Cloud

+ - Cloud provider Livedrive has critically failed leaving users without access->

Submitted by Overzeetop
Overzeetop (214511) writes "For three days, Livedrive has been offline, denying access to users files except through their one-file-at-a-time web interface. The support forum, which is limited to registered users only and is submission moderated, has had no posts since late February 23rd, just before the first major service error occurred. Since the service went offline on March 6th, there have been no status updates except to indicate a new date on the status page. Will this service interruption finally kill off the UK-based cloud service provider, which has been losing £1,000,000 a year?"

+ - Digital versions of popular books to be delayed->

Submitted by Overzeetop
Overzeetop (214511) writes "Simon and Schuster and Hachette have recently announced that they will delay e-book releases by up to 4 months. This comes on the heels of literary agent recommending such a plan just days prior. This seems like a potential stumbling block for people who are considering picking up an e-reader this holiday season. Will Amazon or Barns and Noble consider playing hardball with the publishers to get the electronic versions released earlier?"

Communications

+ - Non-Outlook mobile contact and calendar software?

Submitted by Overzeetop
Overzeetop (214511) writes "What solutions are there for non-Outlook based calendaring and contact software that can be used on both a Windows desktop and a Windows Mobile device? I need shared contacts and calendaring with others in my small office, and would like to take that "on the road" with my new (yet to be purchased) pda/phone. I really don't want to go to Exchange server. Is there something that will work on both the desktop and a mobile device that doesn't use the Outlook database?"
