This one is going to be a little long because the keynote was jam-packed so bare with me. The keynote for the first day of BUILD 2013 was kicked off by Steve Balmer. He made it very clear that Microsoft’s focus is on accelerating its time to market with products and product updates. His quote was that “Rapid release” is the new norm. He continued by showing off several new Lumias that have been buzzing around the internet for a while and announce that Sprint will now be carrying the HTC 8XT and Samsung ...
Windows Phone has a number of great capabilities built into it for developers. The Bing APIs allows you to easily give your application mapping functionality. You may just want to give users directions to a fixed location. What happens though when you want to give a user directions from their current location to an address that they are picking from application data? This article will cover just that scenario. Since almost everything in Windows Phone development is asynchronous this can get a little ...
This is more of a short rant than anything. For the most part I like Bing. Once in a while I still find I get better results from Google. The main thing I find myself missing that I had with Google is the blog search feature. All to often I can filter out a lot of garbage just by using that option. So my request is “when will Bing implement blogsearch”? del.icio.us Tags: Bing,Google,blogsearch ...
Bing is a new search engine from Microsoft that has been released exactly one month ago. During this month it has created a lot of buzz. Bing is advertised by Microsoft to be a “Decision Engine” and it seems like there is a general feel, or at least enquiry, about bing constituting serious competition to Google search. After reading Scott Hanselman’s recent blog post comparing Lenovo’s ThinkPad W700 with the W500, I decided to give bing a little try. Google VS. Bing I decided to use google-vs-bing.com ...
I first need to start this post with a thank you to Lance Robinson for submit all the required work and the idea of a Geekswithblogs.net search provider. Now when you visit the Geekswithblogs.net Homepage, if you drop down your search providers list you will see a “Geekswithblogs” listing as well as a highlighted link to add the Geekswithblogs search provider to your browser. With this, you then can use the Geekswithblogs search for finding answers to the questions you have. Our search is powered ...
Microsoft’s latest incarnation of it’s search engine, which has gone by a few different code names, is live a few days early. It’s still early, so it remains to be seen if Microsoft will be able to pull any search market share away from Google, but Bing looks like it may be a good start. The biggest difference is that Bing seems to offer better organization by putting the related searches list along the left side of the search results where you can see it without scrolling. It also provides a search ...
Go to https://addons.mozilla.org/... ( Update: This is the only official provider made by Microsoft itself)This is the URL I originally posted (from which the below screenshots come): https://addons.mozilla.org/... - Of course you are recommended to go to the official URL above. Check “Let me install this experimental add-on” and click “Add to FireFox” Now the add-in is there. In the search bar, click the little triangle at the left and choose Bing. In ...
If you are not on Twitter, let me spread this by @bing: Ladies and Gentlemen, www.bing.com is live. :) (rollouts will continue however to partners and other mkts, more to come) ^betsy Bing, if you don’t know, is Microsoft’s new search engine, also known as “Decision Engine” since it has features that help answer what you are wondering about rather than just display links. For those wondering about Live Search. I think I read somewhere that both search engines will remain there for a while, then Live ...
