Windows Live Search feature maybe you didn’t know about


lifted from a thread from an internal email discussion, a few things about Windows Live Search that maybe you didn’t know about:

  1. You can do simple or complicated maths such as sqrt(3^2+5^2)math in windows live search
  2. You can ask factual questions which it’ll answer from Encarta, National Geographic, census information, etc.  For example “how tall is mount Everest”, “who is the prime minister of France” or “what is the population of China”. fact questions in windows live search
  3. Currency and other unit conversions like “1 gbp in usd” or “26 miles in km”.currency conversion in windows live search
  4. Word definitions: “define life”. define life with windows live search

neat, and don’t forget the cricket scores from Live search in India
