An interesting collaboration which requires translation

An interesting collaboration which requires translation

After years of rivalry which began with the companies’ founders, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, it now appears that Apple and Microsoft are finally working together. Microsoft has released a new Outlook app for Apple Watch. What to make of this product collaboration is for business and tech analysts to configure. For customers, it can only be good news because the convenience of having more options remains strong. The updated Microsoft app allows Apple Watch users to access additional info from received messages, transcribed, as always, by Siri. All users have to do is tap their watch for swift responses…

Microsoft’s Cortana makes its way to Google Play Store

Microsoft's Cortana makes its way to Google Play Store

Microsoft’s digital assistant, Cortana, is now publically available to non-Microsoft users. Called a public beta, it is available in the Google Play Store. It will also be coming to Apple’s iOS. Cortana is something of a helper-finder for users. She (or he?) locates restaurants and assumingly stores a lot of other things that folks seem to have trouble finding. She can even do internet searches. Those new to the Microsoft digital assistant can access it via Google Play. Google Play has new beta rules in place, making it easy for new users to sign up. To join the beta program…

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…

Costly new toys from the house of Microsoft

Costly new toys from the house of Microsoft

New customers will be paying more to use Microsoft. This is not unusual when companies procure losses due to poor boardroom decisions. In spite of Microsoft’s bad call on a Scandinavian mobile phone legend the software giant is still proceeding with its launch of the Lumia 950 XL. The world has come to know about the impending launch from leaked images of the new handset. Previous and regular users of Microsoft products have some surprises to look forward to. Previously, they could play their DVDs on their PC’s for free. Now, they won’t. Users who have already begun their ‘free’…

Windows 10 – The Verdict

Windows 10 - The Verdict

Windows 10 was possibly one of the most awaited Windows update Microsoft has released in a long time. Although the update just released, over 14 million users are said to have already installed it. This was within just 24 hours of the launch. Like all new updates, Windows 10 to0 has a few bugs that might need some immediate attention. It looks like the update hit the target with its launch, but if Microsoft wants Windows 10 to stay popular then they might want to check for the errors that users are facing and rectify them soon. The number of…

Firefoxing Microsoft: What exactly happened?

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

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…

Windows is still only OK

Windows is still only OK

It is considered by some analysts to be a decent launch. Microsoft’s Windows 10 is also guardedly viewed as an improvement of Windows 7 and Windows 8. So far, the initial launch has proceeded with barely a whimper. Responses have been mixed, if not tentative. Analysts continue to ask questions rather than offer favorable reviews on early sightings and testings of the new software package. For starters, Windows 10 will be rolled out in three distinct phases rather than once-off. Perhaps a negative reaction to previous phased launches of earlier Windows software packs, Microsoft Inc. is not about to throw…

Windows continue to close

Windows continue to close

While Microsoft’s brash CEO, Satya Nadella, continues to sharpen his axe, firing thousands of workers and write off the bad business of Nokia, analysts remain baffled. One analyst added a dash of humor to his introspections on the company that Bill Gates founded. A huge concern for users, particularly those who have had Microsoft’s software forced upon them over the years, is that, according to this analyst, things will get worse. Bets are on as to whether Microsoft will survive Nadella’s restructuring methodologies. But by defying the conventions of corporate restructuring, Nadella may be onto something. While to observers, it…
