    Axe Bing and Xbox? Would be really surprising.

    But the xbox does run windows. So it's part of the phone + tablet + pc + entertainment integration. I have no problems with letting bing go, but I doubt they'll dump the xbox.

    All hearsay with some sense and a lot of speculation.
    To kill Bing would be farfetched but definitely office for android makes sense.

    Don't know about xbox (I do know that ps3's the king in games, and more people expect ps4 than xbox 720) About bing it was just crap, try searching using the same words on both bing and google :D

    It doesn't really matter what they nuke or not as if they continue going the road they choose with Windows 8+, they'll be nuked alogether. A few years and M$ may be history.

    Oh no!, no more bing wallpapers?

    Never used the search function, but I must confess that I will miss the amazing wallpapers.

    Is there someone else using anything other than duckduckgo?

    How does it will affect duckduckgo, as it uses bing results in its searches?

    You guys misread about the xbox. They were considering selling it, not killing it.
    The top line of the article is misleading.
    A quote further down tells the real story: "On Xbox, Elop is reported to be willing to sell the gaming console."
