Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac Sets Record

Microsoft has claimed that Office 2008 for the Mac has been one of the best launches yet and sales continue to outstrip the any version in the last 19 years. I'm not doubting that the Office suite is a massive success in it's own right but I wonder how much of the improved sales are due to Windows users moving over to the Mac and looking for the familiar on that platform. A more important reason is probably due to companies running mostly Windows machines with Office installed. People who buy Mac's will look for the Microsoft Office suite to give them as easy a life as possible when it comes to working on documents at home. Perhaps Microsoft should look to moving some other software onto the Mac, it seems like a mostly untaped market. Either way though it's nice to see Microsoft products thriving on OSX.

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.
