Where do you look

...okay, it's been almost a year and a half since Microsoft rolled out Bing and told us that it was better than Google because they were calling it a "decision engine."

I've used it, read a bit about it, and I still don't see significant difference, and certainly very little of significant value to me out here.

What I do see is that it's much better for Microsoft (and notably, its advertisers) if I search at Bing.  Good for you guys!

Can anyone tell me an actual practical benefit that I might see as a user of Bing rather than as a user of Google for searches? (I've read the Wikipedia and the Microsoft agit-prop on the matter. I'm looking for something that I can tell my grandmother about it -- something that benefits us!)
