I have recently upgraded my Surface Windows 10 to the Windows 10 Creators Update. As it stabilises, I have been experiencing issues with my McAfee anti-virus security package. It kept getting disabled as the updates ran. Apparently it was a common issue as many reported their anti-virus packages not running on startup. This got me thinking; if I wasn’t someone with a tech background would I have noticed or even flagged it as I have done so as part of the feedback to Microsoft?!
Everyone likes a good prediction ! A while back, I have written a blog piece about levelling the playing field, in which I have suggested Twitter would either up their game or get ready to be conquered by Microsoft or Google; so I guess they have upped their game ! but for how long !
I have been to Gitex 2016. A large technology-focused exhibition that is held in Dubai, UAE. In spite the focus on consumers’ products and latest advances in technology in general; there were vertical days where they covered various industries and there was a day for “Digital Marketing” that strangely enough had more sessions about virtual reality and augmented reality than we usually see in events for digital marketing … or maybe that is where we are heading ?! So, it got me thinking and thus my topic this month; are consumers ready for VR, AR, and AI?
I could actually count a 100 but 10 is more than enough to follow up on my previous article about Tablet 2.0. I thought back then what the Surface and windows RT /8 would bring would actually be the next step for tablets and with the release on the 26th of October this year; Surface did just that.
I must say since I am no Apple fan (read my “iPad – not for business” piece) it was no surprise that I got really excited and very much interested in the recent reviews of the new Microsoft Surface tablet that will be ready with the new and improved Windows 8 / Windows RT. If you didn’t get a tablet yet; I would strongly advise to just wait, it will be worth it.
In the past weeks there was a story about Google accusing Bing of copying its search results… Apparently Google has been suspecting Microsoft of doing that and planted some gibberish keywords to see if they show the same page results on Bing and they did….. I guess the big giants are to keep clashing when ever.. but is Bing really a match…..
