On Friday 3rd/May/2013, Microsoft's Hotmail the free webmail service used by hundreds of millions of people around the world, was phased out as the US ICT giant completed a rebranding to Outlook.com.

According to Microsoft's Dick Craddock, the transition began in February, when Microsoft began a test of moving users to the new Outlook.com services. And over 300 million active accounts were successfully transferred to outlook.com.

He said "This made the magnitude of the process incredible, maybe even unprecedented. This meant communicating with hundreds of millions of people, upgrading all their mailboxes - equaling more than 150 million gigabytes of data - and making sure that every person's mail, calendar, contacts, folders and personal preferences were preserved in the upgrade."

Mozilla world's known  web browser has extended it's innovation by launching its own marketplace were users will be in position to download and install games, softwares and many more onto their PCs

So far there are fewer than 200 apps, but obviously Mozilla expects that number to grow rapidly as consumer and developer interest increases. Read More
