September 11th Honored by Bing & Ask.com

SMS Text

This morning, as I watched the live CNN feed of the tribue to those who were lost in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, I sifted through the search engines to see if any of their logos are honoring 9/11. Of the major search engines, Microsoft’s Bing and also Ask.com are showing tasteful memorials to the fallen of the September 11th attacks.

Ask 911

Yesterday at the White House, eight years after the attacks and loss of thousands of lives, President Obama declared September 11th a Patriot Day and National Day of Remembrance and Service. Splendid job of remembrance Bing and Ask.com.

    WHAT??! Google ignored 9/11 on its first official National Day of remembrance? Shame on Google.

    Bing now has a photo of New Zealand…You would think that Bing would leave the tribute page up for the duration of the day. And where is Google? What a fail.

      Nice screen cap from 8 years ago Barry, that’s a piece of history, albeit tragic history.

    WTH is up with Google? Who are they afraid of offending?
    Way to go Ask and Microsoft!

    Nice post Loren.

    It doesn’t surprise me that they didn’t do anything. They totally skipped Easter as well, with Bing covering it. Google just doesn’t care unless it is some stupid holiday or occasion. They are probably trying to be PC to someone who may be offended.

    I just brought up Bing and am still showing the 9/11 remembrance page.
