The issues started around 3:30PM ET, and Microsoft quickly confirmed they were affecting users worldwide. This is the first major Microsoft Teams outage since the service went down back in September, alongside other Microsoft 365 services like Office 365 and Outlook. Microsoft also blamed its previous outage on a configuration change.
Fortnite and Apple have been locked in legal battle since August
The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority has launched an investigation into whether Apple’s terms for app developers are anti-competitive.
It follows a series of complaints, including a high-profile one from Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite.
Some developers are unhappy that they are forced to distribute apps to iPhones and iPads via the App Store, and the commission Apple takes.
Apple said its terms were “fair and equal”.
Trump was temporarily suspended in January after encouraging supporters to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, just before a violent attack on the US Capitol. Unlike similar suspensions on Twitter and Facebook, however, his YouTube channel suspension was described as temporary. In a new interview with the head of the Atlantic Council think tank, Wojcicki offered a more concrete description of how — although not precisely when — Trump could return.
“The channel remains suspended due to the risk of incitement to violence,” Wojcicki said. “Given the warnings by the Capitol Police yesterday about a potential attack today, I think it’s pretty clear that that elevated violence risk still remains. However, I do want to confirm that we will lift the suspension of the channel. We will lift the suspension of the Donald Trump channel when we determine that the risk of violence has decreased. That’s per our policies, that’s how our three strikes system works. But when the channel is reinstated, it will be subject to the same policies that every other channel follows.”
Facebook and Google argued it “fundamentally” misunderstands how the internet works.
