Microsoft

+ - Microsoft donating to charity for your IMs

Submitted by Mini-Geek
Mini-Geek (915324) writes "Microsoft has launched i'm. After you put the code in your Windows Live Messenger (needs to be 8.1, so no Linux without some sort of emulator) Display Name, Microsoft will donate money to the charity you chose for every ad you see in the message window. From the link: "i'm is a new initiative from Windows Live(TM) Messenger. Every time you start a conversation using i'm, Microsoft shares a portion of the program's advertising revenue with some of the world's most effective organizations dedicated to social causes. We've set no cap on the amount we'll donate to each organization. The sky's the limit. There's no charge, so join now and put our money where your mouth is.""

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
