This particular “scare” article should have you thinking yet again about the advisability of installing Windows updates as soon as they’re available.As you’ll see, Microsoft itself has flip-flopped on the resolution and those who subscribe to Windows Update have been taken along for the ride.Buggy June patches to Windows, Internet Explorer and Edge left customers in the horns of a dilemma:You can plug a security hole known as CVE-2017-8529, in which IE or Edge reveal the presence of a specific file on your computer when you simply surf to a compromised web site, ORYou can print content on web pages that are inside an HTML construct known as an iFrame, using IE 9, 10 or 11.Microsoft’s up against a hard bug that makes this an either-or proposition: Until Microsoft figures out how to fix both problems at the same time, either you patch the security hole, or you can print inside iFrames with IE, but not both.

Released earlier this year as one half of Microsoft's planned two-prong feature update cycle for 2017, the Creators Update adds a number of shiny new features to Windows 10.Sadly, these features - and, given Microsoft's switch to a cumulative update process, all future updates - are unavailable to users of entry-level machines running on Intel's Clover Trail family of Atom-branded processors.'Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC,' users are warned when the 3GB update has been downloaded and installation attempted - but not, annoyingly, when the system checks for compatibility prior to downloading the update.Microsoft has so far been entirely silent on the issue, but hardware partner Acer has published confirmation of the issue as affecting Intel's Atom Z2760, Z2520, Z2560, and Z2580 processors, while warning that even if installation is successful it may result in graphical abnormalities seemingly related to driver issues with the chips' integrated graphics processors (IGPs).'Microsoft is working with us to help provide compatible drivers to address this incompatibility,' Acer claimed.'If you install the Windows 10 creators update, icons and text may not appear at all, or may show up as solid colour blocks or bars.

Silicon Valley’s most powerful imagination belongs to a very powerful CEO.That’s according to recent data from job search firm Paysa, which used IBM’s supercomputer Watson to determine that Apple CEO Tim Cook is the tech industry’s “most imaginative” leader.Cook is followed by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Oracle’s Larry Ellison and Cisco’s Chuck Robbins.It’s clear why “having or showing creativity or inventiveness” would be important for tech titans.After all, they’re tasked with leading employees to innovate new products and come up with solutions to problems that may not even exist yet.And it’s a fitting title for Cook, given his close work with the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs over the years.

We’re still in the dark on a lot of things when it comes to Google’s 2017 Pixel devices.Scratch that last one… Android Police has brought us a brand new render of the new LG-made Pixel XL successor, and it looks hot.As you can see, the glass “window” on the rear is still there, only it looks to be much shorter this time around.It no longer surrounds the rear-facing fingerprint sensor, and it looks like it curves around the sides and top of the device ever-so-slightly.The front of the device is where things get interesting.According to the leak, the front of the phone is equipped with an LG-made (yes, that’s right) 6-inch AMOLED display with a 2:1 aspect ratio and rounded corners.

Sendence, a new startup based in New York City, announced a $1.5 million seed round today.The company is working on a platform for simplifying deployment of real-time applications.Investors include Boldstart Ventures, Greycroft, Contour Venture Partners, Notation Capital and Resolute Ventures.As company CEO and co-founder Vid Jain sees it, more companies are hiring data scientists to develop applications to make decision based on large amounts of data in real time, but the problem becomes dealing with the complexity of running these applications, whether in the cloud or a data center.What Sendence purports to do is remove all of that complexity by handling the underlying infrastructure plumbing and making it scale automatically whenever new resources are required.Developers write their applications on the Sendence Wallaroo platform in their language of choice, which Jain says covers most popular choices such as C++ or Python — most anything except Java.

Redmond’s focus on the Azure cloud continues with new UK services, amid thousands of jobs cutsMicrosoft has expanded the number of Azure-related cloud services it offers UK customers, as the firm continues to promote its cloud-centric vision going forward.It comes after Microsoft confirmed this week that it will cut 4,000 jobs across its global workforce, with most of the job losses expected to come from the sales teams of its traditional desktop and server software.Those job cuts come on top of Redmond’s brutal exit from the smartphone sector, which saw it axing thousands of jobs associated with its acquisition of Nokia’s mobile phone business.Microsoft under the leadership of Satya Nadella however now has a fierce focus on cloud services such as Office 365 and Azure.To this end it has announced a number of new services for UK customers, as revealed in blog post by Andres Juarez, Principal Program Manager of Redmond’s Global Ecosystem.

Elephone seem to be really investing on their latest Elephone P8 Mini and the new ELE OS equipped on it.Indeed they’re adding beautify effects to the front camera to capture better looking selfies.Let’s have a look at some of these samples.As we can see the two photos look drastically different, now we aren’t sure if these are before and after using the beautify effect or the pictures on the left are taken on an iPhone 6S, as Elephone didn’t make it clear.Either way, it’s safe to assume those on the right are the final results you can get on an Elephone P8 Mini.The camera software isn’t the whole deal though, indeed the P8 Mini also features an high quality 16MP front-facing shooter with a large F/2.0 aperture; that helps grabbing more light and making photos look sharper.

In what we reckon is a world-first, we’ve shipped in Acer’s £9000 Predator 21 X and the Asus ROG GX800VH (a bargain £6500) to find out, once and for all, which of the world’s craziest gaming laptops takes overall honours.With four GTX 1080s between them, a water-cooling dock, overclockable processors and top-of-the-line screens, this is a fight worth watching.Samsung Galaxy S8 release date and priceThe Galaxy S8 goes on sale globally on April 28 and is priced at £689 in the UK or $720 in the US if you want to buy it outright.This is a dedicated Bixby button – which I'll cover in more detail in the Software section – and while it shows Samsung is taking its new virtual assistant seriously, it feels too much for Bixby to have its own button.Unlike with the G6, though, the display here melts into the sturdy metal rim.

The Tesco Clubcard has had a makeover.The new cards, being sent out to customers soon, are contactless, and controversially, the supermarket giant has added Uber to its rewards partners.Why is the move controversial?Well because London's 21,000 black cab drivers are livid again, that's why.Tesco's Clubcard offers you money off your shopping if you spend the points you accrue in-store.You get a much better deal, however, if you exchange Clubcard points for things like restaurant vouchers, tickets to Legoland or other treats.

För drygt en vecka sedan lyckades Elon Musks Spacex med konststycket att skjuta upp två rymdsonder till rymdstationen ISS under en helg - en bragd som sågs som ett stort framsteg för den relativt unga rymdorganisationen.Men Spacex tycks inte vila på gamla meriter, för nu rapporterar Engadget att organisationen återigen skrivit historia efter att ha lyckats med en resa, tur och retur, till ISS med en återanvänd rymdsond.Återanvända rymdsonder innebär inte bara att Spacex i framtiden kan göra billigare rymdresor, då de slipper bygga nya sonder, utan det betyder även att organisationen nu kan skicka upp fler sonder med kortare väntetid.Ett faktum som säkerligen gläder NASA som anlitar Spacex för sina resor till ISS.Läs också: Elon Musk vill placera 1 miljon människor på Mars – så ska det gå tillPå lång sikt är även de återanvändningsbara sonderna ett steg mot de grandiosa planer Spacex har på att kolonisera vår grannplanet Mars.
