Internet Research:

3: Search engines: Bing, Google, Yahoo

    

1)      Internet service providers search:  I found Yahoo more useful because no ads and it lists the providers in your area first.

    

2)      Google corporate headquarters search:  I thought Bing was more useful because it gave you their official website and address first along with other interesting info on the side.

    

3)      Flights from Boston to Los Angeles search:  Yahoo was better, it had not ads and listed cheap flights first.

    

4)      Identity theft search:  I found Yahoo more useful because it did not have company ads listed first and better yet it listed government sites and info first.
