windows 10 feedback

Windows 10 Technical Preview was made available to the public last week. For those of you who have the operating system installed, you should be providing feedback to Microsoft. After all, by joining the Windows Insider Program in order to download Windows 10, the idea is to submit feedback directly to Microsoft from the Windows Technical Preview and gain access to pre-release builds of the operating system. With the Insider Program, you have an opportunity to shape the future of Windows with your feedback. Providing feedback is not difficult at all and don't worry, you don't need to send any lengthy and detailed emails or documents, all you have to do is launch the Windows Feedback app and type a few words. In this guide, we are going to explore the Windows Feedback app and show you how to use it to provide feedback to Microsoft. First of all, launch the app from the Start menu. Once you have the app open, you will notice the main feedback screen...There are instructions along with images posted at windows8newsinfo forum.

Microsoft steams ahead with Windows 10 development

It's only been four days since the Windows 10 Technical Preview was released to the public, however that doesn't mean the build that was issued with the Technical Preview is new. Windows 10 build 9841 was compiled on September 12, which was around three weeks ago. That's ancient in development time, so it's no surprise that build 9855 was recently compiled. Thanks to the "preview builds" ability (which doesn't currently work) in the Windows 10 Technical Preview, users who are using the Technical Preview have managed to see some more recent builds of Windows 10. According to logs that appear when the operating system is attempting to connect to the update server, the operating system is seeing builds as new as a few days ago. Build 9855 was compiled on October 2nd, just two days ago. The logs also reveal older builds too, spanning all the way back to June 2014 with build 9778. These builds would differ dramatically to that of the Windows 10 Technical Preview available today...Follow Windows 10 development on our forum.

Unpatchable Malware That Infects USB

It’s been just two months since researcher Karsten Nohl demonstrated an attack he called BadUSB to a standing-room-only crowd at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas, showing that it’s possible to corrupt any USB device with insidious, undetectable malware. Given the severity of that security problem—and the lack of any easy patch—Nohl has held back on releasing the code he used to pull off the attack. But at least two of Nohl’s fellow researchers aren’t waiting any longer. In a talk at the Derbycon hacker conference in Louisville, Kentucky last week, researchers Adam Caudill and Brandon Wilson showed that they’ve reverse engineered the same USB firmware as Nohl’s SR Labs, reproducing some of Nohl’s BadUSB tricks. And unlike Nohl, the hacker pair has also published the code for those attacks on Github, raising the stakes for USB makers to either fix the problem or leave hundreds of millions of users vulnerable...For more visit our forum.

windows 10

There has been a lot going on over at Microsoft about the upcoming new installment in the series of personal computer operating system. Recently, in an event in San Francisco, the American-based multinational corporation finally went forward and unveiled its new operating system, which is named what many people didn’t expect; Windows 10. Optimized for portable devices and desktop PCs, we currently know very little about gaming implications of Windows 10, but it looks like it has something in store for Xbox One users too. Besides working to improve and increase the efficiency of its latest Xbox One video game console, Microsoft has been very busy on the other side developing what has been described as the “most comprehensive Windows platform ever.” After much speculation that arose in recent months, the company recently took the wraps off the next operating system in its well-known Windows operating environment. Officially naming it Windows 10, Microsoft completely skipped Windows 9 altogether...This story continues at windows8newsinfo forum.

DarkNet or DeepNet

A search, using a search engine like Google or Bing, generally returns some millions of pages for every keyword typed. You can try to estimate Internet’s size by thinking of how many websites would be there, if people are using ‘n’ number of keywords to search for information. This part of Internet is just what is visible. But there exists, within the countless websites, an Internet that is beyond the scope of search engines and general browsing. This is the Darknet, Deepnet, Deep Web, Invisible Web or Hidden Internet. This article explains this and shows you how to access it and precautions to take. As such, the websites inaccessible to normal search engines form the Deepnet. This includes websites whose robots.txt is set to prevent Google and other search engines from indexing them on the Internet, in order to exclude them from the search. However, Darknet (the term is often used interchangeably with Deepnet), is much more than just prevention of indexing by search engines...Do you find this intriguing and are left wanting more, well we have it at windows8newsinfo forum.

Microsoft Windows Patching

Updates for systems running Windows operating system and its products are identified as Service Packs, Hotfixes and Security patches. These updates offer a fairly quick and prescribed solution or a workaround for a problem in question. However, these updates regardless of their type should be applied only on an “as-needed” basis i.e. only when it is capable of fixing an issue bothering a customer. In addition, the update should first be evaluated before being installed. In short, it is not mandatory to install the updates right away. Security patches minimize security risks and other vulnerabilities. These are analogous to hotfixes. Microsoft, primarily offers different routes for obtaining client software security patches for its products. So, it is crucial that not only clients are retrospectively updated with security patches, but the client built areas too are updated for any new clients. The majority of security updates released are for client side (often browser) issues...Turn to windows8newsinfo forum for lots on todays announcements.

Microsoft offers first look

Microsoft Corp will unveil a new name for its best-known product on Tuesday when it offers the first official glimpse of its latest Windows operating system. The project, known for the past few years as "Threshold" inside the software company and "Windows 9" outside it, will likely get an entirely new brand, or just be called Windows, analysts said, ahead of its full release early next year. The name change is symbolic of a new direction and style for Microsoft, which is veering away from an aggressive focus on Windows and PCs, the hallmark of previous Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer. The new, quieter emphasis is on selling services across all devices and is championed by new boss Satya Nadella. The switch also represents a desire to erase the ill will generated by Windows 8, an ambitious attempt to redesign Windows with tablet users in mind, which ended up annoying and confusing the core market of customers who use mice and keyboards...Learn about some of the new features in this up coming iteration on our forum.
