Interesting, both Monster (back in October) and now eBay have dropped Microsoft's Passport service due to privacy and security concerns. That's pretty bad news for Microsoft. Wonder if that'll spur other companies to dump Passport, too. And Microsoft says it's withdrawing the product from the market all together, but it'll still be used for logging into Microsoft sites like Hotmail. Whoops. That's not the greatest end of year news for Microsoft.
Guess it's good to know they don't have a monopoly on *something*.
