Windows 10 is supposed to be so much more than an OS update. Let us dare to say a new way of life. It has a mission to run smoothly on all Microsoft devices regardless of their screen sizes.

For what is worth, Apple has the time of its business life. In 2014, the new models iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were the undisputed rulers of the smartphone world. In addition, during the first week in January iTunes apps alone brought $500 million more. So, what about people behind apples?
It comes without saying that Apple employees have no reason to worry about their impressive financial situations. That is even more true for the top managers.

Samsung has serious thoughts about the Windows Phone OS platform for its smartphones. What in the world is that supposed to mean? It is not a secret that Samsung has always looked for a way to ensure, let us say its independence. From whom or what? From Google and Android, who else.
Do not get us wrong. It is not all black and white in the world of smartphones. The things are a little bit more complicated. There is nothing wrong in a relation between Google and Samsung.

On the other side, Samsung is eager about Windows Phone, but it is in the middle of a serious patent legal battle with Microsoft itself.

And, we are where we are right now. This unusual love triangle has to end up this way or another. Samsung is a golden goose every mobile OS provider can only wish for. At the same time, Samsung cannot give you both hardware and software, just like Apple is doing, can it? Really tricky, indeed.

What is your first thought when someone mentions drones, or you hear about them in the news? You are probably imagining drone strikes in Irak or Afganistan. Or, even worse, you are seeing spy drones all around you. Either way, there are no happy and careless thoughts that can go hand in hand with drones.
When it comes to technology and humans, the business is as usual. What does it mean? Both technology and latest innovations are completely indifferent and tasteless. We are shaping them, and what is even more important, we are giving them the very sense of purpose. Do you see our point?
Finally, someone has figured out that drones can be used for something positive, instead of firing rockets or spying. How about rescuing people for a change? Imagine a rescue team, which launches a drone with a life saving set of tools. This would certainly make you think differently about drones.
As you can see, the story about drones is still an open book. Rescue drones are only the first step in the right direction. We need more of positive applications to change the tide and negative public perception. Drones to the rescue. We can get used to this life changing and saving idea. How about you?
It turns out that Microsoft has proven completely wrong all this busy little cyber bees, who thought that Windows 10 is to end the 32-bit platform. Why? What happened? Well, Microsoft’s officials have confirmed that Windows 10 will come with its appropriate 32-bit version. What is their justification?
For what is worth, they have found more than 100 million reasons for such a decision. Apparently, there are more than 100 million Windows users, who work in the 32-bit environment. You just cannot leave them alone in the dark corner of the Windows 10 angle, which is still under construction.
Microsoft has figured out nicely what it could mean for the business, if one hundred million users suddenly use the ability to use the OS as they once did. They could easily move to some of the older Windows versions, or what is even worse, they could ask themselves what is going on the different platforms, such as Linux, for example.
Now, you see why Microsoft is more than eager to meet its customers’ wishes. What other option does Microsoft have in a situation such as this one, other than to comply? Does it mean that all you have to do is to find one hundred million friends and Microsoft will make you what you want? Not sure.
