微软是否会收回非正常渠道获得的 @live 帐号?

来自微软员工的问答电子邮件显示,他们计划收回非正常渠道注册的 @live.com,这意味着前些日子通过 4 次漏洞注册的帐户可能会被回收,时间大约是 3 周内,其实早在去年也有相关的消息传出,但微软一直没有下手。内含来往信件全文,信件中微软员工明确提到 3 周内回收帐户,用户有 3 周时间备份邮件日程数据和联系人。

至今为止,微软官方并未给出答复,LiveSino.net 将继续关注此次事件。

更新:上午 Belem 得到的消息是, 据微软内部最新的承诺, 所有 @live 账号将不会被删除. 这意味着对于绝大多数的 @live 来说都是安全的。LiveSino 将继续关注。

Thanks for your kind response.

Unfortunately, I’m not in control of that process. I was only asked to follow up on several account to provide you a polite notification.

Because we do not have public registration open for Live.com accounts yet, all Live.com accounts currently created are considered “test” accounts. Test accounts are scheduled to be deleted in approximately 3 weeks as a pre-release step prior to the official launch of Live Mail.

You can use this 3 week period to export your address book (Options >> Export Contacts) and redirect contacts. I’m very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Scott

Scott.Sxxxxxxx,

I’m very glad to receive your email.
If you want to know how I can get this account, please search the Internet and you find several bugs can be used before your official rollout.
In addition, there are a lot of friends and business partners in my friend list of this account. If you delect it, you will make a big trouble for me.
Thanks for regarding.

Thanks for your reply,

I’m very sorry for the misunderstanding. My intent is not to threaten and I trust your intent is also not to threaten. J

We simply haven’t released @Live.com addresses for public use yet. The good news is that the official release of @ Live.com email registration is in several months.

As part of that launch, we are looking at addresses that were ‘pre-registered’ typically through a registration bug where a query string value could be changed to the Live.com domain value. There were also a small number of accounts which were issued to internal Microsoft team members that worked on shipping Live Mail. Some of those team members work in our China development group which is why I inquired if you were a Microsoft employee.

Who says the Windows Live ID only can be registered by MS employee?
If you have any document to indicated it, please share it to me.
Or I will let others know how arbitrary and outrageous MS employee is.

Thanks

Are you a Microsoft employee?

I’m looking into how several accounts were created prior to the official rollout of @Live.com accounts.

Please respond by Friday or the account may be deleted.

Thanks,

Scott

微软以及 Ask.com 寻求搜索隐私保护

近日有报道说”微软于周 6 晚承诺请求相关产业发展全球隐私条例,并用来保护相关的搜索以及在线广告。”

微软以及 Ask.com 近日提议那些领先的搜索引擎商,在线广告公司,以及主张保护隐私的人们坐到一起开展一次积极的对话,以讨论由在线广告和搜索大量增加所带来的隐私问题。谈话的目的是希望各产业能够统一隐私的标准,并遵循这个标准。各公司 9 月也会相应升级他们的服务。

Ask.com 最近公布了 AskEraser,一个隐私设置选项,它能够保证不会遗留任何搜索记录,这成为了同行业中第一个吃螃蟹的。Google 也宣称将会改变用户隐私策略,虽然还不清楚究竟新策略是否真的有帮助

隐私策略-包括搜索公司得到怎样的私人信息,他们能保存多久,他们怎么处理这些信息,是一场艰难的战争。Google 已在搜索信息上建立了自己的王朝,但是对于微软以及其他业者,或许用户隐私保护,可以作为追赶 Google 的一个契机。(by kip kniskern)

微软网站分析工具 Gatineau 截图欣赏

之前我们提到代号“Gatineau”,微软站点统计服务将在夏季末推出,如今截图已经泄漏在网上了,并且简单提到了一下 Gatineau 的功能。知情人士表示此服务很快将开始 Alpha 测试,但具体日期不可公开。

Gatineau 和 Google Analytics 功能相当类似,和 Google Analytics 一样,Gatineau 整合了微软自家的adCenter ,但 Gatineau 有一些非常“特殊的”数据,如:访客性别、年龄等一些其他服务所没有的数据。

说明:访客性别、年龄等特殊数据是根据访问者的 Windows Live ID 匿名统计的。不知微软是否因此被卷入隐私官司?

Windows Live Spaces 更新后仍不可用?这里有解决方法!

我们的新朋友 Belem,他是北京的 Windows Live Spaces MVP(最有价值专家),提醒了我们关于如何解决部分用户在 Spaces 更新后出现的小问题。根据 Belem 的信息,这是因为 Windows Media Player 模块被设置为了“不可见”。

目前为止任何在 Spaces 部署更新之前使用 Windows Media Player 模块并且设置为“不可见”的用户的空间现在都是不可用的,但这里有非常简单的解决方法:

Windows Live Spaces 更新后仍不可用?这里有解决方法!

为了使你的空间恢复,按照以下步骤:

0. 登录 Windows Live 帐号

1. 访问”http://<你的地址>.spaces.live.com/?_c=WMP ” (没有括号,插入你的空间地址)

2. 设置”显示模式”为全部– 不要设置为不可见

3. 保存

Belem 说这个 bug 会很快修复,不过到现在还只能通过此方法恢复 Windows Live Spaces。

MGX 会议上的 Windows Live 信息链接

在人们被从MGX(Microsoft’s Global Exchange )会议中泄漏的一个PowerPoint 吸引的时候(在会议上给出了Windows 7 发布的暂定期限), 大家可能错过了一些 Windows Live 的信息,但这不要紧,这里有一些博客、文章吸引了我们,这些也是这次会议中唯一透露的 Windows Live 信息

  • Ray Ozzie 给出了一份主题,并且再次告诉大家他“了解的什么叫软件+服务公司”:Windows Live核心、漫游配置文件、数据中心,这些他讲过或还没讲过的东西,都还将继续。(相关链接
  • 数据中心!我们之前提过数据中心的重要性? (相关链接
  • Windows Live 会议现场爆满。 相关人员必须做好准备。(相关链接
  • Windows Live 的更多关注。 (相关链接

在会议上多次提到软件+服务的模式,听起来接下来将发布的 Windows Live 服务+软件越来越使人兴奋了;很遗憾没人泄漏出一份关于 Live Search 2.0 的 PowerPoint。共同期待 Ozzie 在本周晚些时候的经济分析师会议上的精彩演讲吧。
