"Apple Watch support spotted hiding out in iOS 8.2 beta"

This has been the case since Beta 1, as the idea of 8.2 is support for the Watchkit as specified in the release notes since the start.

Re: A Youtube supported young sweary woman from essex?

She's not supported by YouTube. She's supported by her partnering company.

She's not really affiliated with YouTube and thus she's allowed to have an opinion on their flustercuckery.

Service restored for Exchange users... apparently.

Maybe others, too? Hurrah for DNS

DNS Issues

Been speaking to Microsoft Support about this.

The reason is DNS issues;

Microsoft engineers are troubleshooting DNS servers to mitigate the issue affecting some users ability to connect using the Outlook client. Meanwhile the switching of DNS provider continues to be a viable workaround. Next update will be provided at 3:00 PM UTC.

11 Jul 2013 12:46 Service interruption Microsoft exchange engineers have confirmed that the O365 Exchange service is healthy at this time. We believe that the issue is caused by a faulty external DNS. Customers are reporting that switching DNS provider is resolving the issue. Customers currently experiencing problems connecting to the service can try to switch to another DNS provider such as OpenDNS(208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) or Dnsadvantage(156.154.70.1 and 156.154.71.1). Next update will be provided at 2:00 PM UTC.

Microsoft network engineers are continuing to troubleshoot DNS servers to mitigate the issue affecting some users ability to connect using the Outlook client. Meanwhile the switching of DNS provider might be a viable workaround and Outlook Web Access continues to work without issue. Next update will be provided at 4:00 PM UTC.

Hurrah...
