Windows Live is On Line

Windows Live - still in beta - is Microsoft's first step to shift all its services to the Web. Analysts said the move was prompted by competition from Google and other rivals.

That said, Microsoft Live is a first step with some new features and among the gadgets one can add is photos from Flickr. I haven't tested the RSS feed reader but since Google recently put out its own Web based reader, it could be fun to watch and compare if I'm in a geek mood over the holidays.
