I was looking at Windows Live beta today and found it looks and operates strikingly similar to Google homepage. More ironically it has a note at the top saying
“Firefox Users: Firefox support is coming soon. Please be patient :-)”
It appears that Microsoft is now ripping off Google. I find this particularily ironic in light of statements Bill Gates made during an interview with Computing Magazine.
â€˜Which Google products are you talking about? Seriously? Other than search, which are you talking about? Google Talk? Wow. A total â€œme tooâ€ product. Even Gmail â€“ what is the unique thing?â€™ he says.
Smooth move Gates… Talk about how Google is ripping you off then promptly release a ripoff of something Google released months ago. I’m not really sure how Gmail is a ripoff of anything MS has made… I mean even on the highest setting the spam filter on hotmail is hardpressed to remove even basic spam… and don’t get me started on all the ads and clutter. Anyways checkout Windows Live then signup for Google homepage. Microsoft needs more competition as it’s rather apparent they’re gettting arogant and lazy in their old age with statements like that.
