Windows 10 will be supported until Oct. 14, 2025 — unless your computer has a Clover Trail CPU. Then you’re out of luck.
Mobility and Wireless: Opinions
The nagware announcements are gone, but Microsoft, along with AMD and Intel, has made darn sure you’ll be running Windows 10 and not Windows 7 on the next PC you buy.
The real question to ask, though, is why this figure is so important to Microsoft.
The company is in the midst of a great transition, and current indications are that it is going well.
This week was Dell's Annual Analyst Conference (DAAC) and next week is HP Discover [disclaimer: I've worked with HP and Dell for over a decade and covered both firms extensively], but this year I'll pass on the HP event and will be at VCE's analyst conference in Chicago. Here's why.
Touch your pocket. If you're like millions of Americans, your smartphone is inside it. Can you do the same with your notebook? No, and you probably never will. And that's OK.
After years of Business Insider writing jerky linkbait headlines in order to sell the idea that Apple was doomed, you'll never guess what happened next.
Apple CEO, Tim Cook, unveiled the Apple Watch at a special event in September. The press was herded into a special tent to look at prototype watches running canned videos of what the watch might look like.
"Futurology has always bounced around between common sense, nonsense and a healthy dose of wishful thinking." That's how a 2012 Scientific American article summed up the history of prediction. Our compelling annual urge to predict the future traces back to the ancient Greeks and their Delphic Oracle--so who am I to argue with such venerable tradition? Here's my top 10 countdown for the shape of our industry in 2015:
The iPhone 6 lineup has introduced iOS users to new smartphones with bigger (and <em>bigger</em>) displays. I was ready for a larger screen, so quickly opted to buy an iPhone 6 last month, thinking it would be the best match. And indeed <a href="http://www.computerworld.com/article/2689714/iphone-6-deep-dive-review-a-major-new-step-in-design-and-performance.html">I found the iPhone 6 to be gorgeous and well-built</a>, and felt that the 4.7-in. display was right at the edge of what was comfortable for me.
It is with the deepest sympathies we announce the tragic loss of one of the industries greatest smartphones, Apple’s iPhone. Chief executive Tim Cook broke the news to Apple loyalists with the unveiling of larger screen variants in what will be remembered as a pivotal moment in the company’s history.
Every time Apple announces a new iPhone, the device has a few features and surprises that put the company's most profitable product ahead of the competition, at least for a few months. That's probably going to happen again on Tuesday.
If you're an iPhone or iPad user, you probably know that iOS app icons dance around when you tap and hold a finger on them to move or remove one. They do a little jig, hoping to entertain you and thereby save themselves from deletion.
As time ticks by and Apple CEO Tim Cook drops his latest hint about new and upcoming products, it's time to start looking to the next generation of Apple's iPhone. Based on the pattern years past, it's exceedingly likely we'll see the next version of the company's smartphone arrive sometime in the next three months. But what will that handset look like? What new features will it sport?
So Apple and IBM are hooking up. It's a match made in enterprise heaven, bringing together BYOD favorites the iPhone and the iPad with enterprise apps and cloud services from IBM. It's a win for Apple, which finally gets some serious business software chops, and for IBM, which gets device sex appeal.
One thing is clear about the Apple-IBM partnership: It will change the dynamic of the enterprise mobility market in significant ways.
The big news this week of Apple and IBM joining forces to dominate the mobile enterprise market makes a great story - at least on the surface.
Fitbit recently strengthened its iOS app with a new "MobileRun" feature for tracking exercise in real-time via GPS. It's a step in the right direction (bad pun intended) -- but not enough to help Fitbit catch up to RunKeeper or other workout tracking apps. (Fitbit's Android update is said to be coming soon.)
We can now count the days until Winter ends in September with the expected unveiling of the iPhone 6. Pavlovian-like, the iOSphere seemed to salivate over a renewed spate of rumors, as if hearing them for the first time.
Amazon launched a new smartphone this week. It's called the Amazon Fire phone, and it sports some unique hardware, software and services.
