Microsoft: Zune exceeds targets, sells 1m, still work to be done

Microsoft: Zune exceeds targets, sells 1m, still work to be done

Personally I find it difficult to believe that the Zune was only released last November, but I guess that's the side-effect of big rumour run-up periods.  Anyway, Microsoft set themselves the goal of selling one million of the little buggers in six months, and according to Entertainment and Devices Decision President Robbie Back they've actually done it already.

While the information provide by Engadget and Gizmodo are still rumors and unconfirmed, it's very likely and credible that the image below is indeed the Microsoft Zune (it's possible that the device also went by the code name Argo.

Expired SSL certificate causes Microsoft Azure outages

It looks like Microsoft has had its fair share of problems this week. Microsoft Azure, a cloud-based computer platform, suffered from outages yesterday beginning at 4:00 P.M. Eastern Standard Time. Though people could assume that it's because of the recent cyber attack Microsoft experienced, it unfortunately is just a case of a minor oversight. According to Microsoft, the outage that affected Azure was due to something as minor as an expired SSL certificate.

Surface Detail: Microsoft’s Tablets Are Too Big To Fail

Inevitable branch-out or needless dilution; mounting desperation or a prelude to a Nokia takeover. Surface struck chords with the Windows faithful and rang warning bells among skeptics, with the analysis as deep as Microsoft's launch details were shallow. Yet one thing's clear even at this early stage. No matter whether block-wrapping queues mark Surface's in-store arrival, or if sales of the tablet make Zune look like a blockbuster, Microsoft will be crowing its legacy.

Microsoft brand Windows 8 tablet must be developer-only

Microsoft brand Windows 8 tablet must be developer-only

Next week on Monday it'll be time for us to head to Los Angeles and see Microsoft introduce something big that they hope will come across as a game-changer - and it might be a tablet. As we heard earlier today, sources familiar with the matter have let the world know that Microsoft may be re-entering the world they gave up on with the Zune - but instead of a tiny media player, they'll be pushing their software on a larger display first and foremost. While it's important that Microsoft prove that it can present a device that runs the Windows 8 or Windows RT software exactly as they want it to, such a device will certainly fail unless it's released much in the same way Google releases their Nexus line of smartphones (and also soon tablets, ironically enough).
