Windows 10 updated news

Microsoft has announced that windows 10 will be released for PC and tablets on July 29 with the mobile version following later in the year.
Xiaomi and Microsoft have tied up and a Windows 10 ROM for the Mi4 has been released. The tool to install the ROM will be made available to only a select set of users for now as it is still in the beta stage.
Could this be the game changing moment for Microsoft. The much dreamed of Windows Mobile and Android combination? Only time will tell and as far as we’re concerned, we love the idea.

Advice to our readers: Please refrain from installing Windows 10 mobile preview on your device unless it is your secondary device. On the Lumia 630 dual sim it was buggy and also during the install, the phone was bricked and needed to be recovered using the Nokia retail tool and other steps which took a full day. If this has happened to you, please contact us and we’ll help you.

Windows 10 phone

While we all were waiting for windows 10 to come, Microsoft had released phone insider. An app meant to give windows 10 on those phones who registered to preview it. However Microsoft today updated the app to windows insider. The login problems have gone and I now shows built not available. It also has a link to view phone requirements, but the page doesn’t exist….yet. This is all in preparation for its preview launch next month. We hope you are as excited as we are!!!!

Messaging

The time has come when technology has taken away our spare time. One of the main contributing sources is the smartphone category and its wide range of messaging applications. Whenever we are free, we message someone to “talk to”. Before the advent of smartphones and their variety of apps, calling and SMS were used. Not many people used SMS because the cost of every message made unnecessary conversation a burden. People used to call and talk but now everyone wants to multitask and for free..why call one person(or use conference where everyone speaks at the same time leading to confusion) when you could “talk” to many for free. Would I rather sit searching for signal and then talk to someone int he phone,unable to watch a movie with the volume high or listening to music or would I prefer messaging someone for free and do all this other stuff too?…I have seen the trend change..from 500 SMS’s that I sent in a month,I now send probably 2.
My verdict is that Whatsapp(they should be proud of themselves… I think they’ve dominated the messaging market) killed SMS and also calling partly…(at least for me)
People prefer messaging as you get time to think, you have a previous conversation you can refer to, you can avoid people too.
Due to the FREE factor and the above mentioned, all we do now is…message long forwarded jokes all the way to the irritating”k”.
It’s time that messaging apps come with custom keyboards that optimize app usage. Whatsapp has the widest reach in terms of number of supported devices(Symbian anyone??) and will dominate till someone comes up with selective telepathic messaging 😛
Whatsapp we believe more convenient than bbm as we can communicate with people who dont have iPhones or android phones with ICS and above….well this is my view and im a windows phone user 😀 so its obvious.
Till then keep messaging and let us know which app you use and whether messaging has changed your life.
