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 will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

    Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
    Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
    Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
    The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

    Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

    Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
    In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
    The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
    It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
