Microsoft Windows 10: Best new features expected in the next update



This summer, Windows 10 turns one year old and with that birthday comes a big update for the Microsoft operating system. Microsoft has quietly published a Windows 10 business "roadmap," highlighting features that have been made available generally, those released in public preview, those that are still in development, and those that are no longer being developed, ZDNet reports.

While Microsoft has not officially announced which features will make the cut for the anniversary update in July, smart money is on some of the features listed in "public preview" and as "in development" on Microsoft's website.

This anniversary release will be available for free people who are already using Windows 10. ZDNet reports that this extends across devices -- from PCs to tablets to early adopters of Microsoft's HoloLens goggles.

So, what are some of the standout features? Here are some to look out for:

Making your phone more like a PC

We live in a touchscreen smartphone world, but for those traditionalists out there who cling to their mouse and keyboard, you might be in luck once the Windows update rolls around. The developer website lists enhancements to Continuum, technology that gives Windows phones the ability to connect to mice, keyboard, and large-screen monitors in order to function like a PC. These are listed as being in development.

Continuum-connected phones could sync up to monitors and screens attached to Windows 10 PCs. Basically, PCs will be able to act more like phones, and vice versa. In development is support for the Touch feature, which would work when a Continuum-compatible phone is attached to a touch-screen monitor. Similarly, a laptop-looking accessory that your phone could be mounted on would let your smartphone operate like a small laptop, continuing to make that computer-phone division nonexistent.

Better security





For those looking for a more secure way to access content on their Windows devices, the software update could include multifactor authentication for apps and websites. Users would use Microsoft Hello, which is billed as a "more personal way to sign into Windows," and Microsoft Passport as ways to log on in a multi-step, more secure way.

Beyond logging in, the Windows roadmap also lists "enterprise data protection," which provides file-level encryption for business data and apps. For those, especially businesses worried about data leaks, this adds more heavy-duty encryption capabilities to their Windows devices.

Cortana enhancements

Cortana, Microsoft's personal digital assistant (and rival to Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa), will be getting an upgrade, CNET reports.



It's already capable of answering your questions with a quick search in Microsoft's Bing, and can provide instant updates on weather, traffic and news headlines. Use voice commands to tell Cortana to set an alarm, send an email or check your schedule.

CNET says the summer update will enable Cortana to be used from the lock screen and in apps, such as Skype. The Microsoft roadmap suggests major enhancements to image search are also in the works.

Tabs and extensions

Windows 10 includes Microsoft Edge extensions for the software's Web browser. These can be applied to improve the browser's functionality.

For those who like to revisit popular sites again and again, the roadmap lists the ability to pin tabs belonging to your favorite sites directly to the browser. When a user launches Windows Edge, his or her pinned tabs will open immediately.

In the months to come, there will certainly be more details emerging about what Microsoft has in store with the Windows 10 update. Stay tuned.

Sony espera que vendas iniciais do PS4 superem PS3 em 40% | Internet | Reuters





TÓQUIO (Reuters) - A Sony está apostando que as vendas iniciais do PlayStation 4 serão 40 por cento maiores que a de seu último console, elevando a perspectiva de uma recuperação mais acelerada da divisão de eletrônicos de consumo do grupo.



O ofertas de smartphones console começará a ser vendido quase ao mesmo tempo que o Xbox One, da site de compras Microsoft, e será o novo carro-chefe de uma divisão de jogos que, junto a câmeras e dispositivos móveis, está no centro de um plano para revigorar um negócio há muito prejudicado por televisores.



A meta de vendas da Sony para o PS4 é de 5 milhões de unidades entre o lançamento nos Estados Unidos, em 15 de novembro, e o final do ano fiscal da companhia em 31 de março, disse o presidente da Sony, Andrew House, em uma apresentação na Tokyo Game Show nesta quinta-feira.





O PlayStation 3 vendeu 3,6 milhões de unidades em um espaço de tempo parecido sete anos atrás. O que faz a meta do PS4 parecer ainda mais ambiciosa é a data de lançamento no Japão, 22 de fevereiro, o que dará às vendas no país pouco mais de um mês apenas para contribuir para o objetivo.



A pré-venda do PS4 contabilizou 1 milhão de unidades até agosto.



O uso de componentes já existentes em vez de peças especialmente projetadas para o PS4 "permitiu que reduzíssemos a escala de investimento de modo significativo, colossalmente em comparação ao PS3", disse House à Reuters.





A Sony precisou de quatro anos para que o PS3 se tornasse rentável. A companhia espera agora que o PS4 seja lucrativo "muito mais cedo". O PS4 tem "um preço mais atraente", segundo House. O console será vendido inicialmente por 399 dólares nos EUA, comparado com os 599 dólares do PS3 e 499 dólares do Xbox One, que será lançado uma semana depois do PS4.

'Pokemon Go' Is Already Destroying Some Of The World's Biggest Apps

This is what a mobile hit grand slam looks like.

Pokemon Go is less than a week old, yet already the mobile-augmented reality game, in which players earn rewards for exploring their real-world environment, is a massive hit.

(Apparently the success even caught the game's creator, Niantic Labs, by surprise, as their servers have struggled to keep up with demand).

According to data obtained by SimilarWeb, an analytics firm, more Android users have installed the game than have installed the popular dating app Tinder:





That astronomical number of downloads has translated into a large number of daily active users, so much so that it currently rivals (and will likely surpass) Twitter:

But it doesn't stop there. As of July 8, a mere two days after the game's release, Pokemon Go users spent an average of 43 minutes and 22 seconds a day engaged with the app.

That's more than most other mobile app darlings, including Instagram, Snapchat and WhatsApp:

It's unclear yet how well the game's popularity will translate into revenue for Niantic and its partners in the venture, Pokemon Company and Nintendo, but Nintendo's stock has surged with the news.

As markets closed in Tokyo Mix de vendas Ofertas Monday, Nintendo's value was about $28 billion, and the value of the company's shares increased by about 25 percent from the start of the day.

'Pokemon GO' review: The cultural phenomenon is really fun to play

The Pokemon series, which made its debut on the Game Boy in the 90's, is back in the spotlight thanks to the success of the new "Pokemon GO" game. In the series, gamers 'capture' creatures known as Pokemon and use them to battle against one another.  There is also a storyline that involves defeating characters such as Team Rocket, who want to use Pokemon for power and greed. You also collect badges to master all of the gyms where creatures battle. Not much of a story, but great gameplay and a massive community brings it all together.

"Pokemon Go" is a smartphone app that mimics the gameplay of the Pokemon series. The user walks around and catches Pokemon in their vicinity. You can then train, battle or evolve your Pokemon to raise their power.

Niantic, the company that designed the game, teamed up with Google Maps to help design the game mechanics for walking around in real time to play the game. The user is able to see their avatar walking around the world, as well as 'PokeStops', special locations where digital items such as potions, poke balls and eggs can be found. Players also search for 'Gyms' where Pokemon are trained and battles take place.

In the game there are 3 different factions that a player can join. The purpose of these is to control major points around the world. So if the yellow team controls a specific point, red could gather up some friends and challenge them.

"Pokemon Go" is a free-to-play game. However, if you don't want to wait to collect certain items in the game, you can buy them via in-app purchases. 

While "Pokemon GO" is proving to be a cultural phenomenon, there are a lot of bugs and issues that come with the early stages of its release. The game, for example, can freeze or crash every now and then. Lag can be a major issue and if you live in a suburban area there will be a fewer  "PokeStops" and that means less items.



The app is very fun to play and can be quite addicting for people interested in the series. With the company already releasing patches and tweaks to help improve the gameplay, the game's popularity could grow even more. "Pokemon GO" has already garnered a lot of attention, and I believe it's only the beginning. 

Score: 7/10
