When I Need Information Quick #MSNKnowNow + $25 Microsoft GC Giveaway

Share This:

Thank you to MSN for sponsoring today’s post and giveaway. All opinions expressed are my own.

It never fails, almost every time my husband and I are in the car together, we are always trying to make last minute decisions. Where do we want to eat? Are there any new restaurants in town? What time does Sam’s close? Do we have time to take the kids to the park before it rains? How do we get to that new store?


Then, every time, my husband says, “Hurry, get out your phone, I need to know before the light turns green” or “before the next intersection.” That’s when the frustration starts as he’s continuously asking me what I found out and all I can tell him is “It’s loading.” Next thing we know, we pass the intersection and the page with the answer loads, “We need to turn… back there.”

This kind of thing has happened to us countless times. I am always stuck trying to get information quick and my trusty phone browser is put on the spot and lets me down.  I am now going to try something new, something that I haven’t given a shot before: MSN and Bing.

MSN has re-vamped their site and re-optimized it to perform better on touch devices. Speed was a key factor and they can now bring information up to 4 times faster than other top sites. I have searched around the site here and there, and I can definitely tell it is faster. I can handle that! Maybe next time, we won’t pass the turn up.
