Xbox One is terrible on Google, amazing on Bing

Oh, Microsoft!

If you type "The Xbox One is" on Google, autocomplete will helpfully offer suggestions based on what the world is saying about it. Right now those suggestions are less than flattering. "The Xbox One is terrible," reads the first item. It's also "ugly" and "a joke."

Microsoft's proprietary search engine, Bing, would have you believe a different tale. 

Entering the same search into Bing offers up one single suggestion: "The Xbox One is amazing."

To the casual observer, it looks like Microsoft is using its own pointless relic of a search engine to falsify public opinion about a heavily criticized product. Of course, we all know Microsoft would never do anything like that. When Microsoft has an unpopular product it doesn't just shove it down everybody's throat and try to convince them they secretly love it. Oh wait ... 

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
