  1. Microsoft Courier was a concept that combined two screens to fold over like a book, with a stylus for taking notes. We've already seen foldable phones that sport multiple displays, and Microsoft wants to bring a similar form factor to laptops. The most important element of a new form factor has to be its user interface. What's the use of integrating new specs, but the same old OS that adds nothing new to the end experience? To counter this, Microsoft could be working on a new "Windows Lite" OS that brings in support for dual displays. © PC World According to The Verge, Windows Lite's "interface will be similar to Windows as it exists today," but incorporate aspects of Microsoft's giant Surface Hub display and its Windows Phone Continuum interface. This means the company will focus on keeping touch as a primary mode of input. If the new software turns out to be a success, Microsoft could use it in single screen devices as well. Essentially, this would make it a direct competitor of Google's Chrome OS. The upcoming OS version is said to be the stripped-out version of the original OS instead of a completely new OS. © Microsoft Chrome OS may have a very tiny market share, but it has taken over the budget and low-end segment massively. For a normal user who needs a machine to access the browser, check emails, and complete basic tasks, Windows 10 is turning out to be very bulky. According to Windows Central, Microsoft is using the codename “Santorini” to refer to the shell work it is doing to make Windows Lite look and feel different than the Windows 10. Further reports from ZDNet add that Microsoft could also ship a dual-display laptop. © Microsoft This isn't the first time Microsoft has tried to create a lighter version of Windows. The new S-mode supports just Microsoft Store apps, but the OS carries along a lot of baggage from the legacy OS. Even before the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft had a brief stint with Windows RT, and it turned out to be a huge failure. This time around, the company is hoping to create a niche segment that offers a new form factor and bring in the much-needed portability features.
  2. If you looked around you right now, no matter where you are, there is a possibility that every third person you set your eyes on could be sporting spectacles. Yeah, some of those are prescribed glasses, others are mere fashion accessories, while some are wearing them merely to save their eyes from the 8-hour-long scare that awaits them day after day at work. Eyewear has been a raging fashion trend for the past couple of seasons as it is, but over the years, the aam aadmi has also been experimenting with his eyewear designs. This growing rage and a potential for a lucrative business in the optical industry was spotted by an electrical engineer working with Microsoft, of all people. © MensXP A need to build something of his own and a passion to be at the top in whatever he did, this is the story of Peyush Bansal who gave India its leading online eyewear portal - which has since changed how Indians take care of their eyes. An electrical engineer in IT, Control and Automation by degree, from McGill University in Canada, Peyush found himself in a happy position after completing his engineering degree when he landed a fancy job with Microsoft in the US after many failures and retakes. However, within a year of being there, and regardless of the great time he was having at the firm, Peyush decided to follow his heart's calling. He came back to India to pursue his MBA from IIM Bangalore. It was around this time that he launched his company Valyoo Technologies with SearchMyCampus as his first business. © MensXP SearchMyCampus was an online classifieds website specifically meant for students and covered everything from accommodation to books, part-time jobs, carpool facilities, internships, besides a lot more. It became a huge hit and motivated Peyush to explore the e-com space further. That's how he launched Flyrr.com which focused on the eyewear industry in the US. It was the success of this venture that finally pushed Peyush to redirect his attention towards the need to solve bigger, more pertinent issues that affected people on a personal level. That's when the alarming figures of the optical industry in India caught his attention. Peyush found out that around 600-700 million Indians needed spectacles, out of which only 170 million used any. With this data to fall back on and a desire to alleviate the consumer problems in sight, Peyush finally launched Lenskart in 2010. © MensXP Peyush went on to establish one of India's most successful online eyewear portal with an enviable product range that includes spectacles, sunglasses, contact lenses and even at-home eye check-ups for those who can't but wish to enjoy the best quality services and affordable prices.Peyush aims to conquer 50 per cent of the Indian market where half of India forms its consumer base. Move to 2018, and today they sell over 300,000 spectacles a month, with a 1000 crore annual turnover. © MensXP People, young and old know the name of his company and the valuable services they provide. Apart from quality goods, Lenskart today stands synonymous to great customer support, and this aspect about the company has its customers hooked. Hear it from the man himself, as he talks to MensXP about his riveting journey from being an engineer to being the mastermind behind India's favourite online eyewear portal, and how it feels to be a global name in the industry.
  3. Given the spike in cybercrime where the end users are the most affected, most technology giants are always focused on keeping their platform or product secure to avoid any untoward cases. Our internet footprint is extremely large and with everything getting online, we entrust a huge part of ourselves online. To keep their products clean, tech giants have encouraged bug bounties and welcomed white hat hackers in the last decade. This rewarding stance of companies has created a new line of hackers, who intend to discover cracks in the system and then inform the admin so that a patch can be applied. This way, the hackers aren't legally penalised for the unauthorised entry, but rewarded for being ethical. © LinkedIn / Sahad NK Sahad NK, who works as a security researcher with cybersecurity portal Safetydetective.com, came across multiple vulnerabilities that left over 400 million Microsoft users' accounts, from Office 365 to Outlook emails, open to intrusion. When these vulnerabilities are chained together, an attacker can take over any Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Store, or Microsoft Sway account simply via the victim clicking on a link. © Reuters "Immediately after finding these vulnerabilities, we contacted Microsoft via their responsible disclosure programme and started working with them," said Safetydetective on Tuesday. Microsoft was informed about the susceptibility in June and then a patch was in place by November. "While the vulnerability proof of concept was only made for Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Sway, we expect it to affect all Microsoft accounts including Microsoft Store," said Sahad. © Safetydetective A Microsoft operated subdomain "success.office.com" wasn't configured properly and the same bug was also found in Microsoft Office, Store and Sway products. Since the subdomain belongs to Office.com, a majority of the safety tools like anti-virus and malicious link detectors failed to flag it as unsafe. Even when clicking the link, the user was transiting through an official Microsoft domain. © Reuters Sahad, along with a fellow researcher Paulos Yibelo, reported the bug to Microsoft who, after fixing the bug, awarded them with an unspecified amount as bug bounty. "Anyone's Office account, even enterprise and corporate accounts, including their email, documents and other files, could have been easily accessed by a malicious attacker, and it would have been near-impossible to discern from a legitimate user," TechCrunch said.

  4. Microsoft has overtaken Apple to become the most valuable company in the world and the two companies are still battling it out for the top spot. This has come after a gruelling week for tech companies, where the stock for major tech companies has been recovering. Microsoft reached a valuation of $814 billion as of Tuesday, while Apple's cap was slightly less at $805 billion. © Reuters The two companies are still battling it out and Microsoft's rise could be credited to its continued traction with cloud computing. The last time Microsoft secured a lead over Apple was back in 2010 whereas Apple became the first company in the world to achieve a $1 trillion market cap earlier this year. Amazon shortly followed while Microsoft is yet to achieve that milestone. © Microsoft Microsoft mainly caters to business which has attributed to the company's rising stock price, whereas investors have punished consumer-centric companies. Both Apple and Amazon are down 23 percent since the start of October. In the past, Microsoft fell behind Apple as computing needs moved from desktop computers to mobile devices such as the iPhone. This made Microsoft's dominance in the PC market null and resulted in a decline in stock price. Having said that, Microsoft now caters to businesses and even governments with its Azure cloud computing platform. According to Bloomberg “the rise of cloud computing changed Microsoft's fortunes about five years ago. Under Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella, the company invested heavily in data centres and other infrastructure to run applications and store data for corporate customers.” Microsoft is now second behind Amazon Web Services in the cloud computing business, which has resulted in making the company one of the most valuable companies in the world.

  5. Many consider gaming consoles to be a thing of the past given the rising capabilities of mobile phones. But, the comfort and edge that a console provides continue to remain unmatched. It isn't as complicated as PC gaming and offers top-notch gameplay experience. For years, gaming consoles have depended on discs, and this could be changing for good. According to a report by Thurrott, Microsoft is working on a disc-less Xbox One. Slated for release sometime during 2019, the new unit would become the baseline Xbox One S with a cheaper price tag. This would be the company's first attempt to finally implement the "disc-to-digital" program. © Unilad With the disc-less console, the company will also launch a conversion program that will convert physical games to digital. Users shall be able to trade-in their already purchased discs for a digital copy. The PC gaming industry has long shifted to the digital medium and users prefer purchasing games online from platforms like Steam. This way, all the game data is saved in the cloud, multiplayer integration is deeper than ever, and the game is available for download anywhere. © YouTube Making the Xbox One disc-less would also mean the company can bring down the entry-level cost. Currently, the Xbox One S starts at US$ 299, the disc-less version could start lower at US$ 199-250. The Blu-ray disc drive has always taken a large chunk of the unit cost and elimination of the same would open up the product to more buyers. Going all-digital would also let Microsoft offer more services. The company feels a subscription model like the Xbox Game Pass has massive potential as the user can access more games at a fixed periodic rate. We've already seen how the subscription model has changed the music and video streaming industry with Netflix, Spotify, Apple Music, and more. © Windows Central As of now, a particular time frame isn't available, though the report says the console was first targeted for Spring 2019. Microsoft isn't rushing with the disc drive removal and treading carefully with its next line of Scarlett (next-gen Xbox consoles) line-up. Right now, the company is working on creating a more robust digital ecosystem so that the transition is smooth and hassle-free.
  6. Apart from the yearly updates on the company's latest Laptop, Surface Pro and Studio devices, Microsoft also announced on the most interesting Bluetooth headphones. The headphones come in light grey and will be available to buy for $350 (Approx Rs 25,000). © Microsoft The Surface headphones come only in one colour similar to the Surface products and will be available only in the U.S. this December. The headphones are slated to compete with Bose's QC 35 ii and Sony's 1000X M3 headphones. The Microsoft headphones not only offer premium sound but also has a unique feature i.e. adjustable noise cancellation. Users can control the degree of noise cancellation by turning the dial on the left ear cup. This will enable users to let in outside noise according to their own preferences. The dial on the right ear cup can be used to adjust the volume which is probably the most convenient way to use when compared to other headphones in the same category. © Microsoft The headphones are of course wireless that supports Bluetooth 5.0 but can also be connected to a device using the detachable 3.5mm cable. It uses a USB Type C port for charging which means it will juice up at a faster pace. The Surface Headphones also have support for a digital voice assistant i.e. 'Cortana'. Users will be able to give out hands-free voice commands by simply saying “Hey Cortana”. “They slip comfortably over your ears to surround you with spectacular sound quality and 13 levels of ambient noise control,” Microsoft's press release says. “Designed with collaboration in mind, there are 2 beam-forming microphones on each ear cup, 8 microphones in total, all helping you focus on the sounds you want to capture allowing for excellent call experiences.” The earcups also have touch control which can be used for playing/pausing music and skipping tracks. Microsoft says that the Surface Headphones can last up to 15 hours on a single charge (wireless) and 50 hours when using the detachable 3.5mm cable.
