The software company has taken down a site, socl.com, that some say is a social service that Microsoft has yet to unveil. For its part, the company says it's an internal design project that was "mistakenly published to the Web."
Microsoft has accidentally revealed what looks like the home page for a new social network. It's called Tulalip and seems to be some kind of search tool with social features.
The site appears ready to challenge Facebook and Google with an experience The Verge describes as mixing search, discovery, and social networking.
Plus points for Google, which has unleashed a Google+ app for your iPhone. The app is now available in the iTunes App Store for you to take the Big G's new social network out and about with you.
Brian Tong has a rule about no technology in the bedroom. Molly's not so sure. It's Computer Love Friday, everyone! Also, Google continues to make piles of cash and says it's making tons of money (again), and Microsoft may or may not be working on a social/search hybrid site. RIM may or may not be working on an Apple TV competitor, which we fervently pray is not true. Please, RIM. Please don't do it.
