MSN Offers New Tools

The MSN Sandbox offers previews of MSN’s current projects and BETA services. The following recent additions to Sandbox may be an indication of just how serious Microsoft is about competing with Google user services.

  • Lookout E-Mail Search : An Outlook integrated desktop search utility.
  • Newsbot : An automated up to the minute news scraper.
  • 3?: A comprehensive user interaction platform, which according to MSN “extends real-world social interactions”.
  • Netscan: A UseNet data mining agent.
  • Terra Server: A vast database of maps and ariel/satelite photography.
Max Speed

If the Pole Position Marketing team had a muse—and it does—it would be Max Speed. We love Max’s occasionally off-color, usually amusing and always pointed “Maxisms.” (Maybe “Maxims” would be a better word.) Max gives voice to some of the things we think but, bound by professional decorum, aren’t permitted to say. At least, not out loud.
