“By a substantial margin, this is the largest investment Microsoft has made in Greece in the 28 years we have been operating here,” President Brad Smith said, speaking at the New Acropolis Museum in Greece.

“In part, this reflects confidence that our world-leading data-center technology can help enable innovation and growth across Greece’s economy.”

Greece’s data centers will join the company’s current 63-region global cloud infrastructure network. The network makes Microsoft Azure cloud services available in more than 140 countries.

MI AG warns of Apple, Microsoft tech support scam

AG Dana Nessel says scammers may be posing as employees and offering tech support for companies like Apple and Microsoft.

LANSING, Mich — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is warning the public about recent Apple iPhone and tech support scams. 

According to the attorney general’s office, there hasn’t been an uptick in complains as of late, but Michiganders should remain cautious. 

Nessel said that scammers may pose as employees offering tech support for major companies like Apple or Microsoft. 

A Michigan woman was reportedly contacted by a scammer who told her that her mobile device required a security update and that he could assist with the process. The woman followed the caller’s instructions and unknowingly gave him remote access to her phone, and he transferred $1,000 from her bank account.

The tech giant made the announcement in a blog post this week.

GOOGLE IS FIXING THIS KEY FEATURE ON CHROME BECAUSE OF A SECURITY ‘RISK’

Internet Explorer is still popular, though. While Chrome rules – with around a 70% market share – Internet Explorer 11 still has a larger share of the market than Apple’s Safari, according to NetApplications.

But that share will inevitably shrink as Microsoft prepares to end critical support
