Microsoft begins rolling out MSN.com website revamp
Microsoft is now in the process of rolling out its previously announced revamp of its popular MSN.com website after it allowed 10 million of its 425 million readers to preview the site and offer their feedback.over the past few weeks.
The new design is being launched at the same time as the branding of the previous Bing apps for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 to MSN. Microsoft will also launch new MSN apps for iOS and Android in the near future. What is your opinion on the new MSN.com?

Microsoft is certainly building product synergy and brand awareness. Great start!
By the way, the original MSN app was a web wrapper, and is no longer available in the Store. Pinning the MSN.com site to the Start screen gives a nice Live Tile.
that's how to spell Cortana.
you should ask: how to pronounce Cortana?, and the answer is core-ta (in tada)-nah.
Next step will be Cortana with "powered by Bing" in small print before completely disappearing from public eye.
Then it will be just "Ask Cortana" you will say to people instead of "google it!" Its happening!!!
It's awesomeness doubled in a matter of seconds. It does take longer to load though
For me Cortana is a virtual assistant and intelligent service that will use combination of MSN for general web content, Bing to power it's search capabilities and monitors relevant user activity on the web and within Microsoft ecosystem, and to integrate itself on Windows platforms and maybe future support to other platorm, IoT and services/third-party apps.
This would perfectly align to "Mobile First, Cloud First" initiative of Satya Nadella.
After updating, all the bing apps' live tiles seem to stop working plus they are all labelled MSN instead of e.g. News, Weather
Why double down on a stupid portal?? I don't need Microsoft to offer me up celebrity news and stock charts. When I open Firefox, I'll go to CNN or The NY Times, thanks.
