Screen Shot: New Live Search Entertainment AnswersMicrosoft is starting to roll out the fall update to its Live Search engine. Over the next few weeks, users will begin to see more relevant and comprehensive results, according to Microsoft.
Here is a shot of how Microsoft will present entertainment-search results to users of the new Live Search. Entertainment is one of four verticals upon which Microsoft focused with the new release. Microsoft has expanded the "Rich Answers" it provides in these verticals (entertainment, shopping, health, local/maps) and integrated content specific to these four areas more deeply into Live Search, company officials say.
