The picture, showing employees sitting around a desk, appeared unaltered on the firm's US website. But on the website of its Polish business unit the black man's head was replaced with a white face, although the

  3. Microsoft to offer free security The new software will protect machines running XP, Vista, and Windows 7 In a surprise move, Microsoft has announced it will offer a free anti-virus and security solution from the second half of next year. It will stop selling OneCare, its all-in-one security and PC management service, from the end of June 2009. The new software, code-named Morro, will
  4. Original story link SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) will turn to users of its Xbox 360 to create new video games and broaden the types of games available on its console, taking a page out of the strategy books of Facebook and YouTube. The world's largest software maker said on Tuesday that it will start selling "user-generated" games later this year on its online Xbox Live service and share up to 70 percent of revenue with the game developer. Microsoft began offering game production tools in 2006 to amateurs and hobbyists under an initiative called "XNA," which allowed devel
  5. SOFTWARE GIANT Microsoft is so worried that Nintendo will dominate the market for lardy geeks who want to do a bit of exercise, that it has released a fitness game of its own. The Xbox-ercise Alive game uses the XBox 360's better graphics to show realistic fitness instructors and, unlike the Wii, features more violence. As game's marketing director Todd Belham charmingly pointed out that yoga and dance were all fun, but you need some serious violence to get people into shape. He said the Wii Fit stuff was for wimps. You burn a lot more calories smashing the controller into someone’s skull t

  7. Microsoft's latest attempt to compete with Google in the internet search market will involve the software giant in paying consumers who buy items they find through its search service. Microsoft has announced plans to create a service called Live Search cashback, for which it will join forces with retail partners, such as eBay, Barnes & Noble.com and Sears, promising to offer customers “ad-funded cash rebates”. The launch of the new service is part of a wider move from Microsoft to attract more people to its internet search service. Full story here
  8. Microsoft will launch Worldwide Telescope, a tool for exploring images of the night sky, by the end of May, free to anyone who wants to use it, Microsoft's chairman said Friday. Worldwide Telescope is software that allows people to gaze at the universe through the data collected by telescopes all around the world -- and above it: there's even data from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

  9. Microsoft has started shipping the first versions of Windows XP Service Pack 3 to PC manufacturers. Current XP users can expect to see the service pack become available for download on 29 April. Windows XP SP3 contains minor performance and stability enhancements, in addition to a cumulative security update. It is the first service pack to be released for Windows XP since SP2 in 2004. The pack will also contain updates which will make it easier for network administrators to manage SP3 machines alongside Windows Vista PCs. Full story here
  10. The average US user probably pays Microsoft about $1 a month for Windows, assuming they only get a new copy when they buy a new PC after an average four years. That's OK since the real money comes from enterprises, but still, Microsoft would much rather consumers paid $5 or $10 a month. And the way to do that is by selling a subscription service such as OneCare. That looks after three PCs for €50 a year. Having got OneCare going, Microsoft is now looking to the next step: an expanded version called Albany. Full story here
  11. The expected release date contradicts earlier statements by Bill Gates that his company might ship a new version of its Windows operating system as soon as 2009. Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) is backing off comments by chairman Bill Gates that the next version of Windows could be available as early as next year. "We are currently in the planning stages for Windows 7 and development is scoped to three years from Windows Vista consumer" general availability, a Microsoft spokesman said in an e-mail Friday to InformationWeek. Windows Vista was released to consumers in late January 2007. That
  12. According to an anonymous source close to MTV News, Microsoft will soon launch a Wii Remote imitator for Xbox 360, replete with Mii knock-offs, in an effort to capitalize on Nintendo's raging success. "They want the usual assortment of 'Halo'/ 'Gears'/ 'Forza'/ whatever, just in waggle form," the nameless developer said. "Microsoft is trying to decide how to get something out by the end of the year." The loose-lipped mole sketched a design of the last-known prototype, that looks eerily similar to the Wii Remote, but says development problems have arose because Microsoft is impatiently tryi
  13. Microsoft is offering no-charge Vista SP1 help for all users via e-mail and online chat. By Paul McDougall InformationWeek March 24, 2008 02:48 PM Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) has responded to numerous complaints about its new service pack for Windows Vista with an offer of free support for anyone having trouble installing or running the update. According to Microsoft's support Web site, the company is offering no-charge Vista SP1 help for all users via e-mail and online chat.

  14. Microsoft has cut the price of its Xbox 360 video game console in Europe. From 14th March, the 20 gigabyte hard drive model will cost 270 euros, a drop in price of 80 euros. In the UK, the entry level machine, which does not come with any hard drive, will cost £159.99, £40 less than the current price. The price drops mean that the versions of the console are now cheaper than both of its competitors - the Nintendo Wii and Sony's PlayStation 3 (PS3). Sony's 40GB console currently retails for £299.99 compared to £259.99 for Microsoft's top level machine - the Xbox 360 Elite, which has a 120

  17. More bolt-ons than Frankenstein's Monster A mouse is a mouse, right? You move it, it moves a thingy on the screen, it's as simple as that. Well not when you're a hardcore PC gamer it's not. For these guys, a mouse is a precision tool that needs to react exactly how and when you want it to, or be laughed to the bottom of every scoreboard in town. And you're not going to get much more precise than the Sidewinder mouse from Microsoft: a resolution of up to 2000dpi (not that you'll need it) and interchangeable teflon feet for a smoother glide.

  18. Yahoo has rejected a takeover bid worth more than $40bn from computer software giant Microsoft because it is too low. Yahoo said the offer "substantially undervalues" the company and is not in shareholders' interests. Microsoft's offer was worth $31 a share, 62% above the level at which Yahoo stocks were trading when the offer was made on 1 February. A merged Microsoft and Yahoo would be one of the biggest technology firms, and would rival industry leader Google. Read story here
  19. Microsoft has offered to buy the search engine company Yahoo for $44.6bn (£22.4bn) in cash and shares. The offer, contained in a letter to Yahoo's board, is 62% above Yahoo's closing share price on Thursday. Yahoo cut its revenue forecasts earlier this week and said it would have to spend an additional $300m this year trying to revive the company. It has been struggling in recent years to compete with Google, which has also been a competitor to Microsoft. Full story here

Microsoft facing $1bn Xbox bill Some Xbox Live gamers have complained about fraud Microsoft has said that it is facing a bill of more than $1bn to cover the cost of offering extended warranties, after failings with its Xbox 360.
