MSN's Live is Live
Microsoft, announced that its Live Search is out of its beta testing phase and is now the main search tool at MSN.com. Available in almost 50 markets worldwide, the new search product (which many are debating is providing a serious threat to Yahoo and Google) offers users a personal search homepage, allowing them to use the service to find and track news, images, video, RSS feeds and blogs online. Live Local Search is also out of beta (and available in the UK) and includes street-level imagery, mobile integration and several other user-customization tools. The recent flurry of activity in the search and software space makes for wonderful opportunities for those interested in Web success. We'll keep you updated on how to make the most of Windows Live with a special report from Mike Phillips later this afternoon.
