Bing for iPhone

I did my last post when I got to know Microsoft is developing Bing and Messenger for iPhone. Today I was lucky to get my hands on Bing for iPhone. If there is something that the word awesome is not enough, I would happily use Masterpiece to describe it. :) Yes “Microsoft Team iPhone” you’ll have done a tremendous job by designing and developing Bing for iPhone. Glance through the pics below, you’ll see how feature rich and eye catching the app is.

Both applications are likely to be released alongside the upcoming Windows Live Wave 4 updates due in approximately March 2010. Last week Microsoft principal group program manager David Raissipour confirmed to Cnet news that "We are actively working on it" when questioned over the Bing iPhone plans.

How the Windows 7 start up animation evolved

Recently I saw this article on how the Windows 7 start up animation evolved and not to forget, the person behind the Windows 7 start up animation, Rolf Ebeling.

image “Having only been with the company for four months and suddenly finding myself working on the first thing millions of people would see when they started up Windows 7 … was a peculiar realization to wake up to each morning,” Ebeling says.
