Windows 10 release date finally confirmed

Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 will be available from July 29th globally.

AMD’s president and CEO Dr. Lisa Su recently revealed that Windows 10 will launch at the end of July, and it seems she was correct.

The operating system (OS) will launch in 190 countries as a free upgrade to customers using Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

The Start menu returns with Windows 10, as well as support for Windows Defender providing users with free anti-malware protection.

On Microsoft’s blog, the company stated: “With Windows 10, we start delivering on our vision of more personal computing, defined by trust in how we protect and respect your personal information, mobility of the experience across your devices, and natural interactions with your Windows devices, including speech, touch, ink, and holograms.“

Microsoft’s personal assistant Cortana is also available with Windows 10, along with a new web browser called Microsoft Edge. The browser offers users content based on their interests with a built-in commenting system.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.1 world conquest plan: folders!

Ebin published a link to a Microsoft page categorised as having something to do with Windows Phone 8 and the title “Create folders on my Start screen”. That page has since disappeared from Windowsphone.com, but not from Google’s cache.

The page offers the following procedure for creating a folder:

  • On Start Start button, tap and hold a Tile.
  • Drag the Tile on top of another Tile that you want to have in the same folder. You have just created a folder!
  • To name the folder, tap Name folder, and then type whatever name you like.
  • To add another Tile to the folder, simply tap and hold a Tile, and then drag it into the folder.

In other words, exactly the same folder-creating routine from iOS and Android.

Apple to begin work on slimmer, lighter iPad 5

Apple is set to begin work on the next iPad, which will feature a slimmer, lighter design following the success of the iPad mini.

Digitimes reports that production of the iPad 5 will begin in July, with Apple opting for a slimmer design, which will be up to between 25 and 33 per cent lighter than its predecessor.

It’s understood that the new iPad will incorporate glass within its Retina display, which is made possible by the use of new touch sensor technology. Meanwhile, a slimmer backlighting device will also decrease the device’s bulk.
