This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
Earlier this week we launched Bing, the new decision engine designed to help you make more informed decisions. Today, we’re excited to share that Bing 411 (1-800-BING-411 or 1-800-246-4411), with voice search powered by Tellme, has also arrived! More than simple local business search, Bing 411 makes it easier to get on-the-go information: driving directions, traffic reports, sports scores, stock quotes, weather reports, and even information the cheapest place near you to buy gas.
Bing 411 now takes local business search a step further, helping you to complete tasks from your phone. Call Bing 411 to find a business, then connect to it or get an SMS with a link to a map (which you can also send to a friend). Bing 411 even includes star ratings of businesses based on reviews by other consumers. You can get traffic-influenced driving directions, and for movie theaters, you can get show times and even buy tickets.
Get the right information to make decisions and complete tasks fast, with one easy phone call (1-800-BING-411).

Great work guys. This data will help me when building and growing my site.
This feature is very cool. Just used it to get to my local breakfast burrito place in Houston Texas
That is using technology as it should be used.good Job Guys
