At State of Search we have decided to take a closer look at the differences between Bing and Google when it comes to current events. Yesterday we explored the differences on reporting the death of Osama Bin Laden and last week we looked at the Royal Wedding. One thing we didn’t really take into account is other services that both Google and Bing explore, like the special YouTube-channel Google had set up.

Microsoft (Bing’s boss so to speak) now releases something around the Royal Wedding using their service Photosynth, of which I am personally a big fan. The service, which also is used in Bing Maps for example, has gathered photo’s from the Royal Wedding and has placed them in a very nice interactive Photosynth set. The images were taken by the Press Association and putten together using Photosynth. OK, it is not search, but it is very nice to see and use.

The first one lets us look inside the Abbey

The second one shows us the Palace and the balcony scene.

Nice job, you found it!

Now, go try out the 12th one:

Use Google Translate to bypass a paywall...

Ran into a page you can't read because it is blocked or paywalled? Here's a quick trick (doesn't always work, but often does!):

Type the page into Google translate (replace the example with the page you want):

http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&u=http://example.com/

How about that!?
