[TC] Microsoft Europe tweet mocks Google’s copy-cat background image feature - Page 5

post #41 of 56
I don't know why everybody is complaining, I think it looks great. Yes it copied Bing, but it still looks great.

Not to mention you can disable it. Is there really anything wrong with having the feature available if people want to use it?

Isn't innovation taking something that exists and making it better?
post #47 of 56
Wait, there are people who don't have Google accounts?

I don't know what I'd do WITHOUT my Google account. Between the E-mail and Finance services, I use Google so much every day that it's become an ingrained habit.

Implying Bing hasn't copied Google in any way shape or form.

I agree completely. It's not like they're forcing you to use it, and so what if MS did it first. It's not like they ever copied anyones ideas and improved on them.
