The two major search engines, Google and Microsoft Bing (does Yahoo count anymore?) outdid themselves on Halloween this year.

Google’s 2011 Halloween Doodle was a fun time-lapse video of the Google Doodle team and friends carving a bunch of gigantic pumpkins — in the form of the company’s logo, of course.

Microsoft Bing’s picture of the day was a dark and striking time-lapse — a series of photographs from Getty Images showing a lightning storm flashing across a menacing gargoyle.

So whose was better?

    Can’t read the Google pumpkins. Bad font choice I guess.

    I think it’s pretty obvious who is the winner and who is the loser.

    Thank you, Steve.

    I thought the Google time-lapse thing was really charming and totally captured the fun of Halloween! It contained fun layers and levels of detail. I don’t see why it’s so far behind in the polls…

      because it is self-serving and is more about the company/individuals than the season.

    Both are winners. Each one is a cool Halloween image that fits perfectly with the images they are trying to project with their images. Google – fun and topical. Bing – a snapshot of the world.

    I found googles video was more enjoyable this time.  Generally, overall I prefer Bing
