Live Mesh is the brainchild of Ray Ozzie, the new chief software architect at MS and was apparently 2 years in the making.
Microsoft's "Live Mesh" uses the Internet as a data hub and synchronizes files across computers, phones and other devices.Live Mesh is open to all developers as it is supposed to be cross-platform and cross-browser. It will be based on standard protocols and feeds the Web 2.0 crowd embraces like Http, RSS, REST, ATOM, JSON and FeedSync.
Microsoft plans to release Live Mesh in a widely-available test, or "beta" version before the end of 2008.
More details in this earlier story and on ZDNet. ZDNet also has a couple of screenshots of Live Mesh.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
