News over the weekend

It's the Labor Day Holiday here in the US, and everyone is pretty much gone for the three day weekend, but it gives us some time to catch up on some news.

As noted elsewhere, Windows Live Search has upgraded, now featuring QnA and Video Search tabs on the taskbar. Click on "More" to add Video, Academic, Products, and Feeds (all beta) tabs on your Windows Live Search bar.

Speaking of QnA, Dare points out that they've added the Friends list to their contact control. Invite a friend or a Messenger contact from within QnA, or Spaces, or Messenger.

Labor Day marks the end of summer, and the beginning of a busy fall season for Windows Live. Sanaz has been drinking coffee, so you know that something's up with Live.com soon. Coming too, a new Messenger beta (8.1), Live Mail M8, the possibility of @live.com and @windowslive.com addresses being finally available, more from Live Mail Desktop, and even some surprises. Hey everybody gets their 15 minutes of fame, right?

Oh, and we'll even have some announcements here at LiveSide. Time to pack up the beach towels and the suntan lotion and get back to work!

In the meantime, enjoy the end of summer, everyone (In the Northern Hemisphere, that is!)
