The future of my.live.com in the face of bing.com RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Let's face it My.live.com has been in limbo for some time, not getting an update to a Wave 3 header and being removed from the Live.com home page, it isn't even linked from any Windows Live properties, AFAIK. Aside from this forum and regular, but identical, customer surveys its been quiet.

    Now along comes bing.com, a new hope for MSFT search, and I'm looking forward to it. The brand seperation was needed between search (Live.com/Bing) and cloud services (Windows Live).

    But where does this leave My.live.com? Will it be My.bing.com? Is it a search product or a Windows Live product? Does it even have a future?

    I hope so. I use it everyday and treat it as my morning newspaper. I feel like it should be a Windows Live product, and should have some kind of future intergration with Home.live.com, but that's just my opinion. Even if it stays as My.live.com I wish it would get a Wave 3 header.

    What are the other opinions here? My.bing.com anyone? Of course MS official comment alwasy welcome :)

  • Today my my.live.account ceased to pull any information from the Live/MSN services it used to (stocks, weather, news) ... the other, RSS-based feeds (NetFlix, USA today, etc.) all still work.  I'd be happy to go to a different URL if it would work.  Any thoughts?

  • FWIW, whatever was happening with my account yesterday seems to have been a temporary glitch; it's working again this morning.

    But I'd still be happy to update to homepage to my.bing.com if that's the plan...

  • my.live.com is unusable this morning.  Simply going to the main page gives me the following errors:
