Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Microsoft serving Alice’s Ristorante

In the latest win for Microsoft’s TV and Web services platform, the company today announced a huge contract to provide technology to Telecom Italia. The carrier, which markets its consumer Internet services under the “Alice” brand, has been testing an Internet protocol TV service called “Alice Home TV” that’s based on MIcrosoft and Alcatel technology. Today the companies said Alice Home TV will be launched later this year.

Microsoft is also helping the Telecom Italia develop business and consumer Web services. The first will be “Alice’s Super-mailbox,” a free 3 gigabyte e-mail service powered by Exchange Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003. Later they’ll offer businesses hosted e-mail, collaboration and videoconferencing services.

Alice calls to mind the “Brady Bunch’s” housekeeper, but Telecom Italia opted for a different image to personify its cutting-edge services.
