According to a recent blog post on Microsoft’s website, Microsoft will be holding a major press event in New York City on October 26, 2016. Aside from it saying that it’s a Windows 10 event, no additional information has been shared at this time.
As far as rumors up until this point, we haven’t heard much in regards to any new hardware that will be announced at the show. It has been rumored that Microsoft may reveal a new Surface device, but everything is pure speculation at this point. During the event, we’ll probably see some new Windows 10 devices from Microsoft’s partners as we head into the holidays. It’s been rumored that [...]
Microsoft recently pushed update KB3194496 for Windows 10 out to the masses, but it seems like things haven’t gone according to plan.
According to a recent article by tech site Thurrott, Microsoft’s latest update is having issues installing properly. Then when the update fails to install, it causes some machines to restart over and over to remove the failed update. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Windows then attempts to reinstall the update that just failed only to fail, reboot, uninstall, and potentially reboot several more times again. Some users did report that the install ended up working on the second or third try, but for others, [...]

The tech community has recently gone up in arms against Microsoft after their reaffirmation that they will not be supporting CPUs newer than Intel Haswell on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. While many has seen this as a power play by Microsoft to force users to upgrade to Windows 10, HotHardware recently presented a possible alternate explanation with much less malicious intent.
According to HotHardware, the decision not to support newer CPUs on older operating systems boils down to additional features that were added to the new CPUs. This largely includes the newest power saving features from both Intel and AMD as well as SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) from [...]
Haven’t taken advantage of that free upgrade to Windows 10? Planning to upgrade to a new Intel Kaby Lake or AMD Zen based Summit Ridge CPU down the line? Think again!
Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that they’ll be ending support on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 for newer CPUs, forcing users who upgrade to a newer CPU to purchase a copy of Windows 10. This new support policy change will include upcoming processors such as Intel’s Kaby Lake and AMD’s Bristol Ridge/Summit Ridge CPUs. Originally Microsoft had also included Intel Haswell processors among the processors that would lose Windows 7/8.1 support however, [...]
If you haven’t checked your Windows 10 updater yet, be sure to do so soon as Microsoft recently rolled out their highly anticipated Windows 10 Anniversary Update marking the 1 year anniversary of the new operating system. Microsoft had promised more regular updates to their newest operating system and this appears to be the first of many to come.

While the list of features and bug-fixes are more extensive than can be listed here, some of the biggest feature additions and improvements [...]

For 4QFY2016, Microsoft’s Intelligent Cloud [...]
The day has finally come for Microsoft to retire its aging browser versions. The software giant has officially announced the end of support for Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 on January 12, 2016.
The end of support means that Microsoft will no longer be releasing security, performance, and stability patches to the versions of IE mentioned above. This is done to reduce support cost and allocate more resources to supporting IE 11 and Microsoft’s latest browser Microsoft Edge.
IE 11 will continue to receive support until at least the end of Windows 10’s life cycle, which is October 13, 2020. However, IE 11 is the last version of Internet Explorer [...]
The wait is over boys and girls, Microsoft’s latest and greatest operating system has landed!
As the successor to Windows 8 and 8.1, Windows 10 brings some much needed improvements to the popular operating system. Aside from a plethora of under-the-hood performance optimizations, Windows 10 also features a desperately needed UI overhaul that merged the traditional look of Windows 7 and the new card system from Windows 8 for a more intuitive experience. For example, the start button is finally back. It now properly launches the start menu and also displays tiles on the side. There is no longer two desktops to fiddle around with like we had to in [...]
