Wave 3 urls start resolving, services betas coming soon

Ah its almost that time of the year, when we start posting 5 times a day with more screenshots than you can shake a stick at. Just to wet the appetite, the url for the Windows Live People service now works (people.live.com). Unfortunately if you’re not on the Hotmail dogfood servers, all you’ll see is your Hotmail inbox. Yes there is a Wave 3 Hotmail update, which should please a lot of people ๐Ÿ™‚

Also of note is that profile.live.com now redirects to Spaces (photos.live.com has done for a few releases now).

One final point to make, is that if you signed into Windows Live Video Messages to try it out, you’ll have broken your Windows Live Calendar. If you try and sign in now, you’ll see an error message: “Windows Live Calendar wasn’t able to complete this request.” We’ve heard that it is a known issue, so it should get fixed in the near future. Maybe at the same time as a Wave 3 calendar update? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, if you have any tips over the next month or so remember we have a dedicated tips line: tips [at] liveside dot net.

Fun times ahead!
