You suggested that they should have named Bing "10^1000"...

10^0 gives me 1, or 1 with 0 zeroes after it.
10^1 gives me 10, or 1 with 1 zero after it.
10^2 gives me 100, or 1 with 2 zeroes after it.

A google (actually, googol, as named by Milton Sirotta in 1938) is 1 with 100 zeroes after it, therefore 10^100.

(Or were you suggesting that it's that much better than Google?)
