Strange thing! I just watched “Duplicity” on HBO and immediately, i got news about the second part of search engine spy games being played by Bing and Google.
“Duplicity” is a movie about corporate spying and what we are witnessing between Google and Bing is quite similar. Two corporate giants fighting it out. The survival and reputation of both depend on the success of their products. Both are bitter enemies out to crush each other by any means.
Recently, Google accused Bing of copying its search results and even conducted a sting operation to verify it. Bing on it’s part rebutted the accusation and said the whole affair as “spy novelesque”.
I don’t know who is right or wrong but the whole affair does suggest that big corporations are ready to do anything in this war. But what does it mean for a common user?
Lately, Google has been accused of showing spam and irrelevant results. Rather than improving their search result quality, they are more preoccupied with digging hole for their rivals. All the while, we do not find any improvement in search results.
People are fed up with these corporations who are spending millions on spying but do not have their ears to ground!
Google has introduced some exciting features to its search engine. To keep pace with websites like twitter and facebook that are updated with tweets and posts every second.
This service will be introduced gradually to all Google users and over the next week or so, everyone will be able to see updates posted just seconds ago, in Google Search result pages. Apart from tweets and status updates, items like blog posts and news articles. Earlier, Google had an option where news and articles from only “a few minutes” ago appeared in search results by default. But the new feature will be similar to Twitter’s existing search feature but on a larger and broader scale. Both, the Internet sensation Twitter and social networking giant Facebook, have confirmed that they have inked a deal with Google for real time results. Earlier, Twitter had made a separate deal with Microsoft to make live updates available in it’s new Bing search engine.
