  11. Since the release of Windows 8, Microsoft decided to remove the start button from the OS. Ever since, a lot of developers has used that as an advantage to create apps to bring back the start bottom. Microsoft thought of this and brought it back in Windows 8.1, yet still users are not appreciating it, and still want a start bottom app to replace Microsoft's start bottom. I have come across a lot of start bottom apps - used most of them. Day inn and Day out more and more start bottom apps is been released. Which is the BEST?

  12. For the past few years, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates has attended, but has not spoken, during the company's annual shareholder meeting. That changed today when Gates made a brief address during today's 2013 shareholder event, held in Bellevue, Wash. Gates talked about several subjects during his address to Microsoft shareholders, which was also livestreamed on the Internet. One of the bullet points was the search for a new chief executive to replace the retiring Steve Ballmer. Gates said that the search committee, which he is a member of, has been meeting regularly, including a gathering held Monday night. Gates said that several people are under consideration by the CEO search committee but did not offer any specific names, saying only they were looking at both external and internal candidates. Rumors claim Ford CEO Alan Mulally, former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and current Microsoft COO Kevin Turner are among the top candidates that are being considered. Gates said he and the committee were pleased with the progress that had been made in selecting Ballmer's replacement but would not give a timetable for when that process will be completed. Gates did state the following about what the new CEO will have to deal with when he or she takes over "It's a complex global business that the new CEO will have to lead and they'll have to drive across fundamental transitions to create new growth and attract and manage top talent. He'll have to build on our strengths while addressing areas that we have weaknesses or challenges. The person has to have a lot of comfort in leading a highly technical organization and have an ability to work with our top technical talent to seize the opportunities." - Gates Gates also thanked Ballmer for his time as CEO, saying, "In our entire 38-year history, we've had only two CEOs. And that alone makes us quite unusual." Gates also humorously mentioned the upcoming launch of the Xbox One on Friday, stating, "I've told my kids, though, that it's a school night, so even though in the past we used to sneak out after midnight and use computers, I don't want to see that happening, so my kids will be asleep that night."

  13. By Bogdan Popa January 30th, 2014, 10:28 GMT Microsoft could announce the name of Steve Ballmer’s successor as soon as next week, according to a new report, with all bets currently on cloud boss Satya Nadella. According to Recode, who cites sources close to the matter, Microsoft has almost completed the selection of a new CEO, so an announcement on the matter is prepared for the next week. Even though more than 100 candidates have been involved in the talks, it turns out that Satya Nadella will be the one to take over from Ballmer, with BUILD 2014 to mark his first public appearance as a Microsoft CEO. Former Nokia boss Stephen Elop and internals Kevin Turner and Tony Bates are also said to be involved in the last-minute talks, but they’re still behind Nadella in terms of board backing. It remains to be seen whether Microsoft would indeed make an announcement next week, but it’s pretty clear that the search for the third CEO of the company is almost done. http://news.softpedia.com/news/Microsoft-to-Announce-New-CEO-Next-Week-Report-422179.shtml
  14. By John Gruber Tuesday, 4 February 2014 In broad strokes, here is my view of Microsofts history. In the beginning, Bill Gates stated the companys goal: A computer on every desk and in every home. That was crazy. The PC revolution was well underway, but the grand total of PCs sold when Gates stated that mantra was, by todays standards, effectively zero. PCs were for hobbyists. Everyone involved knew they were on to something, but Gates realized, at the outset, that they were onto something huge. The industry was measuring sales in the thousands, but Gates was already thinking about billions. Heres Gates, in an interview from 2010: Paul Allen and I had used that phrase even before we wrote the BASIC for Microsoft. We actually talked about it in an article in I think 1977 was the first time it appears in print where we say, a computer on every desk and in every home and actually we said, running Microsoft software. If we were just talking about the vision, wed leave those last three words out. If we were talking an internal company discussion, wed put those words in. Its very hard to recall how crazy and wild that was, you know, on every desk and in every home. At the time, you have people who are very smart saying, Why would somebody need a computer? Even Ken Olsen, who had run this company Digital Equipment, who made the computer I grew up with, and that we admired both him and his company immensely, was saying that this seemed kind of a silly idea that people would want to have a computer. He was right. And not only did the first part of the phrase come true, the last three words running Microsoft software did too. From the mid-90s and for the next decade, there was, effectively, a computer on every desk and in every home running Microsoft software. At least 95 percent of them were running the Windows operating system, and among the rest, most were Macs running Internet Explorer and probably Microsoft Office too. Windows was almost everywhere, and Microsoft was everywhere. Peak Microsoft was unfathomably pervasive. They won so thoroughly that Steve Jobs conceded that theyd won, telling Wired in February 1996: The desktop computer industry is dead. Innovation has virtually ceased. Microsoft dominates with very little innovation. Thats over. Apple lost. The desktop market has entered the dark ages, and its going to be in the dark ages for the next 10 years, or certainly for the rest of this decade. Steve Fucking Jobs said that. He was exactly right. And who knows where wed be today if Jobs and Next had not been reunified with Apple the next year. A computer on every desk and in every home was incredible foresight for 1977. It carried Microsoft for 25 years of growth. But once that goal was achieved, I dont think they knew where to go. They were like the dog that caught the car. They spent a lot of time and energy on TV. Not just with Xbox, which is alive and well today (albeit not a significant source of income), but with other ideas that did not pan out, like media center PCs and the joint ownership of MSNBC, which was originally imagined as a sort of cable news network, website, dessert, and floor wax rolled into one. What they missed was the next step from every desk and home: a computer in every pocket. Its worse than that, though. They saw it coming, and they tried. Pocket PC, Windows CE, Windows Mobile swings and misses at the next big thing. They werent even close, and worse, Steve Ballmer didnt even seem to realize it. Thats whats so damning about that video of him laughing at the original iPhone. Whenever I drudge that video up, a handful of defenders will write and tell me its unfair to mock him for his reaction, that he was actually right that the original iPhone was too expensive. But what should have scared Microsoft wasnt what the iPhone was in 2007, it was what the iPhone clearly was going to be in 2008, 2009, 2010. Prices come down, chips get faster. Software evolves. Apple had unveiled to the world a personal computer that fit in your pocket. That was amazing. That the original iPhone left much room for improvement is simply the way revolutionary products always get their start. Microsofts institutional lack of taste had finally come to bite them in their ass. While Ballmer laughed at the iPhone and presumably walked around with a Windows Mobile piece of junk in his pocket, Larry Page and Sergey Brin carried iPhones. Google never laughed at the iPhone; it made money from it by providing web search and maps. Google quickly became, and remains to this day, a leading developer of iOS apps. And it was Google that was fast to follow the iPhone with Android, slurping up the commodity-market crumbs that Apple, focused as ever on the quality-minded high end of the market, eschewed. I dont think it was ever within Microsofts DNA to produce the iPhone, but what Android became the successful fast follower could have been theirs if theyd recognized the opportunity sooner. The Microsoft of 1984, a decade away from industry dominance, wrote software for the original Mac, and learned from it. When Bill Gates first saw a Mac, he didnt laugh he wanted to know how it worked, right down to specific details, like the smooth animation of its mouse cursor. No company today has reach or influence anything like what Microsoft had during the golden era of the PC. Not Apple, not Google, and not Microsoft itself. I dont think Ballmer ever came to grips with that. Ballmers view of the company solidified when it dominated the entire industry, and he never adjusted. Hence Windows 8. One OS for all PCs, traditional and tablet alike, because thats the only way for Windows to run almost all of them, and Windows running almost all PCs is the way things ought to be. Rather than accept a world where Windows persisted as merely one of several massively popular personal computing platforms, and focus on making Windows as it was better for people who want to use desktop and notebook PCs, Microsoft forged ahead with a design that displeased traditional PC users and did little to gain itself a foothold in the burgeoning tablet market. It was easy to see. Windows 8s design wasnt what was best for any particular device, but instead what seemed best for Ballmers Windows everywhere vision of the industry and Microsofts rightful place atop it. Horace Dediu captures the change in the industry wrought by iOS and Android in this succinct (and, as usual, well-illustrated) piece from a few months ago, writing: If we include all iOS and Android devices the computing market in Q3 2008 was 92 million units of which Windows was 90%, whereas in Q3 2013 it was 269 million units of which Windows was 32%. Thats a startling change, and Ballmer never seemed to accept it. Windows 8 wasnt designed to adjust to the new world; it was designed to turn back the clock to the old one. ··· I think its a very good sign that Satya Nadella comes from Microsofts server group. As my colleague Brent Simmons wrote today: Creating services for iOS apps doesnt sound at all like the Microsoft I used to know. Using Node.js and JavaScript doesnt sound like that Microsoft. The old Microsoft would create services for their OSes only and youd have to use Visual Studio. Theres still a lot of the old Microsoft there, the Windows, Office, Exchange, and Sharepoint (WOES) company. Its most of the company by far, surely. (I just made up the acronym WOES. It fits.) But in the Azure group, at least, theres recognition that Microsoft cant survive on lock-in, that those days are in the past. Even if you dont choose to use Microsofts cloud services, I hope you can agree on two things: that competition is good, and that Azures support-everything policy is the best direction for the future of the company. In short, Nadellas Server division is the one part of Microsoft that seems designed for, and part of, the post-iOS, post-Android state of the industry. A division pushing toward the future, not the past. Successful companies tend to be true to themselves. The old Microsofts Windows and Office everywhere, on every device strategy was insanely ambitious, but also true to their culture. Apple has grown to eclipse Microsoft in financial size, but never set its sights on Microsoft-ian market share size. Google is unfocused at the edges, but its never tried to act like any company other than Google. Google makes operating systems and office applications, but in a decidedly Google-y way. The last thing Microsoft should do is attempt to be like Apple or Google. Cloud computing is one potential path forward. The cloud is nascent, like the PC industry of 1980. In 30 years well look back at our networked infrastructure of today and laugh, wondering how we got a damn thing done. The world is in need of high-quality, reliable, developer-friendly, trustworthy, privacy-guarding cloud computing platforms. Apple and Google each have glaring (and glaringly different) holes among that list of adjectives. Satya Nadella needs to find Microsofts new a computer on every desk and in every home running Microsoft software. Heres my stab at it: Microsoft services, sending data to and from every networked device in the world. The next ubiquity isnt running on every device, its talking to every device. http://daringfireball.net/2014/02/microsoft_past_and_future
  15. By Norman Young 02-04-14 11:00 AM Satya Nadella's insider status has given him the experience to continue reinventing the software giant for the post-PC world, says Morningstar's Norm Young. As had been widely expected, Microsoft (MSFT) has named Satya Nadella as its next CEO. Additionally, Bill Gates has stepped down from his role as chairman of the board and now holds the title of founder and technology advisor, while independent director John Thompson will assume the role of chairman of the board. We remain comfortable with our $39 fair value estimate and wide moat rating. The selection of Nadella was hardly a surprise, given the constant leaks from insiders throughout the process. Nevertheless, we view Nadella as an excellent choice, given his vast experience, specifically with what has been the growth and profit drivers of the firm--the enterprise business. The selection of Nadella is also a signal that Microsoft understands the critical importance of the cloud and the commercial business to its future. Activist investor ValueAct was involved in the search process and gave its stamp of approval. Although some were calling for an outsider, we believe the selection of an insider brings some advantages. First, the transition period should be brief and relatively smooth, given Nadella's long tenure and familiarity with the firm. Second, the reorganization begun last year will likely continue with few disruptions--not an insignificant point considering Microsoft is about to take on an additional 30,000 employees when the Nokia acquisition closes later this quarter. Finally, we believe that as a "known quantity" the selection of Nadella ends much of the uncertainty both inside and outside the organization. In our opinion, the changes to the board of directors are also an incremental positive. John Thompson as chairman will likely bring a more investor-friendly voice to the board--a part of the job that Gates did not relish. However, Gates' new role as a technology advisor has the potential to introduce friction in the product and management workflows given the high level of respect he holds in the organization, should his views clash with Nadella's. Additional questions remain. We suspect any changes will be more evolutionary and less revolutionary, given Nadella's insider status. However, there are short-term moves that he could make to placate some members of the investor community. For example, since 2009, Bing has lost approximately $16 billion, collectively, $10 billion excluding write-downs. Even though shutting down search could yield instant profitability improvements, we believe its importance as a platform for the longer-term competitive position of the company will likely keep it as an important investment. Furthermore, Microsoft held approximately $61 billion in net cash and investments as of the end of the second quarter; Nadella could elect to disburse more cash to shareholders given the strong cash position and free cash flow of the firm. With the sudden changes over the past six months (re-organization, Ballmer's resignation, purchase of Nokia, Nadella as CEO, Thompson as chairman/Gates' move to advisor role), we think Microsoft is still re-inventing itself to better compete in the world of cloud and devices. Throughout these changes, financial results have remained strong, especially in the commercial business, with some signs of life in the devices and consumer business. Certainly, Microsoft has formidable competitors and is still playing catch-up in the consumer side of the business, however, we believe the Microsoft franchise--Office, Xbox, Windows OS and Windows Server OS, Azure, and data center products--remain well-positioned and help keep Microsoft's wide moat intact. http://news.morningstar.com/articlenet/article.aspx?id=633655
  16. It's no secret that Bill Gates isn’t short of a dollar or two. Truth be told, he really isn’t too badly off at all. Oh, OK... he's completely rolling in money! Earlier in the year he managed to regain his title of being the world's richest person, and throughout 2013 the Microsoft founder's fortunes have continued to grow. Over the last twelve months, Gates' coffers have swelled by $15.8 billion, increasing his fortune to a staggering $78.5 billion. While usually associated with Microsoft, Gates has also invested in a number of other companies that have helped to increase his worth. In fact less than a quarter of his fortune is invested in Microsoft. But a 40 percent increase in Microsoft's share prices certainly helped contribute to his fortune, and shares in Ecolab Inc. and Canadian National Railway Co. also added to the cash pile. But of course, Bill Gates does not just sit back and watch the cash roll in -- he is well known for his philanthropic ventures. In fact he has donated a mind-blowing $28 billion to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Source
  17. By Bill Rigby and Christian Plumb SEATTLE/NEW YORK Thu Jan 9, 2014 5:51am EST The Microsoft logo is seen at their offices in Bucharest March 20, 2013.Credit: Reuters/Bogdan Cristel Reuters) - Speculation over Microsoft Corp's succession plans refocused on internal choices on Wednesday, a day after the leading outside candidate, Ford Motor Co CEO Alan Mulally, took himself off the list of potential CEOs at the world's largest software maker. A source close to the company said no appointment was likely until the last week of January or in February. The source asked not be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the process to select a successor to long-time CEO Steve Ballmer, who in August announced his plan to retire. In late January, many Microsoft executives will be focused on the company's earnings, which are scheduled to be released on January 23. Also, chairman Bill Gates, a key member of the search committee, will be at the World Economic Forum in Davos. For months, Microsoft watchers had pegged Mulally as the odds-on bet to succeed Ballmer as chief executive at the dominant producer of software for desktops and laptops, which has faltered in making the transition to the fast-growing mobile phone and tablet markets. But Mulally formally pulled out of the running on Tuesday, telling the Associated Press he would remain at Ford through 2014. It was unclear whether Mulally's withdrawal from consideration was his decision or Microsoft's. While the company's intentions remained a guessing game, internal candidates now seemed the obvious ones, especially in light of comments by Microsoft about the importance of tech know-how for the top job. Mulally appeared to be the front runner in the latter part of last year and seemed to be interested in the job, but Microsoft never made him an offer, suggesting that the prevailing mood on the company's board was that he was not right for the job, two sources familiar with the process said. The sources have also told Reuters that Microsoft is down to a "handful" of candidates, including insiders Satya Nadella, executive vice president of the Cloud & Enterprise group and Tony Bates, executive vice president of Business Development and Evangelism. Former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, a Microsoft veteran before moving to Nokia, whose mobile phone business Microsoft bought last year, has also been cited as a top candidate, as have one or more outsiders from the tech industry. As a former Microsoft executive who will soon rejoin the company when the takeover is complete, Elop was mentioned as now "front and center" of the CEO race in a research note from FBR analyst Daniel Ives, who cited his "previous Microsoft experience and demonstrable expertise in the mobile space." Evercore analyst Kirk Materne saw it differently, naming Nadella and Bates as the leading internal candidates who "could potentially institute organizational change at a more rapid pace given their insider status." Microsoft shares, which have gained 36 percent over the past year, were down 1.2 percent, while Ford shares gained about the same amount. 'DARK HORSE' IN THE RUNNING? Nomura's Rick Sherlund labeled Mulally's withdrawal as "disappointing" in a research note, echoing the sentiment of some other investors and analysts. Sherlund said it was unclear who the board would turn to, saying he viewed Bates and Nadella as capable, but "more likely to take direction from Microsoft's board rather than redirect the board and take the company in a different direction as we prefer." If the company does opt to go with an outsider, candidates could include Facebook Inc Chief Operator Officer Sheryl Sandberg, VMware Inc CEO Pat Gelsinger and Pivotal CEO Paul Maritz, Ives said. Sherlund agreed that Microsoft could still look at a "dark horse" outsider but noted that some tech sector candidates, including Maritz, may have already declined to take the job. In a blog post on the company's website in December, Microsoft lead independent director John Thompson emphasized the need for a CEO with good tech bona fides and "an ability to lead a highly technical organization and work with top technical talent." Thompson, who leads the four-member CEO search committee, said at the time he expected the panel to reach a decision "in the early part of 2014."

  18. Microsoft already sent an email to owners of Zune devices in August to tell them that Microsoft Points would no longer be supported by the Zune Marketplace. Today, the company sent out yet another email, this time confirming that the remaining Zune Marketplace users won't be able to purchase or rent content from the service, or even browse movies and TV shows, as early as Nov. 22. The email, which can also be viewed on the web, states that any previously purchased content on Zune Marketplace can still be viewed on Microsoft's Xbox Video service. Xbox Video is currently available on the Xbox 360, along with PCs that have Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 installed. Of course, Xbox Video will also be available for the launch of the Xbox One on Nov. 22 and Microsoft will launch a web-based version on that same day. Xbox Video will also launch for Windows Phone 8 devices sometime before the end of 2013. This latest email comes just a few days after Microsoft announced it would end Xbox Video support for Windows Phone 7 smartphones as well as the Zune PC client and all Zune devices, sometime towards the end of February 2014.

  19. If you asked a regular consumer their thoughts on Windows 8, they'd probably turn around and say things like 'Rubbish', why? Because everyone else says it. The same happened with Windows Vista. While Windows Vista was indeed troublesome in the beginning, Service Pack 2 changed that, but as Windows Vista was already named the worst OS, there was no saving the sinking ship. Some could say Windows 8 is in the same boat, many aren't happy with it, many are naming it the New Vista. Windows 8.1 will hopefully point things in the right direction, but there's a high chance its too late. If so, Microsoft could do what they did with the successor of Windows Vista, name 8.2 something new. Instead of building on an OS that's already been dubbed horrible. Microsoft may be planning to name Windows 8.2 'Windows 9' if Windows 8.1 is received poorly by consumers. "If Windows 8 ends up perceived by the general public more positively than it is currently, Blue's successor may end up as an 8.X release; if it doesn't, Microsoft could end up going with Windows 9 just to distance itself from Windows 8." - Mary Jo Foley. It's a good idea, as Microsoft have done something similar before. Windows 7 was built on the foundation of Windows Vista, but since Microsoft named it Windows 7, it encouraged consumers to give it another go, and they were happy. If Microsoft name Windows 8.2 'Windows 9', it could persuade them to give Windows another try. Of course, Microsoft may not even be planning to name the successor of Windows 8.1 'Windows 8.2', we'll have to wait and see. source What do you think?
  20. Microsoft reportedly stated at their company meeting on Thursday they don't plan to support Windows 7 as long as they have with Windows XP, as they hope more businesses use Windows 8.1 With Windows 8 only capturing a few percent of PC users so far, Microsoft hopes that the release of Windows 8.1 this October will have better luck in sales to both consumers and businesses. Meanwhile, there are still a lot of Windows 7 PCs operating in the world, but Microsoft claims they don't want to keep Windows 7 alive as long as they have done with Windows XP. As we have reported many times before, Windows XP support will end on Microsoft's side on April 8, 2014 after over 12 years. Part of the reason for supporting Windows XP for much longer than predicted was the failure of Windows Vista to gain enough market share. As a result, many people are speculating that Windows 7 will last as long as Windows XP because of the slow uptake of Windows 8. However, that's not what Microsoft wants to happen. Paul Thurrott over at Winsupersite claims that during Microsoft's company meeting on Thursday, Microsoft indicated that it will instead push for businesses to upgrade to Windows 8.1. The thinking is that Microsoft has made enough changes to Windows 8.1, including the addition of a number of enterprise-based features, that big businesses won't bother to hold onto their Windows 7 PCs as long as some have done with Windows XP. Currently, mainstream support of Windows 7 will end Jan. 13, 2015, with extended support (just bug fixes and security updates) ending Jan. 14, 2020. That's about 10 years and two months after the launch of Windows 7 in November 2009, but that's still not as much time as Microsoft has given Windows XP. Will this happen, or will Microsoft be forced to extend its support cut off date for Windows 7 as it has for Windows XP? Only time will tell for now.

  21. Following a court document revealing that Microsoft read the email of a third-party blogger to uncover an internal leak, the company this evening announced a policy change, effective immediately, regarding how it searches user data that is part of its own network of services. Noting that it couldn’t, in its view, get a court order to search itself as none is needed, it will instead add layers of protection between it and its own users’ data. First, the company will deploy a second legal team apart from the “internal investigating team” to vet the need for the data search. Following, a “former federal judge” will review the case, such as it is, and grant a decision. Microsoft will only execute a search into, say, an Outlook.com account if the retired judge consents that there is “evidence sufficient for a court order.” And the number of this type of searches will be revealed in the company’s regular transparency reports. Microsoft exempts its own employees from the above. If you are an employee and have data on any Microsoft service, consider it public to your employer. The change in tack is interesting given its speed – Microsoft came under fire in the last day or so. The online reaction to Microsoft’s admittedly legal search of the blogger’s personal emails and IMs has been swift and negative. We need better legal guidelines to protect user data from the service-providing company. That said, the boundaries that the company erected, provided they are extended and strengthened in the coming months, are at least a decent start. I say that at the risk of being too optimistic. Here’s Microsoft’s statement: We believe that Outlook and Hotmail email are and should be private. Today there has been coverage about a particular case. While we took extraordinary actions in this case based on the specific circumstances and our concerns about product integrity that would impact our customers, we want to provide additional context regarding how we approach these issues generally and how we are evolving our policies. Courts do not issue orders authorizing someone to search themselves, since obviously no such order is needed. So even when we believe we have probable cause, it’s not feasible to ask a court to order us to search ourselves. However, even we should not conduct a search of our own email and other customer services unless the circumstances would justify a court order, if one were available. In order to build on our current practices and provide assurances for the future, we will follow the following policies going forward: To ensure we comply with the standards applicable to obtaining a court order, we will rely in the first instance on a legal team separate from the internal investigating team to assess the evidence. We will move forward only if that team concludes there is evidence of a crime that would be sufficient to justify a court order, if one were applicable. As an additional step, as we go forward, we will then submit this evidence to an outside attorney who is a former federal judge. We will conduct such a search only if this former judge similarly concludes that there is evidence sufficient for a court order. Even when such a search takes place, it is important that it be confined to the matter under investigation and not search for other information. We therefore will continue to ensure that the search itself is conducted in a proper manner, with supervision by counsel for this purpose. Finally, we believe it is appropriate to ensure transparency of these types of searches, just as it is for searches that are conducted in response to governmental or court orders. We therefore will publish as part of our bi-annual transparency report the data on the number of these searches that have been conducted and the number of customer accounts that have been affected. The only exception to these steps will be for internal investigations of Microsoft employees who we find in the course of a company investigation are using their personal accounts for Microsoft business. And in these cases, the review will be confined to the subject matter of the investigation. The privacy of our customers is incredibly important to us, and while we believe our actions in this particular case were appropriate given the specific circumstances, we want to be clear about how we will handle similar situations going forward. That is why we are building on our current practices and adding to them to further strengthen our processes and increase transparency. Source
  22. Microsoft found a clever way to get Chinese companies to pay for its software—exactly what it doesn't need. Give credit where credit is due: Microsoft's new approach to anti-piracy in China is awful clever. Heck, it might even work. But by filling up its coffers on yesterday's technology and an outdated business model, Microsoft may end up winning the piracy battle but losing the war completely. Have State Attorneys General , will sue As The Wall Street Journal reports, Microsoft has enlisted unlikely allies to get Chinese companies to pay for pirated software: U.S. state attorneys general. Microsoft has tried all sorts of ways to cut piracy globally, and more particularly in China: Lawsuits, cheaper prices and technologies that seek to make piracy harder. None of them, however, have really worked to dent the estimated $63.4 billion in revenue lost to software piracy. That's why Microsoft is trying a different tack, one that still relies on the legal system but in a different way. From the report: Attorneys general don't typically get involved in overseas disputes involving companies from outside their state borders. But Microsoft, based in Redmond, Wash., has helped persuade attorneys general that overseas software piracy leads to job losses at manufacturing companies in their states. That's because foreign manufacturers exporting products to the U.S. can shave business expenses by using stolen software, gaining an unfair cost advantage over American rivals who pay for software, according to Microsoft and its allies, including the National Association of Manufacturers trade group. By blocking Chinese companies from doing business in the U.S.—unless they come clean on Microsoft software licenses—Microsoft might manage to generate a few billion dollars more in revenue. But that's the bad news. Microsoft's Problem Isn't Piracy Microsoft's anti-piracy efforts are a suggestion that it continues to fight the wrong battle. While Microsoft is tapping China to pay for its licensed desktop software, the world has moved on to mobile. There, Microsoft is a still a nonentity, as recent Asymco data on smartphone shipments shows: Windows barely registers in this chart. As such, Microsoft could squeeze China for the estimated $63.4 billion in lost piracy revenues and would still lose the war. That war has nothing to do with the desktop. It has everything to do with mobile and cloud. In both spheres, Microsoft's business model is irrelevant. Granted, pirates prey on Apple iOS and Google Android ecosystems. Within minutes of a paid app hitting one of these app stores, a free version is available on alternative sites. But even so, mobile app piracy is far less serious today than desktop software piracy is, in part because the major ecosystems are distributed through centralized app stores. Yes, some people get their apps from warez sites, but they're the exception, not the rule. The Real Problem Is Adoption In 2014, Microsoft's "license an app, get paid billions" business model looks antiquated. Apple sells a seamless hardware/software/cloud experience. Google distributes apps for free and then monetizes them through advertising. (How much of Google's advertising business is threatened by piracy? None of it.) Google's business in China is projected to scale with Internet adoption there. In other words, Microsoft's problem isn't piracy. It's adoption. And it's a matter of the company's business model. Microsoft understood this years ago. As then-CEO Bill Gates declared, on the topic of desktop Windows struggling to compete with Linux in China, "It's easier for our software to compete with Linux when there's piracy than when there's not." Bingo. Horace Dediu of Asymco captures this point nicely: Microsoft’s software licensing business model is severely limited in China because what it offers is not what is valued. Both on the PC or on the mobile device, what China values is the tangible. Software can be made valuable only if it can affect the purchase decision of hardware and it can do so only if it’s sold as part of an integrated product. Microsoft keeps fetishizing software licensing when the world has moved on to tangibles like hardware and advertising. Until Microsoft stops fixating on making money on yesterday's technology with yesterday's business model, it will struggle to become relevant for current and future users of its software—in China and elsewhere.

  23. Windows 8.1 isn't even here yet and rumors regarding the next version(s) of Windows are beginning to surface on the web. Today, a report from Mary Jo Foley claims that Microsoft originally had plans to release the next major version of Windows in Fall 2014, but this doesn't seem to be the case anymore. According to the report, Microsoft is working on releasing the next major version of Windows in 2015, Spring 2015 to be exact. We already know about an upcoming update for Windows 8.1 which is set to debut in Spring 2014, but this isn't an entire new OS. The 2015 release of Windows will be the next 'major' version of Windows, (Windows 9 maybe?) The 2015 release will bring closer both Windows and Windows Phone OSes, and signifies that the recent Windows Store merge rumor is indeed legitimate. Mary Jo Foley also claims that Windows RT and Windows Phone will be one OS by the time 2015 rolls around, which also lines up with recent rumors regarding the merge between those two operating systems as well. It appears that Microsoft is aiming to make Spring the new time of year for Windows launches. Usually Microsoft would launch a new version of Windows in the Fall of the year, much like Windows 8.1 and it's predecessors. source: winbeta
  24. Windows 8.1 is set for release as a free update to current Windows 8 users on October 17th. Windows 8.1 is set to hit general availability on October 18th. But did you know that mainstream support for Windows 8.1 ends in 2018? Those on Windows 8 will have two years to update to Windows 8.1, if they wish to be under the support lifecycle. Windows 8.1 users, on the other hand, will have Mainstream Support until 2018. For those who like to be 'in the know,' Mainstream Support for Windows 8 ends January 9th of 2018. Mainstream Support covers paid support (per-incident, per hour, and others), security update support, non-security hotfix support, no-charge incident support, warranty claims, design changes and feature requests, product-specific information that is available by using the online Microsoft Knowledge Base, and product-specific information that is available by using the Support site at Microsoft Help and Support to find answers to technical questions. Extended Support, which ends January 10 of 2023, covers everything listed above except you will not receive non-security hotfix support, no-charge incident support, warranty claims, or design changes and feature requests. Of course, those wishing to extend the "non-security hotfix support" can do so by purchasing an extended hotfix agreement, which must be purchased within 90 days of mainstream support ending. On a side note, Surface Pro, which runs Windows 8 Pro, will receive the Windows 8.1 update on October 17th and will see Mainstream Support until July of 2017. If you want more details on the support lifecycle, head over to the policy page. SOURCE
  25. On Saturday, Microsoft halted downloads of Windows RT 8.1 from the Windows Store, due to an issue that the company said was "affecting a limited number of users updating their Windows RT devices to Windows RT 8.1." While those particular downloads have yet to resume, Microsoft is now offering a recovery image for people who have been dealing with the problems caused by the update. The download can be found on the Microsoft Downloads website. The file size is pretty large at 3.7 GB and it also contains a PDF file that offers instructions on how to install the file on a Surface RT tablet. Owners of the tablet will have to have a USB Flash drive and a PC that's running Windows 7 or later to create the Surface RT recovery drive. After the drive is made, users can then insert the Flash drive in the Surface RT's USB port and follow the instructions on the PDF form. The download is labeled for the Surface RT tablet, so it's unknown if this file can be used for any of the other Windows RT tablets that are out there like the Dell XPS 10, the Lenovo Yoga 11 and others. source
