    Microsoft Acquires File-Sharing Pando For Next-Gen Xbox?

    Pando is a file sharing system like Peer 2 Peer and Bit Torrents…

    ]Calcalist an Israeli news site has reported that Microsoft has acquired Fendo’s Pando software for $11,000,000.00 – if you’ve never heard of the software before, Pando makes downloading, streaming and sharing large media files fast. If you need to email large attachments, IM a folder, or publish downloadable videos to the Web this is where Pando can streamline the whole process in a great way. It’s widely used by a host of well-known companies and software providers with the gaming industry part of their largest client base.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#666666 !important]Calcalist quotes that the purchase was made in part to give Microsoft an advantage in sharing media files for the launch of the new Xbox gaming console which is expected in June, and to compete with Sony, who revealed last month its future media console PlayStation 4.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#666666 !important]By June, we take this to mean an E3 reveal rather than a launch but with Sony showcasing some great services with Gaikai streaming and Ustream for the PS4 – Microsoft could be about to unveil something similar for the new Xbox which has not yet been officially unveiled, unlike the PS4.

    f this turns out to be something in preparation for the next Xbox, we’ll keep you posted.

    Couldn't Microsoft do this on their own? Don't they already have software applications in place to do something similar?

    The word sensible is not in MS lexicon. MS strategy has been and (probably) always will be, throw money away and rush half a**ed products to the market to claim market share.

    MOD Edit: replace $ with S.

    That's what I was thinking. I'm kind of confused. They already have SkyDrive.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.
