We are not robots

Max MishaMicrosoft has delivered what looks to be its competitor to iLife, codenamed MicrosoftMax (a codename is kind of like saying “beta”, except that they can change the name and confuse you later on). And by “competitor to iLife”, I’m looking squarely at the Podcasting, Photocasting and SafariRSS features and product.

According to Niall, it features news displayed in a newspaper layout and two-pane interface, a bit different approach than many other aggregators on the market.

Sounds also like an attack on Google’s Reader but what do I know? I can’t install it on my Mac anyway.

Anyway, Flock might also take note, since this technology does indeed, from the outside, look pretty attractive — and hints at more to come in the realm of syndicated content in Vista and beyond.

Oh, and the team building it are not robots, according to their own reports.
