Thoughts, about stuff

Big month for Windows Live

with 2 comments

August is shaping up to be a big month for Windows Live judging by stuff I’ve picked up from around the web. I happen to know that there is a new product release coming on 4th August; Mary-Jo Foley hinted yesterday that a new private beta for Windows Live wave 3 is due very soon, Windows-Live-senior-tech-product-manager-marketeer-cum-evangelist-type-guy Angus Logan said in an overnight Twitter "we have some stuff FINALLY being made available next week"; and to top it all the $300m marketing blitz that was promised for Windows Live should soon be seeing the light of day.
Something else that has hit the webwaves overnight is a new podcast from Windows Live community manager Marcus Schmidt. Read what Marcus has to say about it on his blog entry Podcast: What is Windows Live. I’ve told Marcus that he needs to make this available as a podcast feed so that we can subscribe to it through our iPods and Zunes so hopefully we’ll see that soon.
Update: Marcus has made a podcast feed available: http://marcussc.web.officelive.com/Documents/winlivemp3feed.xml

  1. Interesting. I really do hope for some new updates. Microsoft is always slow with updating their products and services.

  2. I think they’ll need every cent of that $300m, as I use a few "Live" programs, yet I still don’t get what makes them more special than when everything Microsoft did not contain that word :)
    They might be useful programs, but ‘Live’ or not, right now I see no advantage to branding everything with it.
