Microsoft Reportedly Replacing Outlook.com With Office 365

Microsoft might be thinking about replacing the technology and user interface of Outlook.com with Office 365 if a new report is to be believed. Apparently the company will be migrating all Outlook.com users to Office 365 at some point later this year. Office 365 brings other services as well which include Outlook Web Access.

The question that surely must be on everyone’s mind is that why is Microsoft doing this? According to The Verge the reason behind this migration is to make sure that Microsoft Outlook, Exchange and Office 365 platforms are perfectly aligned.

In favor of keeping things consistent Microsoft is going to go ahead and add the consumer Outlook.com to the mix as well.

There has been speculation previously about impending major user interface changes for Outlook.com, Microsoft’s general manager of Office Apps Rob Lefferts suspected that much.

It’s worth nothing that Microsoft hasn’t updated its consumer email service for quite a few months and it even showed the door to Google and Facebook chat integration possibly due to simplify the migration process.

As to what user interface changes might be made, it’s likely that the Outlook Web App interface used on Office 365 could be front and center.

There’s no word as yet on exactly when Microsoft plans to migrate all users from Outlook.com to Office 365.

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

The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "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.
