Microsoft Mashes Up Wikipedia and Bing in New Windows 8.1 App

When you are searching the Internet do you want as much information as you can get without having to leave the page? Enter a new App for Windows 8.1 from Microsoft that will pair up its Bing search engine with Wikipedia to give a new perspective to searching.

Microsoft is clearly trying to combine items it uses in its own Bing Snapshot database with Wikipedia in this new app mashup. It certainly offers some features that power Wikipedia users would appreciate.
