Windows Live pictorially

TechCrunch tells us more about the Live announcement

Heh, I am sending this post via Outlook this time. I did a quick write up of Windows Live a moment ago and Blogger crapped itself. Isn't it funny that when you start talking about Microsoft and Web 2.0 it breaks the Google service Blogger. lol
On a more serious note it is something this industry is going to have to address at some stage. How to you recover from a wipe out like that where the browser and the web server don't play nice? I need to have confidence in Web 2.0 in order to adopt it. If the page breaks and my data is lost I'm going back to my highly workable, configurable and disconnect-able (Americanism alert!) Outlook 2003 solution.

Microsoft's new plan Office and Windows Live

This is the next bet for the company. It started with the Web in 1995 then .NET in 2000 now in 2005 we have online services that bring everything together.

Your online world gets better when everything works simply and effortlessly together. That's the basic idea behind Windows Live. So all the things you care about online - your friends, the latest information, your e-mails, powerful search, everything – comes 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 products in the coming months.
