After open sourcing Windows Calculator, Microsoft is adding new features

5 hours 42 minก่อน

When Microsoft announced earlier this month that it was open sourcing the Windows Calculator app for Windows 10, it honestly didn’t seem like that big of a deal. It’s a calculator app, after all. But unlike some of the company’s past efforts to release old software under an open source license for educational and historical […]

8 hours 25 minก่อน

Plenty of companies turn to crowdfunding in order to raise the cash needed to manufacturer and ship their products. Eve Tech made a splash a few years ago by doing something a little different — the company “crowd developed” a Windows tablet by incorporating feedback from potential customers along the way… and then launching a crowdfunding […]

ศุกร์, 03/22/2019 - 23:30

Intel ceases development of Compute Cards (in the latest modular computing fail)

ศุกร์, 03/22/2019 - 22:07

When Intel unveiled its Compute Card platform in early 2017, the company painted a picture of a modular future where you could buy a smart TV, internet-connected home appliances, or even computer docks and upgrade their processors, memory, and RAM in the future by simply swapping out a credit card-sized device. That future never really […]

ศุกร์, 03/22/2019 - 02:49

So you may have heard, but the past few years haven’t been so great for Facebook when it comes to public relations. But if you’ve been wondering what could possibly make things worse, here’s an idea: what if it turns out Facebook was caught storing hundreds of millions of users’ passwords in plain text? Oh […]

Microsoft’s antivirus software is now available for Mac

ศุกร์, 03/22/2019 - 01:45

Microsoft’s Windows operating system has included some form of built-in antivirus software for more than a decade. But the software formerly known as Windows Defender is getting a new name… and for good reason. It’s now called Microsoft Defender, and the company is dropping Windows from the name because it’s no longer a Windows exclusive […]

Intel’s first 9th-gen laptop chips are coming this year

พฤ, 03/21/2019 - 21:23

We should start to see laptops with 9th-gen Intel Core processors later this year, but rather than start with an upgrade to the 15 watt Whiskey Lake-U chips that power today’s thin-and-light laptops, it looks like Intel is focusing on the follow-up to its 45-watt, high-performance Coffee Lake-H family first. If you’re curious about the […]

พฤ, 03/21/2019 - 02:06

Plenty of companies have laptops that transform into tablets. But Compal’s DuoFlip is something a little… different. At first glance it looks like a normal notebook, and you can use it like one by lifting the lid the way you would on any other laptop PC. Push the screen back 360 degrees and you can […]

พุธ, 03/20/2019 - 03:00

Google’s Pixel 3 smartphones sell for $799 and up when they’re not on sale for $200 off (like they are right now), which isn’t surprising for a modern flagship phone. But that does make them the most expensive Pixel or Nexus phones to date… which makes them a tough sell for some customers. Rumor has […]
