Windows 10 Creators Update Dropping on April 11

Microsoft has been very open about the Windows 10 Creators Update. The company announced the feature update last year and has revealed virtually all of its features through previews. However, Microsoft has been coy on exactly when the Creators Update will launch. According to MSPU, the update will start rolling out on April 11.
At launch and over the proceeding months, Microsoft has been vague about specific dates. Indeed, all the company has done is promise a spring 2017 launch for the Windows 10 Creators Update.
MSPU says it has three separate sources who say Microsoft will start the roll out on April 11. Of course, despite Microsoft's silence on specific dates, we have known for some time that the Creators Update would drop in April.
Dell confirmed at CES in January that the update would drop next months. However, MSPU has now added a more concrete date.
An April launch has seemed likely since Microsoft announced its Build 2017 conference will kick off May 10. By time Build gets underway, the company would surely want the Creators Update roll out to be in progress.
Build 2017 will be used to talk about future builds, most like Redstone 3.

End of Creators Update Previews

Microsoft is currently winding down towards the launch of the Windows 10 Creators Update. The company has been previewing the build for months through the Windows Insider Program. Now those preview builds are coming to an end.
This is evidenced by a reduction in new features shipping with builds. Microsoft will sign-off on the Creators Update sometime during this month. The final release will come shortly after.
The company is already well into development of Redstone 3. The next feature update is expected to arrive later in the year and could be fully announced at Build. One of the key new additions of Redstone 3 will be Project Neon, which is a UI overhaul for Windows 10.

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.

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…
