Hulu Hosting ‘Bing-A-Thon’ Tonight
In less than two hours, you’ll be able to watch Microsoft’s latest promotional push for its new Bing search engine: a live “Bing-a-thon” that starts at 8:00 pm EST on Hulu.com.
It’ll be co-hosted by Olivia Munn (of the G4 TV channel) and Jason Sudeikis (of Saturday Night Live). For a preview of what to expect, you might read what Ms. Munn recently posted on her blog after her first time using Bing:
“…you know when you Google something and everything comes up and then you have to go through it all deciphering if it’s really what you want? On, Bing, they only search from the most reliable sources leaving you with a search page of only the stuff you would really want.
And the actually page, looks really pretty.
This could be your new Google. Seriously. It’s that cool.”
So, tonight’s Bing-A-Thon is aimed at searchers who find Google too complicated, not trustworthy in its sources, and not attractive enough. Leave us a comment if you decide to tune in.
