Some folks take coals to Newcastle – I take beer bottle openers to Australia. Though I’m officially on vacation, we Bing folks never really rest, especially when there’s an opportunity to spread Bing love via beer. Constant vigilance is our watchword!

How Many Calories in a Burger? What’s 2^2^2^2^2? Bing and Wolfram|Alpha Have the Answers

One of the things we’ve tried to do with Bing is to bring customers the information they are looking for, presented in a useful way. If we can adequately infer a user’s intent, we can bring them a much more compelling experience than an endless list of links.
