Bing has new travel-minded tools on deck for its U.S., UK, Australian, and Canadian users. The feature set’s goal is to reduce the headaches caused by mapping out travel logistics.
The four flavors of Bing improvements are: It will now suggest an itinerary for your trip (if you want the help), better assist you in booking flights and lodging by finding competitive packages and rates, sport a page insights pane to give you information on potential destinations’ landmarks, and feature more categories in Knowledge Cards to give you info on a wider range of subjects and searches. One example of how Knowledge Cards work is: Say you’re looking up a local delicacy of a place you’re thinking of traveling to. A card may give you the scoop on that food’s nutritional information as well as fun trivia.

These features are all built right into the standard Bing searching experience so you don’t have to go on any elaborate sidequests to get a hold of all that additional information. Whether you’re hunting for the best prices on decent hotels or need help figuring out what the hottest things to do are in a given location, Bing’s upped its game to make all of those search queries as easily answered as possible.
You can read up on the specifics of each feature over at Microsoft’s blog post on the subject, or keep learning about why Bing is a worthy alternative to Google.

Where are all the guns in Dying Light 2?
It’s by design, sure, but there’s a distinct lack of firearms in Dying Light 2. For better or worse, modern medieval Villedor is a place to build your own weapons. But what happened to the guns and ammo and might it ever make a comeback?
