    Today’s read: Various ! 

    It’s been a while since I wrote anything here. I was kinda busy with so many things and that made me to stay away from writing for these many days.

    Today I’ve found a few articles in fastcompany.com (via twitter), fastcodesign.com & Smashing Magazine. And I’m really surprised by some of the facts which I found and some facts are really cool.

    1. You Can’t Appreciate How Completely Apple Has Humiliated The Cellphone Industry Until You See These Charts (Article page)
    This really surprised me. This article talks about how Apple rules the cell phone industry in terms of the profit they make even though they sell only 3% of the handsets! Don’t miss the charts in that page. They tell lot of stories.

    2. Google Steals Ideas From Bing, Bing Steals Market Share From Google (Article page)
    This made me happy. I am a big Microsoft fan though I work most on open source ! And I am really happy with the way how Bing works for them.

    3. Create a Font From Your Own Handwriting (Article page)
    This is what the article says !

    If you’re nostalgic for the days of long, handwritten letters, Pilot Pens has unveiled a new Web-based app that’s perfect for you: PilotHandwriting.com will turn your handwriting into your very own digital font, which you can then use in a letter to someone.

    4. Designing Style Guidelines For Brands And Websites (Article page)
    The article talks more about the branding guidelines, usage of colors, text and fonts with the help of guidelines followed by some of the well known global brands like BlackBerry, I love New York and Skype.

    Have a nice read !

    New enhanced Microsoft Live Search 

    Microsoft, the world’s largest software maker, said Windows Live search is now on an even technology footing with offerings from rival search engines after years of playing catch-up since it started developing its own Web search in 2003.

    Its new presentation is in line with an industry trend to step beyond traditional text links, with unified search results that offer Web sites, news, pictures and video on one page. Rivals Google Inc and Ask.com made similar changes this year, and Yahoo Inc is moving in that direction.

    “Microsoft is realistic. It doesn’t think it’s going to wake up tomorrow and overtake Google,” said Allen Weiner, an analyst at research firm Gartner. “Right now, Microsoft wants to establish itself more firmly with its existing users.”
