Microsoft morning news roundup: Google’s netbook pops up, tidbits on social networking in Windows Live

  • Computerworld has some early info on Google’s Android software for netbooks, which would compete with Microsoft’s Windows software for the low-cost laptops built for basic computing like e-mailing and surfing the Web. Built by SkyTone in China, CW says, the new device undercuts most netbooks out there on cost, and should end up costing $100 to $200.
  • Techcrunch has some tidbits on social networking in Windows Live. It reports that Microsoft plans to announce a number of partners today that would stream social feed updates onto the Windows Live page. Facebook and Digg are on their list, but no Twitter. Update 10:37a: Twitter feeds are already available on Windows Live.
