A Facebook logo on an Ipad is reflected among source code on the LCD screen of a computer in this photo illustrationBy Eric Auchard FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Access to Facebook , the world's largest social network, and its Instagram photo-sharing site, were blocked around the world for up to an hour on Tuesday, which the company said later was due to an internal fault and not an outside attack. The outage at Facebook, which started around 0600 GMT, appeared to spill over and temporarily slow or block traffic to other major Internet sites, according to web and mobile user reports from around the globe. A hacker group associated with other recent high-profile attacks on other online services sought to claim responsibility for the outages, but Facebook said the fault was its own. “This was not the result of a third-party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems," Facebook said.

China's three biggest Internet companies, which also includes Baidu Inc , all appeared in the country's top 5 rankings, said advertising company WPP Plc and its research affiliate Millward Brown. "For the first time the tech industry surpasses the banking industry in terms of brand value," said Doreen Wang, global head of BrandZ at Millward Brown, citing the rise of Internet finance and the decline of profits at big banks. The Chinese social media giant's brand value has surpassed Facebook Inc and it is now the world's fifth most valuable tech brand, following Apple Inc , Google Inc , International Business Machines Corp and Microsoft Corp , according to Wang.

To match SPECIAL REPORT CHINA-LABOUR/By Michael Gold and Yimou Lee SHENZHEN, China (Reuters) - Taiwan's Foxconn Technology Group, the world's largest contract electronics manufacturer, will cut its massive workforce, the company told Reuters, as the Apple Inc supplier faces declining revenue growth and rising wages in China. Under its flagship unit Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd , the group currently employs about 1.3 million people during peak production times, making it one of the largest private employers in the world. Revenue growth at the conglomerate tumbled to 1.3 percent in 2013 and only partially recovered to 6.5 percent last year after a long string of double-digit increases from 2003 to 2012.

By Paul Carsten BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese online food delivery service Ele.me said on Tuesday it has raised $350 million from investors including CITIC Private Equity, Tencent Holdings Ltd , JD.com Inc , Dianping and Sequoia Capital. The delivery firm, whose name roughly translates as 'Hungry Now?', is part of a trend in China for what is known as online-to-offline (O2O) services. As more Chinese use their phones for everything from shopping to booking restaurants, China's internet giants Alibaba , Tencent and Baidu Inc are increasingly investing these services to attract more users to their own platforms. Earlier this month, Chinese auto information website operator Bitauto Holdings Ltd said JD.com and Tencent would together invest about $1.3 billion in the company.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella gestures during his keynote address at the company's "build" conference in San FranciscoMicrosoft Corp said on Monday fiscal second-quarter profit fell, in line with Wall Street's forecasts, as sluggish personal computer sales dampened demand for Windows software and the company struggled with unfavorable currency moves against the strong U.S. dollar. "While currency is a headwind for Microsoft and other large international companies, we would characterize the headline numbers as good enough, although some bulls may have been hoping for a bigger beat," said Daniel Ives, an analyst at FBR Capital Markets. Microsoft reported profit of $5.86 billion, or 71 cents per share for the latest quarter, compared with $6.56 billion, or 78 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter.

Alfred turns your iPad or iPhone into a remote control for your MacA new app available in the iOS App Store today will let you configure your iPhone or iPad as a kind of supercharged remote control for your Mac. Called Alfred Remote, it essentially offers you multiple panels of buttons to do things like launch apps, control iTunes, turn on your screen saver, perform custom searches, paste text snippets, and do much nerdier things if you put your mind to it. It's $4.99, and it's designed to be paired with Alfred for the Mac, a free app with an in-app upgrade of £17 (around $25 US). I've been using Alfred Remote for a few days now, and while I'm impressed by its stability and functionality, I'm not sure that it will become as essential to my workflow as the main Mac app.

Chinese officials allegedly feasted on an endangered giant salamanderChinese officials have come under fire for allegedly eating an endangered giant salamander and attacking journalists who saw them do it. Three journalists from the Southern Metropolis Daily newspaper attended the dinner undercover and reported that another attendee brought two cases of yellow wine and a giant salamander, which he said was bred in captivity. The giant salamander is listed as a "critically endangered" species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, and its population has declined dramatically in recent decades, largely due to human consumption. Some practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine believe the amphibian has therapeutic properties, though there is no evidence to support their claims.

This tattoo could save your lifeMore than 8% of the earth’s adult population has diabetes, which means close to 390 million need to check their glucose levels on a regular basis. Checking sugar levels can be an annoying and rather invasive process, as it most often requires the use of needles to draw actual blood, which then gets tested on a special device. Many researchers are looking into more user-friendly ways of measuring glucose, including temporary tattoos that can be applied to the skin and accurately take sugar measurements without once breaching the protective skin layer.
