Microsoft Will Abandon Windows 8 Completely Next Week
Windows 8 was launched in October 2012 with much fanfare, but in the end, this proved to be just another flop in Microsoft's history. Often referred to as “the second Vista,” Windows 8 will reach end of support next week on Tuesday, so all users who are still running it must upgrade to 8.1 as soon as possible.

Although it sounds weird to see a Windows version discontinued after only three years, it actually makes sense because Microsoft considers Windows 8.1 a service pack. So it appli

You Will Soon Be Able to Control Your Home with Windows 10
If you've ever predicted that Cortana might be able to control your entire home, and you'll simply have everything around you work with voice commands, you sir might be a fortune teller.

Because that's what Microsoft is very close to doing with Windows 10, Cortana, and its IoT push, as the company has recently joined forces with Samsung for what could be revolutionary home technology.

At CES 2015, Samsung and Microsoft demonstrated how the two companies are supporting the IoT effort

Opera 36 will be the last for Windows XP and Vista
Opera Software announced yesterday that Opera 36 will be the last version of the web browser  for Windows XP and Windows Vista, and that all future versions of Opera would only run on newer versions of Windows starting with Windows 7.
The reason why support is being dropped in Opera 37 is Google's announcement back in 2015 that it would end support for Windows XP and Windows Vista starting April 2016.
Opera Software, unlike Google, plans to maintain Opera 36, the last compatible version for

This is the new addons.mozilla.org style that will go live soon
Mozilla plans to release a new style for addons.mozilla.org (AMO) when Firefox 48 hits the stable channel which, if things go as planned, will be on August 2, 2016.

It is rather surprising that Mozilla neglected AMO for the most part. The last major change that took place on the main hub for all things Firefox add-ons dates back to 2011.

Surprising, because one of Firefox's greatest strengths is its add-on ecosystem and the extensions that are created for the web browser.

Don’t open local PDFs in Edge, you will lose all tabs
For some time now I have experienced a strange issue when using Microsoft's Edge web browser on a Windows 10 machine.

The browser, configured to reload all tabs from the last browsing session on start, would lose all open tabs occasionally.

I first thought that this was my doing, that I somehow, without realizing it, hit the wrong button or something which made Edge forget about the previous browsing session, but after being very careful about it, I was sure that this was not my doing.

A Joke you must read and will relate to
When the Lord made man, all the parts of the body argued over who would be boss.  :dodgy:

The brain explained that since it controlled all the parts of the body, it should be boss. 

The legs argued that since they took man wherever he wanted to go, they should be boss. 

The stomach countered with the explanation that since he digested all the food, he should be boss. 

The eyes said that without them man would be helpless, so they should be boss. 

Then the asshole applied for the

Windows 10 Users Will Soon Be Able to Send Phone Text Messages from PCs
Microsoft brings PCs and smartphones closer together

Microsoft has confirmed that future Windows 10 builds would bring a new feature to insiders (and to retail users with the Anniversary Update in the summer) that will allow them to send SMS messages from their phones using only their desktops.

One of the objectives that Microsoft wants to accomplish with Windows 10 is to bring together PCs and mobile phones and this is one of the reasons the company talks about all devices r
