Photos and links at www.live.com


In case you haven’t visited lately, www.live.com has been doing for a while this thing where each day they’ll have a different background picture, usually a gorgeous photo, and then when you hover over the picture with your mouse different areas will be highlighted with links on them. I find visiting this page every day just to see the picture and perhaps ‘invest’ some time following interesting links.


Today’s picture is of a couple of folks trekking the Himalayas, and the topmost link is of a map with a collection of very interesting links (it’s the link that says Annapurna). I had no idea of the kind of things you could find in collections…


Anyway, I thought I’d pass on that bit of information, in case others might also find it interesting.


Enjoy!

    You may want to point out the fact that its US-only, as usual Live Search don’t deem the rest of the world worthy.

    That’s why Live Search sucks as compared to Google.

  3. Well, according to http://blogs.msdn.com/livesearch/archive/2008/07/30/new-home-page-aims-to-help-you-explore-more-on-the-web.aspx, the features started off in the US and was going to be expanded. I tried it last week from Argentina and I got the changing background pics.
