I went for 'decision engine', because it's in quotation marks. In fact, I hate Bing the engine. I always get it when I type in a faulty URL, and then Bing announces itself as the generous pointer to the right address. But I'm a Google user myself, and Bing will never do the job as efficiently.

On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

Google all day. Better engine, better results, better apps, better maps, no irritating adverts.

Well I voted for Crosby. Yes, yes wife-beater, child hater but we can't let those things get in the way of a good entertainer. :-)

Hah, I just knew Bing's character wasn't in sync with his clean, smooth, reassuring, and sometimes purely soporific music and acting...

I hear there was a conflict within Hitler's senior staff on assassinating Der Fuhrer because of his excellent karaoke skills.

Better looking too. Bing is ugly.

I went with cherries too. I do prefer Lambert cherries though. It's a shame they're so rare around here. I think they get shipped only once a year (from Washington State?)?

Ditto.

As far as the poll. I never could tolerate cherries, Hate Bing the search engine. So Crosby it is.
