Microsoft Unveils Live Mesh Web Service

 10:50 am on Apr 23, 2008 (gmt 0)

Microsoft has lifted the lid on a new web service called Live Mesh, designed to connect a multiplicity of devices and applications online.

The service is seen by many as a key plank in the company's vision for the future of the web.

Live Mesh is designed to blur the lines between running software and storing data on a desktop and "in the cloud".

Microsoft's Amit Mital said Live Mesh would "connect and bring devices together... to work in concert". "This new software-plus-services platform enables PCs and other devices to 'come alive' by making them aware of each other through the internet," said Mr Mital.

I wonder what sort of security issues this will cause? :)

Well, you remember in Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines, when everything from cash registers to television signals were failing at the same time, world wide . . .

Microsoft will face the Google's competition from many web based services directly.

Live Mesh is really a great leap forward but it will take a while for people to understand it.

If I'm understanding it right. I can put a document that I'm working on in my office into a special folder and over the weekend retrieve the document and update it. Then on Monday morning, the document will be as I changed it when I get to my office.

There are other ways to do this but they lack the simplicity of Live Mesh.

Or I can put a document in a special folder and the guy on the west coast can review it and make changes and put it back and it's on my office computer when I get in, in the morning.

It seems to have a small start up. I need to set up the folder and sign up for Live Mesh. After that I'm just using my Word program to update a document.

Sounds good to me!
