Update: Bing Maps Blog let’s folks know about the contest today.
—- original post 1/22/10——
Microsoft has been “rewarding” those who use its search engine, so why not its mapping product? Apparently if you can answer some simple questions using Bing Maps in the Bing Maps Challenge, you can enter to win a $100 gift certificate. If you get the answers wrong - you are shown “training videos.”
I find it interesting this “offer” was not covered by the Bing Maps blog, but only in the Bing Blog. I guess they figure those reading the Bing Maps blog are already users? And, I guess not many bloggers/news folks read that blog - as I found only the MediaPost article referring the challenge in a search of Google News on Thursday night.
