And the “what did you expect?” award goes to…

June 2, 2009

Microsoft released its new web browser “Bing” today. According to PC World, apparently there is some surprise that it efficiently finds pornographic video clips and displays them in convenient previews. I guess what surprises me the most is that the words “shocked to find porn” actually found themselves together. I mean, in this day and age should that ever be a surprise? Anyways, PC World reports:

One spicy Bing-related topic popping up on the Web today is the Bing Video Search preview feature. Some say it is every adolescent boy’s dream come true. Just set your preferences for Bing Video Search to unfiltered search results, and run a search for “porn” or whatever naughty search term you like on Bing. What you’ll find are explicit video previews from the deepest, darkest corners of the Web. As you can imagine, this trick has gotten some serious attention, and some bloggers have apparently spent the entire morning running these searches (in the name of news of course).

So…you typed “porn” in the search bar and found pornographic videos? So far, the only thing surprising about this is that it made the news. Of course, if the search engine could somehow produce a pornographic result in the top five results of ANY search, well, that would be newsworthy. Imagine typing in “Viola de Gamba” and getting…um…Renaissance chamber music..and smut.

Wow, I’m essentially 0/3 the last three posts on keeping things clean. Jeez, what does that say about me?

The Internet is a communication tool used the world over where people can come together to bitch about movies and share pornography with one another.
