Over the last week, we've seen a lot of buzz around Bing. More precisely, we're seeing that Google is worried about Bing, and that they Sergey Brin has assembled a group of his finest Googlers to analyze Bing and figure out what makes it tick.

Is Bing really posing that serious of a threat? It's impossible to say right now, but as Chris Matyszczyk puts it, Google may actually want us to think Bing has them worried. The story could have been propagated by Google itself, rather than from a leak.

If that's what has happened, it actually makes a lot of sense. Google could be simply looking to change their appearance to regulators who are taking aim at the company, just waiting for the right time to declare them a monopoly. If Bing can make Google squirm, then is Google really that impenetrable?
