Xbox LIVE services interrupted, Companion app not working

Not a great sign, but launching the Xbox Companion app will result in you being greated with the "Can't sign in to Xbox LIVE" error message, making the app completely useless this evening.

Microsoft is aware of the problem and are actively working on it, but that's little comfort for those of us on a Saturday night looking to show off this prized technological marvel.  Lets just hope that it gets resolved ASAP.

Thanks, Amir, for the tip!
