Microsoft produces emotional video promo for Bing
In order to thank those who worked tirelessly on Bing over the years, Microsoft produced a three minute video to celebrate the search engine's birthday. But the Bing staff liked the video so much that they wanted Microsoft to share it, and the company complied. The three minute video starts with a young wife texting her dad with the news that her husband has been deployed overseas for 12 months.

But there is good news to share in the form of a positive pregnancy test. "I never thought I'd be doing this alone," texts the wife. Of course, her dad isn't going to let that happen. So he quickly books a train (using Bing, of course) and while en route to his daughter's house, he uses Cortana to check out baby cribs.

As time goes by, dad (either a great handyman or cheap as hell) decides to build the crib himself and that gives us an opportunity to see a Surface tablet sitting on a table, capturing every moment as it is propped up on its kickstand. We also get to see the distinctive looking Nokia Lumia 1020, spitting out directions to a doctor's office.

Finally, the baby is born. It's a girl and the new mother decides to honor her deceased mother by naming her new born daughter Cortana after her. That causes dad to shed a tear, and might put one in your eye as well. And Microsoft is elated because it looks like another Windows user is born into this family of Windows users.
