Microsoft News

Can’t view my website atm, so emailing this entry in (update: fixed the layout).

Microsoft is making a few announcements this week – Scoble‘s been dropping hints for ages now – and it’ll be interesting to see what’s coming. A couple of early titbits:

Just downloading the new Microsoft Max which is a photo sharing application built to show off MS’s upcoming features. It’s downloading the WinFX Framework Beta, so is clearly pretty cutting-edge! Update: It may have downloaded it, but the install never finishes for me…Shall give it another try later.

Also check out Microsoft Gadgets which launched today. It looks a lot like the MacOSX widgets, or Konfabulator, but should be pretty cool if they implement it well.
