Microsoft is (A)Live

After playing second fiddle to Google in internet era Microsoft realised its time to pull up the socks and take the competition head on. So taking the charge for the internet assault Microsoft has taken the services of Ray ozzie, force behind the lotus notes, so was born the idea of Microsoft Live services.

Though most of the services are still in beta stage and hence unavailable there is definately lots of excitement built around them. One of the most exciting is the launch of Microsoft Office live where if you have the domain man you can the email accounts with that particular domain name also it provides the option for small business to have their own domain and mail ids free of cost. Giving away free stuff was never Microsoft cup of tea but neverthless they have realised the importance of internet. But to shake up Google will not be easy.

Finally 2005 Leaps away ....

Oh what a year 2005 has been infact had been of natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes also not to sideline the Man which wreaked havoc in the form of terrorist attacks and bombing of Iraq continued and also how can I forget -please pardon my short memory-it saw the high profile breakup of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston ...but as they say life finds a way and one can never diminish the human hope ,which is highly irrepressible and also its optimistic outlook .

As the new year ushers in, we await with abated breath as what might this year unfold. We are pretty aware if joy comes along how far can suffering be. The fear of the unknown shouldn't stop us from reveling in the moment and letting our hair down once a while. We try to pack all our year long arrears of thanfulness, benevolence and forgiving nature into the already inundated festivals what we need here is a proper distribution of the feel good nature all year around. Be good, well I try to be ...

So very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you ....
