My Meal Reveals Microsoft’s mis-Fortune.

The fortune cookie from another tasty meal at my local Chinese restaurant might reveal why Microsoft’s Bing search engine isn’t popular in China:

"bing" means "disease" in Chinese!

Perhaps Microsoft should tell China Bing is named after a crooner, cherries, a “Friend“, or curmudgeonly author

(BTW: My lotto luck with fortune cookie fortunes remains intact)

Thanks for reading!
