We recently announced the launch of our new Live Search Platform. I was just amazed at the innovations that’s gone into this release.
There are three key areas I’d challenge you to try and not like:
Maps: http://maps.live.com – I was just amazed at the number of features and simplicity that was added. For a long time now we’ve been ahead of Google in terms of mapping but in this release, I think we outdid ourselves.
Mobile version: http://m.live.com – I’ve been using m.live.com on my mobile for the past 4 months at least. And, I’m in love with it. With the latest addition of voice, and enhanced search capabilities it’s nothing short of awesome. Some of the salient features are,
Live.com: http://live.com – Finally, I think we all deserve a second chance! J just give live search a shot, it’s always a matter of YOUR choice – you can easily go back to using yahoo or whatever other search engine you use! ;) but, do try something new!
And since you won’t take my word for it, here’s what Gartner had to say: “It’s clear you guys know how to build innovative technology. You’ve been ahead of Google in maps for awhile and now it looks like you’ve passed them in other areas.” -- Gartner analyst, Van Baker
We are Microsoft, we are not used to being #2 – We will continue our pursuit to offer our customers a better experience.
