  • Blog Post: Live Mesh…the story so far

    I seem to spend a lot of time at the moment giving people impromptu demos of Live Mesh. It’s a great way to dip your toe in to cloud computing and experience how “the cloud” can change your computing experience. I came across the What’s inside Live Mesh?   page this week following a tweet from ...
  • Blog Post: Live Mesh update today: Fixes Windows 7 bug

    What I love about the Mesh team is they just deliver. And deliver. I asked last week if they were going to push out an update that fixes the Aero glass issue on Windows 7 (Mesh currently disabled Aero). Today they confirmed the update that will arrive later today fixes this along with a few other things...
  • Blog Post: Live Mesh Awarded A Chocolate Bar?

      For those not familiar with UK confectionary/candy, the Crunchie is a cinder toffee and chocolate combination from Cadbury’s that is remarkably tasty and sticks to your molars like glue. Yum. As you can see above, Ray Ozzie and David Treadwell are not being handed those type of Crunchie’s which...
  • Blog Post: Live Mesh: The Killer App for Netbooks

      This weekend I was reading 7 Tools To Make Your WinXP Netbook Shine on GigaOm and commented there that they missed a trick IMHO by not including Live Mesh . Okay so Live Mesh as a service is still in beta but in my experience it’s rock solid and is a (perhaps THE) killer app for Netbooks. Here...
  • Blog Post: Live Meeting Series: Azure Services Platform Overview

    I meant to post about this on Wednesday when it happened but I had a busy week so never got to it. Thankfully the Live Meeting Series: Azure Services Platform Overview with David Treadwell was recorded and you can grab the Transcript , PowerPoint slides and view the Live Meeting itself. One thing I love...
  • Blog Post: Live Mesh Backgrounds

    Hat tip to Jamie for pointing me to this great new pack of Mesh Backgrounds from Ori Amiga’s blog.
  • Blog Post: Killer Live Mesh Demos at PDC

      I agree with James that Jeremy Mazner’s session at PDC was one of the best – certainly the best I attended outside of the keynotes. I met Jeremy back when he worked on Tahoe (aka SharePoint) and he’s always delivered great sessions with great demo and humour. In this one he showed the potential...

  • Blog Post: David Treadwell Talks Live Mesh

    David Treadwell is one of the quiet guys behind the scenes of Live Mesh amongst other things. We had him talk to some of our executives in a meeting I helped pull together earlier this year and I was seriously impressed by “tread”. He’s been around for 19 years and worked on some pretty impressive projects...
  • Blog Post: Get More Live Mesh at PDC

    I can hardly believe that Live Mesh has been around for months now. I use it every day and find it invaluable but as I’ve said before, what we see today is really just the tip of the Live Mesh iceberg. At the PDC you’ll see and hear about a lot more about its platform capabilities. As the team said on...
  • Blog Post: Will sync kill the memory stick?

    I’m testing Live Mesh on a number of devices right now – both PC and mobile. It got me wondering if an iPhone client is out there in the future as I’m also playing with an iPod Touch courtesy of my recent blog award – thanks Computer Weekly! We have an original iPhone in the household and I spent last...
  • Blog Post: Lighting up Live Mesh

    [image credit – Long Zheng ] Angus did a pretty nice post on the Oz MSDN Flash last week around Live Mesh providing a pretty succinct explanation of what it and and some of what’s to come. Certainly well worth a read and you will see a Windows Mobile device in his device ring image and his post on Live...
  • Blog Post: Getting More Out Of Live Mesh

    I’ve been using Live Mesh a lot since it launched – generally for two things: simple file sharing between PC’s in my house and sharing a few folder on my PC with work colleagues. With a little more time on my hands recently I’ve starting looking at a few additional uses – notably keeping music and photos...

    Today we expanded the reach of the Live Mesh Tech Preview to include Canada, India and Ireland (although you still need to run with an English locale.) This adds to existing availability in the USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand. You may have missed our expansion in to the UK back on July 30th so if...
  • Blog Post: Live Mesh as a cloud platform

    InfoWorld just posted a great entry asking if Live Mesh may emerge as Microsoft 'cloud' platform . At last….I’ve been saying to anyone that will listen that Live Mesh is way more than just the file sync capability you see right now. Of course you have to dig in to Channel 9 and other places to find this...
  • Blog Post: Live Mesh get a refresh

    As many blogs are already discussing, Live Mesh got an update today and the Mac client even made a brief reappearance. Some bug fixed and performance work has gone in but the most significant change for me is unlimited invites – you can now invite all your friends and family to join the Mesh world. To...
  • Blog Post: Apple almost blogging about MobileMe

      [image credit – Engadget ] I just read on Twitter that Apple is blogging – with Steve Jobs apparently asking one of his staff to post daily about the MobileMe debacle .

  • Blog Post: MobileMe has a Mossberg cloud over it

    Oh dear…Uncle Walt sings the death knell for Apple’s MobileMe. It’s a shame as the concept is great but as Apple has found, implementation of cloud services at scale may mean they need to take a few “Geniuses” off the bar and back to the datacentre. Meantime, Live Mesh which is in Tech Preview is pretty...

    The BBC is really getting its geek on this week. Not satisfied with a load of Bill Gates coverage surrounding their Money Programme special, they covered Cloud Computing on Click this week. For those not familiar, Click is the BBC’s technology show that takes geekspeak like mine and makes it real for...
