Microsoft tests Windows Live video search

Microsoft adds video search to Windows Live.

Microsoft has quietly added video search to its Windows Live search engine.

The new feature, which is in beta form, allows users to type in search terms and find video clips related to those terms. Users can test the new service here:

Results are displayed with a still photo of the video, and a brief description of the contents of the video.

Microsoft joins Google, Yahoo and America Online, all of which already provide search engines for online videos. The software company continues to add services to its Windows Live services portfolio in an effort to bolster online ad revenue.

Microsoft rebranded its MSN search engine under the Windows Live brand as part of its Web-based services push, first launched in November 2005.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
