DomainWatch: MSFT Goes Hyper

By - October 14, 2007

Ballmer Developers

What would we do without Gary and Resourceshelf? Well, we’d be dumb about domains, for one. He’s got new domains registered by Google and Microsoft. Runes, they are, runes.

Perhaps most interesting is Google’s registration of the domain,, last Tuesday. Nothing is online at this domain the the last time we checked. …Once again, Microsoft shows no signs of slowing down registering domains. Here’s a web page that lists what’s been registered in the past week.

Something is clearly going on around the word “hyper” in Microsoft land. I like the best, personally.

Or…maybe it’s just Steve covering his brand image as hyper about developers

    I think it has to do with the next iteration of the xbox. At the bottom of the list are references to a vbox. We’ll have to wait and see.

  4. Rob says:

    This is simply VM-ware. Microsoft wants to get into the whole server virtualisation game and has made a couple of acquisitions over the past 18-months.

    I’d be surprised if its not…

    If it’s a hypervisor, I hope they’re buying up Emagine. I’ve been watching this company for a long time waiting for it to break. Their tech is great, they have the best oled products out there. Someone needs to snatch them up.
