Bing gets a new logo and modern design to take on Google
Microsoft’s Bing search engine is getting a new look. A year in the making, Bing is dropping its curly blue logo for a modern design that closely matches the rest of Microsoft’s recently redesigned product branding. “The logo, obviously, is a big deal for us, a lot more angular and fresh and sharper than we’ve used in the past,” explains Microsoft’s Lawrence Ripsher, a design lead for Bing’s User Experiences, in an interview with The Verge. After “literally dozens” of color experiments, Microsoft has selected an orange Bing logo that’s almost golden in its appearance.

Netflix Uses Piracy Data to Select Its Programs
Netflix chooses its programming based on what shows and movies are popular on piracy sites, Netflix’s Vice President of Content Acquisition, Kelly Merryman, told Tweakers. Netflix looks at what people are downloading and then buys the rights to the titles in highest demand.
According to TorrentFreak, Netflix CEO, Reed Hastings, suggests that offering people what they want will sway them to use Netflix instead of BitTorrent as their source of entertainment. The idea may not be far-fetched, since BitTorrent traffic in Canada dropped 50% after Netflix appeared three years ago.

“Netflix is so much easier than torrenting. You don’t have to deal with files, you don’t have to download them and move them around. You just click and watch,” Hastings says.
