Microsoft Outlook Outage Reported

Microsoft Outlook Outage Reported

If you are an online service provider and your service happens to undergo an outage, it would definitely make many people unhappy. Of course, if your service happens to be widely used but not indispensable, then it would irritate a wide percentage of folks, but it is not really a life or death issue. However, when you have a service like Outlook from Microsoft and it happens to be down, then you’re in a quite a bit of a spot, no? Microsoft is already well aware of the situation and they have noted on the Updates segment in their status page, “We’re working on the problem and will provide an update by August 14 11:00 AM. Thank you for your patience.”

I guess if Outlook is having issues, that would also mean services such as Hotmail, Messenger and SkyDrive will not be up and running without glitches, either. What do you think could have caused this? Hardware issues or is it some sort of software compromise somewhere? One thing is for sure though, it would be best if Microsoft’s engineers are able to figure out just what is happening at the moment and sort everything out as soon as possible so that the world can carry on as it used to be.

    Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

    Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


    Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

    Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

    After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli.

"Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
