So I am in love with the Palm Pre. I do not own one, I am just waiting for gen 2 that has more memory. How they cannot have an 8, 16 and 32 GB model at launch is beyond me. (well I know that it is because of the type of chip they chose was only made in 8 to start with but that is besides the point).
Anyways, for those not following along they have sold out of all known phones, and continue to as well. People have figured out how to hack the phone (gain root access) which thus enables them to do basically whatever they want.
Well...since I cannot get enough information on it I decided to try searching for "pre" on Bing (which is now my default browser). As with anything new, there is always a learning curve, and I think they might need to revisit their algorithm to present results I am actually looking for.
Yahoo was the smartest (6 out of 7 links), Google was next (2 out of 7), and Bing, no where close (0 out of 6 - 1st response WAY OFF).
I also thought it was funny that Microsoft wants to buy Yahoo's search business only to come out with their own, however, after this unscientific test it makes a lot of sense.
Maybe it is because their algorithm puts a higher weight on older topics?
