Bing: Seahawks won’t win the Super Bowl

Microsoft’s Bing search engine put its algorithms to work and released a bleak prediction for the company’s hometown football fans: the Seattle Seahawks won’t repeat as Super Bowl champions.

Bing says they won’t even make the final game. The search enBing Super Bowl predictiongine predicts a New England Patriots win over the Green Bay Packers.

Bing isn’t playing favorites with it’s corporate parent, either.

Its roster of the top trending wearable technology devices of 2015 is led by Apple’s watch, followed by Samsung gear. Microsoft’s own band makes an appearance lower in the leaderboards and, for some reason, is ranked as high as No. 3 in Europe.

Some of the other predictions might surprise.

Three of North America’s top 2015 travel destinations are located in Tennessee (Pigeon Forge, anyone?). Turtlenecks will be among the top fashion trends. And hummus, which has been on the mind of taste-makers in the U.S. for years, will continue to surge in every region of the globe.

Check out the rest of Bing’s thoughts on the year to come on its 2015 predictions page.
