Blogging War - Episode 1

According to eWEEK, MSN is set to launch its own blogging service titled MSN Spaces, which will also allow users to share music lists and photo albums easily. MSN previously launched the Japanese version of MSN Spaces, still in the beta version. I'm personally looking forward to MSN Spaces - hopefully they'll introduce features Blogger has yet to offer. I suppose MSN really is feeling the heat, what with Google's purchase of Blogger. After the recent browser and e-mail wars, maybe a blogging war is next?

It would be very appropriate if we don't attribute every strategic move made in Computing world to be any part of frigging jargons such as this war or that war. I am quite surprised people still consider Netscape to be part of Browser-wars which truly were raged and ended long before. But if we look it from the view of wars, every news these days must trigger some sort of war? for example, Ebay purchasing Paypal and creating God knows what threats to Amazon and Amazon consequently building and launching A9 thus creating ultimate havoc and chaos cyberspace has been scared of chiefly Google if I must say and the list must go on. I know I have already over-emphasized but this was only to request if we could keep ourselves using any and every jargon, buzzword and eccentric terms just to prove God knows what. It actually is quite bizarre way of telling news, well not at least a suitable internet way anyway. Peace!

Funny, I thought H IS being sardonic using 'War'. Easy does it Ejaz.

Do you think there is such a thing as too much blogging about blogging?

H.A. said...

Well, most of us here are full time bloggers so why not?:)

Do you think it's possible for people to choke on their own saliva? :-)

Zunaira said...

@H: Heh. Despite being full-time bloggers, I still think we could use some other news. Getting bored of looking at blogs, browsers and MSN on the Spider blog. Anyone else agree?

@M: Huh?

Merlinx said...

Hehe! :-))

I mean all this blogging about blogging is akin to choking on your own drool. It's a bit of an oxymoron (to me at least). And yeah I agree, the thrust of this blog could use a shift -- it's been discussing the same topics over and over for some time now like some kind of obsessive compulsive disorder.
