    Hi there,

    Is the "classic" Bing search home page gone since the recent Cortana update? I understand that when i use the bottom right search function it is indeed searching 'bing results' through Bing; however, what i am missing is that homepage. Maybe i'm crazy, am i the only one who liked seeing a new picture everyday with little bits of information.... bing-2.jpg

    Does the bing wallpaper still work? I would think it does.

    And if you turn off Cortana, it reverts to the old Bing, so there's that.
    Too bad we have to choose.

    When you want to see the homepage, turn off GPS from the action centre. And when you're done, turn it back on.

    Okay, i put location services in my action center, that way i can quickly turn on/off between bing / cortona.

    It is a shame we have to switch between either/or.

    Microsoft - why not just leave cortana integration within it's own tile/app and bing as standard search?

    Agreed, I really liked the pictures on the search page. Often when using my old L900 an interesting one would pop up and I would go to the search page just to read about the picture. It was a nice touch, and it would be great if they could include that functionality with Cortana somehow. (And yes, I still get the photos on my lock screen on my L520 running the dev. preview 8.1.)
