What is Smart Search again?

Windows 8.1 leverages the search technology behind’s search engine to deliver curated, organized, and visually appealing search results that combine information from wherever it lives. Smart Search pulls together documents, videos, and images from the searcher’s devices and SkyDrive, and combines those with information from the web, if the user chooses to include information from the web in their search results.
