Google dominates so many services it's not funny, but Microsoft isn't going down without a fight when it comes to search engine wars. The Redmond-based software giant is very much committed to Bing, and it seems like that is a relationship that will keep on keeping on.

Since 2005, Bing has cost Microsoft's Online Services Division a hefty $11 billion, but the company are still continuing to maintain it, and pump money into the search engine. AllThingsD's Kara Swisher says that all of Microsoft's board members, including recently appointed activist shareholder firm ValueAct, think that Bing is a key part of Microsoft's future in online revenues.

 

I guess we'll see going into the future, but Microsoft's recently acquisition of Nokia's Devices and Services division might just have a helping hand in the future of Bing, or vica versa.
