Bing it on

Gawker has a field day on Microsoft's latest attempt at playing catch up with Google... Judging from Microsoft's past showing, this new venture promises to be as pathetic... I guess if this fails they can name their next search offering Crosby... 

On Thursday Microsoft unveiled BING, its new search engine thingie. They're hoping that before long you'll forget how to "Google it" and will instead "Bing it." Unfortunately we think the name reminds us mostly of Sopranos strippers and the guy who knocked up Elizabeth Hurley.
... Meanwhile, some tech people were already noting that Bing is also an unfortunate acronym: "But It's Not Google."
