Is Bing Smarter Than You?
Tuesday, 19 October 2010
When touch-typing, I just blasted this into my browser address bar:
And then pressed enter before my brain could engage the brakes on my fingers. It turns out that I had my right hand off by one column on my keyboard. It was a column to the left, and I resigned myself to a page of garbage results.
(Edit: The first result is, of course, not garbage :) )
Where do you think I was trying to go?
Bing knew, and I’m still caught somewhere between disbelief and amazement.
