Bing was a big factor on Wednesday at the Microsoft Microsoft Build Conference. For starters, CEO Steve Ballmer announced that Windows 8.1 Preview now is available for developers and users, and, as Microsoft disclosed about a month ago, Bing’s bringing a new way to search to Windows 8.1-powered devices.
It’s been a busy month for Bing, which earlier in June was picked by Apple to bring web search integration to its intelligent personal assistant Siri on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices. Come iOS7, it will automatically deliver the specific answer or web search links to Siri searchers.
But back to Windows.
