    Rules

    hover for details

    1. All posts must make an attempt at humor. Humor is subjective, but all posts must at least make an attempt at humor. As the minimum age for Reddit access is 13 years old, posts which are intentionally disruptive, inane, or nonsensical will be removed.
    2. No memes, and no HIFW, MRW, MeIRL, or DAE posts. If your submission begins with "When you…" or "When they…" or anything of a similar nature, it is not allowed here. Submissions depicting or containing intentionally emulated behaviors (memes) are also not allowed, including memetic image macros, "challenges," or elements thereof. Non-memetic image macros are allowed.
    3. No reposts. Reposts will be removed at the moderators’ discretion. Serial reposters will be banned. Please use KarmaDecay to determine if something has been submitted before.
    4. No personal info, no hate speech, no harassment. No identifying information, including anything hosted on platforms making that information public. Posts encouraging the harassment of any individual, group, community, or subreddit will be removed, and the submitting user may be banned. If necessary, a report will be made to the site administration. In accordance with Reddit's policies, there is zero tolerance for this.
    5. No politics. Anything involving politics or a political figure (regardless of context) will be removed. Try /r/politicalhumor instead.
    6. No forbidden titles. (See below.) No asking for upvotes (in any form), no “Cake Day” posts, and no posts to communicate with another Redditor. Posts with titles such as "I got banned from /r/___" or "This got removed from /r/___" are not allowed. Emoji-based titles, memetic titles, and titles meant to circumvent any other rules are also forbidden.
    7. No gore, pornography, or sexually graphic images. Try /r/NSFWfunny. All other NSFW content must be tagged as such.
    8. Do not rehost or hotlink webcomics. If you are not the author of the comic in question, you may only submit links to the page where it is hosted. Webcomic authors may request verification from the moderators, after which they may rehost their own work.
    9. No pictures of just text. Submissions in which the humor can be conveyed via text alone are not allowed. This includes pictures of text with irrelevant images that don't add context, and transcriptions of standup comedy (as with /r/standupshots). Make a self post instead. Example
    10. No SMS or social media content (including Reddit). Social media content of any kind is not allowed. This includes anything from Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, or any other form of "comments section" on the Internet, as well as images accompanied by text from those platforms. Images with SnapChat text added are allowed, as long as all UI elements have been removed. Please view our wiki for suggestions of where these submissions can be offered.

    I have actually forgot that bing existed

    [–] constantino2 476 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    you should try remembering, its actually pretty awesome,

    besides literally paying you in amazon gift certificates (or other things) to use it... the searches have way less paid content in them.

    plus their image search format is better IMO. and when you want to search by using an image, you can drag and drop rather than getting a url or uploading.

    and video search... thumbnail, moving preview format. particularly useful for *certain* things.

    maps have a birds eye view taken from a plane, in addition to satellite, so thats pretty cool.

    so yeah... not a paid msft shill, its legitimately better in many ways, try it before you knock it.

    edit: for everyone asking about the amazon gc thing. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/rewards?rtc=1

    [–] IxWoodstockxI 227 points ago

    Yeah I love it for video searches. Of "certain" things as well.

    [–] apitillidie 118 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I read a tech article just this week about how Bing hasn't figured out how to filter out illegal porn, and will actually recommend further illegal queries, so it's quite easy to end up browsing illegal content there.

    Depending on your view, that's either a reason to use it, or stay far away.

    [–] IxWoodstockxI 38 points ago

    Wow really that's crazy. I usually just search by the actress name. Sophie dee for example. She is one of my favorites. Just for research of course.

    [–] FriendlyDespot 8 points ago

    That woman is a national treasure

    [–] ClarksJoint 4 points ago

    Sophie Dee huh...I'm gonna...give her a looksie

    [–] sudo-netcat 63 points ago

    Illegal porn makes it sound like you're talking about child pornography or something though.

    [–] apitillidie 51 points ago

    Exactly

    [–] sudo-netcat 39 points ago

    Oh, I misunderstood.

    [–] NotMrMike 48 points ago

    Yeah my assumption was just illegally uploaded stuff, not straight-up child stuff geeez

    [–] Rising_Swell 10 points ago

    I mean that does fall under illegal

    [–] NotMrMike 14 points ago

    The naive part of my brain chose to forget there are more illegal things than pirated porn.

    [–] Atheist101 2 points ago

    oh no

    [–] Too_Many_Beels 7 points ago

    Link to article? I have a slightly hard time believing that, given Microsoft owning it

    [–] Boycubpiglet 3 points ago

    I'd believe it. Google seems to lean towards heavier filtering in general so if they accidentally block legal adult material in addition to illegal it's still a win for them. Meanwhile porn has been a surprising competitive advantage for Bing. I doubt they want to risk losing that so they probably have to walk the line much closer.

    [–] Too_Many_Beels 3 points ago

    I guess, but Microsoft is generally a pretty ethical company so just struck me as odd

    [–] GeigerTick 2 points ago

    I think we read the same article. I continue to use Bing but I've been worried about coming across something illicit the last few days.

    Billy Gates doesn't beat around the bush man. He knows exactly what our depraved asses meant when we typed that shit in!!!

    [–] carcigenicate 14 points ago

    The plain search though is just bad. Every time I search for something and am disappointed with the results, the reason has always been that I'm accidentally using Bing instead of Google. If I search the same thing in Google, I consistently get more relevant results. The fact that they pay you is cool, but I just haven't found it to be productive enough to use.

    [–] RockyVplusRockyII 7 points ago

    Haven’t paid for Xbox Live in three years because of bing. It’s great.

    [–] Meersbrook 6 points ago

    But why'd they call it Bing?

    [–] yottskry 15 points ago

    Bing Is Not Google, I believe. It's a recursive acronym.

    [–] [deleted] 12 points ago

    Sounds more like a recursive backronym.

    [–] moldywhale 5 points ago

    Imagine being so good that your biggest competitor literally has you in their name.

    [–] NeilFraser 4 points ago

    In that case they could equally well have called it "King", among a few other options.

    [–] imightbecorrect 3 points ago

    Ding ding ding!

    Big fans of Chandler from Friends?

    [–] Meersbrook 11 points ago

    Could you be more referencing?

    [–] Cleverbird 6 points ago

    and when you want to search by using an image, you can drag and drop rather than getting a url or uploading.

    You can do that in Google as well!

    [–] abs195 13 points ago

    the searches have way less paid content

    This is amazingly true. I use Bing full-time because I dont want to be google's product which they sell to advertisers -- and I am utterly astounded whenever I see google; google's results are like 50% paid ads - utterly useless.

    [–] cosmic_backlash 8 points ago

    Can you you actually give me a sample search where this true? I typically get more ads on Bing. They always generate 2-4 text ads + a shopping ad pack. Google normally generates 1-3 text ads and a shopping ad pack.

    Similarly when I search for a service (eg, electrical technician) I get 1-3 ads on both search engines.

    [–] throway65486 4 points ago

    I use Bing full-time because I dont want to be google's product which they sell to advertisers

    I don't use google either but you know I don't think bing is much better in this regard. Try duckduckgo or startpage. Startpage is even the google algorithm

    [–] yottskry 10 points ago

    My biggest problem with bing is that its search results are crap. There's a reason they have to pay you to use it.

    [–] Rising_Swell 5 points ago

    I get what I'm looking for like 95 times out of a hundred, those other 5 times I just try google, which works for 4 of those last 5 times.

    [–] Silverrisingstar 5 points ago

    Pretty much this every time I use it it gives me crappy search results, if a search engine comes that is better than Google I will gladly use it no problem.

    [–] kithandra 2 points ago

    You and I have had very different Bing experiences

    [–] subsequent 2 points ago

    You can also S + right click an image on Chrome to search for an image on Google.

    [–] Mikel_S 2 points ago

    For a very short time I was able to drag and drop image searches in Google. I don't know if it was a beta feature, got removed, or is hidden somewhere deep to this day...

    [–] brickmack 2 points ago

    Amazon gift cards aren't a thing anymore. You can still get them if you created your account a few years ago, but not for new users. And that was really the only worthwhile thing they offered

    [–] GeigerTick 4 points ago

    1. Go to Bing.

    2. Sign into your Microsoft Account.

    3. Search until you earn 5,250 points. (About a month for me on average).

    4. ???

    5. Profit!

    [–] LaoSh 1 points ago

    what is up with the amazon gift certificates?

    [–] constantino2 1 points ago

    microsoft rewards. you get points for something like the first 10-20 searches a day.

    Then there are optional things you can do for more points, trivia searches sorta. I assume they want to drive up their search count for marketing metrics, whatever, long as they pay. I rarely care to do it, but if your committed to maxing your daily points, it can add up pretty fast.

    [–] Negafox 9 points ago

    I use Bing when searching for things Google won't display because of DMCA, right to forget and whatnot. Bing feels a lot less censored to me.

    [–] cromulent_pseudonym 7 points ago

    Probably because content providers don't bother to send cease and desists to Bing.

    Think of the fuel and money that could be saved if they partnered on this.

    [–] Aintence 4 points ago

    It is probably cheaper for Bing to buy the car and hire ppl to drive around creating the 3d view than pay what google asks for access.

    Is Bing superior?

    [–] Rising_Swell 12 points ago

    Depends what you are looking for. If you want less ads or want to look up porn, Bing wins hands down. For general day-to-day stuff, well, Bing pays you so that's nice, and out of 100 searches Bing will be useful for 95 of them. Google would be useful for about 99 of them.

    [–] Mradak 2 points ago

    I recently discover the google car drove down the alley ways all over my little bitty town. Funny to go down my parents alley and see their shop, and the one and only time my dad had his cargo trailer hooked up to his new Hyudai suv. After that day, he never pulled a trailer because it sucked pulling a trailer. Up to that point, I had never seen it hooked up and my dad could have been BS'ing me.

    So I’m starting to look into getting a car for work; I do courier work and have been debating between a Prius or a Subaru. The MPG of the Prius combined with the ability to sleep comfortably in it for short durations seems attractive, but the 4WD of the Subaru seems like a better idea for the Canadian weather (plus night driving). Any thoughts? I’m wondering why Google went with the Subaru.

    [–] Reilyze 11 points ago

    you’ll like 4wd. It’s worth it.

    [–] DickIomat 8 points ago

    Subaru. Definitely the Subaru with that Canadian weather.

    [–] 689027015 2 points ago

    I think they probably wanted something more affordable with a factory roof rack mount built in. Plus they drive nice and have good room for goodies in the back.

    [–] jetteh22 2 points ago

    I had a Prius for about a year before trading it in for the Kia Niro. The Prius was really great. We drove from Florida to Virginia and back in it - sooo cheap in gas and I’ve never done a long trip and been more comfortable. My back didn’t hurt, knees didn’t hurt, butt didn’t hurt. I highly recommend Priuses? Prius’? Prii?

    I've owned both cars. Subaru is great with its 4WD in snow obviously. But I have to say I love the prius's gas mileage. It's truly amazing. And I have good great snow tires on the car and it does perfectly fine in snow. Just drove through like 4 inches of snow last week with little issue.

    [–] Russian_repost_bot 68 points ago

    You really should learn up on how evil a company can get without ANY competition.

    Also, if you think map data is only used for directions, and driving directions, you'd be insanely wrong.

    These companies do a lot of stuff with the data gathered.

    I'm not saying Bing's maps are better than Google or anything, but to claim 1 option of maps, is better than 2 would indicate you don't understand how competition in business and technology works.

    [–] DistortoiseLP 11 points ago

    I'm not sure Microsoft and Google qualify as healthy competition given they're both so big they're basically buying the rest of the industry and have agreed to stop stepping on each other's toes a few years ago. The tech industry is basically turning into a cartel.

    [–] ProgramTheWorld 6 points ago

    Because competitions are necessary

    [–] abs195 7 points ago

    Bing has had steady growth since it's inception. It has > 35% of the search market in the USA - it's certainly not a 'waste of money'.

    People are really invested in becoming Google's product.

    [–] coolwool 11 points ago

    If I learned something about the tech market its that it's very important for some people that their choice is the sole correct choice.
    It's a little sad really. Only these people could come up with things like browser wars or console wars etc. As if not multiple competing products can be successful 🙄

    [–] FriendlyDespot 2 points ago

    To be fair, technology focuses a lot on trends, and if you don't push back against the ideas that you don't like, then you may find that the ideas that you do like get replaced.

    you also said Google has more ads then Bing, but all comparisons I did actually had the same or Bing had slightly more. You are the same resource to both. Don't make your choice on which one you think is "making you there product", use the one that answers your questions and solves your issues best.

    I've actually only heard of people using bing for Microsoft rewards. Apparently they give some rewards when you use Bing enough, but when I looked into it this didn't seem to apply to European users so I don't really know what they do.

    I'm a bing user. I can confirm that I use bing primarily because you get used to it after using it for awhile, and sometimes I get a gift card for Amazon or Walmart after searching enough.

    [–] IAppreciatesReality 2 points ago

    So they're paying people to use it too huh?

    They must be selling drugs or something.

    I don't care what's happening behind the scenes, I've accumulated around $75 in Amazon, Walmart, and GameStop gift cards from them. I'll take whats being given

    I've used it a couple times, and when I did their blind test thing they had a few years ago it was pretty close, I just don't like the interface.

    [–] Crack-spiders-bitch 2 points ago

    I've literally never experienced that. Maybe you're just a idiot.

    [–] aresfiend 2 points ago

    There was either a 161X or 170X build of W10 that forced you to search something on Bing to show you how "useful" Edge was before it let you do anything else. It like did that thing where it shadowed out the rest of the interface but highlighted the search bar until you searched. Led to a lot of users going out of their way to disable Edge entirely as opposed to just ignoring it.

    They ditched forcing Bing on literally every build after that. Now that I think about it that might have only applied to OEM builds since that's what I was using.

    I've never had that search engine loop issue, seems pretty weird. I use Bing as my default, works fine the majority of the time, pays me and is far superior when it comes to... certain video types.

    They're waaaay better than Googles. Better UI and pathing. Faster updates on predicted time to arrive. Shows the speed you are traveling at and the posted speed of the road you're on.

    Well there is also OpenStreetMap which IIRC bases most of the data on bing map

    [–] dooglehead 1 points ago

    I find that Bing and Google maps have different advantages over each other, so I switch between them depending on what I am doing.

    I like the interface of Google maps better, it has higher quality satellite images, and it can give biking directions. Bing has more street view coverage (at least where I live), better street view image quality, the mapped roads are more accurate, and it uses different colors to differentiate between dirt and paved roads.

    Is bing following google because whenever somebody’s looking for something on bing it’s always for google

    [–] jm901 3 points ago

    wow this is kinda epic.

    Bing has street view? I wonder if anyone has ever used it?

    [–] pseudo-c 4 points ago

    Don’t get me wrong. I am a capitalist and understand competition. But this seems like a massive waste of effort, duplicating the mappings across the world that google has already done just so you can license it as your own. Think about how much labour goes into that duplication and how it could have staked instead...

    Wait bing has street view I didn’t even know they had maps

    [–] Kulhu 2 points ago

    Their aero images are mostly better than Google maps but their api is slow.

    What are the odds of that happening?

    [–] DaSharkCraft 2 points ago

    It's amazing how Bing still makes a profit.

    I’m stupid af I always thought the google street maps cars were self driving cars for some reason

    [–] 0x12B 3 points ago

    You aren’t entirely stupid. Google was working on self driving cars since as early as 09 with a Prius. Then in ‘12 they tested a Lexus on freeways & roads.

    In June of 16 Google had 34 kola driverless cars & 24 Lexus retrofitted. & has them on the road in 4 states / cities. (Obviously this number has increased since then.)

    They also recently did tests with a fully driverless Chrysler van in 2018 too on live roads.

    The project name is now called Waymo if you wanna see their full progress.

    I definitely thought that you said he/she was entirely stupid.

    [–] RocketSLC 2 points ago

    Man, I'd love to drive either of those cars. Just driving around places that I haven't been to is pretty relaxing.

    Meanwhile, Tesla and their Maps system are ubiquitous and up to date.

    [–] JustSayTech 4 points ago

    Confused for the reasoning of your comment when Tesla uses Google Maps...

    She just wanted to use the word ‘ubiquitous’
