    I don’t know. Even being in the united states, that heavy reliance on Bing is kind of a turn off. I’d much rather have the ability to select my service.

      Aside from the US focus, Bing (and the apps) are much better than I expected them to be, and will be bound to win over quite a lot of converts. Of course, there’s nothing to stop you ignoring or removing them and replacing then with something else. I look forward to seeing what Google does with the new UI design.

    Heh, I was always assuming you were living on the other side of the ‘pond. This prompted me to read the ‘about’ section of your site for the first time. I almost fear that this US-centrism is one of these weird issues that Microsoft does have problems with every couple of years where anyone would assume they’d know better (what with their worldwide consumer-base)…
    Being the guy who has been using the Windows 95-layout on all of his machines all the way through today with Windows 7, I still find the new interface to be a turnoff but then I don’t intend to buy myself a new computer for another three or four years.
    Also, Bundesliga is all the sports I personally need ;-)
