Microsoft's Bing search engine is gaining in popularity and notoriety -- and perhaps a little infamy.
In a move that may not even surprise Gomer Pyle, Microsoft has tinkered with its Bing search algorithms to favor its own marketing, reports PC World. A search on Bing for the phrase "Why is Windows so expensive?" returns links for why are Macs so expensive and the price of vinyl windows. To be fair, the same search on Google returns the link on the price of vinyl windows.
There is already evidence that Microsoft has adjusted results that it has been called out on, but The Inquirer wonders whether Bing can be trusted. The article notes that Bing's search discrepancies seem to target Microsoft competitors, lessening the chances that such odd returns are accidental.
