Again I repeat the question: are they popping Champagne in Redmond over this? So Bing has allowed them to capture an additional percent or two of marketshare, and perhaps a touch more relevance. Maybe that is enough.
As an aside however, I finally noticed the “keyholes” in the images that give you some details about what the image is about. Definitely cool. Not terribly relevant to my life, but was a neat feature. I also like the fact you can scroll back through the archives of the images. Read more about how this all comes together here.
