  • Windows 10 Enterprise Fall update not showing up in Windows Update

    , spivonious wrote

    @blowdart: I'm jealous. We're still on Windows 7, and our IT guys haven't even started evaluating Windows 10.

    We all had to do a double take when our desktop guys said that they were testing Windows 10 for rollout in the spring (especially after we stayed on XP until the last possible minute). Of course, their "gold" desktop image is based on RTM and continues our practice of only buying individual Pro licenses. This coupled with continuing to ignore proper management tools in favor of WinBatch scripts and registry hacks really tempers the excitement.

  • why do win10 updates wipe my This PC URL history

    @Sven Groot: Probably because Edge isn't in their gigantic browser detection regex. :@

    @MasterPi: There's also some crazy compression magic that starts to happen as the memory manager starts to feel pressure. So, effectively, you'll feel you're close to the edge, but you still have enough for more applications than you think.

    I have 16GB at work and home, and I regularly feel like I need more at work with Windows 7, but not as much at home with Windows 10. However, if I add a VM with 8GB of memory, then things start to get tight.

    @TexasToast: Windows 10 has an Android subsystem that can, in cases where there are no dependencies on Google services, natively run APKs that are sideloaded. The best scenario is if the developer does do a recompile with some Windows specific extensions.

  • Surface Pro 4 Type Cover improvements

    @cbae: Good call!

  • October 6th ​Announcemen​ts

    I'd like to see some battery life specs for the Surface Book when it's not docked to the base. That and a TypeCover that fits it.

  • netflix on win10?

    Is it just me, or did they reduce the amount of time between episodes? I'm sure it used to be 20 seconds, and now it's 15. It's genius, evil, but genius.

  • Outlook 2016 - Still not able to render HTML emails

    , ZippyV wrote


    Word should not be "fixed" to support HTML better, they should just switch to Edge and be done with it. There is reason to keep Word around, not even when editing an email because: it's still HTML.

    In that case, they need to figure out how to turn EdgeHTML into an editor, which as TheTraveler pointed out, is much different than fast and efficient rendering. It may not even be possible in EdgeHTML without introducing the kind of bloat that killed IE, or forking it altogether and opening up to other kinds of issues in the future.

  • LOLz my Lumia 1520.

    @RealBboy360: Sorry, I realized I posted too soon. I've updated my original with some more details.

    From what I see on the specs:

    Snapdragon 810 vs 800
    3GB vs 2GB
    1520 has a little more mA on the battery
    1440x2560 vs 1920x1080
    removable battery is nice
    Seems like 950 has a larger bezel than 1520

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm not seeing much of a need to upgrade

    That's not quite a representative comparison. Try this one.

    Smaller battery doesn't mean less battery life due to more efficient hardware and software. The new processor is quite a big leap over the old one. The 950XL actually has a better screen to chassis ratio. In a phone a gig of memory is a big leap. The screen pixel density is much higher.

    Combine all that with stuff like Continuum and the iris scanner, and this is definitely a significant upgrade.
