Hi all,

Wow...$5.5 Billion, that's a lot of lettuce!

Please see link.

Funny true story about MS & Bing....When firms launch a worldwide product they're supposed to make sure that the name doesn't mean something in a foreign langage...That's how George Eastman picked the name Kodak....

Now back to MS: They never fully vetted the name BING...in one dialect in China it means "you make me sick" and in another dialect "I feel sick"....

When every I use Bing, (not too often I usually use Yahoo & Google), all I keep thinking is it's time to use the "You make me sick search engine"...

LOL & True story!
Take care,

Jay
