I tried the test www.BingItOn.com for 5 searches and the score was Bing 0 and Google 5.

OMG, that's awesome!   Google 3, Draw 2, Bing 0!

 

The marketing dweeb who came up with this needs to explore other options.

Google 3, Bing 2.   The ones that were Bing were less of a draw than the ones that were Google. I think that the Bing ones brought up more images.

5 out of 5 were a draw for me.  The results for each search were nearly identical.

Google 4 wins, 1 tie. This may match the Quizno's rats and new Coke as a marketing idea.

at least Bing maps show county lines, so that is a big win in my book.

Tried it a couple of times and came up with 2 draws and 1 win for BING.... I Guess it all depends on what type of search string you enter (pics/general/music/etc.)

Google Earth does county lines, zipcodes, and a plethora of other layers.

I noticed that google street view has no pictures for gated communities. I ws looking at some real estate in a gated community and noticed that. It makes sense since they cannot easily drive in to a gated community.

Have to give the win to Google.  Many more custom searches available using key terms such as "in url" "index" "mp3" in you search query and 100's more that allow for direct landings without pages of results to sift through.  These don't work to well in Bing.
