what’s a Patina?

Following my previous post that covered how to look up the status of a flight on live.com, here’s a couple of other featurette’s that you may not be aware of.

We were watching a programme on TV last night where the word “patina” was mentioned. Any idea what a patina is? Live.com can tell you easily, just type “Define patina” into the search box and you’ll get a definition.



I kind of like the calculator function too. Type “12.4 * 15 / 8” into the search box for example to get the answer 23.25.

Or you can try some formulas, for example try typing “2y + 3y = 8” into the search box and live.com tells you the value of y (1.6 of course).
