Microsoft JobsBlog brags about Courier… then takes it back

By  |  4 Comments

“Microsoft innovation back on top with Natal, Photosynth, Courier and more” read a headline on the Microsoft JobsBlog.  Still reads the same now, minus the mention of Courier.

Here’s what it looked like today at noon.

But now every mention of Courier is stripped out because, you know, no one’s supposed to know about it. Never mind the previous leaks and its uncanny resemblance to Codex. Guys, I’m all for keeping a lid on future plans and release, but after all we’ve already seen, denying its existence just kind of insults our intelligence at this point.

    Naw, it just stirs the imagination and creates a little intrigue to keep the pot stirred.

    Although it seems to be a step in the good direction at last, I am not sure that Ms. has taken the appropiate lessons about how to maintain the attention and excite the technodreams of people.

    Similar to the domain for sale on eBay, looks like is up for sale. The owner isn’t asking for as much as the domain. Wonder what it will fetch?
