Microsoft discontinues XBOX 360

Xbox-is-discontinuedXBox 360, the flagship game console of Microsoft, will no longer be manufactured by the company. The retirement of the popular game will allow the company to focus on other developments. XBox 360 was launched 10 years ago amidst fanfare because it was then the first ever such product from the software giant.

Though specific reasons have not been given for the cessation, it is believed that the firm would like to concentrate on its core business of office applications. It is speculated that the proliferation of games on hand held devices like mobile phones and tablets may have led to low sales with the XBox, hence the retirement.

Stores world wide will continue to sell existing stocks till they run out and Microsoft will support existing users.

FBI iPhone crack ruffles Apple’s SE release

The FBI has cracked an Apple iPhone in pursuit of solving a crime. Apple protested the reverse engineering efforts of the FBI but lost the case.  The  manipulation hurts Apple in no small way because it would adversely affect the Company’s reputation as a secure device manufacturer.

The action by the Government ruffles Apple’s celebration of the iPhone SE release which touts exceptional security. With this development, Apple will now first have to identity which vulnerability in their software allowed the crack, and secondly appease its customers who have always deemed the iPhone as beyond compromise.
