Autocomplete can be a convenient way to let a search engine finish your thought. Or in Microsoft’s case, autocomplete can be an attempt at brainwashing or an attempt to hide what a lot of people are thinking.

For example, typing in “The Xbox One is” on Bing causes the Microsoft-based search engine to suggest one and precisely one suggestion: “The XBox One is amazing.”

Meanwhile, typing in “The XBox One is” on Google results in “The XBox One is terrible.” Or “ugly.” Or “a joke.” You have to give credit to Google for offering more than one choice.

One has to question why Microsoft feels so insecure about the search results about their XBox One to the point that they have to filter them on their own search engine.

Another question to ask is who the heck is actually using Bing?
