Microsoft details the many different Windows 10 editions

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

Ahead of Windows 10’s release later this summer, Microsoft has detailed all the different versions that’ll be available, including Home, Mobile and Pro. There are actually quite a few different versions being planned, so Microsoft is obviously trying to cover all of the bases. Most people will just need to worry about Home, which the company says is the “consumer-focused desktop edition.”

Windows 10 Home will be the version that ships with most PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s when the software officially launches, and it’ll come with all the goodies, including Cortana, Microsoft Edge, Continuum and Windows Hello, a new face-recognition, iris and fingerprint login feature. Consumers won’t need to trouble themselves with anything beyond that, though there are other versions for business and the like.

In total, there are six different options, with education, enterprise, consumer and mobile users in mind. The Pro edition will feature everything you’d find in the Home version, but also come with “features to meet the diverse needs of small businesses.” Microsoft says the Pro version is a great choice for any businesses that have a Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) system, giving users the ability to easily manage different devices, apps and security features.

What’s particularly notable is that Microsoft has decided to go back to the “Windows Mobile” moniker, dubbing the release Windows 10 Mobile, rather than going with the recent Windows Phone nomenclature. The idea here is to keep a consistent naming scheme across all the different versions, and ensure that Microsoft relays this is an all-new release separate from something like Windows Phone 8.1.

We’re still waiting on an official release date, but even when Windows 10 does come out, the phone version isn’t expected to be available until after the desktop editions hit retail channels.

“We are making strong progress with Windows 10, and we are on track to make it available this summer,” Microsoft said. “Starting this fall, customers can expect ongoing innovation and security updates for their Windows 10 devices, including more advanced security and management capabilities for businesses.”

You can check out an early Technical Preview of Windows 10 now, or, if that’s not an option, you can check out a video we made of a recent update.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
