Underlying sentiment in Google begging Firefox users to switch defaults from Yahoo is realization that Bing powered results good enough. :)@copingbear @gruber @paulg no one beats QuoraGoogle Is Practically Begging Firefox Users To Switch Their Default Search Engine http://t.co/JwrPnjQFvU <= guess they miscalculated impact@AlanHogan VC expectation is 10x returns which is feasible with 2-3 devs writing the next Instagram or Snapchat.

@Mel66 @BingAds this problem is fixed in 10.7. You can get it from https://t.co/Vgk1lxLlMc - Thanks for reporting it.@Jonathan_Ellins that is correct. We will update the misleading UI shortly. Thanks for pointing it out.@Jonathan_Ellins You can get a good background on Unified Device Targeting in Bing Ads at http://t.co/9J1xhe3CIT #ppcchat@Jonathan_Ellins and when mobile is combined it will retain its bid adjustment as tablet has.@Jonathan_Ellins no. You can use a bid modifier for tablet. PC & tablet are combined as a target. Mobile will also be combined next month.@Jonathan_Ellins @Mel66 the bid modifier is for the tablet bid. You can't target PCs separately from tablets.Clearly our UI here can improve@Jonathan_Ellins @Mel66 the bid adjustment is for "tablet bid"@Mel66 @Jonathan_Ellins weird that the article claims we don't have bid adjustments on tablet devices which we've had since last fall 😖@ariobueno1 @BingAds what problems are you seeing?
