Well while Google was working hard to take over our lives, our data, our search and our shopping baskets, it appears that Micrsoft has not been sleeping.
Checking over my site referrer data to see what was new I came acrossLive.com and a quick look had me interested, the search is pretty much the MSN search, but it’s the Google like tool set in the Microsoft Windows Live Ideas section that is really interesting, a full set of new tools from MS covering a wide range of topics from a new tool bar to Office integration, Q&A to mail systems and more.
What is Windows Live?Your online world gets better when everything works simply and effortlessly together. That’s the basic idea behind Windows Live™. So the things you care about—your friends, the latest information, your e-mails, powerful search, your PC files, everything—come together in one place. This is a brand new Internet experience designed to put you in control. And this is just the beginning—you’ll see many more new services in the coming months.
A lot to plough through and see what it’s all about, but for sure this is a whole new move by MS to slow down Google’s desire to own our hearts, minds and hard disks!
