A couplet I wrote, and a reason why Bing will never, ever outshine Google.

The actual translation, for those interested, would be –

“I never did say what I knew you wouldn’t hear

Oh, how you misinterpreted my silence, dear!”

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

    • I think Twitter has a deal with MS,it uses Bing as the default translation engine. I think I moved from Askjeeves to Google and never really tried any other search engine seriously (except wolframalpha a couple of times). Yahoo is just as bad?

      • I haven’t tried Askjeeves. Yahoo doesn’t want to give in, but has a long way to go. Don’t tell them πŸ˜€

      • askjeeves was a popular search engine way back in the 90s. I forget who took them over and basically ensured it died a slow death. Yahoo is in bad shape, definitely! πŸ˜€

  10. I’m not on Twitter but that would definitely get a heart and a retweet. Have a wonderful Saturday, HB.
