Windows Live Messenger 2011 Public Beta - Contact List

"A public beta of Windows Live Messenger 2011 has been released by Microsoft. Coming part of an extensive package of Windows Live Essential's new betas, Microsoft's IM client has received an array of new features and improvements for users to test before the application's official release expected mid-August.

Some observations we've made

* The build number is 15.3.2804.607.

* Display names have been replaced by real names associated with that particular Windows Live ID. This is a significant change, most probably associated with Messenger's social networking push. Some users however, have expressed concerns over the idea, with worries over privacy for those who choose not to publish their real identities.
o Microsoft MVP CookieRevisied has criticized the feature, stating: "This isn't about 'getting used to changes' or 'getting rid of the old and going forward in time', or even a 'personal taste of a feature' or whatever, this is all about privacy!..."

"A little over a year ago, we released an early preview of Google Voice, our web-based platform for managing your communications. We introduced one number to ring all your phones, voicemail that works like email, free calls and text messages to the U.S. and Canada, low-priced international calls and more—the only catch was you had to request and receive an invite to try it out. Today, after lots of testing and tweaking, we’re excited to open up Google Voice to the public, no invitation required..."

Facebook And Skype Become More Integrated

"Last week reports began surfacing that Facebook was now prompting users to invite their Skype friends to Facebook. Now, Facebook is testing deeper integration which enables Skype users to start calls, chat, and send files if their friends on the service. While we’ve received at least one report, we aren’t quite sure if this is a feature being tested by Facebook or if this something that is part of an upgraded Skype application.

We’re reaching out to Facebook for clarification but since it’s late I wouldn’t expect a response before tomorrow. Given that Facebook has an existing chat platform, and has even tested a video chat product, one has to wonder why Facebook would be the one behind this product. Also, the multiple occurrences of the Skype icon within Facebook’s product below makes it seem a little bit questionable..."

SkypeKitSkype yesterday announced SkypeKit SDK, a new set of software tools and APIs (application programming interfaces) that developers can use to port Skype to web-connected devices aside from mobile phones and computers.

SkypeKit is designed to work with a wide variety of chip sets, operating systems, and audio/video devices. Think of SkypeKit as a "headless" version of Skype--that is, it runs invisibly with no user display. That way, developers are free to surface and deliver Skype functionality through their own products' interfaces.

SkypeKit is currently in beta release. Starting June 23, develepoers will be able to sign up for the waiting list to receive an invitation to the SkypeKit Beta Program.

"Communicating by using an instant messaging (IM) program has some of the same security and privacy risks as e-mail, but there are a few dangers that are unique to IM.

1. Never open pictures, download files, or click links in messages from people you don't know. If they come from someone you do know, confirm with the sender that the message (and its attachments) is trustworthy. If it's not, close the instant message.

2. Be careful when you create a screen name. Each IM program asks you to create a screen name, which is similar to an e-mail address. Your screen name should not provide or allude to personal information. For example, use a nickname such as FootballFan instead of BaltimoreJenny..."
