    I find it funny... no Hilarious, that if you mention Microsoft copying Apple to a PC fan they go ballistic and say they don't. But it is so damn obvious in everything they do. This 'loading bar' is only a small thing this time but its a blatant rip off. And dont get me started on Gadgets... sorry Widgets! :rolleyes:

    link - the demo video is scary. Oddly, they're using Flash instead of their own stuff.

    After seeing iMeowbots link it just backs up my first post. I know Apple doesnt have the 'copyright' of gradient fills but it tastes too much of Apple. As well as the black and white video controls. Hmmm.... where have I seen those before?

    I just saw the article on the BBC website too. Such an apple ripoff! Unbelievable.

    I thought it was some amateur's link. Was it supposed to be a tall, skinny guy in tights with butterfly wings who's obviously never danced in his life?

    I'm afraid so! MSN will hire people from time to time to dress up in those outfits and roller skate around different cities.

    Man, they are obviously trying to get the teen population with that vid-



    OMG, random! Must be a good service!


    Ripoff- and the site says "Make your statement". Yet another Microsoft Oxymoron.

    Yeah, I was going to make a similar comment. I have not seen a javascript "ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO LEAVE THIS SITE?" interrupt in years.

    Wow. I never expected to see one again, let alone from a prominent business' website.
