Between a Marketplace outage and Xbox Live services problems, it's been a rough few days for WP7 users.  Unfortunately, here's one more to add to the mix.  Reports have been circulating that business reviews are currently not working in Bing search results.  We ran some tests of our own and found those reports to be accurate.  It is not clear whether the issue is limited to certain devices, OS versions, carriers or geographical locales, like the Marketplace outage.
