iTunes Really Is A Pain

Just a quick note to back up Paul Thurrott when he posted a couple of days ago regarding iTunes dragging down his Windows Vista reliability score, posted here. I checked mine today and it's sitting at 5.9! That's dreadful! Strangely there are only two applications that appear on the list and here's another interesting point the reliability was at 9.1 on the day before I installed iTunes. All the red X's are linked to Outlook Sync Client failures or to iTunes failures. Every single one! For those wondering the Outlook failures only occurred when I was trying to sync MobileMe with my Outlook contact list. I'm not anti-Apple, not by any means, but this recent launch has not been good to Apple's Windows customers and as a user I'm just voicing my displeasure over it all.

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.
