South Koreans are suiting Apple on iPhone location services en mass. Some about 27,000 cases have already been filed. They do not look indifferent to me.
It’s the accent. They’re sueting apples to make dumplings for Ivan’s (the restaurant chain) but making a mess. They’ve already shipped 27,000 cases of the poor dumplings. However, I guess they don’t look any different (to you, at least). Ivan may turn them down though.

Apologies for the typo, am not a native speaker. Point remains they are not indifferent.
No need to apologise - there's no shortage of native speakers on this forum whose English is considerably worse than yours, mon ami. Taking the pee out of foreigners' English has long been a British sport but doing the same to their fellow-countrymen is regarded as an insult

Microsoft's cloud services have been subject to an outage early Friday morning. Interrupted services include Office 365 -that is the cloud version of the popular Microsoft Office app-, Hotmail -Microsoft's on line mailer-, Skydrive -a file hosting service-, MSN etc.
Microsoft has announced they believe the cause of the problem has been a DNS failure, yet this is hardly convincing. For a failure of one DNS by itself -even if it happens to be an authoritative one- fails to disrupt the operation of the countless DNS servers available as part of the world wide web, many of which operate on a much higher level caching IP addresses.
Not to say, that in case microsoft has devised their entire cloud business depended on just one DNS, which apparently happens to not be failsafe, then this is very-very poor planning indeed. I am sorry, for what is really laughable to me, may be a source of problems for their customers. In any case it is too amateurish.
This was the second outage on microsoft's cloud within a month. Point is 'a big network is equivalent with big problems' which apparently even microsoft cannot cope with.
