Outlook.com already snags 10 million users
Just two weeks following its launch, the new Outlook.com is claiming a milestone number of users.
In case you’ve been living under a rock (or a loyal Gmail user), Outlook.com is Microsoft’s new iteration of Hotmail.
The new webmail service looks incredibly sleek and modern – with almost too much blank space and minimalistic design for some.
When I first blogged about Outlook.com, many of you left angry comments.
"Can I have the Hotmail that I signed up for 12 years ago back please? I am sick and tired of all these changes every 2 years. If its not broken ... DONT FIX IT!" wrote David, along with several others who agreed with him.
"I hate the change and am switching to another service," wrote Sharon.
The feedback wasn’t all negative.
Stephen said he liked the new Outlook.com – and the changes made to SkyDrive.
Speaking of Skydrive, Microsoft also pulled the wraps off details about improvements made to its cloud storage service.
In a nutshell, SkyDrive.com now shares a similar interface – its design is as clean as a hospital operating room.
Also, Microsoft has rolled out apps for Android and support for both Windows and Mac OS X computers, so you can easily access your files from any computer or practically any device.
