Amazon’s AWS S3 outage impacted Apple’s services
March 21, 2017 4:10 pm|Comments (0)

Yesterday afternoon, Amazon Web Services (AWS) experienced a significant and prolonged outage that brought a number of popular websites and services down. While Amazon is more readily known for its online retail business, the company’s cloud services division has quickly become a huge money maker for the Jeff Bezos-led company. What’s more, AWS provides the backbone for many well-known sites, including Netflix and Quora.

“We are investigating increased error rates for Amazon S3 requests in the US-EAST-1 Region,” Amazon said yesterday amidst a flurry of confusion and frustration.

The problem was eventually resolved, but not before a number of services from Apple were affected. For a brief while yesterday, iOS users experienced difficulties accessing the App Store, Apple Music, iCloud backups, iWork and other cloud-based services.

Amazon is sitting pretty on top of the smart home with its Alexa voice-controlled Echo devices, and Google will close in later this year with its own Home assistant device. But what about Apple?

While iOS 10’s much-needed Home app for controlling all your HomeKit-compatible smart home devices is a step in the right direction, the company may need an Echo rival of its own.

Apple is reportedly working on an Echo-like smart home device according to Bloomberg

Affinity Photo was Apple’s 2015 App of the Year — and it’s headed to Windows

Affinity Photo is easily the closest thing to Photoshop that’s not made by Adobe. Until recently, it was also only available to Apple users. But, that all changed with a short teaser and a quick press release. Serif Ltd., announced that it was bringing the much-loved photo editing application to an entirely new operating system — Windows.

It’s also the proud recipient of an Apple…

The Apple App Store has long enjoyed a sterling reputation for screening out malware. But last weekend, the company pulled apps infected with XcodeGhost malware from the Chinese Apple App Store — infected apps that had apparently been created with a counterfeit version of Apple’s Xcode IDE by unsuspecting developers.

As a precaution, Apple emailed its developers on Tuesday, recommending that they validate their installed version of Xcode using a simple procedure to ensure it wasn’t a hacked version. The email also contained a reminder to “always download Xcode directly from the Mac App Store, or from the Apple Developer website, and leave Gatekeeper enabled on all your systems to protect against tampered software.”
