bing search updateEarlier this morning, we talked about how Bing has predicted that Scotland will remain as part of the U.K. after the referendum is over. Well, while you are waiting for the results to be announced, perhaps you might want to make use of Bing and look up some photos and images of William Wallace and Scottish castles.

All of those information has been consolidated to make the search experience an easier one.

editket keep calm 640x236Copy-editing if often associated with professional and expensive services that only businesses can afford. It is mostly the case, but Ediket’s team believes that there should be something between “no copy-editing” and expensive copy-editing. They also believe in a better interface for both copywriters and customers, which is why they build a nice interface that tries to mimic what users would do on paper.
