Windows 8 Software

Today Microsoft announced what apps would be built into Windows 8. As expected, mail, people and photos are inbuilt however surprisingly, lots of Bing apps are built in as well such as Bing Maps, Bing News and lots more Bing information apps. Skydrive, Calender, Music and Video are also included.

Firefox has also announced it's Windows 8 app this week. The desktop browser company has launched the app so it it ready for the launch of Windows 8 on the 26th of October.
I must admit that I've never actually used Firefox however this app looks like it has some quite good features.
Unfortunately though, it looks like every other app on the Windows 8 marketplace. At least with the iPad every app looked and worked completely different.
