Hello,

Google: Concise results.
Bing:... well...

I don't get it: The first link tells you the answer.

Yes. But Google's results just jumps out at you in the first result.

This. And the calculator is interactive.

Why use either when there's Wolfram Alpha?

Are you trying to work out if your dealer gave you the correct amount.

I wish I could completely avoid Google Search. Unfortunately the alternative, in the case of Bing, isn't up to par yet.

Not interactive like Google's though.

It's also funny how Bing almost exactly copies Google's layout. The only thing missing is a postscript saying "Inspired by Google" ;)

Google has quite fully featured unit conversion, currency conversion and scientific calculator built in their search term parser (among other things, of which I do not care, however). I've found the unit conversion calculator useful a few times, too.

 

Doesn't make me wonder why Bing doesn't have it - they probably haven't had the time to grow all kinds of bells and whistles around it. In time, they will, too. US version, evidently, already has something along those lines. I'd wish people would stop posting US version screenshots and boasting about it.

Actually, Google has copied various things that appeared on Bing first.

You're really bad at searching... I even used the same poor grammar that you used.
