What Time Is It In Bangladesh? Google & Yahoo Disagree With Bing & Ask

Jan 8, 2010 • 8:04 am | comments (6) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Other Search Engines

When you ask someone what time is it, you normally don't have to second guess them. But when it comes to asking Google, Yahoo, Bing or Ask.com what time is it, you have to second guess them.

If you search [bangladesh time] at the four search engines, you will have Google and Yahoo telling you one time, while Bing.com and Ask.com telling you a different time. Who do you believe?

Google & Yahoo:

Google: Time in Bangladesh

Yahoo: Time in Bangladesh

Bing & Ask.com:

Bing: Time in Bangladesh

Ask: Time in Bangladesh

So who is right?

Ask. :P I've pretty much always accepted that Ask gets info right. But I'm biased. Guess you'd have to know which are running from your clock vs the server.

Huh! I thought google would have the right answer. Bing actually has the right answer. Bangladesh government adjusted the clock back by an hour on December 31st of 2009. Kudos to Bing for getting it right :) Google better keep up.

Trust Google maps, not Google search. Of course Ask is correct, they are a direct Q&A site.

Bing and Ask are correct. Bangladesh (finally) ended its DST on 11:59pm December 31, 2009. Since the country is GMT+6, the time shown by Ask and Bing is correct. Google and Yahoo! are yet to update their information, apparently.
