Hailstorm Warning Ended. Microsoft's project codenamed "Hailstorm," also known as My Services, has been cancelled. The service was intended to allow users to keep their contacts on the web in a central server. It turns out they couldn't find a major partner and they couldn't cover all the security holes. I found out in this NYT article.

I just love seeing Microsoft falter like this. As I slowly move away from the Windows Empire it pleases me to see them losing any ground. Too bad I use IE and Entourage more than any other programs. Arrggghh.
