    It's either one or the other with the case in iOS.

    Personally, I prefer Bing search over Google, but they both seem to have their pros and cons.
     iPad Air 2 - iOS 9.3
     iPhone 6 64GB - iOS 9.3
     Mac mini early 2009 - OS X El Capitan 10.11.4
     MacBook unibody/white late 2009 - OS X El Capitan 10.11.4

    Well, most people don't know what they are missing out on. So Bing it on!

    Bing It On - Take the Bing versus Google Challenge. Would you bet against Bing?

    Besides, you can get redeemable rewards for using it. I use Bing all the time and I don't even know the difference.

    I just did a search for a story about me as a kid in my old band and Bing found more URL's about it than Google has ever found.
