Google fixes Calendar glitch

The problem prevented many users from logging into their accounts

Google has fixed a problem that prevented a significant number of users from logging into their Calendar accounts.

Although Google first acknowledged the problem around 11 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time on Wednesday, users began logging complaints in the official Calendar discussion forum on Tuesday.

Google suggested that to work around the problem, users should clear their browser cookies or try signing out and then back in to their accounts. The issue was fixed by 12:15 p.m.

The problem didn't affect organizations that use Calendar as part of the Google Apps Premier hosted collaboration and communication suite, which costs US$50 per user per year, includes IT controls and comes with a 99.9 percent uptime guarantee.

Other Google services hit with bugs in recent days included the Blogger blog hosting and publishing service, the App Engine application development and hosting platform, and the Postini e-mail security and archiving suite.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
