Microsoft is having trouble updating machines to Windows RT 8.1. The company has taken the update offline, preventing people from upgrading their RT devices. In a statement published on Microsoft’s support forms, the company says it is “investigating a situation affecting a limited number of users updating their Windows RT devices to Windows RT 8.1. As a result, we have temporarily removed the Windows RT 8.1 update from the Windows Store.” Microsoft hasn’t specified what the issue is, but a number of reports suggest that a problem that has causeed some machines to have their boot data damaged during the update is to blame. Affected machines are unusable until repaired using a recovery drive. There’s no word how long the update will be…
When Microsoft acquired Nokia’s devices and services business, it left the Here maps platform behind. However, that doesn’t mean it’s been abandoned. In fact, the Finnish company announced today that the mapping service will receive an update that will allow for incremental updates to offline maps. This means that whenever there’s an update to only a portion of a map, users can download just that part instead of the whole map all over again. This should hopefully lead to less data consumed and a faster upgrade overall. Nokia is rolling out the update starting today for all Windows Phone 8 devices that have the latest firmware. No word yet on whether Here will be updated for Android and iOS, but seeing as the company just signed over a huge part of their business to Microsoft, we’re not surprised they’re giving first dibs to the OS from Redmond.

The US federal government ceased most operations just after midnight on October 1st, 2013, as a divided Congress failed to reach a compromise for continued funding. NASA, the Department of Health and Human services, and other hi-tech agencies are largely frozen until further notice, except for critical services. With the Republican-controlled House of Representatives holding fast in their attempt to block funding for the President’s health care reform effort, no clear end is in sight for the first full government shutdown in 17 years. Follow the effects here.
