Bing CortanaBing announced several updates to their Cortana engine (i.e. Microsoft's answer to Apple Siri and Google Now).

The updates include evening data, location aware cards for concerts in your area and apps based on your location, as well as flights.

So instead of just showing your schedule for the day, before the evening, Bing Cortana will show you your busy evening's schedule. Cortana will show you travel time to home and upcoming items on your calendar so you’re sure to be on time for that dinner date or know to go to bed early for that 7 a.m. meeting.

Cortana now infers artists that you might like and notifies you when they are playing in your area.

It now also shows you the best apps in your location, such as when you are at Disney:
