Instant Messenger Timezone Detection
Hey Scoble, tell Microsoft to put in some sort of timezone detection in Messenger. That'd get me to use it. You'd be able to see what timezone the user you're chatting to happens to be in. Maybe even show a graphic to help highlight where there are in the world. Heck, pop out a map of the world with dots showing where all your contacts happen to be. THAT would be cool.
I'm usually quite good with timezones, but indeed it would be handy.
Check out the 3D map in this video. Google uses this to track searches around the world. Sounds like what your looking for but I doubt you'll get this cool tool in Messenger.
That's a great idea, but Scoble doesn't work at Microsoft anymore. He left months ago. You'll have to find someone who actually does work there.
And your adsense is cutting right into the last line of your text.
