So, I got another message from Bing today – you know, the same people who are running the skewed ads poking fun at Google (for doing the same thing Bing’s been doing forever.)
It’s a really cheery “Update” – sounds good so far… then they drop the Bing Bomb… They’re taking away our ability to post deals or coupons for free. Presumably, that means either:
- You’ll soon have to pay to give away a coupon or
- You’ll never be able to post another deal ever.
And that’s supposed to be a good thing? I just don’t get Microsoft. Seems like they’re shooting themselves in the foot every time they turn around. Maybe they’ve been hitting the “Bing-Bong” too hard.
There name sounds a lot like “Google Places” – now called Google+ Local. Not very original.
