Microsoft Home all wired up

Published Sep. 28, 2005

Apparently, life must get more complicated before it can get simpler.

At least that's the song Microsoft is singing.

The software giant recently unveiled the Microsoft Home in New York, a completely wired, networked home the company says will make daily living more simple and more enjoyable.

The 8,000-square-foot loft in the Tribeca area of Manhattan has three bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, dining room and home office and includes a network of PCs and appliances.

There are all kinds of bells and whistles, including an Internet appliance that gives you access to recipes, e-mail and instant messaging and lets your kids in the bedroom know it's time for dinner.

Of course, you don't have to visit New York to see it: You can take a virtual tour online at .com/mshome/.
