Now back to my subject, there I found this picture:
Internet-based personal services to bring together your digital world
Going to live.com I found this definition:
Windows Live brings your online world together and helps you manage your social network.
Sounds good. But why the only services listed there are Search, Mail, Spaces, OneCare, Favorites (sic), MSN? Where are all the other Live services? Why aren't all these new exciting services listed?
Where are the links to Live Local, Maps, Skydrive, Messenger and dozens of other services? Since you're "bringing together", can't your guys just create an updated page with all the services linked from there? Or is it too hard even for Microsoft to keep track of what's being developed?
On another note, why Microsoft insists that browsers using English (New Zealand) shouldn't see the services that English (Australia) or English (US) see? Even when I try to post a feedback on a service I am using I get an error message saying that English (New Zealand) is not a supported language. How is the English (New Zealand) different from English (Australia) or English (United Kingdom) (sheep jokes aside)?
Microsoft, you should make sure Windows Live is bringing together digital content, not splicing it. You should stop doing this artficial "locale"-based language market separation thing that is not real.
Don't take me wrong, I use Live services - check geekzonemail.com for example (free e-mail accounts for anyone!) - but it is hard to find things and is even harder to explain to your parents what Live does.
