Looks like Microsoft needs to be a little more cautious of who they hire. It turns out one of their employees has a big mouth and accidentally leaked the company's secret plans for Live Search updates ahead of schedule.

The details weren't supposed to be released until next week, but program manager Akram Hussein couldn't help sharing ahead of schedule on his personal blog. The new changes to Live Search "include improvements in several specific types of search queries, notably in video search and in searches for products." They will include products details and reviews, a new celebrity search which ranks stars by "celebrity xRank," and "an improved video search that allows a motion preview of a video search result."
