Who’s afraid of bing?

According to New York Post bing is getting on Google’s nerves:

[…]co-founder Sergey Brin is so rattled by the launch of Microsoft's rival search engine that he has assembled a team of top engineers to work on urgent upgrades to his Web service, The Post has learned.

Ok, bing won’t knock Google down, but according to the same post the predominant features that dictate how people search the Internet are ease of use and force of habit. It seems like:

Google has been so dominant for so long that it will be tough for anyone to take significant market share away from them.

Doesn’t this remind us of another company?

PS: the announced 11% market share is probably way more than bing has right now. And let’s see how it goes from here, will the trend continue uphill or will it fall to the usual 5% after this very aggressive ad campaign?
