Risk in office blogs

,----[ Quote ]
| Mini Microsoft, the anonymous blogger widely believed to be
| a well-informed employee working at the software companyâs
| Redmond headquarters, heavily criticised this yearâs
| Microsoft annual employee meeting. He gave a two-zero
| rating to Steve Ballmer, Microsoftâs chief executive, and
| described Stephen Elop, head of Microsoftâs business
| division, as âsuck[ing] the life out of the entire
| stadiumâ.


Microsoft offers no reasons for discontinuation of two Dynamics mobile products

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft officials notified the companyâs partners on
| September 1 that Microsoft is discontinuing the mobile
| versions of its Dynamics AX and Dynamics NAV ERP
| products.
| (Word of the move trickled out broadly last Friday,
| via a report from IDG News Service.)
| What is still not clear is why Microsoft officials
| made the decision to phase out the two products. I
| asked why Microsoft decided to discontinue the mobile
| clients for the Dynamics products, but received an
| answer from a spokesperson that elaborated on the
| âwhen,â but omitted the âwhy.â

| their loyal user base.


Yahoo Answers wins: Microsoft to kill QnA on May 21

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft's QnA website has had a very shaky development, never quite
| becoming good enough to lose the beta tag, and never quite becoming popular
| enough for its company to give it the attention it really required. Finally,
| the long road for QnA is coming to a dead end. On the Live QnA Team Blog this
| week, Microsoft announced that it would be discontinuing its QnA service.

Microsoft continues paring back the Windows Live family

,----[ Quote ]
| But the future of services outside of the core Windows Live group seems
| uncertain. I had been hearing talk for the past few months that Microsoft was
| readying a new consumer service for public safety. The alleged service,
| according to sources, was designed to help individuals locate friends and
| family members during a crisis or catastrophe. (I heard Microsoft might be
| eveloping a similar service aimed at enterprises, too.) Given that the
| Windows Live team seems more focused on paring down than building out the
| Live stable of services, Iâm wondering whether this one will ever see the
| light of day.


Is Windows Live dying?

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the last year, Microsoft's Windows Live service lineup has
| grown exponentially. At one point months ago, it seemed clear
| that every service Microsoft brought online would fall under the
| Live brand, but lately the trend seems to be moving slowly in
| the opposite direction. What's happening to Windows Live?

Sources: Several Windows Live Projects Halted

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft's Windows Live desktop search project has been
| shelved "indefinitely," although not much reasoning has been
| given as to the reason for its demise.


Microsoft Office Live migration is adding insult to injury

,----[ Quote ]
| On January 29, Microsoft posted to the Office Live blog a status update
| re: the migration. The news isn't good.
| Office Live logoBeta testers are still potentially "months" away fromb
| eing migrated to the final version of their Office Live services.
| Functionality like backup and restore isn't going to work until
| their accounts are migrated. And Microsoft will give testers only
| a 24-hour heads-up when they are set to be migrated. During that
| 24-hour period, users won't be able to make changes to their
| Office Live sites.


Office Live: Better Off Dead?

,----[ Quote ]
| Last month I killed Office Live in an act of self defense, after
| repeated access problems and attempts to move my domain to another
| registrar. Judging from the comments to that post, there's an Office
| Live killing spree going on. Not surprisingly, Microsoft wants to put
| an end to the wanton killing.


Microsoft profit on slide

,----[ Quote ]
| Some analysts are looking for any signs of improvement from
| Microsoft's internet division, which continues to lose market
| share in web search to Google.
| Microsoft's online services group saw revenue fall for the last
| four quarters and posted a loss in the past three quarters while
| it shifted to a new internet advertising platform and overhauled
| the company's web properties.


Not all Microsoft 'Lives' are created equal

,----[ Quote ]
| Is it time for a Microsoft-wide purge of the "Live" brand? If you look
| at the myriad, incongruous ways that Microsoft is using "Live" across
| its various product divisions, you might say yes.
