    Microsoft Outlook issue fixed

    Microsoft says that its Outlook email services have been fully restored, following problems which lasted several hours. Many Outlook users were unable to send email or access their accounts. Hundreds from around Europe commented on the website Downdetector that they had been affected by the problem – many since Monday morning. One common issue seemed to be that sent emails remained in the drafts folder and were not delivered to recipients. On its website, Microsoft said the service dropped “unexpectedly” and it was working on a fix. Not all account holders were affected. BBC Microsoft has had outages before I think if this was Gmail it would have made more news.
  • Not all journeys have a destination. Whether browsing the web or looking for answers, the latest update to the Google app on iOS helps you keep exploring. Starting today, while you’re reading a webpage on the Google app for iOS, you’ll see suggestions for related content when you pull up the bottom of the page—no need to type anything into the search box to learn more. Suppose you’ve just finished reading an introductory article about the Mars rover. When you start scrolling back up, you’ll see additional articles on this topic that may interest you, like upcoming Mars missions or an in-depth story about the rover exploring a gully that might’ve contained water. Alternatively, if you’re reading a recipe for roasting shishito peppers, you’ll be able to jump straight to other ways to prepare them, such as grilling them, with a single tap. Google Google really does put together a great app for iOS despite being a competitive platform.

  • Technology has taken a giant leap since the beginning of this century allowing thousands of concurrent transactions to be taken place over the web. Zillions of data is being transferred and received thanks to the development of cutting-edge technologies. While reams of data are being generated due to these transactions, the companies are having a hard time protecting them. Security companies are under constant pressure to develop and upgrade their technologies that can prevent the firms from malware attacks. That is why, stalwarts in e-learning like Intellipaat are providing focused learning on security aspects especially in areas like Data Science. About 230,000 computers got infected across 150 countries when WannaCry hit the windows based machines in May 2017 The cost of damage incurred by cyber crime will reach up to $6 trillion per annum by 2021 99% of the computers are threat prone as the software like Java, Oracle, and Adobe which give full access to the hackers with just one click. The funniest part is that these malware developers are equipped with advanced technologies and tools which the normal world has never heard of. On one hand where Data Science and Artificial Intelligence is one of the most talked about term in the tech industry, the risk of ransomwares penetrating through the security walls of organizations has created severe threat. Artificial Intelligence is already in limelight for eating up the employment in future. However the question is, can artificial intelligence algorithms protect our data? Popular Cyber attacks and malwares of 2017 MyDoom is considered to be the fastest and the most expensive virus which caused the damage costing $38.5 billion in Russia in the year 2004. It has only been seven months and we are already being attacked by loads malwares from every direction possible. Ransomwares trapped the computer...
  • Do you want to create a product development lifecycle that features structured processes, reduces the risk of error and is repeatable? If so, you might want to consider investing in a BOM (bill of materials) management tool. This happens to be a great step in the right direction. However, it is not necessarily easy to find the right solution for your business. Therefore, below is a compilation of important features, details and components that might be of help when you decide to when decide to manage your BOM. The cost It is important for any business that wants to introduce new software into the product development lifecycle to consider the cost. Most times, would-be buyers are scared away by the assumed high cost of traditional enterprise software. In some cases this could be true, but you need to factor in the Return On Investment (ROI) potential for reduced scrap and higher quality software. For instance, Excel which might seem like an easy and low cost option does not offer most of the key features that make BOM management tools shine. It is evident that the cost of Excel user licenses, might be lower but this will end up costing you more money in errors, rework and lost time. Visibility When it comes to choosing the right BOM management tools consider the ones that can recalculate the totals for weight values or costs. These will enable you to notice when a change will have a dramatic effect as soon as possible. When there is no visibility, a new assembly might end up adding too much weight to a piece of lightweight technology.  In turn, this will force the manufacturer to go back and rework in order to find a solution. Security Security is one of the main key features you should...
