MICROSOFT EMPLOYEES have been blathering on about Bing 2.0 and ultrathin laptops using Twitter.
During an annual meeting held at a baseball field Microsofties who should have been doodling and trying not to fall asleep decided to tweet about what was going on instead.
The twits' tweets revealed some juicy details about what to expect from the firm in the coming months, including some scant details on the next release of the Vole's search thing, Bing 2.0. "Bing 2.0, out this month, has some exciting new features. Imagine seeing maps plus pics from the neighbourhood of a restaurant to try," tweeted Monte Enbysk, senior editor at Microsoft Office Live. We assume that he had just seen a demo of the new version and that it is due out 'this month'. Monte's status update appears to have been subsequently removed.
Software design engineer Sushil Choudhari was more enthusiastic and apparently listening a bit closer than Enbysk as he narrowed the release date down a bit. "Saw the demo of Bing 2.0, super impressive! Watch out its release next week!!", he twitted. We'll narrow it down further by saying that it will be out soon.
Another commented that he had seen a laptop running Windows 7 that was the 'world's thinnest'. That might have been just a stamped-on Iphone, however.
Who knows what really goes on behind those closed doors. µ
So that's why she's smiling…
