Not sure it matters, and not sure if the linked article is correct in its particulars. Much of what Google knows is only valuable because of being able to aggregate that knowledge across billions of clicks. For the most part, they don't really care about you as individually except as a means to correlate information. If Bing is to be competitive, they need to do the same thing. I am much more concerned about leaving my real data with Google, like my email, because we already know that the Chinese have hacked into that system. But that issue is not unique to Google, so it seems unfair to single them out.
I haven't found any improvement with Bing.A little off the subject, but...Both the "tech guy" (Leo Laport) on KOGO and KFI,and my computer technician advise to stay off Facebook. They cite both privacy and security problems.
I posted something similar a while ago: http://templeofmut.wordpress.com/2009/11/30/why-i-will-bing-instead-of-google-search/
I've tried Clusty, bing, yahoo, hotbot, everything I can think of-- none of them are half as powerful as google, and most of them are far more annoying. (hint:simple is *good.*)
I use Google for websites and Bing for images. I don't worry about political purity, I just want the results.
