Once again, Microsoft has given a facelift to the MSN homepage. All Things Digital reports that the new page has started rolling out now. Microsoft's goal is to give roughly 10% of of their user base access to the new page by the time 2010 rolls around. At that point, the updated homepage will be available to all US customers, with a worldwide release to follow.
If you just can't wait to see what's new with MSN, a preview page is available here. My immediate impression of the new page is that there is quite a lot of whitespace. Bing has been integrated into the page, and on the lower right hand side you can see a hotmail and a Windows Live toolbar. The coolest new change is definitely the addition of a Facebook and Twitter sidebar.
The big goal for the new MSN homepage seems to be increasing social networking functionality and pushing Bing as hard as possible. The new site looks easily navigable, and the layout is quite clear. If you're already using MSN as your homepage, this provides a nice upgrade that will give you one-stop access to news, Twitter, and Facebook. If you're not already using MSN though, there's nothing about this revamp that's going to make you want to switch.

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.
