    Now I think it’s time to do something like a pro. In my previous Windows 10 installation tutorials, I’m asking my readers to install Windows 10 technical preview with much care, because it’s a beta version and betas mostly have bugs in them. However, Windows beta versions are much stable than any other operating system, […] The post How to Dual Boot Windows 10 with Windows 8 or 8.1 appeared first on Techzend.

  • Windows 10 is the Most Audacious Release in the History of the Platform

    24 Oct 2014 | 8:53 am
    Through evolution, Microsoft sparks a revolution To date, most of the conversation around Windows 10 has focused on surface-level niceties like the new Start menu and the ability to run Universal mobile apps on the desktop side-by-side with other applications. These are important changes, to be sure. But other advances in Windows 10 rival and even surpass anything that Microsoft has ever attempted in the past. And with this in mind, it is very clear that Windows 10 isn't just another major new Windows release. It is inarguably the most audacious release in the history of the platform. read…
  • Microsoft Preps Partners for Windows 10

    Communication is the key to understanding It's no surprise that Windows 10 is coming, and that with this important release we're seeing a bit more convergence between PCs, tablets, phones, video game consoles and other devices. But for Microsoft's partners, Windows 10 is as much an about-face as Windows 10 is for Microsoft. So the firm has provided a set of resources for its U.S. partners that I think many others would be interested in as well. read more

    Ready to speed things up? Here at Microsoft, we’re rolling out support in Internet Explorer for the first significant rework of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol since 1999. It’s been a while, so it’s due. While there have been lot of efforts to streamline Web architecture over the years, none have been on the scale of HTTP/2. We’ve been working hard to help develop this new, efficient and compatible standard as part of the IETF HTTPbis Working Group.

  • Hands-on with Samsung’s curved future: Gear S and Galaxy Note Edge impressions

    Long Zheng
    14 Oct 2014 | 6:04 am
    Samsung Australia is officially opening a new “Experience” store in the heart of Melbourne tomorrow. This morning it gave media the chance to try out some new unreleased products including the Gear S, Galaxy Note Edge, Note 4 and Gear VR which the public will also be able to preview at the store. The company’s obsession with curved screens this upcoming product cycle has intrigued me from a usability point of view to say the least. After spending a few minutes with them I admit there’s no doubts there’s some part technical “look what we can do”…
  • Review: Bellroy Note Sleeve “slim wallet”

    Long Zheng
    30 Sep 2014 | 6:59 am
    A little owl banner ad has been stalking me around the web challenging me to slim my wallet. Their ad targeting is incredible since my wallet is indeed uncomfortably bulgy so I was eager to find out exactly how much a difference just a wallet can make. The people behind the ad is an Australian company called Bellroy. These guys pride themselves on creating slim wallets and even own slimyourwallet.com. The idea is simple, their wallet is specially designed to stack cards using less room than other wallets. Bellroy doesn’t believe in the one-size-fits-all strategy. Their range of six…
  • Optimising for the 0.33%

    10 Sep 2014 | 7:55 am
    I was browsing Apple’s new website today when something grabbed my attention. One of the screenshots on an iOS 8 page had an Australian address. “Oh that’s cute” I thought. As a designer, I understand the pain and effort localisation requires and I always appreciate the extra attention to detail, especially when it comes to localising bitmap images. I quickly started to wonder just how much localisation does Apple actually do for the Australian website (which caters to just only 0.33% of the world’s total population). So I docked the AU and US sites side by side…
  • The user experience of blowing hot air

    As someone who enjoys paying a lot of attention to detail and user experience, I’m always delighted by “they thought of that” moments when I come across it. This one took me 9 years to notice. A couple of days ago I was in a 2005 BMW 3-series and I noticed something different about the climate system. It’s winter here in Australia so the temperature was set to the highest and the car was obviously warm, but there wasn’t any hot air blowing out of the face vents. I was slightly puzzled, did a blower stop working? I toggled the face vent override button and it…
  • The 12 step process to download Microsoft SQL Server Express 2014

    Long Zheng
    16 Jun 2014 | 3:53 am
    The Microsoft SQL Server team has many goals. One of them is to create an industry-leading, high-performance, scalable and resilient database software. The other is to make said-software difficult to download. In previous years, the team has employed the confusing file-name strategy. But this year, with SQL Server 2014, they have done their best work yet. Step 1: I guess I want to “evaluate” SQL Server 2014 Express. The hip developer guy not using his ergonomic Aeron chair instead opting for a standing desk certainly looks like he’s enjoying his SQL Server. Step 2: Good to…

    I discovered at a hackathon a patented smart pill bottle invented by Josh Stein and his team at Adhere Tech. As stated in Adhere Tech’s blog post, the smart bottles may look like normal pill bottles, but actually send data to AdhereTech’s servers automatically. If a patient misses a dose, AdhereTech’s system immediately reminds the patient via an automated phone call or text message as well as on-bottle lights and chimes. If the system notices prolonged non-adherence, it can solicit feedback from patients via text or phone call to immediately understand the reasons for non-adherence,…

  • A closer look at Windows PowerShell OneGet - Part 2

    Rafael Rivera
    18 Apr 2014 | 3:10 pm
    In part one, we introduced the OneGet architecture and touched on providers, the components responsible for doing all the heavy lifting. Before we can dive into providers, however, we need to talk about OneGet plugins. The OneGet Core API supports a simple plugin model that prevents coupling by way of Duck typing. That is, plugins don't reference any OneGet specific types or bind to any assemblies on disk. Instead, they implement a lightweight container encapsulating a few methods and properties that will be called and discovered at runtime, ultimately exposing any providers hosted within.To…

    Like Raymond Chen, I spelunk around Windows during my lunch breaks. Today, I came across raw Windows Store XML -- the XML sent down to the Windows Store app on your Windows machine. I noticed immediately that it wasn't your ordinary semantic XML. Instead, the elements had been transformed into shortened, mechanical, almost alien versions, some comprising of only one letter.Here's a snippet of XML delivered as part of the Where's My Water? 2 page:<Emr> <Pt> <I>12c9d9c4-1b2a-4c79-8e36-5adad7c4d413</I> <R>360a98aa-87f5-4e80-bda8-01880c2dbd38</R>…
  • A closer look at Windows PowerShell OneGet - Part 1

    Rafael Rivera
    5 Apr 2014 | 6:35 pm
    On Thursday, Distinguished Engineer Jeffrey Snover announced the availability of the Windows Management Framework 5.0 Preview. In tow was Windows PowerShell OneGet, touted as the new way to discover and install software on Windows. But after digging deeper into the preview bits, it’s clear OneGet is much more than a collection of cmdlets.Let’s take a closer look. Windows PowerShell OneGet is a bit of a misnomer -- it isn't strictly tied to PowerShell. Instead, OneGet represents a framework of hosts, providers and packages with a core set of APIs at its center. Peeking behind the curtains,…

    So, a build of Windows 8.1 Update 1 leaked onto the Internet last night. Buried in this build are early bits of what's being called Internet Explorer Enterprise Mode, a feature designed to "improve the compatibility of websites identified by your company".There's not a lot to play with yet, but I tinkered with it a bit.It appears to work similarly to the Compatibility View feature first introduced in Internet Explorer 8. One difference is that Enterprise Mode can be configured to consult a list of Enterprise Mode enabled sites via a file on disk or somewhere on the network. This file could…

    Microsoft’s online apps are sporting a bit of a new look today with a new app switcher for Office Online and the Outlook.com Mail, People, Calendar, and OneDrive apps. The new switcher resides in the upper left corner of the online headers, providing a consistent and convenient place for app switching while taking up far less real estate than in previous versions. The familiar square tiles are still in evidence once you open the switcher, but they’re confined to a small box, in two rows, instead of lined up across the header: Once you’ve opened a document in Office Online,…

    Softpedia News (Bogdan Popa)
    25 Oct 2014 | 5:01 am
    Microsoft rolled out the new Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9860 this week, but as compared to the original testing version of the new OS, this fresh release is only available via the built-in update system and no dedicated ISOs are provided for download.

But if you’re running Windows 8.1 or any other older Windows version, such as Windows 7, Vista, or XP, third-party software to handle the MKV files is absolutely necessary, as the operating system does not have support for this particular video format.

    This week Microsoft launched a new digital TV tuner for the Xbox One, available in Europe the tuner is DVB-T2, DVB-T and DVB-C compatible so here in the UK that means Freeview HD. Freeview HD gives you free to air UK TV channels many of which are in HD, so that includes BBC One HD, ITV HD, Channel 4 HD. The adapter connects to the Xbox One via USB and you plug your aerial cable in to the tuner. Once you connect up the tuner the Xbox detects the tuner and walks you through the setup.

  • Completely Remove a Hyper-V Virtual Machine with PowerShell

    Jeff Hicks
    24 Oct 2014 | 11:51 am
    In the PowerShell Hyper-V module there is a cmdlet called Remove-VM that does pretty much what the name says. You give it the name of a virtual machine (VM) on a Hyper-V server and PowerShell will gladly remove it. You can remove 1, 10, or 100 VMs with the same, simple one-line command: Remove-VM MyVM –computername HV01. The cmdlet will also delete the VM from the Hyper-V host just as if you had used the graphical Hyper-V Manager to delete it. Note that the VM must not be running. Sponsored However, not everything is completely removed. When you delete a VM, the only thing that is truly…

    Windows 10 virtual desktops are maybe getting the lion’s share of media attention, but Snap and the new Snap Assist feature are potentially more useful. While I’m probably in a minority of people that find Windows Store apps useful on a Windows 8 notebook, lining them up side-by-side is much easier than trying to do the equivalent with Snap and desktop apps in Windows 8, mainly because it fails to do anything more than snap windows left or right, filling half the screen.

    One of my favorite Windows features  is window management. Specifically, the Snap feature is what I love. Windows 10 has improved it significantly for anyone working with a large monitor. Modern apps can also run full screen on the desktop. The snap feature is so popular that it causes envy among OS X users though they might not admit it. Apart from this very obvious and very awesome way to manage windows, the OS  offers a few obscure settings to manage windows better.

    In my life I have washed many things and I don't want to hear even one misogynistic joke about that. :) However, never have I managed to just wash what I initially intended to. It's because I never check the pockets for stuff. I find that as the most useless thing to do, especially in our country. Romanian money is made of plastic, so mainly it will do it good, condoms are rubber and are also wrapped up, napkins… well who has used napkins in their pocket?

Performance is identical between the repurposed Xbox sensor and the standalone Kinect v2 for Windows unit, but this option could save you some money if you bought Microsoft's console before the big decoupling. And if we're being honest, that Kinect's probably not seeing much activity right now aside from…
