Windows 10 upgrade will not affect Microsoft financially

Windows 10 upgrade will not affect Microsoft financially

Microsoft is not having sleepless nights about their free Windows 10 upgrades, which are being rolled out across the world. The company is saying that this roll-out will have no financial impact on their bottom line. By reporting massive losses, the tech giant has forced tech and financial analysts around the globe scratch their heads; according to those experts, either this ‘free’ upgrade is not free or someone else is paying for this. Ultimately the Windows 10 upgrade is not free. It is free in the usual marketing sense when a salesman tells his unwitting customer, after barging his toe in the front…

An Apple a day will keep the voicemails away

An Apple a day will keep the voicemails away

Most mobile users have heard them, and many more have stopped listening to them altogether because voicemail messages can be an irritating bugbear particularly on blue Mondays, or even on other relatively good days. Many messages are recorded tactlessly by their senders and are incoherent at best. Apple’s Siri has heard irritated users loud and clear, though. Soon, Siri will be listening to voicemails and transcribing them into text which can be best understood by its readers. It seems as though Siri has responded to mostly younger fans.

Firefoxing Microsoft: What exactly happened?

Microsoft is using users’ internet bandwidth to carry out free Windows 10 updates at users’ expense. The giant software company is still running at a loss. The tech biggie was initially at a loss for words (and action) when Mozilla Firefox’s CEO Chris Beard decided to take Microsoft to task for their poor handling of their introduction of Windows 10. The Firefox CEO contacted Microsoft’s Satya Nadella directly, but no ‘meaningful progress’ has been achieved through this publicized confrontation. The Next Web was the first to blow the whistle. They found a feature called Windows Update Delivery Optimization that simultaneously saves…

Free Windows dressing from Microsoft

Free Windows dressing from Microsoft

In the manual of effective sales techniques to drive up sales and generate profits, it is one of the oldest tricks. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. It all depends on the product being sold and how well it does with its consumers. It also depends on how good the product is. If it is a bad one, or merely functional, recipients of company gifts may want to look elsewhere for alternatives. For now though, the sales pitch tells customers that there is no other software package like it. The pitch is being heard by mostly loyal customers or PC…

There are factors that might stop you from upgrading to Windows 10

That day has finally come. The Window has opened for millions of Microsoft users around the world to begin upgrading to Windows 10. Diligent Windows users have already begun the arduous upgrading process. However, help is always at hand; it is still left to tech Samaritans to provide this, free of charge in most cases, while Insiders and reviewers give their verdicts on the process so far. One reviewer supercharged his pessimism ahead of time, warning PC users of Windows 7, or Windows 8.1, that it may not be a good idea to begin upgrading to Windows 10. Anyone planning to…

Google improving Chrome for OS X to counter Safari

It is no hidden secret that while Google’s Chrome browser presents a myriad of flexible features, it takes quite a big chunk of the machine’s resources, particularly on devices that are running Apple’s OS X platform.

According to a source, the advertising giant has been taking steps in order…
