Cooler than Bing

Two things that are cooler than Microsoft's new search engine:
  1. Google Squared: wow. And I'm not the only one who thinks so [1].
  2. Microsoft's own SketchFlow: a workflow-centric (rather than page-centric) tool for prototyping web sites. With stuff like this going on, why is MS still trying to go head-to-head with Google on G's home turf?
[1] But please, everyone: "exponential" doesn't mean "reall big", so please stop using it that way.
