Not too surprising that Bing might be slightly better in some cases, as it's pretty much been proven that Microsoft uses and combines search statistics from other search engines, including Google, as a basis for Bing. Which is cheating in a way, using data that others have developed without credit or compensation.
Heck, in a day I could write a fairly competent search engine if I did that.
I stick with Google.

|DavidN||Thing about Google is that different people will get different answers. The search results a biased to be 'more relevant' to you based on their knowledge of your use of any of their 60+ products. This isn't conspiracy theory; just read their terms & conditions and privacy statements.|

Reading this thread it makes me think you people automatically assume everything you're reading is accurate. I've done some searches on certain things and some of the answers are downright dangerous they are so wrong.
Some of the things I've seen although they will get you there aren't the right way and aren't repeatable. (generally)
Am I missing something? Google has never shown me where the answers where but hasn't told me how to do a darn thing.

Its because most people dont care to learn it. Google will tell you how to solve almost any problem, given enough research time. What counts is how hard/ how much time someone wants to invest into learning the processes neccessary to complete the given problem.
Every job is at stake to the internet dont be fooled. Its why every job should focus on customer service at this point, thats what the internet doesnt have at this point.
Do your job well, with a smile on your face, and be courteous to those you are working with and you thrive, not and you fail, this is the decline of many recent businesses. Its the reason we kick our competitors butts in town even thoug we have a smaller workforce in a. less frequented location

My husband was an IT tech, and if he doesn't know how to fix the problem, he finds a way. He understands what he's looking at and can make educated guesses, quantum leaps even, on how to proceed with it.
I, on the other hand, might as well be looking at ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. I can't fathom it. That might be because I don't give a hoot about it and I don't designate any brain space to learn it. I use it up on my own job.

Re: Google, farewell.
Bing blows google maps out of the water. Instead of the top down satellite google has, Bing going gives a birds eye view from several different angles. you can really see everything like from the perspective of a bird, not limited to that of a passenger as in google Street View. And you can rotate the angle from which you view the same point. Never question what am intersection may look like again.

I can tell u google negates my job more than it used to.
Im okay with that. I applaud anyone with the courage, or ability to read an article and perform a task,
However i dont ask google to perform my job function for me
But yes in any field it does have its positives

I did your two search on google and bing and the only reason bing gave any better results is because if you look, it omits the word water from your search and searches for "annual rain amazon", if you click to only search for "annual rain water amazon", you get results similar to google.
Asking annual rainfall amazon on either one would have given you millions of answer. If you're looking for rainfall, type rainfall, not rain water, then you get a bunch of people named rainwater in the results.
This isn't the fault of google, you just didn't ask the right question, it's not a mind reader.

I can find how-to or whatever to fix my car but as easy it may be for me, the majority will not feel competent in performing it. I perform simple maintanence but some things that I know or feel unconfortable I bring to a mechanic because I need my car to go to work.
Same thing applies here, the majority of people out there have no inclination to do it themselves. If they were, would we have so many services or business to cater to that need?
In our case, depending on the issue, the user may not have the access right to fix it most of the time. Application support is one of my duty because I work on deploying it to the desktop environment. We do upgrades every few years on software so it isn't unreasonable to search for the answer but it is unreasonable to not attempt to try it find it yourself especially being paid to provide the support.
