    Somehow I really doubt this will concern anyone at Google, until it develops into a trend over several months it's rather easily dismissed as statistical variation and short term effects. It would also need to come from more than one net analysis firm...

    The big G is the go to place for search in 'the West' and will be hard to dislodge, it's one of those rare dominances that results in the company name becoming a verb in common parlance. People don't say "I will bing! it".

    They did everything they could to make 'Bing!' a verb - even getting American TV series to have actors hold mobile phones and 'Bing!' their searches.

    The only impact worth noting for its success however was the obfuscation of changing search providers in Internet Explorer, and making 'Bing' the default (and in some cases only) search for their Mobile phones, XBox 360, and Surface bollocks.

    It will trend and take some market share, but the best way (the only way) to make this work is to build a better search engine than Google. I.e. it's "never gonna happen!"

    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
