Midgarn writes "Techspot posts that Microsoft has officially announced its new search engine, Bing.com. As to the name, the Techspot reporter cites, " In their words: "You probably didn't wake up today expecting an entirely new search experience. But — Bing! — here it is." "

There's a missed opportunity here for a jingle tie-in, but I guess Whoomp.com wanted too much money for its URL. (Or it's already connected to a bad site. Our firewall blocks it at work. :) )"
