If an invitation provided to Joystiq by several tipsters is accurate, Microsoft will soon begin the "Xbox Live and Kinect Beta Program." Several readers claim to have received the invitation via Microsoft Connect, a Microsoft service used to gather customer feedback on its products. The invitation itself includes little information about the program, though it notes that participants will be provided with "a unique opportunity to see pre-release software."

It also notes that an "audio change" in said software will not allow participants to use individual or party chat with anyone that is not part of the preview program. This could indicate that participants will be trying out the new Kinect dashboard seen at E3, which featured a new video chat application.

The email address attached to the invites appears to be valid, and it's worth pointing out that Microsoft has used Connect in the past, notably before it launched the NXE. Microsoft has yet to respond to Joystiq's inquiries into the validity of the invitation.

Industry Focus:  Jack Frost Design is all about business and not necessarily about a specific industry. After 40+ years in business JFD has touched corporations, medium size businesses and some small business entities. No matter what industry you are in delivering a successful business initiative requires a strong command of four key business skills:•Business Operations: a solid understanding of workflow process and ROI (return on investment).•Marketing: the ability to identify and reach a target market with an effectively motivating message.•Technology: the technical skills to harness the most effective technologies for business process automation.•Branding: the ability to encapsulate all of the above factors within a unified vision that resonates with the target customer and builds loyalty.Because it only takes weakness in one of these areas to undermine what would have otherwise been a successful enterprise, Jack Frost Design has taken the unusual step of including each of these areas of expertise in a single company. It a unique approach. It has been successful for 40+ years.
