Of course this is going to be for sales data and profiling. So they can tailor ads to you.

Nothing wrong choosing to use much less actually liking Bing.

But it is mildly disquieting the way MS will likely use its forced application to the 360 user base to bolster Bing's numbers against Google, and are now claiming rights to any information you give it.

i use bing from time to time to add microsoft points. yes they let you redeem searches for points...the fact that i have to open internet explorer to do it is the reason i don't use it all that often...as for implementing it on the 360, i think it's a novel idea cause having through scroll through menu after menu looking for one specific thing tends to get tedious, especially if you have a lot of crap on your hardrive.
