Windows Live: Google inadvertently sparks innovation at Microsoft

Google’s indirect threats to Microsoft’s software monopoly are causing sparks of innovation to fly once again at the Microsoft camp, and about time too! Windows Live currently offers three online tools, Live.com, Live Mail and Live Messenger, which are currently in beta stages. Live Messenger looks to be an extension on the already released MSN Messenger, while Live Mail seems to be a direct competitor to Gmail. Live.com offers users the ability to have their own customized homepage feeding information such as local weather, news, search and one click email access all in a clean, fast interface. Let?s hope this is just the start, as Microsoft has been playing it safe for years now. The talent (though Google has stolen most of it) at Microsoft is world class, so it would be nice to see them use it for once with innovative and useful products.
