MacDailyNews Note: The missing “y” and period in Microsoft’s Bing description above is brought to you by Microsoft’s legendary attention-to-detail.

MacDailyNews Take: Mediocresoft might have forgotten a letter here and a bit of punctuation there, but it looks like they remembered to astroturf the so-called “Customer Reviews” for the app’s debut (a little carpet-bombing to soften up the target, you know) on Apple’s App Store. Apple, fix your “Customer Reviews” concept – it’s broken, useless, and a waste of space.


  1. I call bullshit.

    Looks like we have another Fake Review scam in the works. Click on the Reviewers names – a lot of them have only reviewed Bing or 2 or 3 other Apps. And most of their other reviews are one liners like, “Love this App!”, while on the Bing reviews they see fit to write lengthy paragraphs.

    Wouldn’t that be classic if Jobs kicked Microsux outta the store.

  2. I don’t get it. Microsoft is developing for a platform that they are constantly bashing and deriding? And even more to the point, why would anyone want an app from a company that is constantly bashing and deriding your device? This is just really bizarre.

  3. What Rike said.
    Except, maybe Apple is not trying to be a web crawler like the rest of the buggers and their grandma, but actually has an ambition and moxy to redesign the paradigm how we look for content (as opposed to search), and in so doing making all the algorithm patent holding cowboys obsolete by a sunny day in 2013.
