Event planning: new tool of Windows Live services

Is great for Microsoft user, that you are getting event planning software online for your event. we hope it will help personal and corporate affairs in vast way.

Microsoft Corp. is rolling out a new feature, an event planning, for expanding Windows Live suite of services, which is called "Windows Live Events."

This party-invitation service works like a better-know program called "Evite." It allows existing Live users to design a Web page to create online invitations using, choosing from over 100 templates, then invite guests and blog about the event on your space.

Users can choose e-mail addresses of people to invite to their event from an address book they may already have in Hotmail or Messenger. They can also type in e-mail addresses.

At first, most people will likely use it for private, invitation-only events, Greg Sterling, founder of Sterling Market Research said.

However, as the Live platform gains momentum, he expects more people will use the page as a de facto blog.

"I can see people using the page as a promotional vehicle to draw attendees to public events," he said. "One feature that is particularly interesting is the ability to post photos and have discussions after an event," according to media reports.

The service begins rolling out to the public on Thursday night and will be accessible at over the following days. It will target the same 56 markets where Spaces is available.

Microsoft also is announcing that it is doubling the free storage in its Windows Live SkyDrive hosted storage beta offering to one gigabyte. In addition, people can subscribe to RSS feeds from any public folders now.

Windows Live Events is Microsoft's latest step in its campaign to go head-to-head with Google and Yahoo in the market for online tools and services.

The company recently unveiled Office Live Workspace, Microsoft Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and a host of other Web-based productivity and collaboration tools. The "Live" software-as-a-service products are aimed at consumers while the "Online" offerings are meant for enterprise use.
