Some Microsoft news items from this week that didn’t find a post of their own:

Microsoft will provide search, mail, and messaging services to the customers of India’s 4th largest mobile provider, Hutchison Essar.

Microsoft released a Community Technology Preview (CTP) of the Microsoft Robotics Studio which was announced in June.

Microsoft’s Live Labs And Microsoft Research launched a tech preview of Photosynth, an application that blends ordinary photos into an immersive 3D image.

From last week: Microsoft and a number of other leading tech companies settled the “JPEG patent case” with Forgent Networks for considerably less than Forgent had been hoping for.
