Microsoft vs Apple part 19: Windows 10 vs Mac OS X El Capitan

Microsoft vs Apple part 19: Windows 10 vs Mac OS X El Capitan

By Rich W Woods It’s been almost a year since I wrote an installment in the Microsoft vs Apple series. The last one was Surface Pro 3 vs the 13″ MacBook Air, written on July 1, 2014. I didn’t even use featured images back then. Hell, I used to write my blog posts in Microsoft Word and use the Publish feature. Well, it seems like these days, there’s a lot more to talk about. Have…

Hands On with Windows 10 Build 10074

Hands On with Windows 10 Build 10074

By Rich W Woods Wednesday, after the keynote for day one of Microsoft’s Build conference, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10074.  Aside from renaming the technical preview “Insider Preview”, there were a number of changes to Windows 10. It would seem that Microsoft is finally going from adding new features to refining the OS and getting it ready for public release, or even getting it ready for a beta testing.

AMD CEO: Windows 10 Coming at End of July

AMD CEO: Windows 10 Coming at End of July

By Rich W Woods Ah, the things these guys let slip. Just a couple weeks ago, LG “accidentally” leaked that Apple would be releasing an 8K iMac. Today, it’s the CEO of AMD spilling the beans on the release of Windows 10, and it’s at the end of July. Of course, it’s AMD, so if we take these words as fact, then we can assume we know when Windows 10 desktop is going to be released….

A Closer Look at the New Mail and Calendar Apps in Windows 10 Build 10051

A Closer Look at the New Mail and Calendar Apps in Windows 10 Build 10051

By Rich W Woods Last week, Microsoft launched a new Windows 10 Mobile build that gave Lumia users a plethora of new features. Two of those features were a new Outlook Mail app and a new Outlook Calendar app. The build was build 10051, which, oddly enough, was the same build number of the leaked Windows 10 build that brought those same two apps, although on the desktop, they’re simply called Mail and Calendar. I…

Windows 10 Mobile Benchmarks: Before and After

Windows 10 Mobile Benchmarks: Before and After

By Rich W Woods It has been three whole days since the nightmare that was Friday. If you don’t remember, for the first time, Microsoft had announced a release time and date of a Windows 10 build. The time came, we all had server errors, and the system went down for about four to five hours. When it came back on, some couldn’t upgrade, some could, and some could upgrade to GDR2 and no further….

Microsoft Posts Windows Mobile 10 Help Threads. Don’t Use Them.

Microsoft Posts Windows Mobile 10 Help Threads. Don’t Use Them.

By Rich W Woods Let’s face it. Today was a disaster for Microsoft. For the first time, they made an official time and date that a Windows 10 build would be released and everything went to shit. There were server errors for the first five or six hours, and even after that, it was terrible. Out of the four phones I attempted to upgrade, one upgraded, one went to GDR2 and no further, and two…

What’s Fixed and Known Issues in Windows Mobile 10 Build 10051

What’s Fixed and Known Issues in Windows Mobile 10 Build 10051

By Rich W Woods I know the obvious answer to known issues. It’s that no one can get it. For the last hour, I have been trying to get the new Windows Mobile 10 build on four different phones, constantly, to an answer of “Server Error”, and in the rare case that I didn’t get a server error it would tell me that no new builds are available. Of course, we know everything there is…

New Windows Mobile 10 Build Now Available!

New Windows Mobile 10 Build Now Available!

By Rich W Woods The wait is over! We have been waiting anxiously since mid-February, often wondering why Apple can put out an iOS beta build every two weeks and a Mac OS beta build once a week while Microsoft can’t even keep to a once a month schedule for Windows Mobile 10. The new build is available for all Lumias running Windows Phone 8.1 (even the developer preview) except for the Nokia Lumia 930…

New Windows Mobile 10 Build Coming Friday!

By Rich W Woods It’s official. The next Windows Mobile 10 build is coming on Friday, at 10 AM Pacific Time or 1 PM Eastern Time. Gabe Aul appeared on Windows Weekly and announced that this date and time will happen and why. The reason is because they are releasing it on a lot of phones and because they had a lot of bugs to work through. Basically, it will be available on all Lumias…

Introducing Windows Redstone, Coming in Two Phases

Introducing Windows Redstone, Coming in Two Phases

By Rich W Woods Windows 10 is great, isn’t it? Well, what we’ve seen about it, or what we know about it is. Hell, it’s not even close to done yet. We know that it has Cortana, a new browser, and loads of cool new features, except for OneDrive syncing, which is rendering it completely unusable for many Windows 8.1 users. Before we even see a second build to Windows Mobile 10 Technical Preview, we…
