Hyper-V Coming To Windows 8

Hyper-V Coming To Windows 8

Microsoft announced via the Building Windows 8 blog that at least some client versions of Window 8 will natively support virtualization thought the use of Hyper-V, which has formerly been reserved for only server editions of Windows. Hyper-V always required some form of hardware virtualization, but this is more restrictive than the current specs and if the same requirement applies to the forthcoming Windows Server 8, then some machines capable of running Hyper-V today would not be able to run Hyper-V after upgrading. Microsoft promised at its Worldwide Partner Conference in July that any PC running Windows 7 today will be upgradeable to Windows 8 and the Hyper-V desktop requirements underscore the fact that not every Windows 7-capable computer will be able to access all the features of Windows 8, particularly given that Hyper-V will also require at least 4GB of RAM

Android Still King Of The US Smartphone Market

Android Still King Of The US Smartphone Market

As Android continues to dominate U.S. smartphone market share month after month, a new report argues that this momentum will be the key to saving Motorola and it is that rapid growth and popularity which could be the key to save flagging Motorola Mobility, which was purchased last week, according to a new report from the NPD Group. Android currently holds 52 percent of the smartphone market as of the end of the second quarter of 2011 and there’s been some concern voiced about how Google might treat its other Android partners now that it has an actual device maker under in its tent, but NPD doesn’t think that’ll be a problem and Google has said publically that things wouldn’t change with its partners……………….

Download Final Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Build 7720

Download Final Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Build 7720

Apparently the flashing tools Microsoft has been using to update Windows Phone 7.5 beta to the RTM version has leaked onto the internet and there is a reasonably good chance that flashing the RTM, which is only slightly different from the 7712 build out already, will leave your device in a state not updatable by the official release, but when you made a NoDo back-up, it should be possible to get back to the straight and narrow. This is still considered a developer release, which simply means that it will work on any Windows Phone 7 device without modifications and Windows Phone Mango is the long wished-for major update for Windows Phone 7, aimed at building on the first-generation platform, which is expected to bring Microsoft’s smartphone division up to par with its main competitors, mainly Android and iOS……………..

30th Birthday Of The IBM PC

The company goes on to tout its vision of the future, claiming that it will soon make all things plain at its upcoming BUILD conference and Microsoft has so hyped that event that if it fails to be the perfect conference of all time, even by a hair, it will be deemed a flop………………
