Microsoft has extended its deal with HP to make Bing the default search engine on HP PCs worldwide.

Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer announced at CES on Wednesday that the agreement will also make Microsoft's MSN site the default homepage on HP PCs.

Previously, the partnership only covered consumer PCs sold in the US and Canada, and was effective for 12 months. The extended deal will now cover both business and consumer PCs worldwide, and will span three years.
