New info on Windows 10 Mobile Redstone 2 and Surface Phone: PDF Print E-mail

We reported just a few minutes ago on some new information that surfaced from Microsoft regarding their Windows 10 Mobile commitment, namely an email that seems to reconfirm the company’s commitment to mobile even if it’s focused on business customers. Now, the source of the earlier story, Windows Central, has published some new information on Windows 10 Mobile and Microsoft’s future strategy. First up, Microsoft reportedly doesn’t consider the Lumia 950 and 950 XL to be good examples of what they want Windows 10 Mobile devices to be. Given the fact that the company is pushing them out the door as quickly as they can via aggressive tactics like BOGO offers, combined with Microsoft’s smartphone sales tanking last quarter, we’re not terribly surprised at this news. Second, there seems to be additional confirmation that the upcoming Surface Phone will indeed be awaiting a future Redstone 2 update to Windows 10 Mobile before hitting the streets. Currently, that’s slated for April 2017, according to Windows Central. Anybody who was hoping for a release of new Surface hardware,

A new report from piracy tracking firm MUSO reveals that the piracy landscape continues to evolve. Pirate sites received a staggering 140 billion visits last year, but there's a clear shift from torrents to direct download and streaming sites. Interestingly, traffic to private trackers remains relatively stable. While there haven’t been any breakthroughs in file-sharing technology in recent years, the piracy ecosystem is constantly evolving. Torrent sites have traditionally been very popular, but according to a new report published by piracy tracking outfit MUSO, direct download and streaming sites have taken over. Using data sampled from over 200 million devices by a leading data provider, the company compiled a detailed snapshot of the traffic that flowed to various websites last year. In total MUSO monitored traffic to 14,000 of the largest global piracy websites, which were visited a dazzling 141 billion times over a 12-month period.

Dangerous Windows 10 flaw lets hackers secretly run any app on your PC PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, 26 April 2016 10:17

A newly identified Windows 10 security flaw lets hackers install malicious apps on any machine, without business owners being made aware anything out of the ordinary is happening. The issue lets anyone familiar with Windows security bypass its defenses without leaving any trace on the machine. Discovered accidentally, the issue is significant, and Microsoft is yet to issue a patch. Found by Casey Smith, the Windows vulnerability doesn’t affect only Windows 10 machines. Malicious hackers could take advantage of the security flaw on enterprise versions of Windows dating back to Windows 7. The issue concerns a program called Regsvr32 (and Regsvr64 for 64-bit machines), which lets anyone execute code on a Windows computer from remote network locations. The flaw doesn’t trigger the AppLocker security software, which is supposed to only let users run apps from trusted sources, and it doesn’t leave any traces in the registry, as it doesn’t need administrator access.

Office 365 is now a developer platform but what's actually new here? PDF Print E-mail

"For the first time we are opening up Office 365 not just as an end-user and an enterprise tool and a service, but as a developer platform," said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella during the earnings call following the company's latest financial results. Despite Nadella's comment the ability to develop for Office 365 is not new, though it is significantly enhanced following announcements at the Microsoft Build developer conference at the end of March 2016. For Microsoft though, there is strategic sense in promoting Office as a web platform, adding value for those customers who sign up to Office 365. What is Microsoft Office? The answer used to be Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and a bunch of other more specialist applications like Access, Publisher, Project and Visio, all of which ran best on the Windows desktop and some of which were also available on the Mac. Today Microsoft means something different, especially in the context of Office as a platform. Office 365 is built around hosted Exchange, SharePoint, and the directory service called Azure Active Directory.

New Windows 10 build: New Start menu, notifications, and pen features PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sam   
Sunday, 24 April 2016 16:19

At its Build developer conference a few weeks ago, Microsoft announced the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, a major update for Windows 10 due this summer. One of its biggest aspects was substantially reworked and improved pen support ("Ink" in Microsoft terminology) intended to make pen applications easier to find and use and to make stylus use more powerful. A new Windows build that provides the first access to these new features, version 14328, has just been promoted to the fast ring. The core of this new support is the Windows Ink Workspace, a panel that provides instant access to pen-powered apps. Pressing the eraser button on a Surface Pen will show the panel instead of its current action (which opens OneNote). The Anniversary Update also comes with a trio of new pen apps: Sketchpad, a sketching app; Screen sketch, a screenshot annotation app; and a new Sticky Note app.
