Microsoft speeds up Windows, so what does this mean for you?

Microsoft has revealed plans to speed up their Windows server twice each year - once in the spring and again in the fall, using the same rhythmic timing of the releases of both Windows 10 and Office 365 ProPlus. Analysts in the technology field say Microsoft must prove it can pull off sustained rapid release - "but if they don't, they don't." Microsoft speeds up Windows

Missing a Windows Server deadline would have the same kind of domino effect that balking at a Windows 10 release would produce. If Microsoft pushed back upgrade dates after a delayed release, the March-and-September scheme and synchronization with Windows 10 would collapse. But if Microsoft only resumed the tempo with the next slated release, the late upgrade would have to have its support curtailed if Microsoft intends to keep a consistent schedule.

iPhone vs Augmented Reality.

Have you ever gone out and enjoyed a new 3D movie and wish you could take the experience home with you? iPhone vs Augmented RealityAugmented reality makes that, well, a reality! Unlike virtual reality, where you can fly in the sky with birds, augmented reality lets you take a backseat and enjoy the birds zipping around you, rather than give you the feeling of flight. It's basically like a more interactive pop-up book that doesn't involve opening any books. Tech companies have been playing with this form of technology for years, and now a major player in the tech game has their sights set on this type of entertainment.

Apple has always been on the cutting edge of technology. If it's new, chances are they already have a prototype made before the information reaches the masses. But could an augmented reality product from Apple eventually become the death of the iPhone? According to expert Apple analyst, Gene Munster, it is part of the late Steve Jobs' plan of action. In a recent letter to clients, Munster has let it be known that an augmented reality device is next in line for Apple and that is may very well be the beginning of the end for the iPhone. "We believe that Jobs instilled the idea of innovation in Apple without the dogma of holding on to old markets that move away from you whether you like it or not", says Munster, "While Apple has yet to launch a product that cannibalizes the iPhone franchise, we believe that the company realizes that the smartphone as we know it won't last forever. To this end, we believe Apple continues to explore mixed reality and virtual reality, which in our opinion will be the future of computing."

Michael, you have done a fabulous job every time I bring my computer to you. Not only were you able to get viruses out of it, you were able to save important data and programs when the mother board went out. You always keep me informed of the progess/status of the work you perform on it, and you are reasonably priced! I highly recommend you for service and repair! Thanks again for the job well done!
