Now that the conference is over, some hands on videos have cropped up to demonstrate the UI of Tizen 2.2.1 on the Z. So how does it really look like? Hint: it’s not that far off from Android.

One of the few things that were shown but not focused on at the Apple WWDC keynote was that for the new and improved Spotlight in Mac OS X Yosemite, it would be powered by Microsoft’s Bing. On top of that, searches on iOS 8 would also be sans Google Search by default. In a statement, Microsoft has come out and said:
“Last year Bing became the default web search for Siri, and will now also be the default web search provider in the redesigned Spotlight search feature for the next generation of iOS and OS X. We’re excited about extending the Bing platform to help iOS and Mac customers find what they need to get things done.”
Will this affect you, Apple users? Or as long as you get your results, you don’t care who gets them to you?
