    MSN Fade Out?


    I read offline newspaper says that Microsoft will launch a new service at live.com combining hotmail, search, and other information, instant messenger and service.

    Due to this development, MSN will fade out. So, is this the end of MSN? or MSN will be integrated into live.com?

    I am really impressed! MS has invented the portal!

    Wait a minute...

    They already had that. And start looks a lot like G's portal.

    What's the point? I think I'm missing something...

    Live.com is supposed to take MS office functions and put them online. MS just realized that a lot of functions that their desktop windows application does are now being "attacked" by google's new applications. So in an effort to level the playing field, they are making office available online for small businesses, at least some functions.

    I personally think this is too little too late. Google's desktop has really taken a chunk out of MSN's desktop platforms.

    Although, I must say that START.com looks really cool! It looks like an RSS Reader, nothing new here, but the way it's presented is really sweet!

    With the kind of tallent that they been hiring lately, and with the money they have at their disposal, I think Google is going to be surprising us even more in the future.

    MSN is definitely falling short. I mean, where in the world is LongHorn or vista or whatever? And why haven't they released a new browser in years?

    They are blowing it.
