Microsoft Apologizes for Three-Day Outlook.com Outage

I just love this paragraph (it made me chuckle because it’s so true and typical of most of M$ software):

“The company blamed this particular incident on a failure of the caching service that interfaces with devices using Exchange ActiveSync, including most smartphones. The failure caused these devices to receive an error and continuously try to connect to Microsoft’s service, which resulted in a flood of traffic that the company’s servers did not handle properly.”
