Most of Bing's Tools Are From Live Search

So, Microsoft made some serious press with Bing, their new search engine, going live. The search interface is very different from Live.com and some of the vertical search portals, like video, maps, images have new features, but a lot of the tools remain the same.

For example, people are first noticing that Bing has a Local Business Center. Honestly, the way to get there is to go to https://ssl.search.live.com/listings/BusinessSearch.aspx and it will redirect you to https://ssl.bing.com/listings/BusinessSearch.aspx. If you had a Live Search Maps listing, you have a Bing listing.

Same with Bing's webmaster tools, go to http://webmaster.live.com/ and you will be redirected to http://www.bing.com/webmaster. The features remain the same, for the most part, outside of a new logo at the top left.

Sorry for the little rant about Bing being so new and exciting. It is exciting and new, but much of the press around Bing is calling old features new, when they are not new (i.e. Live411 to Bing411).
