    Bing apps will become MSN apps next week


    Microsoft is busy doing some in-house rebranding of some of its most popular apps. In fact all Bing apps, will become MSN apps next week.

    This comes as an effort from Microsoft to try and consolidate their brands. MSN was always aimed at media consumers but it was somewhat abandoned in the last couple years.

    I just hope that isn't just a rebranding update, but an update who provides new features and a new UI. Then it will be worth all the buzz about it!

    MSN? Hate it. Bing? Hate it even more. Both of them can go die in a hole for all I care.

Solved Can't view installed Bing Apps in Software and Apps
My upgrade from 7 Pro to 8 Pro was smooth. I tried to use location on the Bing weather app and it was over 100 miles out. Couldn't figure out how to solve this so uninstalled it. Then I did something obviously stupid, I did a restore. I thought that by 'all apps' WIndows 8 did not mean...
