The new Bing jingle - Bing Goes The Internet

Summer - time for some fun

WBW's mission is to highlight developments in web marketing that deserve a few additional minutes of your time. This week, at the height of the summer season, we can safely say that we have looked at everything and that your time is better spent preparing for a fun weekend.

True, Google purchased video compression technology company On2 and is now a competitor with the Flash that currently powers their YouTube. Twitter got knocked completely offline (not even the Fail Whale survived) by a nasty denial of service attack on Thursday morning. Then, just as Microsoft was beginning to look cool with Bing they selected a Bing jingle that astounded everyone and probably set them back a few years.

But overall you can safely head to the beach guilt free. We just wanted to send you the list of Most Useful Posts, let you know about a new study showing that 24% of Twitter belongs to robots and to give you a chance to see the Bing jingle for yourself.
