Bing™ Growing at Expense of MSN® ?

Bing is a search engine developed by Microsoft in 2009. In July 2009, there was a partnership between Yahoo! and Microsoft. Bing was integrated into the site to replace the search engine of Yahoo! in the U.S. and Canada. Currently, Brazil, Mexico and Australia are also affected by this change. The transition took place in stages and will cover France also in near future. The integration of Bing and Yahoo! will make a new image of the site because this search engine offers several new features and options such as price comparison.

There has been an increase in the use of Bing. ComScore reported that Bing has reached a market share of 12%. Without doubt, Bing is taking advantage over the competing browser. Microsoft is introducing new functions for Bing. Its determination to continue to compete with Google in this area is bringing the company to build Bing with much improved functionality to the delight of everyone. Recently Bing had reached a user base of 90 million, representing a growth of almost 50% during the last half of the year. Microsoft improved Bing’s interface, adding further enhancements, such as management of search and integration with Facebook.

Troubleshooting problems with Windows Live ID

Through Windows Live ID you can access your Xbox game account, mails, messages, photos, media, documents, and much more using one single Windows Live account and its password. But what if you have more than one Windows Live account? You might want to use all the accounts for mailing purposes but how to decide which account you should be using for communicating and connecting with other resources which can be accessed by Windows Live, and on what basis?

A Windows Live ID is an Email ID which can be used to sign in to Xbox Live, Hotmail, Zune, MSN, Messenger, SkyDrive, & Find My Phone. This one single ID can give you access to all these resources, if you were using multiple IDs to access these different portals then you can stop doing it that ways and just use one single ID for all. Your selection of configuring the best ID amongst the few available on your Windows Phone would depend upon your work practice. If you use the ID which you use for accessing your Xbox Live account then all your GamerTag information will get configured on your Phone along with your GamerTag Avatar and the Scores. You can use this ID to play your Xbox Live games on your phone. So if you give priority to gaming then you can configure this ID on your Windows Phone.

Other consideration should be for Hotmail. If you have hundreds of contacts in any of your email ID and you use your phone primarily for Emailing and Messaging purpose then it would be good if you configure this Email ID on your Windows Phone. With this you can also go ahead and share your photos on the web using it via Windows Live Photo Gallery and can also stay in touch with friends of your contact list using the Live Messenger.

Last but not the least the consideration should be given to the Zune. It’s being given last place because the MP3s which you have in your Zune Player under some other account will still work even if you use any other ID, but yes if you have lots of Zune friends then off course you can go with the configuration of this ID on your phone so that you can stay in touch with them.

In terms of best practice, Preference should be given to the Email usage of Windows Live ID because all the other things like Zune and Xbox can be reset with your Email ID but sending a new Email address to all your contacts would not be a good idea.
