    February 22, 2005

And as if you needed any more convincing that Microsoft wants to own your home …

Link: Microsoft, Alcatel in Internet TV pact:

As part of their joints efforts, the companies will develop and customize new applications for various markets around the world and enhance network reliability for large-scale deployments of the technology, they said.

The collaboration pairs Paris-based Alcatel, which provides telecom equipment for voice, data and video, with the world’s largest software company, based in Redmond, Wash.

Alcatel will be Microsoft’s preferred network access and systems integration partner, while Microsoft TV will be Alcatel’s preferred software partner for the Internet-television efforts, globally.
