Bing or 病? - the new search engine by Microsoft

Microsoft is about to launch its search engine bing soon: http://www.bing.com/ComingSoon

I wonder why the first word which comes into my mind is "disease". Probably it has something to do with the Chinese character for disease, "病" which is pronounced "bing".

Of course there are more than one characters with the pronunciation "bing" in Chinese language, but I really wonder what a Chinese native speaker thinks about it.
Whatever, I am sure, "病" will be a great success story in China.

Looks like bing is considered as disease - the search engine is censored in China.
