Windows 8 to be Unveiled Tuesday 13th Sept, Watch it Live


Posted on Windows 8 News, Rumors & Tips

We’re now only one day away from finding out what Microsoft really intend for Windows 8 to be.  Will it have the tablet interface by default and how deep with that interface go?  Will they drop legacy support completely?  Will the Kinect feature brightly in Windows’ future?  Well on Tuesday 13th September we’re all finally going to find out the answers to these questions as Microsoft unveil their shiny new OS during the keynote address of their BUILD conference in Anaheim, California.

BuildConference 3 Windows 8 to be Unveiled Tuesday 13th Sept, Watch it LiveThis keynote address will be broadcast online, live and you can watch it on the official Microsoft Press website here.  The keynote will most likely be delivered by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer who’s booming voice has become a staple of Microsoft press events.

It’s rumoured that we will see some of the first breed of new Windows 8 tablet hardware tomorrow too, including a new quad core tablet.  It is traditional that Microsoft show off some new hardware to accompany a software product, and I’m expecting that we could well see a Kinect sensor built into a monitor or laptop bezel for the first time.

The keynote address will begin at 9am PT | 5pm – London | 12pm – New York | Fri 2am – Sydney | Fri 1am – Tokyo | Fri 12am – Beijing | 9:30pm – Mumbai so you know when you can watch it in your locality.

As of tomorrow when this keynote is broadcast Windows 7 will no longer be top dog and it remains to be seen A) How the mainstream press react to Windows 8 and B) how stock markets react to the unveiling.  I have made my own predictions about Windows 8 (and the effect on Microsoft’s stock price here for you to read and comment on).

So will you be watching the keynote address live?  What do you think Windows 8 will be and do you even like the noises coming out of Redmond?

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
The end of HomeGroup

Microsoft Reportedly Replacing With Office 365

Microsoft might be thinking about replacing the technology and user interface of with Office 365 if a new report is to be believed. Apparently the company will be migrating all users to Office 365 at some point later this year. Office 365 brings other services as well which include Outlook Web Access. The question that surely must be on everyone’s mind is that why is Microsoft doing this? According to The Verge the reason behind this migration is to make sure that Microsoft Outlook, Exchange and Office 365 platforms are perfectly aligned. In favor of keeping things consistent Microsoft is going to go ahead and add the consumer to the mix as well. There has been speculation previously about impending major user interface changes for, Microsoft’s general manager of Office Apps Rob Lefferts suspected that much. It’s worth nothing that Microsoft hasn’t updated its consumer email service for quite a few months and it even showed the door to G…
