Bing vs Google for augmented reality and computer vision

I’m using Google a lot for my work, looking for articles, unknown to me definitions and techniques and so on. So I’ve decided to check Microsoft Bing too.
First test – augmented reality
Google – definition in the first line, links give pretty comprehensive coverage for beginner
Bing – four obscure links with job and phd references

Second test – MSER definition
Google – give definition in the first line
Bing – unrelated garbage

Third test – preserving symmetry in cholesky decomposition
Google result
Bing result
Similar results. Both engines relay on the wikipedia heavily

Forth test: “multiscale segmentation”
Google result
Bing result
Surprisingly I like Bing results better.

Conclusion:
Google engine seems have more “common sense” and more useful for introduction into subject. Could be because of bigger indexed base.
Bing could be actually useful in specific searches.

The Greater Augmented Reality

That was in response to excellent Tim post.

I completely agree that “self” becoming progressively more fuzzy concept. For example “Self” concept usually include one’s memories. But what if some of my memories are stored outside of me, and my brain storing only search keys to them ? Yes, I mean google. Google already works as “Augmented Memory”. Ironically I’m developing mobile augmented reality apps, using google as augmented reality memory in weirdly recursive loop…
