Google Gripped By Fear Of Bing? Oh, Really?
The New York Post yesterday ran a squishy story with the nifty headline “Fear Grips Google,” (GOOG) that seems to be the talk of the tech blogosphere today on a fairly news-less Monday. The thesis is that the search giant has sprung into action out of concern of some of the early kudos Microsoft (MSFT) is getting for Bing, its new search engine.
Here’s an excerpt from the Post story:
“You’d think nothing would get under the skin of search giant Google.
But co-founder Sergey Brin is so rattled by the launch of Microsoft’s rival search engine that he has assembled a team of top engineers to work on urgent upgrades to his Web service, The Post has learned.”
