      Skype is also one of the few divisions not using ”Microsoft Corporation” for their apps (for example, Mail, Windows Live Messenger, Xbox Music, Bing Maps, Bing Finance, Bing News, Bing Sports, Hotmail Calendar, SkyDrive, SkyDrive Pro, OneNote, Etc), while other divisions have their own apps.

      Microsoft Research (mostly scientific and metadata apps, and some ”fun apps” as PhotoFace, Bing Mind-Reading Robot and others).

      Microsoft Studios (Mostly Xbox LIVE games).

      M.S.N. China (the Bing Dictionary, Bing Maps and Bing Images, the Simplified-Chinese versions of the aforementioned)
