Security for virtualized datacentres

Microsoft has now slotted MySpace updates into its Outlook application.

The company confirmed the move yesterday, after it announced the deal as part of its Outlook Social Connector (OSC) release last month.

"MySpace for Outlook enables you to view activity updates for friends and colleagues in the People Pane, synchronise your MySpace contact list to your Outlook contacts, and get one-click access to profiles," said Microsoft program manager Michael Affronti.

Redmond first announced OSC in November 2009 when it released a beta of the Office 2010 suite.

In February Microsoft inked deals with LinkedIn, MySpace and Facebook, allowing the Web 2.0 outfits to embed their tech in the software giant’s OSC, which will feature in the Office 2010 mail client.

On the subject of which, Affronti said anyone running the Outlook 2010 beta will need to update the OSC component before hooking their email up to the Web2.0rhea sufferers' hotline. ®
