Windows 8.1 Update 3 Delay

Microsoft is rumoured to be delaying the arrival of a start menu on Windows 8.1 with a third update due next year including the oft-requested feature and it will have a knock on effect on the release date of Windows 9 “Threshold”. Tom’s Hardware quotes unnamed sources that state a third refresh, unofficially called Windows 8.1 Update 3, will arrive in Spring 2015 and come with a start menu that was supposed to be included in the imminent Windows 8.1 Update 2. Spring 2015 was meant to see the release of Windows 9 “Threshold” and the same sources reported that it is being pushed back until Q2 or Q3 2015 as a result of the new Windows 8.1 update. Narrowing it down to certain months, it means that Update 3 gets an April 2015 release and Windows 9 will see the light of day in June 2015. When it comes to Update 2, prolific leaker WZOR reports that it will be delivered free of charge to Windows 8.1 Update 1 users and other Windows owners offered it at an “affordable price”...If you visit our forum I feel certain you will find more.

Buy Windows 8.1 Update 2
This was interesting when we first heard about it, it is still interesting now. According to reports, Microsoft is preparing a paid option for users that want to upgrade to Windows 8.1 Update 2. Last we heard, the company was contemplating offering this version to Windows 8 users with a small fee if they wanted to directly upgrade to the latest version of the operating system — without the hassle of first installing Windows 8.1 and then Windows 8.1 Update. The latest on the grapevine is that this continues to be the case right now. The core version of Windows 8 still has a rather large user base, and it seems that Microsoft is now ready to target this group of users with an offer to update. Good thing is that acquiring new license keys this way might also get them access to Windows 9, completely free of charge. While other users will have to purchase the new operating system when it launches in early 2015. Windows 8.1 Update 2 is expected to debut in August or September...Follow this development at windows8newsinfo forum.

Windows Phone 8.1 Delivery

The rumor of the day is that Windows Phone 8.1 will officially release sometime today June 24, 2014. With that in mind, whenever there's a phone update, it's always interesting to hear the common question of: "When will I get the update?" With Windows Phone usage increasing steadily, there are quite a few people out there who are new to the distribution process for Windows Phone updates; new Windows Phone users may have come from a platform that handled updates differently, and are just unaware of how it works for Windows Phone. Even if Windows Phone 8.1 releases today, the service provider still has to test the update on the smartphones it carries. Also, before it decides to set a schedule for approving and allowing the update to deliver to your handset, the provider also has to include any special drivers from the manufacturer and the stack of carrier-specific crapware. Ultimately, the availability of the update will vary depending on your phone model, region, and mobile operator...Further details can be found at windows8newsinfo forum.

WZOR to become active again

The Russian group WZOR, best known for their numerous Microsoft information and software leaks, has posted a statement on their recent disappearance and the groups possible connection to the recently convicted Microsoft leaker Alex Kibkalo. The statement is written by a spokesman of the group and in it the group strongly denies any relationship to Alex Kibkalo. However his arrest has had its implications on WZOR. After the arrest of Kibalo the group closed its website and Twitter account, the statement also mentions the group froze its contacts with internal Microsoft information sources. The group went low profile to protect itself and its sources. The statement further stresses that WZOR had and has no relationship of any kind to Kibkalo. The group argues that some “English-speaking sources” have stated that Kibkalo was involved in the registration of the domain. However, according to the spokesman, Kibkalo never had and doesn’t have any relation to WZOR...For more on the return of WZOR Please visit windows8newsinfo forum.

Microsoft Update Client

Released to harden security and provide a more secure communication channel, a new client is rolling out for Windows computers. There's practically nothing to do, right now, but wait for the new client to rollout through Automatic Updates. The update will be rolled out gradually and methodically, as long as Automatic Updates is turned on. The update will be made available as a separate download in the future so that it can be deployed using WSUS or another deployment mechanism like System Center Configuration Manager. Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 already includes these improvements if 2919355 has been applied, so this is more a notification for computers and servers running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. In the article, Microsoft states that the current client is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section, but doesn't go into detail about a potential security risk or unreported vulnerability in the current Microsoft Update client...Details can be found on our forum.

Windows Live Service

Microsoft refutes rumors that it will shut down PC online gaming service Games for Windows Live (featuring achievements, gamertags, etc.) on July 1, but with with its marketplace shut down, it's clearly in decline. Furthermore, studios like Twisted Pixel Games – a developer now owned by Microsoft – are migrating over to Valve's Steamworks instead. Twisted Pixel has announced that an update to the Steam version of Ms. Splosion Man replaces Games for Windows Live (GFWL) implementation with Steamworks while keeping all of the game's levels and online multiplayer. Furthermore, the studio says that players can convert their GFWL saves over to Steam. Last fall, Microsoft shut down the service's marketplace, and given its unknown future, companies have begun switching over to Steamworks and ensuring that their games remain playable should Microsoft pull the plug. Regardless of Microsoft's statement refuting the rumored imminent closure of GFWL...Find out what Microsoft has to say on our forum.

Price War Starts In The SSD Market

No one ever said that price wars are beneficial or lucrative for companies in a specific industry, but for those that buy said products, the consumers, they are usually very, very good news. And if you are in the market for a SSD drive (or even a tablet), then prepare for some pleasing news. There is word that a price was is starting among the makers of solid state drives. And these are now bound to get a lot more attention from users in the coming months — as street prices drop, and newer, more improved models make their way to the market. What are the signs, you ask? For starters, Micron, one of the primary suppliers of NAND Flash chips (used in these drives) has started to reduce shipment to other manufactures. Instead, the company wants to promote its own line of SSDs that is marketed as Crucial. At the same time Kingston, Samsung and SanDisk are also aggressively competing against one another. And the most interesting reason here is the rise of the M.2 form factor...Follow this upcoming price war on our forum.
