Microsoft says it's going to offer us seamless synch of all our devices - through MESH
This is the first I've heard of it (which merely shows I know very, very little about this kind of thing), but... doesn't a lot of that already exist?
I can synch my phone, PDA, MP3 player, etc., with contact data, media files and other information... I'm assuming Mesh must be a better or different or more extensive way of doing that...? (Or have I missed the point of it entirely - quite possible?).
Is it a good idea? Bad...?
You can watch the tour Microsoft's site.
It looks interesting - but does it do anything really new?
Looking at that site, yes, it's all good, but there's really little there that I can't already do, with a combination of current software and something like google groups? (And I'm certainly *not* the most technical of people - if I can do it, almost anyone can!).
Watch the tour/movie on the site... it's informative.
..sure it's possible to do all of this with various other pieces of software, this will just make it easier, much easier.
I did.... and though it's shiny, it doesn't look much better than what we have now...
i won't be using it, i only use microsoft for msn and thats enough for me
No worse than trusting Google with your data.
..and Google tracks a hell of a lot about you.
They don't claim otherwise, though.
