Microsoft to can Paint in next Windows 10 update

Jul 25, 2017 - 9:05 AM - by Reverend
Microsoft is set to expunge Paint from Windows 10 in its forthcoming Fall Creators Update - when it finally appears.

Paint (or Paintbrush, as it was originally named) has been a part of Windows since Windows 1.0, but a new document has revealed that the Autumn Creators Update could see the familiar canvas replaced formally by Paint 3D, which made an inauspicious debut in the last Creators Update.

It's not alone in being deleted from Windows 10. Other notable programs and features that are due for removal or have been declared as depreciated include 3D Builder (replaced by Paint 3D), Outlook Express, Reader (merged into Edge), Reading List (also mereged into Edge) and IIS 6.0.

There are plenty more other apps and features that Microsoft also plans to remove when it updates Windows, all outlined here.

Samsung announces August 23 Unpacked event, Note 8 likely

Jul 20, 2017 - 9:32 PM - by Reverend
Galaxy Note fans won't have to wait much longer to see what Samsung has in store for the Note 8.

Samsung on Thursday announced its next Unpacked event, where the company typically announces new products, will take place on August 23. The post on Twitter features the tagline "Find out what it means to do bigger things on 08.23.2017."

The event is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM EST in New York and will be live streamed by Samsung on Samsung.com according to invites sent to the press.

The Note 8 is expected to feature the same basic design as the Galaxy S8 line, with an Infinity Display that shows virtually no bezel on the front. A larger display -- 6.3-inches -- compared to the S8 Plus' display of 6.2-inches, dual rear cameras, and, of course, an S-Pen are also expected.

Windows 10 Creators Update ends support for some Intel PCs early

Jul 17, 2017 - 9:05 PM - by Reverend
Owners of some Windows 10 laptops and tablets are crashing into a worrying roadblock when they try to install the Windows 10 Creators Update. Windows Update initially says the notebooks are compatible with the upgrade, but fails to install it after downloading the setup files, instead displaying the following message: “Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC. Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 10.”

That sounds ominous, but you don’t need to uninstall your existing version of Windows 10, and there’s no app to uninstall. Instead, the message means your PC’s hardware isn’t compatible with the Creators Update—which could wind up being trouble in the future. Here’s what you need to know about the error, which affects early 2-in-1 PCs powered by Intel’s Clover Trail processors.

What processors and PCs are affected?

A recent ZDNet article thrust this issue into the spotlight, but Microsoft laid out details about the error in an April forum post. Microsoft won’t let affected hardware install the Creators Update because “Icons and/or text throughout the Windows interface may not appear at all, or may appear as solid color blocks on some devices.”

Devices with these Intel “Clover Trail” processors are impacted:

Atom Z2760
Atom Z2520
Atom Z2560
Atom Z2580

Clover Trail processors powered the earliest Windows 8 2-in-1 hybrid devices, such as the HP Envy X2 and the Asus VivoTab. If you embraced Microsoft's vision for a versatile future for Windows in the early days, you’re now left stranded if you accepted—or were forced into—the... [Read More]

Microsoft pulls the plug on support for Windows Phone 8.1

Jul 11, 2017 - 6:14 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft said Tuesday that it was ending support for Windows Phone 8.1, one of the more notable updates to its troubled mobile operating system.

The writing has been on the wall for a while for Windows Phone, which hasn't gotten a meaningful update or any new products in two years. While Microsoft continues to support the successor to 8.1, Windows 10 Mobile, the move marks another sad chapter in the company's desperate struggle to gain relevancy in the smartphone market at a time when iPhones and phones running on Google's Android software dominate the world.

Windows Phone 8.1 was the fourth iteration of the mobile operating system and introduced the Cortana digital assistant to the phone. High-end devices like the Lumia 930 sported the new software, and companies like HTC, Acer and Alcatel offered products using the platform.

But there was a lack of app support for phones running on the OS, which offered a unique tile-based user interface similar to the PC version of Windows, and consumers weren't interested either. The Windows 10 mobile update hasn't fared much better, and there's minimal support from device makers.

Microsoft could lay off ‘thousands’ as it focuses more on cloud services

Jul 03, 2017 - 10:32 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft reorganized its global sales force today to heighten its focus on selling cloud services instead of standalone pieces of software, according to The Wall Street Journal. The reorganization, just the latest in a series of structural changes the company has undergone since former CEO Steve Ballmer resigned and Satya Nadella took over in 2014, won’t immediately result in layoffs. Yet the WSJ reports that thousands of jobs could be cut down the line as a result of the sales shuffle.

This doesn’t appear like it will have a huge impact on how Microsoft does business on a day-to-day basis. Since the appointment of Nadella, the former head of Microsoft’s cloud division, the company has put more and more resources toward building out its Azure cloud computing platform and selling software subscriptions to businesses. This is all part of a steady shift away from one-time software licenses for products like Windows and Office. Microsoft is still playing catch up against Amazon, with the massive success of its AWS business, and now trying to stave off competition from Google and its growing cloud division.

Microsoft says it will now focus on two distinct areas: big enterprise customers, and then small to medium-sized businesses. It’s not exactly clear what changes are in the pipeline, but an email from Judson Althoff, Microsoft’s executive vice president of worldwide commercial business, says sales reorganization is designed to “align the right resources for the right customer at the right time.” The magnitude of the potential layoffs is unclear, but the WSJ says they will likely occur in offices all around the globe.
