Aussies Play Bing Card at issue With Google

Microsoft is about to step in with its Bing program should Google observe on its promise to chop service to Australia, the country's prime minister revealed Monday.

Speaking at the National Press Club of Australia, PM Scott Morrison said he has spoken to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who is confident Bing could meet the requirements of Australians should Google exit, the Associated Press reported.

Google pledged to chop off service to Australia at a public hearing last month over a proposed law to form technology firms buy news content produced by the country's media companies.

Morrison maintained that it's important for Australia to line rules that are right for its people. Having a news environment in Australia that's sustainable and supported commercially is significant to the functioning of democracy, he added.
