Bing Goes Down; No Update from Microsoft Yet
By on August 1st, 2012

At 19:45 IST (07:15 PST), I observed that Bing (, the search engine from Microsoft, had an outage.

I checked @bing on Twitter but there was no update and no acknowledgement of the outage. I’ll update the post as soon as the service is back up, or we have an update from Microsoft.

UPDATE - 07:25 PST:

The service is back up, but no comment from Bing as to what happened.

UPDATE – 07:30 PST:

The outage is erratic. I could definitely search via Bing five minutes before but it’s throwing the screen above again now.
