Microsoft continues to confuse the heck out of me. I am always more and more perplexed by the decision of this company to rebrand products create poor interfaces, and launch products a year late. And have Robert Scoble as its unofficial company spokesman, err evangelist. While this post is highly opinionated. The product MSN Spaces is more MySpace and less blogging platform and hopefully that will change with the rebranding. It needs to be more powerful blogging application with simplification if its going to become one of the market leaders if you ask me. Oh Scoble where art thou? If Spaces was so great why are you using WordPress?
MSN INTENDS TO ADD NEW features to its blogging service and change its name from “MSN Spaces” to “Windows Live Spaces” this summer, reflecting the Redmond software giant’s plan to monetize its online offerings under the “Live” flag.
An MSN spokesman said the company will gradually add Windows Live features, rather than relaunch the site. “MSN Spaces will focus on building Windows Live innovations into a ready=for-market product, rather than shipping as a beta in the Ideas site,” the spokesman said. “MSN Spaces will seamlessly transition to Windows Live Spaces as we add new Live features to the service later this summer.”
