Microsoft

thefickler (1030556) writes "Microsoft's new Popfly service, which the company describes as an easy way to build and share mashups, gadgets, Web pages, and applications, is now officially in alpha release. While comparisons have been made between Popfly and some of the other Web 2.0 gadget/mashup services from companies such as Yahoo and Google, Microsoft has made it clear that Popfly is what the company has been all about since the day it launched BASIC for the Altair 8080."
