No second-guessing

Microsoft calls Bing a decision engine. Why? "That's our goal of not just providing links but helping you solve the key task that you're trying to do," says Program Manager Nathan Buggia.
Does that mean the return of the ****ing Microsoft paperclip?

This attitude is why I disliked MS products for so many years. Just provide what I request, and nothing more, please: I'll deal with the 'key task' myself, thanks.

Not that I'd consider using a search engine which republishes entire Wikipedia entries as 'reference' material, anyway.

Incidentally, is Mr. Buggia an example of nominative determinism?
