This week on tech, Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 10122 to the fast ring of updates with a number of improvements on the Start menu, Continuum, Settings app, and on the Microsoft Edge browser, and it includes a number of updated universal apps.
While build 10122 is a more stable and polished version, the company also warned users of a big issue running the Microsoft Edge browser on a system running AMD graphics. However, on a quick response to the issue, AMD is already offering an updated version of it drivers to solve the issue.
For those having issues installing the latest build of Windows 10 on Surface Pro 3, Microsoft offered a quick workaround to successfully upgrade to the latest version of the operating system.
This week Microsoft also shared more details on how the upgrade to Windows 10 will work for non-genuine version of Windows, and unveiled what are the Windows 10 paths coming from Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
Due to a number of issues, the software giant decided that Windows 10 Mobile build 10080 won’t release to the Slow ring of update and Windows Insiders will have to wait until the next public release to see a new build for phone in the Slow ring.
Microsoft’s Phil Spencer from the Xbox team hinted that the first beta version of Windows 10 for Xbox One will arrive “post-summer”. However, no specific date or list of features has be been detailed.
The Xbox app for Windows 10 gets updated with a number of new features, including a tool to test the upcoming game streaming feature between Xbox One and Windows 10 devices.
Also, this week the Xbox One digital TV tuner from Hauppauge goes on sale in the United States and Canada to allow users watch over-the-air TV with the ability to pause up to 30 minutes of live TV (but remember that you’ll also have to purchase an antenna to make it all work).
Early this week we learned that Microsoft is coming with two new apps: OneClip and Flow. OneClip is a new app to let users sync their clipboard content across devices. And Flow is a new chap application meant to offer a natural way of conversation. It will not provide subject lines, salutations, or signatures. In other words, it will be just like sending a Tweet or a text message on your phone.
The Microsoft Fresh Paint app get updated to support Windows 10. Office arrives to Android phones as a preview. Google is reportedly building a new IoT operating system called Brillo to compete with Windows 10 IoT, and Surface Pro gets discounted, but only for one model. All this and more…
