Microsoft announced a broad range of new functionality for Bing, its search engine, on Nov. 11. In addition to incorporating results from Wolfram Alpha, a self-described computational engine that provides a definitive numerical answer to a search query, the revamped Bing offers a more robust video page, with feeds from MSN Video, Hulu and ABC, and more intensive search in categories such as local events and cities. In a sign of the increased importance of social networking to corporations such as Microsoft and Google, Bing has also incorporated Facebook and Twitter into its search features.
