Why Google Still Gives Better Search Results Than Microsoft's Bing?

The two screen capture shots above show the results of the search query "sony mp3 players what is AVLS".

I wanted to know what AVLS was. On my wife's Sony MP3 player, the AVLS word blinks on the LCD display whenever I increase the volume above a certain level. I thought this was a Sony feature, so I tried searching first on Bing and then on Google.

And as predicted, the first four results from Google had the answers to my query but I couldnt find a single answer from the first 10 results returned by Bing. Bing displayed everything about Sony but nothing about AVLS.

I guess that explains the quality of brains behind Google's search algorithm as compared to Microsoft's search team.
