Microsoft shows off new app icons that will change the way Windows 10 looks

Dec 13, 2019 - 8:20 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft has been working hard on overhauling the look of Windows 10, and it’s now unveiled new icons for 100 of its most popular apps.

As part of the redesign, which Microsoft calls ‘Fluent Design’, a range of icons for various Microsoft apps, such as the Edge web browser, have got new colors, materials and finishes, and have been designed to give Windows (and its apps) a new modern look on a range of devices, from laptops and tablets to smartphones as well.

Jon Friedman, corporate vice president of design and research at Microsoft, explains in a blog post that the team “had to develop a flexible and open design system to span a range of contexts while still being true to Microsoft.”

We’ve previously seen hints of the direction Microsoft is taking with Fluent Design, with the company changing the icons of its Office apps and its Edge web browser, and now with 100 new icons incoming, the look of Windows 10 could change drastically.

As Friedman explains, “With the newest wave of icon redesigns, we faced two major creative challenges. We needed to signal innovation and change while maintaining familiarity for customers.”

So, while the icons are new, most of them, including icons for Calculator and Command Prompt, are easy to recognise.

44 million Microsoft users reused passwords in the first three months of 2019

Dec 07, 2019 - 9:45 AM - by Reverend
The Microsoft threat research team scanned all Microsoft user accounts and found that 44 million users were employing usernames and passwords that leaked online following security breaches at other online services.

The scan took place between January and March 2019.

Microsoft said it scanned user accounts using a database of over three billion leaked credentials, which it obtained from multiple sources, such as law enforcement and public databases.

The scan effectively helped Microsoft identify users who reused the same usernames and passwords across different online accounts.

The 44 million total included Microsoft Services Accounts (regular user accounts), but also Azure AD accounts.

"For the leaked credentials for which we found a match, we force a password reset. No additional action is required on the consumer side," Microsoft said.

"On the enterprise side, Microsoft will elevate the user risk and alert the administrator so that a credential reset can be enforced," it added.

The OS maker has been a staunch advocate and promoter of multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions.

Earlier this summer, the company said that enabling an MFA security measure for a Microsoft account blocks 99.9% of all attacks and that MFA bypass attempts are so rare its security team doesn't even have statistics on this type of threat.

Instagram will now ask new users to provide their age

Dec 05, 2019 - 9:22 PM - by Reverend
Nearly a decade after its launch, Instagram is finally taking the basic step of asking people signing up for the service to provide their age in an attempt to better protect younger users.

Starting Wednesday, the photo-sharing service will ask new users for their date of birth when an account is created. Previously, Instagram users were required to confirm they were ages 13 or older when signing up, but they didn't have to provide an exact birthday.

Instagram has long valued anonymity, including not requiring people to use real names.

However, as with any other online service, it's possible users can lie about their age in order to join. "Asking for this information will help prevent underage people from joining Instagram, help us keep young people safer and enable more age-appropriate experiences overall," Instagram wrote in a blog post.

Instagram said it would use age information to recommend younger people opt for more privacy settings, such as allowing new message requests only from people they follow.

The photo-sharing service had been criticized for not checking kids' ages, which potentially runs the risk of exposing younger users to inappropriate content and also allows Instagram to collect data about kids under the age of 13.

The Child Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) limits how a company can collect data about anyone under 13. COPPA was passed in 1998, but was expanded in 2012 to apply to more types of companies and new technologies, such as mobile devices and targeted ads.

Instagram now expects ad targeting to become more accurate as a result of the change. This could be especially important for product categories limited to certain ages, such as alcohol and gambling.

Previously, Instagram said it targeted those types of ads to people when it was "confident" they were the appropriate age. The company figured out... [Read More]

Microsoft delays Surface Earbuds until next year

Nov 21, 2019 - 8:52 PM - by Reverend
Microsoft has apparently decided to delay the launch of its Surface Earbuds. The $249 wireless earbuds, which the tech giant unveiled in October, won't be coming out until sometime in spring next year, said Microsoft Chief Product Officer Panos Panay in a tweet Thursday. The earbuds were originally expected to launch this year.

"Product-making is about the relentless pursuit to get all the details right, which takes time...sometimes more than we planned on," Panay wrote. "To ensure we deliver the best possible experience for you, our fans & customers, Surface Earbuds will now launch worldwide in Spring 2020."

Microsoft unveiled the Surface Earbuds at an event in October alongside its Surface Duo dual-screen Android phone and new Surface Pro X and Surface Pro 7 tablets. The company said the earbuds have a comfortable fit, tap-and-swipe controls that allow you to access Spotify playlists without touching your phone (for Android users), and on-the-fly translation capabilities, with support for 60 languages. Microsoft said they'll also deliver 8 hours of battery life from a single charge and that the charging case (with USB-C charging) provides an additional three charges.

Microsoft confirmed the Surface Earbuds won't launch until 2020 and said it'll have more specifics to share on timing in the coming months.
