Scobleizer / Microsoft Geek Blogger:
Google domains going after Outlook?  MSN did that months ago...  What's funny with this headline that I see over on Memeorandum is that MSN has been doing pretty much the exact same thing for months now (and has not one, but more than 20 colleges/universities signed up according to Adam Sohn, director of PR guy for MSN).
Nick / Rough Type:
My funny valentine  —  Microsoft's kept blogger, Robert Scoble, wonders why some bloggers (like myself) covered yesterday's launch of Google's private-domain Gmail service but ignored the earlier launch of a similar service by Microsoft last November.  It's a good question - personally …

Thou dost protest too much, Robert  —  The Scobleizer is more than a tad upset that everyone is so excited by Google's hosted Gmail project (he calls some of the posts "rewritten press releases") and complains that no one is giving Microsoft any love, despite the fact that its Live domain project …
Paul Kedrosky's Infectious Greed:
Scoble, Your Mind is Calling.  It Wants to Come Home.  —  Robert Scoble — "Microsoft's kept blogger", to use Nick Carr's apt phrase — rages that the reason why Google's Gmail for Domains got a nice mention here yesterday was because I run Adsense ads.  That is, in a word, nuts.
Dare Obasanjo aka Carnage4Life:
Been There, Done That, Now Watcing Google Catch Up  —  A couple of folks at work have been commenting on how the blogosphere has been raving about a couple of recent announcements from Google yet seemed to ignore similar functionality when it showed up in competing products.  Here are three examples from this week.
Michael Arrington / TechCrunch:
Preview of 3Bubbles  —  Silicon Valley based 3Bubbles, which launches next week, is going to be an awesome way for bloggers and other websites to extend the conversation on the things that they write about.  —  They have created a very easy to integrate Ajax based chat interface that can be added to every blog post automatically.

Stowe Boyd / Message:
First Glimpse: 3bubbles  —  It's great to able to finally say something about 3bubbles, a company I have been advising since October last year.  Starting next week they will be rolling out a limited beta of their technology: real-time chat for blogs.  You can sign up here for the open beta, some time in the near future..
Alec / Alec Saunders .LOG:
Guest Posting: The Voice Long Tail  —  My good friend Chris Wood and I have been discussing the long tail concept, as it applies to voice, for several months now.  Chris works for an unnamed traditional telco.  In this short essay he introduces the idea that there are markets for voice conversations everywhere, built around context.
Rich Miller / Netcraft:
Payment Gateway StormPay Battling Sustained DDoS Attack  —  Payment gateway StormPay is recovering from a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS) that has kept its web site offline for much of the past two days.  The company, which provides online payment processing for thousands of e-commerce web sites …
Search site retires iconic Jeeves  —  Jeeves the valet who for a decade has overseen searches on the Ask website is about to be sacked.  —  By the end of February the iconic valet will disappear from the site he has graced since it debuted in 1996.  —  The decision to axe Jeeves was taken …

Scobleizer / Microsoft Geek Blogger:
Northern Voice, enthusiasts in charge  —  I like Northern Voice.  Why?  Cause the enthusiasts are in charge.  The photo session I attended was very interesting because it was led by a guy who loves photography.  Same for the session on podcasting that I attended.
Goodroi / Marketing and Technology Discussed:
Wikipedia Editor Treats Danny Sullivan Like a Spammer  —  Looks like Danny Sullivan headed over to Wikpedia and added some links including one to his site on their page discussing SEO which only had links to search engines.  This did not sit well with a wikipedia editor which removed the links …
Discussion: AMCP Tech Blog and The Blog Herald
Russell Shaw / IP Telephony, VoIP, Broadband:
VoIP service Jajah on my mind- as possible spyware  —  Update: on Saturday, February 11, I received an email from one of the board members of Jajah.  When his name is formally announced next week, I will identify him here.  —  In his email, he denies that Jajah is spyware: … Now to my original post:
Jon Peddie Research reports that 50% of the computers in use today can't run Vista Glass  —  Vista's compositor in Aero Glass would choke on most of the computers in use today—a potential boon for suppliers of add-in boards  —  TIBURON, CA—February 9, 2006—Jon Peddie Research (JPR) …

Kelly / gotomobile:
the mobile designer  —  Mobile designers are the bridge between the end user and the engineering community.  Unlike the web or mainstream design world, mobile designers cannot be simply visually or brand-oriented.  It is mandatory to keep up to date on the latest technologies and handsets …
When network blogs change history it cannot be a good thing  —  The big blog networks are businesses and as such it is in their best interest to spread google juice and link love among all the blogs on their network.  This means that when they have a chance to link to an item of interest seen …
