Microsoft Brings Enhanced Security Features, Large Attachments & an Uncluttered Inbox to Next Version of Hotmail

first_imgMicrosoft just announced the next version of Hotmail, which will bring a large number of new features to the world’s most popular email service. Hotmail’s 360 million users will soon get enhanced security features, a Gmail-like conversation view, automatic filters for status updates from social networks, integration with the new Microsoft Office Web Apps and numerous other new features that are meant to make using Hotmail safer and reduce the amount of clutter in Hotmail users’ inboxes.Email has ChangedAs Walter Harp, Microsoft’s director of product management with Windows Live, told us earlier today, this redesign of Hotmail evolved as Microsoft started to think about how email has changed over the last few years. According to Harp, the last major revolution in email was the arrival of Gmail in 2004. Since then, however, the way people use email has changed. Social network updates from sites like Facebook and LinkedIn now make up somewhere between 15 to 30% of all mail in Hotmail users’ inboxes. In addition, email users now send out billions of photos and documents. Microsoft alone stores over 15 billion office documents on Hotmail and its users send out close to 1.5 billion photos every month.

Hotmail users will now, for example, be able to send up to 10 GB of photos and documents in a single message. Instead of sending these messages as attachments, however, Hotmail will simply route these files to the sender’s Windows Live SkyDrive account (Microsoft’s free online storage service), where the recipients can access them through a link. Thanks to the new Office Web Apps, recipients will also be able to see and edit Office documents right in the browser.Less Clutter in Your Mailbox In order to make it easier for users to wade through lots of social network status updates and unclutter their Hotmail inbox, Microsoft is introducing a new feature called “1-click filters.” These filters will allow users to just see messages from services like Facebook and shipping updates from the USPS. Other new features that will help to keep Hotmail users’ inboxes organized include a new Gmail-like conversations view (which will be an opt-in feature and turned off by default), as well as the ability to quickly see all the emails from a given sender while reading an email from this sender. Hotmail users will also be able to just see all the new emails that contain photos.Microsoft has also partnered with a number of third-party services, including Hulu, YouTube, JustinTV, the USPS, SmugMug and Flickr to provide additional functionality through a feature called “active views.” This allows Microsoft to integrate some of the functionality of these sites directly into the emails. Other new features include Exchange ActiveSync push email for Hotmail – which means that you can now push Hotmail email and data from your Windows Live Calendar directly to the iPhone, for example – as well as a unified contact list for all Windows Live services and third-party services like Facebook and MySpace. Improved SecurityOn the security front, Microsoft is introducing full-session SSL encryption for all accounts and a feature that will identify and highlight trusted senders (like known banks and online stores) in order to prevent phishing scams. Microsoft has also managed to bring down the average number of spam emails in its users’ inboxes to only 4% (down from 35% in 2006).Another nifty new security feature is the introduction of a single-use code that allows users to log in from a public computer at an airport or coffee shop without having to fear that their passwords could be stolen. Users will receive these codes by SMS or through an alternate email account.Microsoft Wants to be #1 in the U.S.As Walter Harp pointed out when we talked to him today, Hotmail is the #1 email service in the world, but in the U.S., it is currently only the second-most used service after Yahoo Mail. With this new version of Hotmail, Microsoft hopes to be able to close this gap. Email, of course, tends to be a very sticky service and users aren’t likely to abandon Yahoo for Hotmail anytime soon. Thanks to today’s updates, however, chances are that many new users will choose Hotmail over Yahoo. In terms of functionality, however, the real competition for Hotmail isn’t Yahoo but Google. Google, after all, also offers integration with its online office suite and photo service. Unlike Google, however, Microsoft doesn’t plan to offer a small business version of Hotmail and prefers to steer people towards Microsoft Exchange and Outlook instead. Microsoft’s services – and especially the Office Web Apps – are competitive with Google’s services (and, in many respects, better). Thanks to the integration with SkyDrive and Office Web Apps, Hotmail now presents a very viable alternative to Gmail and it will be interesting to see if Microsoft will be able to capitalize on this. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Ham radio operators help reunite family

first_imgOn August 16, a few policemen arrived at the house of Vadamalai Raman in village Purandarai located in Villupuram district of Tamil Nadu with photographs of a patient who has been staying at the Bangaon Subdivisional Hospital in West Bengal for over two years. Vadamalai’s mother, Misiyammal, identified the person in the photographs without much difficulty. He was Janaki Raman, her son who went missing about 11 years ago.Speaking to The Hindu over telephone from her village Suguna, Janaki Raman’s sister-in-law could not hide the excitement the family felt at the prospect of finally reuniting with a close relative after more than a decade.She said her husband Vadamalai will leave for West Bengal on Tuesday to bring Janaki Raman back to his native village.Janaki Raman had remained in West Bengal for over a decade, mostly as a vagabond and then as an inpatient at the Bongaon Subdivisional Hospital. He spoke only Tamil and authorities at the state-run hospital had no idea about his antecedents. It was only after the hospital authorities involved ham radio operators (amateur radio operators) the breakthrough was made.“First, he would not speak. But we were certain that he was from south India. It took months to record his voice. Only then did we try to know what language he spoke and then contacted other ham radio operators in south India,” Ambarish Nag Biswas, secretary of the West Bengal Radio Club said.Bengaluru-based Manjunath. R, a member of the Indian Institute of Ham, found out that Janaki Raman was speaking in Tamil. He spoke to him over telephone, pretending to be a family member and learnt about his village and post office. Sankar Prasad Mahato, the medical superintendent of the hospital, said the patient’s condition was much better now and he was eager to return to his village.last_img read more

Porn addiction affects brain-like drug addiction, reveals study

first_imgPorn addiction triggers same brain activity in people as if they are on drugs, significant research reveals.People with compulsive sexual behaviour — an obsession with sexual thoughts, feelings or behaviour which they are unable to control — behave in the same way as patients with drug addictions, according to researchers from the University of Cambridge in Britain.”The patients in our trial were people who had substantial difficulties controlling their sexual behaviour and this was having significant consequences for them, affecting their lives and relationships,” explained Valerie Voon from the department of psychiatry at the University of Cambridge.In many ways, they show similarities in their behaviour to patients with drug addictions, he added.During the study funded by the Wellcome Trust, 19 participants were shown a series of short videos featuring either sexually explicit content or sports while their brain activity was monitored.The researchers found three brain regions — ventral striatum, dorsal anterior cingulate and amygdala — were more active in the brains of the people with compulsive sexual behaviour.These are the regions that are also particularly activated in drug addicts when shown drug stimuli.Patients with compulsive sexual behaviour showed higher levels of desire towards the sexually explicit videos.Excessive use of pornography is one of the main features identified in many people with compulsive sexual behaviour.Voon and colleagues also found a correlation between brain activity and age — the younger the patient, the greater the level of activity in the brain in response to pornography.advertisementAccording to Voon: “It’s important to note the findings could not be used to diagnose the condition or provide evidence that porn is inherently addictive.”The study appeared in the journal PLOS ONE.last_img read more
