This has been in the wings for a while now so it’s good to see it being rolled out. The Live Search homepage (www.live.com) now has a rather pleasing background image – that will be changed over time – with a series of hotspots that you can roll over to explore search information related to the image.
While it’s currently only being rolled out in the US, you can get to see and use it via this link: http://www.live.com/?mkt=en-us (which just changes your location to US on the search page).
It will be interesting to see how this develops, it’s a nice concept.
