Windows 10 Launching This Summer
Apr 20, 2015 - 5:25 PM - by joe957
Makes for a interesting read.

March 17, 2015 by Terry Myerson

Today at the renewed Windows Hardware Engineering Community (WinHEC) summit in Shenzhen, China, I had the honor of speaking about Windows 10 and the innovation and opportunity it offers our valued partners.

We continue to make great development progress and shared today that Windows 10 will be available this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages.

That’s why it was particularly fun to show our latest global innovation, Windows Hello

Millions of Users Still on Windows XP
Apr 20, 2015 - 6:19 AM - by Jack1000
Found this article interesting,

Assuming one practices safe-surfing online, has an up-to-date anti-virus, doesn't use IE 8, (The highest MS browser allowed on Windows XP,) maintains a secure encrypted wireless network, perhaps an external Firewall, how safe or at risk, are they with Windows XP?

I think people don't want Windows 8, can't get new Windows 7 anymore, so they feel stuck, in a rut. Or at least XP works fine for them.

Is the community still seeing a lot of XP machines in use?

Chrome 43 will help batten down HTTPS sites

The next version of Chrome will include a new security policy that may make it easier for developers to ensure “HTTPS” websites aren’t undermined by insecure HTTP resources.

Google speeds up data transfers with Quick UDP Internet connections
Apr 19, 2015 - 7:12 PM - by TechSocial
TechSocial's Avatar In June 2013, Google announced an experimental way to speed up web connections using what it calls QUIC, or Quick UDP Internet Connections. Now, the company says it has boosted the traffic its servers provide using QUIC and the results are promising.

Instead of using the internet standard TCP and TLS approach, QUIC can reduce page load time and buffering because it requires fewer back-and-forth conversations between clients and a server. What's the secret sauce? QUIC establishes its connection with lower latency, particuarly for devices that connected to a particular web server or service in the past, says Google:

The standard way to do secure web browsing involves communicating over TCP + TLS, which requires 2 to 3 round trips with a server to establish a secure connection before the browser can request the actual web page. QUIC is designed so that if a client has talked to a given server before, it can can start sending data without any round trips, which makes web pages load faster.

Google extends Chrome support for 'millions' still on Windows XP
Apr 17, 2015 - 10:36 AM - by ekim68
It's hard to tell exactly how many people are still using Windows XP, but for Google there's enough of them to warrant extending Chrome support through to the end of the year.

Google had planned to stop updating Chrome on Windows XP this month, exactly a year after Microsoft stopped issuing free security updates for the desktop OS - rendering machines that run XP an easy target for remote hacking.
