Microsoft gets an earful as Office for Mac 2016 users amp ire over crashes

They’re restless.

Users of Microsoft’s Office for Mac 2016 who upgraded to Apple’s OS X 10.11, aka El Capitan, have become increasingly frustrated by repeated crashes of the Office applications, angrily denouncing Microsoft, and to a lesser extent, Apple, on the former’s support forum.

“It’s called Office ‘2016’ because that’s the expected date it ‘might’ work, although when in 2016 is not clear, assuming we are using the Gregorian calendar!” wrote someone identified only as “bluedolphin” in a Tuesday message on the longest thread dedicated to the crash issue.

Sony PS4 price drops to $350 in the US, $429 in Canada

Starting October 9, Sony is dropping the official retail price of the PlayStation 4 in the US to $349 from $399, and in Canada to CAD 429 from CAD 449. The price drops means that, in the US at least, the PS4 now costs the same as an Xbox One. The announcement follows a similar price drop in Japan earlier this month.

There’s no word yet from Sony on whether the UK or Europe will get their own price drop, other than “we have nothing to announce at this time.” Currently the PS4 currently costs £349 in the UK and €399 in Europe. If a price drop does happen, it’s likely that Sony will announce it at its press conference at Paris Games Show later this month. The new UK price could be as low as £299, to match the Xbox One, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a smaller drop—to £329 or thereabouts.
