Sharing webpages (Like) Toggling (Dislike)!

A sponsored hip + urban girl post.

It's always been the same old two step whenever I'm sending out a dinner party invitation to friends... email the details, menu, address - then open new browser tab, get the map link with the directions, toggle back to email view, copy and paste. Oops, link didn't copy so toggle back to the other window and repeat. Sigh.

The same thing applies when I find a really cool website, photo or video that I want to share or when I'm planning a movie date... so why can't sharing info be as easy as sending over an attachment?! It is now.
Check out Hotmail's latest feature for hip + urban girls who don't like to toggle and refuse to take the fun out of planning. Now you can use Bing to search the web and add results directly to your email without having to leave the Windows Live Hotmail view.
To add Bing results to an email message:
  1. In the Insert bar at the top of a message, click From Bing.
  2. Select from the drop-down list and the Quick Add pane will appear to the right.
  3. Type what you want to find in the search box.
  4. Browse the options in your search results, then click Insert to automatically add the information to your message.
