Microsoft and Frontbridge

As I’ve  mentioned before, Microsoft have now completed the acquisition of Frontbridge technologies.  here’s the info from the presspass site, and news comments are starting to appear…

The acquisition of FrontBridge allows Microsoft to deliver services for enforcing compliance through archiving, ensuring e-mail availability in the case of a disaster, and improving protection of employee inboxes from viruses and spam.  FrontBridge, now a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft, will continue to offer managed messaging services for multiple e-mail platforms such as Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and other SMTP-compliant servers currently supported by FrontBridge.

I think that this is a really Interesting compliance offering for Exchange…should be good to see what happens moving forward.

You’ve probably seen this already on the Exchange blog already.  Nino is much more efficient than me 🙂

HTC Universal – now on sale

But you’ve got to go to Germany to buy one at the moment… I noticed that the Register said that the HTC universal was on sale (in Germany) today (or yesterday). It’s described as a clamshell – but its not the sort of clamshell that immediately comes to mind (the Star Trek communicator thingy).  It’s bigger, heavier – sort of more solid.  It reminds me of a make up compact – with a screen for a mirror (Very girly thought I know).  But having had a bit of a play with Jason’s (phone) the other day I now really want one for myself.

Jason has a good photo of it on his blog…just in case you were a bit concerned about the make up comment…

Nice size – not too heavy and an amazingly clear screen.  Time to dump my M1000 I think…or should I wait for something better (again)?
