It really doesn't ping me the same way as Dell's thing did -- Dell was
trying to sell technology by assuming that women won't like tech
unless it's shiny and pink. MS has run MSN for years now as
news/lifestyle portal site that's really got nothing much to do with
their software branch; this looks to me like a new section of that,
parallel to their sports news areas.

I'm no fan of the pushing of consumer-oriented standards of beauty
everywhere I turn, but that's both a broader and a different question
than MSN's involvement.
