Microsoft (finally) delivers service pack-like Windows 10 1909

Microsoft on Tuesday released Windows 10 1909, a feature update that has little in the way of new features.Also dubbed "Windows 10 November 2019 Update" - the 1909 moniker noted its year and month, even though the release was actually 1911 - the upgrade was immediately available to those who sought it.(On an unmanaged PC, select Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, choose Check for updates and then pick Download and install now.)[ Related: Windows 10 November 2019 Update: Key enterprise features ] On consumer PCs running Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro systems not overseen by IT, 1909 will be installed only when the user chooses "Download and install now." However, as the current edition nears its support expiration, Microsoft will take charge and start an upgrade. Computerworld has forecast that Microsoft won't begin force-feeding 1909 to users until late January, when it begins upgrading machines running Windows 10 1809. (On Windows 10 Home and Pro, 1809 drops off support May 12, 2020.) Most Windows 10 Home PCs running 1803 were compulsorily upgraded by Microsoft to 1903 in the four months prior to the former's retirement using this mechanism.To read this article in full, please click here

Truebill can help you manage your finances—and it’s free to download

Learning how to manage your money correctly is a necessary step towards financial freedom. However, we always seem to forget about online subscription services that go unused.

Who has the time to hunt down every payment or fee that gets charged to them monthly? This is hassle enough for a single bank account, but it’s nearly impossible to do if you manage multiple accounts manually. If you want a refined way to track and manage your finances, you can download Truebill for free and start lowering your monthly payments today.To read this article in full, please click here

Gone but not forgotten

It’s the waning days of the dot-com era, and this pilot fish is working at a startup whose codebase is maintained on a Microsoft Visual SourceSafe (VSS) server. Until the day it goes missing.A programmer had decided to completely refresh his desktop computer development workspace by deleting the workspace files and then doing a resync with the VSS server version of the codebase. But for some reason all VSS users have root access on the server, and the programmer somehow manages to purge the entire codebase. Oh, did we mention that no backup was being done on that VSS server?From the things-could-be-worse files, we can tell you that other programmers had a copy of the codebase on their desktop computers in various states of revision, allowing them to rebuild the codebase on the server — which from then on had limited root access.To read this article in full, please click here

Google ponders shaming slow websites inside Chrome

Google this week said it may identify slow-loading websites in Chrome, shaming their developers to up their game."In the future, Chrome may identify sites that typically load fast or slow for users with clear badging," wrote a trio of Chrome developers - Addy Osmani, Ben Greenstein and Bryan McQuade - in a post to the Chromium blog. They used the term badging to refer to on-screen cues and clues. "This may take a number of forms and we plan to experiment with different options, to determine which provides the most value to our users."To read this article in full, please click here

IBM: ‘Mac users are happier and more productive’

MINNEAPOLIS – IBM stole the show at the annual Jamf Nation User Conference this week when it announced that Mac users are more likely to stay with the company and will be more productive while they're there.IBM’s happy Apple orchestra IBM CIO Fletcher Previn talked up fresh IBM findings that show those of its employees who use Macs are more likely to stay with IBM and exceed performance expectations compared to PC users.The details of his claims are: There are 22% more macOS users who exceeded expectations in performance reviews, compared to Windows users. High-value sales deals tend to be 16% larger for macOS users, compared to Windows users. macOS users are 17% less likely to leave IBM, compared to those who use Windows. MacOS users are happier with the third-party software availability within IBM — just 5% of macOS users ask for additional software, compared to 11% of Windows users. It’s possible these claims reflect some other difference between Mac and PC users, but with hundreds of thousands of IBM employees in the sample group it’s hard not to see some contribution from the choice of computing platform.To read this article in full, please click here

An exorcism at Microsoft

Satya Nadella has been Microsoft CEO for more than five years, having replaced Steve Ballmer in February 2014. Along the way, he’s made dramatic changes in the way Microsoft operates, doing things that Ballmer likely never would have done, including writing off, for $7.6 billion in 2015, Ballmer’s Nokia acquisition.But at Microsoft’s recent annual Ignite developers conference, Nadella took actions that killed off Ballmer’s ghost — Microsoft now is clearly Nadella’s company, and Ballmer’s influence has been laid to rest. None of the actions was dramatic in its own right, but taken together, they show just how little of Ballmer’s legacy is left at Microsoft.To read this article in full, please click here
