We all crave for information because it makes us fluent and aware of life and the world in general. It is the content of our communication and driver of socialization. But, with the hyper-tasking and a busy-as-bee life, we look for brief and brisk access to a timely dose of “What’s happenin’ around?” The newly launched Microsoft News Bar is your quick fix.
