Microsoft the life of all computers, recently launched an invention, much loved by all kids and adults namely, the Kinect. The Kinect is the new addition to the xbox family-with an interesting catch. Unlike other video games, Microsoft Kinect offers you Controller-free gaming, implying full body play. Kinect actually responds to how you move – if you have to kick, then kick, if you have to jump, then jump.

Let’s shift the spotlight to some interesting news about the Company.

Microsoft launched this entertaining Product without owning ‘Kinect.com’ Domain name.  And when they took their step to register this Domain name, the screen blinked in red – ‘Unavailable’. Alas! It sure was a tense moment for Microsoft.

Even after the company filed UDRP’s to get other Kinect related domain names, such as MicrosoftKinect.com, KinectWorld.com and KinectPro.com; Microsoft didn’t own the Domain name Kinect.com. This website automatically gets redirected to CAHG.com and has been registered since the nineties.

Finally, after digging deep into their pockets, Kinect.com was officially theirs.  And today, according to all Whois records, Microsoft owns Kinect.com.

This story could be yours too. If you have a Domain name in mind, then go ahead and book it, before it’s gone. A common myth that haunts everyone is, “Right after booking my Domain name, I need to build my Website”. This is absolutely incorrect.

Just imagine if your business is all set to go live in a week – the shop banner is ready, business cards have been printed, advertisement deals are settled, and when it’s time to book a Domain for your business name you suddenly realize that your website name already exists.

So, book your Domain name with Host Byte before it’s taken!

Google Doodle :)

Noticed a little tweak in the Google homepage today? (If not then take a look right now) ;) believe you me, this is worth a read.

Starting from December 23 through December 25, the Google homepage will display a large interactive doodle in place of the regular Google logo.

The impressive holiday doodle throws light on 17 illustrations, designed to look like beautiful framed paintings that depict colorful scenes of peace, harmony, joy and beauty around the world. The small pictures expand when you mouse over them, and clicking each frame links to a Google page explaining that particular scene. It gets even more interesting with the various hidden messages.

For example, a frame on the far right enlarges to show Santa and his reindeer on a snowy rooftop. If you click that picture, you’re brought to a Google search results page, where you’ll find an animated video of the holiday carol “Up on the Housetop.”

Another frame enlarges to show three women in bright clothes performing an Indian classical dance. Yet another frame shows a snow-capped Mount Fuji. Capturing different cultures and traditions across the planet, is what has touched every individual.

Chief doodler Micheal Lopez and his team of four artists worked on the complex project for roughly 250 hours, phew! “We want to end the year with a bang,” said Lopez, who began work on the holiday doodle back in July, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Take a look at the screenshots of this year’s holiday doodle. To view the interactive version, visit Google.com before evening on December 25.

Facebook – Project ‘Titan’

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently launched what he calls the “modern messaging system” to handle the convergence of different angles of messages and bring them together under one social umbrella. More than four billion messages are sent every day on Facebook, with the vast majority of the messages between two people, according to Zuckerberg.

This new innovation has been designed to save all your messages for 5 years, implying that the user wouldn’t have worry about the history of all his communication.

Wow! Now everyone can have a ‘facebook.com’ email id.

It all began when Zuckerberg was with a couple of friends and he lend his ears to certain complaints regarding the concept of ‘email’. Most of them being, too slow, too much effort & logins to remember.

Mark along with his team decided to build a new messaging system that would include email, expand on the concept and tie in other means of communication as well. “It’s not email, It handles email, in addition to Facebook messages, and IM and SMS” clarified Zuckerberg.

“There was a lot of press leading up to this saying this is an email killer,” he added. “This is not an email killer. It’s a messaging system that has email as one part of it. I don’t expect people to wake up tomorrow and say, ‘I’m going to shut down my Yahoo account or my Gmail account.’ We expect that more people will IM and more people will message just because it’s simpler and easier and it’s more fun to use.”

So far so good let’s see if it’s actually as exciting as it sounds!
