  1. I use Bing to search information on Microsoft development tools, language and application

    This seems to be an area where Microsoft should really excel. However there is space to improve the results. For example I would like if the answer could be expanded to give immediately back code examples from MSDN

      • Picture perfect searches, coupled with outstanding photography, complements what would otherwise be mundane search results.

        Bing exceeds my expectations, and has replaced my long standing search engine. It is much better in all aspects.

          • bring back bird's Eye

            I think bird's eye was the BEST feature of bing maps. Without it can't face google maps. I use to work with it EVERY day in my work place but since then i need alternative source of information. I strongly suggest microsoft to bring it back online. Thank you

            • Search for locations I have to drive to for work.

              I love Bing maps, and sometimes I have to drive, other times I have to use public transportation, but unfortunately the latter doesn't have such strong points, but it's still handy, and I love the offline maps features on my Windows Phone, keep up improving your already great services, Microsoft. ;-)

              • I use it in my everyday searches at work.

                I'm constantly online at work. I love that I get rewarded while doing something I HAVE to do anyway. Plus, the news that is headlined on the home screen keeps up to date on the world outside. I have a better sense of what current events are happening because of Bing.

                • Bing Places API

                  I would like to know if you have an API for Bing Places. If no, are you planning on adding this on the future?

                  I would like to POST businesses from my web application to Bing Places.

                    • Every day I check for the return of food rewards

                      Food rewards made BING my only search engine. SO SAD, now it doesn't matter anymore.

                        • I typically use Bing to search for php, javascript and css references.

                          Always get the results I need right at the top of page one.

                              I like the birds eye view because I can see under obstructions and get a view of things I need to see that even streetside maps cannot show me.

                                • Bing Maps

                                  Bing maps allows me to search on an address. It then allows me to zoom in to verify certain pieces of information that will either let me accept or dispute freight charges. I also use Bing Maps to calculate mileage between two cities, so I can either help plan a route, or to verify hours.

                                        I work for an auto transport company. I use Bing often to look up specs of vehicles to ensure size and weight so I do not book more than what can fit on each carrier. It comes in handy as models change every so many years and we cannot remember all of them.

                                        • I used bing for work.

                                          Find a map platform that users are happy with and then stick with it. Dont be google. By the way, I use google now at work because bing tried too hard.
