And Bringing Up The Rear…

Live Mesh, announced today, is Microsoft’s version of the strategy I described in yesteraday’s post. I’ll reserve judgement until I’ve had a chance to read more, but from what I’ve seen thus far, it’s likely that MS will not be great at the one thing that they’ll need to do to make this work: Make it simple and transparent…

“Live Mesh embraces the industry trend toward “cloud computing” in which information is centrally stored on Web sites rather than on local devices, giving users easy access from any computer.”

“The software will also let friends and colleagues collaborate and share documents more easily. For example, if a shared document is changed on a work computer, those changes will be instantly updated and available on any device or computer that the user has registered with Live Mesh.”
