Windows Live

In Software on 17 May, 2006 at 3:00 pm

Anyone trying out Windows Live?  I was giving it another try (the previous time my setting was not saved and things were quite messy, but its beta software, what do you expect?) and surprisingly this time round it is quite a satisfying experience.

According to Microsoft, Windows Live or Live.com is about 3 things:

  1. The best place to search on the web
  2. A personalized portal
  3. Get the benefits of Windows and Windows Live services

It is a place where you can host all these cool gadgets like weather forecast, hotmail notification, image search, safety center, word of the day, story of the day and so on.  You can even host your favourite RSS feed on this page.  The best thing is though the RSS feed appear in headline form, if you hover your mouse over the “more” text beside each headline, you will be able to read the full post.  That to me is so cool.
