If a new blog post at TechCrunch is true (and that's generally about a 50/50 chance), then Bing has struck yet another search deal - this time with Wolfram Alpha. According to the rumor, Bing would make use of Wolfram Alpha to incorporate structured data to its search offering.
Hmm, who else is going after structured data? Oh right, Google with its oh-so-flawed Google Squared.
While I'm sure all the geeks at Microsoft could have coded up a worthy structured data feature, it's smarter, easier and quite possibly faster just to partner up with Wolfram Alpha.
However, Microsoft would not confirm the rumor. So stay tuned!
