Microsoft allows Gmail in Hotmail

John Moe Nov 2, 2010

Which is weird. So now if you’re on Hotmail, you can import the contents of your Gmail account or your Yahoo account into your Hotmail interface. Which is like putting a Mercedes engine in your Pinto. Microsoft says that they know many people have multiple email accounts. So it’s more convenient, I suppose, to just have them all feed right in to the suckiest user interface possible.

“Honestly, Hotmail is just completely terrible,” a Microsoft spokesman ought to have said.
