia feel every time we announce a new Bing feature! The latest we bring you is an improved result for Bing searches on countries and major cities around the world, including 60 different Australian locations. A search for Australia or Melbourne for example, will produce an instant answer card with an abundance of information including:


·         Weather forecasts

·         Slideshow image galleries

·         Economic facts specific to the searched country

·         The searched city’s main newspaper titles

·         Frommer’s guides’ most popular tourist attractions

·         The searched city’s sports teams and suburbs



Coming soon to the Bing Australia homepage:

Prepare your party hats for Bing’s first birthday (June 3) and ready yourself for a rousing homepage that will spur the Socceroos on to a successful campaign in South Africa (June 11).
