Mailbox is a hot new iOS email client app. Dropbox is one of the most popular consumer cloud storage and sharing tools around. Now, the former is joining the latter, which could make for some interesting cross-pollination. What’s notable about this merging of minds is that Mailbox is a brand new baby app, having launched just a few weeks ago, but there’s already a long line of people on the wait list to actually receive it. According to the company, it has grown by a factor of 2,000 since its launch. Here’s a video showing how Mailbox works. (No one will blame you if you tap your... Read more...
Some users of Microsoft's recently minted Outlook.com and its ancient Hotmail services were having a bear of a time accessing their email messages the last couple of days due to an outage. The service disruption also affected SkyDrive, Microsoft's online storage scheme, though a fix was doled out in a matter of hours. Hotmail and Outlook.com users started complaining about not being able to access their emails on Tuesday, March 12th, building in up frustration after several hours rolled by without a fix in sight. That's not to say Microsoft's engineers were sitting on their thumbs or asleep at... Read more...
Google's privacy practices have come under fire in the past six months; the company was fined for continuing to track Safari users after previously promising not to do so. Last fall, Microsoft launched a campaign against Google's shopping search, informing users that Google no longer displayed relevant data, but ranked results by what advertisers were willing to pay to be in the top spot. Now, Redmond is expanding the claim to Gmail and informing users that they've been "Scroogled." "If you’re a Gmail user, Google scans all of your sent and received messages, extracts keywords that they think... Read more...
Researchers with Kaspersky Labs have released information on a new botnet they've discovered that dwarfs any previous cyber-espionage efforts as far as its size, scope, and complexity. The new network, dubbed Red October, has sunk its hooks into systems worldwide. The degree of penetration varies from state to state -- in the United States, the leaks were apparently confined to diplomatic offices and embassies, while in Russia, intrusions were picked up in military installations, embassies, nuclear power plants, and in research institutions. Elements of the Red October network have apparently been... Read more...
Microsoft launched Outlook.com in July. In just four short months, the company has enjoyed tremendous success with the site. In addition to being named to Time Magazine's 50 Best Websites of 2012, the site has also reached over 25 million users. Microsoft discovered about a third of those 25 million users are active Gmail users who are trying Outlook.com for the first time. Microsoft was intrigued by this figure, so the company hired a research firm to recruit hundreds of Gmail users to use Outlook.com. Interestingly enough, Microsoft claims 4 out of 5 of these Gmail users said they would switch... Read more...
Let’s face it; your inbox is cluttered, and even if spam filters are keeping out almost of all the junk emails, there’s seemingly no end to emails that are a low priority for you. Between daily deals from coupon sites; hot sales from the stores you frequent; emails from groups you subscribe to; notifications from social media sites such Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pinterest; and other miscellany, the emails you really want to see—your dad asking if you want to go to the game this weekend, a meeting invitation from your boss, or your friend getting back to you about the recipe you...

Microsoft Outlook has been the industry standard for desktop email for years, and although that likely isn’t changing any time soon—see the Outlook 2013 Preview as evidence—Microsoft believes that leveraging the incredible power of the cloud to provide powerful web-based email is just as if not more important. After starting from scratch, Microsoft has built Outlook.com, which offers free web-based email packed with features designed to streamline the email experience; allow users to more easily connect with contacts from social networks; use SkyDrive to share images and create,...

It's time for a change, according to today's post on the Microsoft Outlook blog, and that change is a new personal email service that will eventually replace Hotmail. The Outlook.com Preview is designed to better incorporate social networking than old-school email services have done in the past. And, as you might expect, it's going to play well with Windows 8. If you have a Microsoft Account (formerly Windows Live ID), you can sign in right now and take it for a spin. If you don't, you can sign up for one (it's free) at the Outlook.com login page. The service has a cleaner interface than Hotmail... Read more...
