The competition between Microsoft and Google is becoming greater as they both try to cross into one another’s domains.

Google have released their own on-line calendar and just when I thought I would stop using Hotmail, I clicked on the “try new beta” in my account and found Microsoft’s new web mail offering.

It has an Outlook-like interface, with calendar and contacts. I haven’t had a chance to try it out yet, but I am sure it will be a hit. More and more corporations are running Outlook so it is going to be nice and familiar for most people.
