Microsoft getting snotty with Apple's Safari

Microsoft is locking Safari users from its Hotmail service.

Apple is trying to make its Safari browser relevant to the Windows platform. According to early reports, however, Microsoft disagrees, leaving Hotmail users (who still uses Hotmail????) stranded:

Recent changes to Microsoft's Hotmail service appears to have left Safari-using Mac users out of luck. Currently, logging into Hotmail with a Safari browser causes an infinite redirect loop (or stops when Safari has said "enough redirects!").

Microsoft is big on interoperability, Apple. Try entering into a(nother) patent agreement with the company. That seems to do the trick.
