Lots of postings about a couple of announcements from the mothership today. First is MOOL, which is a subscription service that allows you to synch Hotmail with Outlook. This seems to explain why my Hotmail mail account in Outlook stopped working a couple of months ago!
The second is more of a mystery - could be a desktop search engine, could some toolbar thing (aargh). I downloaded something called Lookout a few weeks ago, which is a desktop search tool that was bought recently by M$ - it didn't really work for me, and kept crashing, but its fans rave about it?
