Microsoft to Include Bing Ads In Windows 8.1 and 2 Other Dow Movers to Watch

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT): Current price $34.07

On Tuesday, Microsoft said that it will add its Bing Ads system to the new version of Windows that will be introduced later in 2013. Last week, the company released a preview of Window 8.1, which will offer a feature known as Smart Search, permitting users to run a search in Windows that will search out information on the Web, their device, applications, and a company cloud. The feature forms a part of a broader plan to turn Bing into a software platform, and is meant to facilitate a way to find what users are looking for without the need to make separate searches on the Web and in their own equipment and sites.
