    You know, of all the online "Live" services that Microsoft has, I think the mapping service has been one of best. However, hardly no one knows about it!

    Yesterday, a new Windows Live release arrived: Windows Live Writer. When I first heard about Writer internally a few weeks ago, my first thought was, "Oh wow!
