Live Looking Livelier

Late last week, Redmond continued its Live PR push, announcing or at least pre-announcing a heap of new consumer products and services.

Microsoft plans to enhance its Windows Live services with new Redmond-crafted tools along with items built by partners such as LinkedIn and Flickr. Microsoft also continues to pump out developer tools for the cloud and Web services -- so many, in fact, that it's actually hard to keep track. And I keep track for a living!

Microsoft really needs to distill this all into one cohesive, understandable strategy -- a tough thing for a company of programmers to do sometimes.
