Watch this: Android Wear out, Windows 95 in

Windows 95 Android Wear When users booted into their Windows 95 desktops for the first time back in 1995, I imagine that there was quite an air of excitement in the room. Internet Explorer 1.0 came bundled with the OS for the first time, and at the dawn of the dial-up era, the internet was now finally a consumer possibility. Roll on 20 years, and technology has grown so voracious that Windows 95 can now run on a user's wrist. This is both a product ...

Windows 10 Technical Preview available to download today, here’s how to get it

Win 10 Tech Preview 1 It's the moment we've been waiting for since everyone realised how awful Windows 8 is. Windows 10, Microsoft's apology letter to its disgruntled desktop and enterprise users, goes live today. Well, the Technical Preview, at least. Users who sign up to the Windows Insider Program will have access to the operating system, through it's pre-natal stage all the way up to retail release, and the adventure starts today. But be warned, your path is marked with potentially crippling bugs and a ...

It’s called Windows 10: Microsoft surprises everyone with unexpected name, improved UI

Windows 10 It has been a bumpy ride for Microsoft's Windows division since the release of Windows 8 two years ago, but its time of torment looks to be over. Finally. After a not-so-secretive lead up, the new Windows is here, but it's not what we were expecting. Unveiled today at a tiny San Francisco event, Microsoft's latest stab at this "operating system thing" was thankfully not made in the dark, because the world definitely couldn't deal with another poorly designed desktop OS. ...

Winning: Windows 9 may be free upgrade for Windows 8.x users

Windows-9-Preview-Build-9834-1410433937-0-0 Tomorrow could be big for Microsoft, as it launches Windows 9. With just under 24-hours until the company's biggest launch since Vista, Microsoft is trying to win back its fans in a major way, at least according to one loose-lipped official. How major? It seems that Redmond is about to play its "I'm so sorry, here's a cookie" card, by offering Windows 8.x users the chance to upgrade to its forthcoming OS free of charge. CEO and President of the company's ...

Is the Xbox One the best console for South Africa? Not quite

xbox one image The Xbox One is like an unnecessarily tardy friend, always missing the interesting part of the party. Now that it has finally arrived, it's too late, because the PS4 is already rapping and dancing to MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This." And frankly, it's difficult to see how the Xbox One draw attention away from that. Ready for #XboxOne South Africa? It's available tomorrow in select retail stores across the country. pic.twitter.com/dtr1C8RDN5 — Microsoft SA (@MicrosoftSA) September 22, 2014 After South African gamers have ...

In the wee hours of tomorrow morning, the retailer will award the first ten buyers of the "must have" Xbox One bundle at each store, a R1000 voucher each, as well as a 10% discount on any other ...

Microsoft to hold ‘Windows 9′ event 30 September

windows 9 invite We've seen the leaks, the shoddy screenshots and the German-techno desktop recordings, but now Microsoft has announced a "Windows event" that will likely see the unveiling of the company's latest operating system. Emails came buzzing out of Redmond yesterday, with a note a little less coy than Apple's terrible attempt. We're guaranteed to see the new version of Windows in action, at least according to the invite. For now, we don't know what it's going to be called. Anything from Windows 9, ...

Microsoft’s Windows 9 Technical Preview leaked in bevy of screenshots

Windows-9-Preview-Build-9834-1410433937-0-0 Update: As if this couldn't get any better. The same site that leaked the pile of purported screenshots has just leaked a video of the OS in action. We wondered how the start tiles would operate alongside the returning start menu, and it seems "Pin to Start" functionality will overlap quite a bit. Additionally, the new animations are crisp and swift, which should benefit underpowered machines. But we have vastly polarised opinions in the office about the fledgeling OS, but what ...

Is Microsoft about to buy Mojang, Minecraft for $2-billion?

Minecraft maps The last thing Microsoft bought didn't exactly work out too well. The company found itself in a massive spiral of loss which resulted in cutting numerous services and jobs from its payroll. Perhaps this is why Redmond is lining up a US$2-billion move for Minecraft creator Mojang AB. The deal, according to WSJ at least, "could be signed as early as this week", quoting sources familiar with the matter. With Microsoft's extensive gaming reach thanks to its Xbox boquet, gaming consoles and ...
