Windows 7 likely in 2010

Mary Jo Foley talks about the release date of Windows 7 in her latest blog. A lot of what she says makes good sense. Personally I can't see 7 arriving in 2009. I suspect the most likely scenario is a delay influenced release in mid-2010. I also can't see Windows 7 being massively different from Windows Vista. The new kernel, an enhanced security model and much closer ties to the Windows Live Suite will be the most notable differences but I suspect the UI and the experience in general will not change substantially. I look forward to seeing the first beta release in the last few months of 2008 and will be keeping close tabs on Windows 7 news as it becomes available.

XBox Live Dashboard Update Tomorrow!

I just logged into XBox Live for the first time in a while today and I've mail informing me that XBox live is going to be offline tomorrow for about 24 hours. This must be the big update that was announced at E3. The blades will soon be gone and we'll have the more modern interface. I liked the blades but I'm very excited about new interface. I'll post about the new look once i get a look at it hopefully on Tuesday.

Flickr For iOS: Could Not Communicate With Server Fix

I've seen multiple reports on Google from people trying to login to Flickr through iOS 7 Settings and receiving the 'Could not communicate with server' login failure. I changed phones last week and received the same error message this morning. The fix that worked for me is:1. Go to Flickr through a desktop browser.  2. Go to the your profile image in the top right and click Settings. 3. In Your Account select the Sharing & Extending tab. 4. Revoke the iOS related Account Links. 5. Login again on your iPhone through Settings and you should now have access.
I hope this helps.
