microsoft gets into blogging
Continuing its grand tradition of waiting till everyone else has done it first before following suit, microsoft has announced the launch of its own blogging tool. MSN Spaces will allow anyone with a Hotmail or MSN Messenger account to set up a blog for free. The service, currently in test phase, will be supported by banner ads, and users will be able to choose their blog design and upload images and files. The company’s got a bit of catching up to do, with the likes of Blogger from Google and AOL’s journal service already available, not to mention the countless other software services such as Typepad, Upsaid and Live Journal.
