  Windows 10 build 14257 hits fast ring with minor improvements and a ninja monkey
Time: 11:12 EST/16:12 GMT | News Source: DigitalTrends.com | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Not every Windows 10 build is going to be a game changer, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less important. Build 14257 is one such example, and it’s now been pushed out to fast ring Windows Insiders to get their early-adopting mits on. Coming along with the update was a caveat by the head of the Windows Insider program, Microsoft’s Gabe Aul. He said that the reason there were no big changes in this release, is because it’s the beginning of a new developmental cycle.

  Microsoft launches Azure IoT Hub, adds more device partners
Time: 11:10 EST/16:10 GMT | News Source: WinBeta | Posted By: Byron Hinson

If Microsoft didn’t succeed to become a major player in mobile, the company clearly wants to be an early leader in another race. The Internet of Things (IoT) may be the next big technology trend with lots of smart devices collecting data and communicating with each other, and Microsoft is working to get in on it early. By releasing the Azure IoT Suite just a few months ago, Microsoft wanted to provide enterprises a pre-configured solution to easily connect, monitor assets and analyze data in real time. But today, the company is going further with the release of the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub, a platform for any IoT device that will also work with the Azure IoT Suite:

  Mojang still alive and kicking, releases Cobalt for the Xbox One
Time: 11:07 EST/16:07 GMT | News Source: WinBeta | Posted By: Byron Hinson

After the acquisition by Microsoft, one would have thought Mojang would have turned into a sole Minecraft machine for the Redmond software giant (or worse). That, of course, was not the case: the studio released its second game, Secret, recently, and just published another one one, Cobalt, on the Xbox Store. Developed by Oxeye Game Studio AB, the game is a side-scrolling action game featuring the titular cyborg on a mysterious planet solving challenges, uncovering secrets, and participating in multiplayer battles, with a focus on competitive gaming.

Time: 12:48 EST/17:48 GMT | News Source: Forbes.com | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Happy using Windows 7 or Windows 8? You might not be happy much longer, because Microsoft has announced Windows 10 will now start installing automatically on Windows 7 and Windows 8 PCs… The development sees Microsoft follow through on its controversial October roadmap which said Windows 10 would have its status changed in 2016 to become a ‘Recommended’ upgrade in Windows Update. In basic terms this means anyone who uses Windows 7 or Windows 8 with default Windows Update settings (the vast majority) will now see Windows 10 begin installing by itself.

  Can a Surface Phone save Windows 10 Mobile?
Time: 12:46 EST/17:46 GMT | News Source: E-Mail | Posted By: Byron Hinson

A few weeks ago, a Microsoft job listing indicated a major change to Windows 10 Mobile, one that if executed correctly, could save the smartphone operating system from fading to obscurity. Though it may seem like an unlikely prospect, the addition of 64-bit ARM support and x86 support to Windows 10 Mobile could break or make the platform, assuming the Windows mobile platform hasn’t already taken enough of a hit.

  Xbox’s Aaron Greenberg expresses his true feelings for Phil Spencer
Time: 12:44 EST/17:44 GMT | News Source: WinBeta | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Xbox head Phil Spencer is often credited with turning around Microsoft’s Xbox business after a disastrous PR misstep, whose effect can still be felt in the console’s trailing behind its biggest competitor till this day. While Spencer is often seen on the big stage smiling and being excited, given the street cred of Microsoft’s old bosses, one cannot help but wonder: just how different is he back at work? Turns out, not much, as Xbox Games Marketing head Aaron Greenberg, has revealed to IGN in a new interview.

  Bill Gates Admits He Was a Nightmare Boss
Time: 11:42 EST/16:42 GMT | News Source: E-Mail | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Microsoft chief Bill Gates, the college dropout turned world’s richest man, admits that his own tireless work ethic made him one of the world’s most difficult men to work for. “I was quite fanatical about work. I worked weekends, I didn’t really believe in vacations. I had to be a little careful not to try and apply my standards to how hard they worked,” he said in an interview on BBC 4 radio’s “Desert Island Discs.” That fanaticism led to him tracking the comings and goings of employees, so he could monitor just how much midnight oil they were burning. “You know, I knew everyone’s license plates so I could look out in the parking lot and see, when did people come in, when were they leaving,” he said. “Eventually I had to loosen up, as the company got to a reasonable size.”

Just weeks after Windows 8 was consigned to the history books, Microsoft’s latest operating system Windows 10 has overtaken its predecessor Windows 8.1 in terms of installs on 13.7pc of PCs worldwide. However, Windows 10 still has a long way to go before it can catch up with Windows 7, which is on 47.7pc of computers, according to the latest data from StatCounter.

  Microsoft is firing another shot at Google Apps
Time: 11:40 EST/16:40 GMT | News Source: E-Mail | Posted By: Byron Hinson

Microsoft's war with Google in the workplace escalates today with a new program designed to lure Google Apps users over to Office 365.
