Microsoft at it again... Do you think also that they've been sitting about watching a Mac boot up? That scrolly clock thing feels very familiar :)
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:

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?

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

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.
