Yup I noticed... I also noticed that Google remove search results it doesn't like.

Bing is getting more and more interesting.

Especially political and social related things. Google is pretty much the king of censorship.

i7 3770k @ 1.28v 4.4GHz | 4x8GB CAS9 1600MHz | GTX 760 | ASUS P8Z77-V LE | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Legacy:

pc -> preamp -> splitter -> my 'crossover' (equalizer set to +12db on 35-200hz, twice since its a stereo one and im using it as mono), my amp

'crossover' -> amp (cheapo ebay board) -> subwoofer

Equalizer: Pioneer SG-60

eBay amp: Generic 100w with terrible traits 

 

PC -> 3.5mm to RCA -> L = Speaker Set3, R = Pre Amp -> Amp -> Speaker Set1/2

Speaker Set3 = Subwoofer (Altec Lansing VS4121 subwoofer, the amp is using the built in amp with that sub)

Speaker Set1 = 'Tweeters' (2x Panasonic SB-FS900 Surround Speakers)

Speaker Set2 = 'Mid Ranged' (Center speaker from Panasonic SB-FS900, Generic 'JS Hi-Fi Speakers'

Total: 1 subwoofer, 2 midranged, 2 tweeters

Pre Amp: Onkyo P-308

Amp: Onkyo M-508

Speaker Set2 is set to -5db using my Amp, quieter because I don't like my mids to be as loud as my highs/lows

 no more 'no buzz', it's hearable with the subwoofer. 

 

 

 

 

138 is a good number.

You expected a easter egg? No.

Yeah I lost the view image button, if I wanna see the source I just usually right click on it but frankly I've been switching my search engine from Google to Duckduckgo and so far I've found it to be generally better.

A bit off topic but about duckduckgo the only thing I think it could do better is when you ask for stuff like this

I mean it does alright, there was one example I forgot which one it was exactly but I would get that image of the map and info about it on Google but it wouldn't show up on duckduckgo.

However I will never say "Bing it". Sounds terrible.

 

"Duckduckgo it"?

Right click>view image? I was doing this prior to this update to get the full size image and it still works just fine.

Yup, you just have to wait for the image to fully load if you're on a slow connection before doing that though. Otherwise it won't give you the proper link.

Can't I just screenshot the image? Won't have to save it at all. 

You'd be better off just right-clicking and saving it; then there would at least be a chance of getting the original at full res.

Much more annoyingly, they seem to have also removed the "find more sizes of this image" button, forcing you to right click the image, reverse image search, then click the button to see larger sizes of the image.

Yep, people really need to spend a little bit of time comparing search terms in all the engines, because sometimes the results are rather alarming.


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

A friend showed me some a while back and it wasn't just alarming, it was confusing, like, it was obvious that it was not the raw results of the search AI or however it works, they had clearly been tampered with to favour certain (frankly less accurate and less relevant) results.

I would expect differences in the algorithms to return different results, especially given just how much content there is to filter through.  However when using metrics like word count, topic relevance and popularity alongside publication date, all search engines should come close spitting out the same results.  The only thing that should really separate google from bing should be the amount of content cached for searching.  So when you get 3 negative articles about trump on one search engine and 3 positive results on another with everything else being almost identical (or at least legitimate due to search metrics) on the first page is concerning.

It wasn't even a comparison to another search algorithm, it was just the google results alone.  They were weird enough to stand on their own
