Search Engine Updates

It seems that both Microsoft and Google have started to beta their new search engines. The new Microsoft Bing looks really pretty and somehow actually returns relevant results (unlike their current production-grade Live Search which has been replaced by Bing) whereas Google's new Google Squared isn't quite so functional/effective from what I've seen thus far. Maybe I need to use Bing a little more to test the relevance of its results and see if it *really* has improved or just looks prettier.

Google Squared seems to need to be massaged a lot to to get decent results, and that's not going to work for quick searches, but I (kinda) like what they are doing with the results.
