Hi-tech fruit in the garden of e-den

Posted in Uncategorized by ruthanzo on March 13, 2011

I always thought that Bing, Washington-based Microsoft’s search engine, was named after the cherry varietal because e-fruit have proven to be very juicy and the Apple was already taken. But lately I read somewhere that crooner Bing Crosby was born in the State of Washington and that sorta fits in with Paul Allen’s obsession with Jimi Hendrix who was from Seattle. Beau geste/alt? fruits vs baritones?

    Der Bingle used to deliver a newspaper ( remember them?) called the Bingtown Bugle. That’s where his Sainted moniker came from. So much to learn… so little time
