Windows 10 users back away from the Edge

Oct 06, 2015 - 5:33 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft's new Edge browser has been largely ignored by U.S. users of Windows 10, an online measurement company said Monday.

Instead, Google's Chrome has shanghaied Windows 10's top browser spot.

Although Edge -- the default browser bundled with Windows 10 -- got a temporary boost when the operating system launched in late July, its share of all browsers on the OS quickly slipped from an early peak of about 16% to its current 12%.

According to San Francisco-based Quantcast, Chrome is the dominant browser on Windows 10 in the U.S., with a share slightly north of 70%.

Quantcast measures Web traffic at more than 100 million websites, primarily those in the U.S., to deliver audience and advertising data to brands and publishers. Like most analytics vendors, Quantcast can mine that data to break out browser and OS usage based on website visitors and page views.

In a Monday blog, Quantcast software engineer Jackson Newhouse said that Edge had failed to dislodge Chrome from its dominant spot. Slightly more than 70% of the browser activity originating from Windows 10 was due to Chrome, an even higher percentage than on Windows 7 and Windows 8, where Google's browser accounted for approximately 63% of all activity.

While the raw number of Edge's users has certainly grown as Windows 10's share has climbed -- currently, more than 15% of all Quantcast's Windows traffic comes from the new OS -- Edge's fraction of that increasing number has remained static.

Mozilla's Firefox accounts for more browsing activity on Windows 10 than does Edge. Meanwhile, Internet Explorer (IE) -- -- has a tiny share of less than 5% on Windows 10. IE has been demoted to a supporting role on Windows 10 as an alternative when it's necessary to access sites and Web apps written for that aged browser.

Microsoft unveils first laptop, updated devices using Windows 10

Oct 06, 2015 - 5:30 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft Corp unveiled on Tuesday its first laptop, a line of Lumia smartphones, a new Surface Pro tablet and an updated version of its wearable fitness tracker, Microsoft Band, all running on Windows 10, its latest operating system.

Microsoft is counting on Windows 10, launched in July, to help it win a bigger share of the market for tablets and smartphones, now dominated by Apple Inc and South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co Ltd.

Microsoft said its laptop, the Surface Book, will start at $1,499 and is twice as fast as Apple's MacBook Pro. It will be available from Oct. 26, with preorders starting on Wednesday.

The laptop has a 13.5-inch display with 267 pixels per inch and features a track pad made of glass.

Microsoft, whose shares were up 0.6 percent at $46.89 at midday, said 110 million devices were now running Windows 10.

The company unveiled three phones at an event in New York. The Lumia 950 and 950XL will have starting prices of $549 and $649 respectively when they go on sale in November, while the Lumia 550 will cost $139 when it becomes available in December.

The Lumia 950 includes a 5.2-inch display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with hexacore CPUs. The Lumia 950 XL has a 5.7-inch display and a Snapdragon 810 processor with octa-core CPUs. The 550 has a 4.7-inch HD display and runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 210 processor. (bit.ly/1QWM6XT)

The new Surface Pro 4 tablet - a larger but thinner and lighter version of the Surface Pro 3 - is priced at $899 and will be available from Oct. 26 with pre-orders starting on Wednesday.

Launched nearly a year and a half after its predecessor, the Surface Pro 4 features a 12.3-inch screen with 267 pixels per inch. It runs on 6th-generation Intel Core processor and has 16GB of RAM and 1TB storage.

Surface Pro 4 is 50 percent faster than Apple's MacBook Air, Panos Panay, the... [Read More]

Twitter makes current events easier to follow with Moments

Oct 06, 2015 - 5:27 PM - by Reverend
After months of floundering to find a new CEO and shore up its user base, Twitter is having the best week ever. First, the publishing platform confirmed that cofounder Jack Dorsey is retaking the helm as CEO of the company he created. Now Twitter is officially rolling out a feature that will make it much easier for people to find the best and most important tweets of the day without having to hunt for them.

The new tool is called Moments, and it will be easily accessible in a new tab on Twitter for iOS, Android, and the web. Rolling out today for U.S. Twitter users, Moments will offer a curated list of current events in a variety of categories—news, sports, entertainment, etc.—and let you tap through to see more information about the moment and the most relevant tweets about it. Those tweets can be text only, or they can include GIFs, videos, photos, and Vines. Each Moment will include about a dozen tweets to swipe through so you can stay on top of the day’s most important events. If you don’t see the tab, marked with a lightning bolt, right away, don’t worry: It’s coming.

Perhaps most importantly, you can follow a Moment to see tweets about the event in your main feed, removing the work of hunting for and following people who are tweeting about an event and then unfollowing them when the moment passes. You can share a moment with a tweet, or embed it on the web, just like you can retweet and embed normal tweets.

Twitter is curating the list of Moments to start, but has also partnered with Bleacher Report, Buzzfeed, Entertainment Weekly, Fox News, Getty Images, Mashable, MLB, NASA, New York Times, Vogue and the Washington Post, who will all contribute their own Moments. According to the New York Times, Twitter will eventually let all users curate Moments.

Unlike your main Twitter stream, Moments will be ad-free—at least for now.

“We will feature tweets in Moments and select Moments based on... [Read More]

Apple sells record 13 million new iPhones

Sep 28, 2015 - 6:01 PM - by Reverend
It was a good weekend for Apple. The company said that it has sold a whopping 13 million new iPhones.

This record number includes iPhone sales from pre-orders and in-store sales from this past weekend. Last year, Apple sold 10 million units, including pre-orders, in the first weekend.

"Sales for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus have been phenomenal, blowing past any previous first weekend sales results in Apple's history," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO in a statement. "Customers' feedback is incredible and they are loving 3D Touch and Live Photos."

The new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus feature a different touch screen that is able to sense how long and hard someone is pressing. They also have a stronger aluminum body, faster and more efficient processor, as well as higher resolution cameras.

The company will open up sales for the new phone in 40 more countries on October 9.

Aldi Preparing UK Online Shopping For 2016

Sep 28, 2015 - 5:59 PM - by Reverend
The UK could be set to gain another major online supermarket following an announcement from Aldi that it is readying an ecommerce push.

The German retailer has confirmed that its UK business will begin selling wine by the case online from early next year. This will be followed by non-food “Specialbuys” items in the spring, and also offer customers home delivery and collection from third-party locations.

The move is part of Aldi’s wider growth strategy as more and more British consumers choose to do their shopping online with companies such as Ocado.

“This will enable us to introduce the Aldi brand and some of our best-selling, best-quality and best-value products to thousands more customers across the UK,” Aldi UK chief executive Matthew Barnes told Reuters.

Figures from market research firm Kantar Worldpanel revealed recently that Aldi is now Britain’s seventh largest supermarket brand, taking 5.6 percent share.

Fellow research firm Neilsen also revealed last week that almost half of UK households buying groceries are now visiting Aldi or its fellow low-cost German rival Lidl every month.
