Clearly, without a doubt Microsoft didn’t do their homework regarding Bing. When fortune cookies say “learn Chinese” and calls your search engine a disease it raises all sorts of red flags.
Anyone speak Chinese? Is this accurate or just some funny prank. Does the word “bing” mean Disease? If it is, it’s classic. Goes along the lines of the worst possible names for companies.
So what’s the word, does Bing mean Disease in Chinese?
If so, we could picture the advertising now:
“Use Microsoft to search for your bing” - Microsoft’s new theme
“find a cure for bing” – Google’s new Advertising
“when there’s a bing, their a cure” – Johnson and Johnson
