Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

December 2, 2013 at 6:00 AM

Who did Americans search for most on Bing in 2013?

Not Miley Cyrus.

Though the twerking singer was Bing’s most-searched celeb in Australia and Canada, she was beaten out in the U.S. by Beyonce and only managed to come in ninth on the U.S. list.

Interestingly, former Microsoft exec turned Googler turned tell-all author turned venture capitalist Kai-Fu Lee made one of Bing’s lists, ranking as the eighth most searched celeb in China.

Lee, who helped develop Microsoft’s  MSN Internet search technology, left the company in 2005 to run Google’s operations in China, prompting a lawsuit from Microsoft, which contended Lee’s job would violate a noncompete agreement. Google countersued and the companies later reached a settlement.
