Outlook.com Beta

Yesterday the preview of Microsofts Outlook.com went live. Until yesterday I ignored hotmail.com, mostly because it was Microsoft and partly because I was late to the game. But when I saw the Outlook preview come by on Twitter I wanted to be one of the first to be there in order to reserve my account username. I am not going to write the account name out here, but I think you might guess it. Online Outlook is going to replace Hotmail and will totally be HTML5 driven, so I hope there will be no more IE dependencies. There will also be the possibility to connect social media accounts, Skype will be integrated and Google contact can be connected. I will not use it much, but it’s good to have it around and to be able to support suffering people.
