Bing looks to compete with Google's Knowledge Graph, adds people and places to Bing Snapshot sidebar

Bing adds people and places to its sidebar, makes a shameless copy of Google's Knowledge Graph

Yes, we're sure that that is Bing in the image. The sidebar aims to fill the need for quick information and helps keep users on Bing's site for longer, an important aspect for advertising revenue. Which of the two services is better? I guess we'll just have to wait for Microsoft to run another one of its blind taste-tests!
