Microsoft’s new search brand, a decision engine: Bing

BingMicrosoft announced its new search brand – “Bing“. According to Microsoft they are calling it a “decision engine” instead of calling a “search engine”. Microsoft has a reason for that. They thought customers want to go beyond the usual search. Normal search engines help people in the best to provide them the information they want but they didn’t helping decision making. This is the area where Microsoft opens its shop of having a decision engine (after getting loses of its search brand Live.com).

Sun should promote its Java forum contributors

SUN Forums are ultimate source to get help about programming problems and support about Java platform. Its the largest community driven by Java developers. If you are a Java developer then you must have used these forums. You guys will be aware of Duke dollar. You assign duke dollars to your topic (to attract others to get them) and then you credited these dollars to the person who replied correctly. I have seen many forum members with the handsome amount of duke dollars. Sun should promote these duke dollar rich people as valuable professionals. Though Sun has a page on Duke star featured developer, but I didn’t see any other developer got placed over there.
