Maersk goes big in digital transformation with Microsoft

Ibrahim Gokcen Chief Digital Officer Maersk Judson Althoff Executive Vice President Worldwide Commercial Business Microsoft

Unlike the original Windows 10 series seen in the current crop of laptops and desktops, the new version does not require heavy system configuration. Microsoft said earlier this month that the apps will now let non-Outlook and Office 365 users to do things "such as easily tracking travel and shipping deliveries, making emails more actionable, helping you easily track your favorite sports events, faster search, and more".

As The Verge points out, this feature was supposed to roll out with the Windows 10 Creators Update.

With the release of Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system a couple years back, the Redmond giant phased out the renowned (but mocked) Internet Explorer with its latest offering - Edge.

Does Windows 10 need antivirus software?

Others may not want to adopt PCs that run Windows 10 Cloud right away, however, because it's the first version of the OS.

So far with Windows 10, Microsoft has been treating its Edge browser similarly to how Apple handles Safari on macOS and iOS, with major updates all being tied in to major OS feature changes. This means, essentially, that Edge updates can only be distributed to Windows 10 machines via Windows Update. To be clear, My People and the new integration of Gmail with Windows 10 Mail and Calendar are two of the first features that the company is starting with. With Microsoft focusing so much on this new category, it is expected the company will offer all of these Chrome OS features and pair them with its creativity and productivity features to help Windows 10 Cloud get Chrome OS users. "So, we can assume that Microsoft is rolling out the update with caution as they did the last time".

Samsung Galaxy S8 torture test has some shattering results
There is no word from the company yet and the accessory has to be purchased separately in order to get wireless fast charging. Some S8 owners claim their devices have a reddish tint to the screen, while others say they can not connect to WiFi networks.

It also includes an all-new Paint 3D app which makes it easier than ever to build and create 3D models and items.

We will have more on the Surface Laptop and Windows 10 S later today, so stay tuned for that. This smartwatch will be run any Universal Windows Apps. the smartwatch will have a 1.54-inch display and it protected by Gorilla Glass 3. In fact, the automatic updates are a core feature of the "Windows as a service" model, and many Windows Update features you might have grown accustomed to with Windows 7, such as the option to download updates and then choose which ones to install, are no longer available. Lastly, the laptop is tipped to sport an Alcantra keyboard, the same material that was used on the Surface Pro 4 keyboard.

We'll have to wait for a few more hours for the full details from Microsoft, but this Surface Laptop looks like a premium alternative to the Chromebook Pixel.
