SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Microsoft's disdain for Google doesn't extend to all of its rival's products.
Justin Ishley's insight:
In a rare bit of cooperation, Microsoft's Outlook.com is giving users of its free email service the option of logging into Google Chat to exchange instant messages and engage in audio or video conversations.
The tie-in announced Tuesday represents an uneasy alliance in the midst of a typically contentious relationship between Microsoft Corp. and Google Inc.
Microsoft is framing its embrace of Google Chat as an example of how it's trying to help connect people who rely on various services to interact with one another. Both Outlook.com and Google Chat are offered for free as way for Microsoft and Google to attract more online traffic to its advertising-supported services.
It's hard to believe now, but at one time — 1996, in fact — Hotmail was the best email available on the web. Microsoftacquired the former "HoTMaiL" in 1997 for $400 million, back in the day when looking at your email on the web, as opposed to a dedicated desktop client, was still a wild new idea.
Hotmail quickly dominated web-based email. It's still hugely popular, with roughly 360 million monthly users. Google's Gmail has only just overtaken it in popularity.
Of course, that's all history.
When Google launched Gmail in 2004, Google offered more storage, larger attachment sizes and a search function that allowed you to look through your email without, you know, actually looking through it.
In the same period, Hotmail became a living example of the way the web can quickly create and then destroy hugely popular products: Microsoft took it through several rebrandings: as Microsoft Hotmail, Windows Live Hotmail, MSN Hotmail, and now Outlook.com. (Even though web users keep their Hotmail.com addresses.)
The new Hotmail, under Microsoft's Outlook redesign, is actually fantastic. It's super-fast, and super-easy to use. Aside from one key flaw, it makes Gmail feel out of date.
