I tried it, and Bing won't suggest anything but "amazing". I would expect nothing less from Microsoft. :rolleyes:

I think the photo is fake and I don't think the OP really tried it.

EDIT: I was wrong.

Hilarious!

I get "is ugly", "is terrible", "is going to fail", "issues", "is watching you", "is crap", "is doomed", and finally "is awesome".

I fully expect results will change over time, because auto-suggest is adaptive.

You forgot "the" in front of your query. If you type it exactly, it still shows up as "amazing" only. This screen taken 6/18/2013 21:20
You're right. My apologies, I forgot the 'the'. Interestingly enough I tired it again with the 'the' and no suggestions came up. Looks like Microsoft have taken action.

Very manipulative of them if the suggestion was deliberately entered.

Heh, that's funny.

I wonder if everyone here just entered alternate searches ("the Xbox one is a lemon popsicle") enough times and see if it ever appears in the suggestions popup. My guess is: no.

I also tried substituting "PS4", and Bing offered no suggestions, while Google suggested several strings related to release dates etc. Certainly, it looks like both sites are manipulating the suggestions.
