perth_map

Dubbed Windows 10 S, the streamlined edition of the company's latest OS is nearly indistinguishable from Windows 10 Pro at a glance, but there's a key difference: it only runs apps from the Windows Store. Other PC makers will ship Windows 10 S laptops starting at $189 (€155) later this year. If you do upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, then you'll be able to do whatever you want to your computer. Read More »

Schumer: Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein Invited to Brief Senate

McCabe denied that, calling it a "highly significant investigation". "That is deeply troubling to many Department employees and veterans, legislators and citizens", he said. This contradicts the president's own termination letter to Comey on Tuesday that officially conveyed his dismissal.

South Korea's new president Moon Jae-In 'would visit Pyongyang'

A win by Moon would end a decade of conservative rule in South Korea and could result in sharp departures from recent policy toward nuclear-armed North Korea. In his view, the hasty move lacked democratic procedure, caused divisions in South Korea and aggravated foreign relations. Moon's win comes amid an ongoing war of words over a strategic US missile defense system being deployed in the South. Read More »

Windows 10 S laptops that could help Microsoft beat the Chromebook

Google Chromebooks that act as gateways to programs and services hosted in the internet cloud have become a hit in USA classrooms, taking terrain once dominated by Microsoft and Apple.

Microsoft planning more versatile Windows 10

Regular Windows 10 users can already get iTunes from Apple. However, we find it hard to believe that Microsoft will sit on these tools until Redstone 3 becomes a fancy-named update that hits every Windows 10 device. Windows 10 represents a comeback for Microsoft after a disastrous Windows 8 launch and heavy competition from phone systems such as Apple's iOS and Google's Android. Read More »

A new era for Windows

perth_map

One of the biggest surprises at Microsoft's Build developer conference past year was that the company was building support for the Bash shell on top of an Ubuntu-based Linux subsystem right into Windows 10. Belfiore acknowledged the obvious concern: what if one device doesn't have the right app that you need installed? Microsoft's latest version of Windows is faring better than its maligned predecessor, but the software's growth is still stunted by a shift away from personal computers. Read More »

perth_map

As spotted by Android Police , gone is the shopping bag that served as a reminder of the Android Market, which is the name that the Play Store went by before it was the Play Store. Even with Google's corporate icon update, the company still maintained its playful use of color. Also, another cosmetic change is the new notification icon for the Google Play Store, which is now similar to the new Google Play Store icon but has a tick icon inside it to indicate the application as installed.

North Korea, US face new dynamic with South Korea's new leader

Moon said Wednesday he was open to visiting rival North Korea under the right conditions to talk about Pyongyang's aggressive pursuit of nuclear-tipped missiles. North Korea's heightened threat could change Moon's calculus once in power. But analysts warn perceptions that the US ignored South Korean input on its own security issues - compounded when Trump called both Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to discuss North Korea, but the caretaker government in ...
