Windows 10 is now available on Raspberry Pi and Arduino

Microsoft is aiming at making Windows 10 the OS for all connected devices, and now it’s aiming at the Internet of Things by releasing a build for Raspberry Pi and Arduino.
The developer preview for Windows 10 IoT Core insider will work with the Raspberry Pi 2, MinnowBoard Max and Intel Galileo. Otherwise, you can connect with other Arduino devices through Windows Remote and Windows Virtual Shields.
You can download Windows 10 IoT Core here. And though Windows for the Internet of Things is just getting started, Microsoft’s has already prepared some projects you can work on.

Microsoft Azure gets GitHub Enterprise support

Microsoft announced a new partnership to bring GitHub’s Enterprise tools to Azure during its Build developer conference today.
Although GitHub is popular hub for programmers to access open-source code, larger companies have taken to using the platform’s enterprise features for managing their own code.
GitHub recently began supporting Amazon Web Services in an update November of last year, so a move to support Azure as well isn’t a huge surprise.
Additionally, developers will now be able to open GitHub repositories right from Visual Studio or easily load the code into Visual Studio right from a button right on GitHub’s website.

Vorlon is a new framework from Microsoft that helps you debug Javascript on remote devices

At  Microsoft BUILD today, the company announced a new framework, Vorlon, that helps developers debug remote devices running Javascript.
Vorlon is a Node.js application you run on your computer and uses a single line of code to connect to remote devices, like an iPhone or Android device, and show errors from the running application on your computer.
The idea is that you can quickly test and diagnose problems on multiple devices at the same time, from a single dashboard. The project is entirely open source and developers can start using it today.

Adobe is contributing to Microsoft’s Spartan browser

Microsoft announced today that Adobe is contributing to Project Spartan in Windows 10, bringing improvements in the areas of layout, typography, motion and graphic design.
Adobe’s Web Platform Team provided its first contribution in the latest build of Windows 10, supplying a feature for CSS gradient midpoints. It allows developers to choose a location between color stops of a CSS gradient and is specified in the CSS images draft.
It also provided full support for blend modes, so that they now support normal, multiply, screen, overlay, darken, lighten, color-dodge, color-burn, hard-light, soft-light, difference, exclusion, hue, saturation, color and luminosity, just like other browsers.

You can take the new features for a whirl using Adobe’s Codepen example in Internet Explorer on Windows 10 by enabling experimental Web platform features under about:flags.
Microsoft says it has been making changes internally in order to allow others to contribute to the Web team in the spirit of “openness,” yet the browser’s rendering engine remains closed source.
Still, it’s good progress that the company is finally collaborating with outside parties on its browser.

Making Windows 10 More Personal and More Secure with Windows Hello

When we started building Windows 10, the team spent a lot of time and energy thinking about how to make computing more personal. We want your devices to recognize you, to understand what you’re saying… we want the experience to go wherever you do and we want you to feel a great sense of TRUST as you go.  We talked a bunch about these ideas on January 21, and today we’ve got another cool new “personal computing” feature to announce for Windows 10.

I’d like to introduce you to Windows Hello – biometric authentication which can provide instant access to your Windows 10 devices.*  With Windows Hello, you’ll be able to just show your face, or touch your finger, to new devices running Windows 10 and be immediately recognized.  And not only is Windows Hello more convenient than typing a password—it’s more secure!  Our system enables you to authenticate applications, enterprise content, and even certain online experiences without a password being stored on your device or in a network server at all.

So how does it all work?

Windows Hello introduces system support for biometric authentication – using your face, iris, or fingerprint to unlock your devices – with technology that is much safer than traditional passwords. You– uniquely you– plus your device are the keys to your Windows experience, apps, data and even websites and services – not a random assortment of letters and numbers that are easily forgotten, hacked, or written down and pinned to a bulletin board. Modern sensors recognize your unique personal characteristics to sign-you-in on a supporting Windows 10 device.

Which devices, you ask?  Well, there will be plenty of exciting new Windows 10 devices to choose from which will support Windows Hello.   And, if your device already has a fingerprint reader, you’ll be able to use Windows Hello to unlock that device. For facial or iris detection, Windows Hello uses a combination of special hardware and software to accurately verify it is you – not a picture of you or someone trying to impersonate you. The cameras use infrared technology to identify your face or iris and can recognize you in a variety of lighting conditions.

Of course, convenience and simplicity should never sacrifice security and privacy. Windows Hello offers enterprise-grade security that will meet the requirements of organizations with some of the strictest requirements and regulations. It’s a solution that government, defense, financial, health care and other related organizations will use to enhance their overall security, with a simple experience designed to delight.

Authenticating Applications, Enterprise Content and Online Experiences – Without Passwords

Today, passwords are the primary method most of us use to protect our personal information, but they are inconvenient and insecure. They are easily hackable and even when complex they are not effective, but most of us want something easy to remember, so we either choose a simple password or end up noting it down somewhere making it less secure. And, to be truly secure, you need to remember dozens of passwords to login to your many devices and services.

You may have seen recent press coverage about a single group collecting 1.2 billion user names and passwords from websites they hacked. This creates lousy odds in the hacker roulette for all of us – there are only about 2 billion people online today!

“Passport” is a code name for a programming system that IT managers, software developers and website authors can use to provide a more secure way of letting you sign-in to their sites or apps. Instead of using a shared or shareable secret like a password, Windows 10 helps to securely authenticate to applications, websites and networks on your behalf—without sending up a password.  Thus, there is no shared password stored on their servers for a hacker to potentially compromise.

Windows 10 will ask you to verify that you have possession of your device before it authenticates on your behalf, with a PIN or Windows Hello on devices with biometric sensors. Once authenticated with “Passport”, you will be able to instantly access a growing set of websites and services across a range of industries – favorite commerce sites, email and social networking services, financial institutions, business networks and more.

“Passport” also will work with thousands of enterprise Azure Active Directory services at launch, and Microsoft has joined the FIDO alliance to support replacing passwords with a growing set of financial, consumer, and other security services over time.  Windows 10 will also have industry-leading security and identity protection for enterprises, so they can deploy new Windows 10 devices with hardware necessary to use Windows Hello, enabling enterprise-grade protection of the device and more secure password-free authentication to enterprise line of business applications.

Using Windows Hello and “Passport” is your choice and you control whether to opt-in to use it. We understand how critical it is to protect your biometric data from theft, and for this reason your ‘biometric signature’ is secured locally on the device and shared with no one but you. It is only used to unlock your device and “Passport”, it is never used to authenticate you over the network.

We’re working closely with our hardware partners to deliver Windows Hello capable devices that will ship with Windows 10 and we are excited to announce that all OEM systems incorporating the Intel® RealSense™ 3D Camera (F200) will support the facial and iris unlock features of Windows Hello, including automatic sign-in to Windows, and support to unlock “Passport” without the need for a PIN.

We’re really excited about taking another step with Windows 10 to make computing more personal, and more secure, with Windows Hello and “Passport”.

*Windows Hello requires specialized hardware, including fingerprint reader, illuminated IR sensor or other biometric sensors.

Microsoft tightens Sway’s integration with OneNote, adds embedding and sharing options

Microsoft’s new publishing app, Sway, is getting tighter integration with its OneNote cousin today, as well as adding some useful features.
Sway now lets you directly import images from OneNote. To bring those in, you simply select OneNote from the drop-down menu on the Inset tab, then find your images and drop them where you’d like.

There’s a nifty “recently added images” feature that will automatically show images from your most recently modified OneNote documents. Alternatively, the “Notebooks” section will help you navigate specific sections of your OneNote files to find the images you want.
Sway previously supported sources such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, but OneNote integration makes sense – it’s certainly possible some users could be jotting down ideas and clipping images in OneNote they might later want to transfer over to Sway.
OneNote aside, Sway is also adding support for additional embeddable content from Office MixInfo.gramMixcloud and Sway itself. Yes, you can post a Sway within a Sway.

Suggested searches are also becoming more powerful with the addition of YouTube videos and tweets. As before, you select “Suggested” from the Insert tab to see what Sway thinks might be relevant to your post.
Microsoft is providing a couple new options for showing off photos too. There’s now a slideshow tool available for image collections, as well as a comparison slider tool to help you show off differences between two images.

Finally, there are few new sharing controls to help you control your Sway’s audience: You can now choose to share with anyone, only users with the link, or keep it visible to yourself only.
Microsoft says most of these features came about as a result of user feedback – it’s nice to see the company incorporating user suggestion. Sway is still technically a Preview, but it’s shaping up to be a powerful publishing tool.

Microsoft launches an Android tablet keyboard for Excel users

Microsoft Garage, the company’s project to surface tech experiments by its employees, has unveiled yet another Android app. This time around, it’s a keyboard optimized for use with Microsoft Excel on tablets.
The layout in Keyboard for Excel includes the 10-key numpad that is common on full-size keyboards and is essential for entering numerical data quickly. It also features a Tab button for navigating across columns, as well as prominent buttons with frequently used Excel operators.

The keyboard lacks a few features we now take for granted, such as auto-correction and gesture-based typing. Plus, it only works on tablets — and for some reason, the Nexus 7 isn’t supported.
This is the project’s fourth Android release. Microsoft Garage has previously released a couple of lock screen replacements for phones, as well as a Bing search app for Android Wear.

Microsoft’s OneNote Staff Notebook for Education app enables school staff collaboration

Microsoft has launched a free tool to help teachers and school staff to collaborate more effectively on curriculum development, administrative duties and internal policies.
OneNote Staff Notebook for Education lets education staff leaders — like principals or faculty heads — set up shared workspaces for teachers and administrators and enable them to organize and share internal information, event and meeting schedules, student progress, parent feedback, lesson plans and more.
The service can be set up and synced using Office 365 or SharePoint 2013, and users can access all content on the OneNote note-taking app across desktops and mobile devices.
The company launched OneNote Class Notebooks for teachers to distribute lesson content to their students last October. Microsoft says it is also working on similar initiatives for business users in the next few months.

Microsoft discontinues Facebook, Google chat in

Today, in an email to customers, Microsoft announced that it will be discontinuing support for Facebook Chat and Google Chat on the service.
The company blames the Google Chat removal on Google changing its chat protocol but doesn’t mention why it’s removing Facebook support.

Going forward, the only chat service available in will now be Skype.
One of Outlook’s big drawcards was integrating all these separate chat services into one stream, so it’s disappointing Microsoft wasn’t able to keep it going.

Why Surface Hub is more interesting than HoloLens

Microsoft's Unbelievable New Holographic Goggles and show more photo's Click Here!

By the time Microsoft ships their augmented reality headset, it will be an also-ran banality. Their re-invention of "desktop" computing is what really matters.

Microsoft had an unusually kick-ass event this week. They trotted out the next version of Windows, which is called Windows 10.

The OS looks like a winner. (No word on what happened to "Windows 9" -- my guess is that it wouldn't have gone over big in the German market. Windows? Nein!)

The company focused on compelling integrations between desktop and mobile versions of Windows, as well as integrations between Windows 10 and Xbox One

They trotted out a compelling new browser, code-named "Spartan."

But the clear hit was an augmented-reality system called HoloLens. (HoloLens looks like the virtual reality glasses depicted in Back to the Future II. The "future" in that movie was the year 2015!)

When you see the HoloLens video Microsoft produced, you can see why everyone was dazzled. Especially the press.

The Verge called HoloLens "intriguing." Ars Technica called it "magical." Gizmodo called it "incredible."

The experience was all these things. However, it's not all that interesting as a product. And the reason is that it's not a product. Not even close. Microsoft's HoloLens may be three, four or five years out. We don't know.

HoloLens is a research product. Microsoft has been developing stunning research projects like this for 20 years. I've seen Microsoft Research text-to-speech technology that was perfect, and could be spoken in anyone's voice. The demo did various celebrities. I've seen Microsoft Research projects that used cameras to create real-time animated avatars to replace video chats. I've seen Microsoft research that included a self-learning, artificial intelligence system that mapped dictionaries to understand the connections between words and concepts and thereby "understand" the world. And all this was 15 years ago.

In the past, they never showed off such amazing projects in public, nor did these projects move on to become products available to consumers.

What's different now is that CEO Satya Nadella has decided to boost Microsoft's excitement factor by showing one of their killer research projects at a major event. But there's no evidence -- zero! -- that Microsoft has figured out how to get their great research into shipping products.

By the time HoloLens does become a shipping product, such technology will be a commonplace banality. Dozens or perhaps hundreds of companies, universities and software developers are working on exactly this kind of augmented reality system, including a well-funded startup called Magic Leap, which is almost certainly far ahead of Microsoft.

If I had to, I'd bet that HoloLens will be the "Zune" of augmented reality systems -- nice, but far too little, too late.

Meanwhile, Microsoft demonstrated something else that was truly revolutionary.

Why Surface Hub was the real star of the show

The real star of the show this week was Microsoft Surface Hub, a 4K, big-screen Windows 10 computer for enterprises.

The Surface Hub comes in two sizes: a big-screen 55-in. computer and a very big-screen 84-in. device.

The Surface Hub can be controlled with multi-touch, voice, in-the-air gestures, pen and keyboard. It's got sensors galore, including two wide-angle 1080p cameras, microphone, motion sensors and touch sensors.

And the interfaces are advanced. The multi-touch technology, for example, can recognize 100 touch points at once and precisely. Five people can be touching it on one side while several people are drawing with the pen on the other.

To start using it, you simply walk up to it. The Surface Hub knows you're there. Just choose between three options: Call, WhiteBoard or Connect.

t's a Windows 10 machine, so it ships with Word, Excel and PowerPoint, plus the OneNote whiteboard and Skype for Business. (At minimum, it's a full-fledged PC, video-conferencing system, phone, presentation system, TV and white board -- it's basically everything you might find in a meeting room besides a table and chairs, including the assistant (of course Surface Hub will be a great Cortana device).

The Microsoft Surface, the tablet, stole its name from the Surface project, which was a big-screen TV. Then an app group stole the "Surface" branding for a pen-configuration app called Surface Hub for the Surface tablet.

Now, the big-screen people at Microsoft have stolen the name back by calling the new computer system the Surface Hub.

Surface Hub comes from Microsoft's Perceptive Pixel group, which has been shipping giant touch screens for years to the military, media and others. Microsoft acquired Perceptive Pixel in 2012. Those "Magic Walls" used by CNN are Perceptive Pixel computers. The CEO and founder of that company was Jeff Han, a visionary pioneer in the field of large multi-touch computers. Today Han is general manager of Perceptive Pixel hardware.

And guess what? Han uses his big-screen touch computer at an angle, like a drafting table, not on a wall or vertically mounted on a stand.

That's the future of big-screen computing. It's not a "desktop computer." The computer replaces the desk entirely.

Microsoft is targeting Surface Hubs at enterprises because they will initially be too expensive for consumers. But give it a year or two, and the prices will drop and consumers will start buying them.

I believe they will replace TVs or, looking at it another way, TVs will get PC operating systems and multi-touch.

It's worth noting also that only touch-computing and other close usage patterns justify any screen resolution higher than 4K. At CES this year, we saw monitors reaching the 8K level, which is overkill for watching TV. From a couch-to-TV distance, it's almost impossible to detect the difference between 4K and 8K. However, if you're going to use the screen for close-up use (as you can use the Surface Hub), the super high-resolution screens pay off.

The giant-screen touch PC form factor is a revolutionary new computing platform that will become pervasive in the years ahead.

For now, Microsoft's Surface Hub is more about work than play. But it's got one quality that the HoloLens doesn't have: It's a product, and it's shipping this year.

Report: Windows 9 Will Debut as Early as Sept. 30

Windows 9 may be coming even before you begin thinking about a Halloween costume. A new report says Microsoft will give the world a first look at the new version of Windows on Sept. 30 or soon afterward at a press event to announce a developer build of the software.

The Verge reports the date is tentative, but the general timeframe is the end of September/beginning of October. The software will be a "preview" version meant for developers, the report says, so it's unclear if the rumored public beta for Windows 9 would begin at the same time.

Windows 9, which Microsoft has codenamed "Threshold," will revamp Windows to address some key usability criticisms of Windows 8/8.1. For starters, it's bringing back the Start menu (which was "blown out" into the Start screen with Windows 8) and enhancing it with some elements of the "modern" UI. Also, modern Windows apps will be able to run within a window on the Desktop.

In the "rumored but unconfirmed" column, Windows 9 may also do away with the Charms menu, which has proved unpopular with users and developers (just try using the "Share" charm from any modern app). Cortana, the voice assistant on Windows Phone, is also expected to appear in Windows 9, although she may not be in the developer preview that's supposed to launch in the fall.

Representatives for Microsoft declined to comment on the report.
