Outlook.com Is Near Perfect
John Dvorak, PC Magazine
You have to laugh at the fact that it took more than a decade for Microsoft to transition from Hotmail to Outlook.com. The company was clearly baffled by Hotmail in every way.
First of all, Hotmail sounds like some sort of sex service. I was stunned when Microsoft bought it and its customers. I was further stunned when the company failed to change its name to something that sounded more normal, like Microsoft Mail. Actually, microsoftmail.com does exist and now forwards to Outlook.com, which actually forwards to mail.live.com.
Well, that's finally over and now we have Outlook.com with a whole new look and feel.
TAGGED: email, Outlook
