The Biggest Announcement’s From Microsoft’s Keynote Event



The Biggest Announcement's From Microsoft's Keynote Event 1

Microsoft obviously artists and content creators to want its products. The company unveiled multiple creative-minded products at its keynote a few days ago , including a major Windows 10 upgrade called the “Creators Update” and a gorgeous PC called the Surface Studio.

It has 80 custom parts in its arm alone! Most of the announcements were about advancing into the future, but Microsoft also stayed true to its roots with an update to Paint. Here are all the highlights below.

Windows 10 Creators Update

Windows 10 is  going to get a major update for early 2017, dubbed the “Creators Update.” Highlights of the update include the addition of new 3D creation tools, live-streaming and custom tournaments for the Xbox app, and a focus on communicating with close contacts by putting “people at the center of the Windows experience.” Terry Myerson, executive vice president of Microsoft’s Windows and devices group, says he wants Windows 10 to “have the effect of the Gutenberg press on the next wave of computing.”

3D Paint

Microsoft relaunched and revamped its classic Paint app with a focus on 3D. The new app lets users easily turn photos into 3D “memories,” export three-dimensional Minecraft creations, doodle in 3D, and make most anything an interactive object. Microsoft is betting people will want to view their work on the HoloLens or on a multitude of other VR and AR headsets. Users who don’t want to buy new hardware for their Paint creations can also just share their work directly to Facebook.

Windows VR headsets

In addition to the HoloLens platform, Microsoft announced its first foray into virtual reality with VR headsets for Windows 10. The headsets will start at $299 and run the same Windows Holographic platform as the HoloLens. While no concrete release date has been announced yet, Microsoft did say that HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus, and Acer will all be making headsets.

Xbox live streaming

Live broadcasting is built into the Xbox app in the Windows 10 Creators Update. Streaming works as part of Xbox Live, allowing people to follow along with their existing Xbox Live friends. Games can also integrate comments and suggestions from viewers directly in-game. Microsoft is also updating its Arena platform to let players create their own challenges and custom tournaments. The Creators Update adds Dolby Atmos audio support to the Xbox, too.

Windows People

Microsoft emphasized its desire to help users interact with the most important people in their life, like spouses, best friends, and family. With the Creators Update, communications with these “key people” can be done directly in the task bar, where users can drag and drop content. Microsoft also showed off a feature akin to the Facebook poke, called “taps,” that lets people send each other stickers of 3D objects as a gentle reminder that they’re still alive.

Surface Studio

Microsoft announced the latest member of its Surface hardware lineup, the Surface Studio, a touchscreen all-in-one desktop computer that’s only 12.5mm thick. Spec-wise, the Studio has a 28-inch PixelSense display, GeForce 980M, an Intel i7 processor, and up to 32GB of memory and 2TB of storage. The Studio also has a “zero-gravity hinge” that allows the screen to tilt down at a sharp angle, allowing it to move from a more traditional computer design to a drafting board form factor for drawing and creative work. Preorders start today for $2,999, with “limited quantities” available for this holiday season.

Surface Dial

The Surface Dial is a new input device for Microsoft’s latest Surface products. The device provides haptic feedback and users twist it to select items from an on-screen menu — for example, a color picker. The Surface Studio takes it one step further, allowing you to place the Dial directly onto the screen for contextual software control. The Dial will be out in November for $99.99, but comes free with Surface Studio preorders.

Surface Book i7

Microsoft didn’t show off a new Surface Book, but instead upgraded last year’s model to include Intel’s i7 processor and a bigger battery. The Surface Book i7 will be available in November for $2,399 and is said to reach up to 16 hours of battery life, even with more graphics power and an extra fan to keep everything cool.

What’s next

Microsoft is pushing a narrative in which everyone is a creator, so we’re likely to continue seeing products around that idea. It doesn’t matter whether someone prefers Excel to Paint, Microsoft wants to be a part of the creative process, however a user wants to interpret that. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said he wants to bring “mixed realities” to life through 3D content, AR, and the marrying of Windows with Office and gaming.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 23

If there’s anything you need more aside from food, then it’s probably data.

Civilization has gotten more digital than ever, tech has rapidly evolved – so as apps. And regardless of what uses these apps provide, most of them need our mobile data to run efficiently.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 24

Mobile networks are aware of these, and the cost data is obviously getting less expensive than it was. Thankfully, no matter what part of the world you’re in, there’s always a data plan for everyone.

But still, there is still a way to get the most out of your data plan without unnecessary usage that you might not even be aware of.

Now forget what similar articles you might have seen before, if you follow these two simple tips, you’ll definitely notice change in your data exhaustion rate.

1 β€’ Turn off Apps Background Data

As simple as this may seem, a lot of individuals don’t even know this. Turning off background data for some certain apps can save you a lot of money not just data only.

Reason is, some apps use your data even if you don’t have them open. It all happens in the background.

Here’s how to turn off apps background data.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 25
First, go to Settings, then to Apps

Click whichever app you don’t need background data

Below the app details, click data usage

Click on the toggle beside the background data

And Voila!

You can do these for as many apps you wish not to use your data unnecessarily in the background.

2 β€’ Install Datally

Datally is another app from Google with the initiative of conserving more data for its Android users. The app is lightweight, its latest version is just little above 5MB.

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 26
Adding to this, it comes with a bunch of useful features like data saver that allows you to block data background usage or unwanted notifications from apps with ease, and also a detailed statistics of your data usage.

My favorite feature is the Bubble that gives real-time data usage of the app you’re using at that moment

2 Best Ways to Extend your Data Plan 27
One tip though (more like an advice), if you’re at any point managing data stay far from YouTube. But if you still have the itch to watch youtube video, go for the lite version of the app, YouTube Go. Because I heard some people only get their senses back with the “your data is remaining 100MB” message. πŸ™„

Okay that will be all for now. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to assist.

Thanks for reading, hopefully I’ll see you in the next post.

These photos were sent in by a friend of mine Xperienx Visuals and these pictures mean a lot . It’s not the regular tech stuff I normally post but I thought you would love it.

These 10 Stunning Photo Concepts Will Give You A Lot To Think About 29

I was in pain and in search for Joy I found more pain, and this time it was unbearable cause I was left all alone and broken.. Had no alternatives so I turned to some ‘Pills and Portions’ which had promised to be a friend. In my lonely world, I embraced my only source of friendship so tight that I didn’t notice I was about to get betrayed.. Lost in the addictive relationship of drugs, I wondered how come I still felt so empty when I had found a friend already..

        Days of trauma and addiction ran into weeks which skipped into years, and now here I am in Chains cause I never knew I had found a friend in bondage, I never knew the So-called Pills and Portions came along with Tricks and plots to make me more miserable than I ever was…. Now, I realized that my search for Joy had led me into My END.. Oh! I made my search wrongly, spent years searching with my eyes cast with a selfish and deceitful desire that I couldn’t recognize the enemy in disguise: DRUGS..


2. The fight against drug abuse would never end until you realize the world awaits you to speak..  In a time like this when we’ve got no voice to listen to cause they all got cracked with smokes, why not be the voice that would make the change… I know maybe you’re not reading this clearly cause you’ve not really recovered from the #ONETAP you took few hours ago, but listen YOU STILL HAVE A CHANCE TO CAUSE CHANGE, let’s save a drowning generation, let’s save a friend today.. The NO TO DRUG ABUSE BEGINS WITH YOU.. LET’S teach our youths to cultivate weed instead of digesting them in ignorance..

3.  You may have taught about giving it a try, you think it feels so cool, just #ONETAP. You wish to get used to the feeling so you’ll join the #sciencestudent meanwhile you could be a #changeagent. Listen, it never feels good to be in bondage. Great destinies and dreams have been cut shut all because of a trial. In search of the groove you may end up losing yourself to the cold chains of addiction. 
       Hey, you should spell a big NO to that deceitful disaster, say a big #no to the wrong message from the Society and friends, say NO to 1st trial, cause it brings more harm. Say NO to drugs today, and live up your dreams #Tomorrow. Live right, cause your life is an epistle to many. Take a #stand today and shun
4.       In the most corrupt of systems at least one saint can always be found, but in a little time he may drown or get lost in the system if overlooked.. Even a blind man today can tell that Drug abuse has taken a large portion of the Society and trend. But, CAN THIS EVER BE CHANGED?..  This Image shows the possibility of STANDING OUT even when it seems impossible.. From the past decades we had men like Lanre Oluseye, Timi Dakolo, Samuel Dixon who went through the ghetto rivers but never got carried away with the waves of influence and trends.. 
        Can such men be raised again from this decade, When our youths get few or no mentors to look up to, When even law  students are proudly branded as #SCIENCESTUDENTS just to fit in, When pharmacists are paid to falsely prescribe Codeine and narcotics, When religious and political leaders no longer preach truth, protecting their ego and selfish interests.. THE CALL TO SHUN #ONETAP WOULD BE MERE NOISE IF WE HAVE NO NO IDOLS THESE YOUTHS CAN LOOK UP TO.. Let’s shift our focus more to the FEW DROPS yet to be moved by the wave…
         Every river was started by a drop that made waves and then ripples.. Join us share this message, you could be a mentor to a few.. Please SHUN #ONETAP AND BE THE CHANGE YOU DESIRE..

6.       Have you been to prison yards before and find out how those inmates live life getting used to bondage and fear. being bound is way more than the Chains you see.. 
       17 years old David has a story that makes my eyes bleed with tears. I saw him silently crying at a corner where he hid himself, felt so burdened I made an approach. As I went closer I perceived a hard smell of Indian hemp that made me choke, I was so amazed how he managed to smoke for rolls which were lined on the floor and an extra in his hand which went off as tears and sweat soaked his hands .. I managed to take him out and spend some time with him.. I got really sober when he said in tears that for some months now he could hardly breath and he had withdrawn from school as a result.
        Young David had promised himself never to do drugs again since he silently knows the main cause of his health and academic tragedy but always falls back into burning rolls and this time in doubled dose.. He said his fear had always been accepting drugs as his addiction and weakness but Sadly it occurs to him that he is severely addicted and has slaved himself to the tyranny of this deceitful desire..  
  Tears soaked my eyes as he struggled with cough and said he had lost all hope.. But There’s always a key to every lock, and my proffered solution to every young one out there is to FEAR #ONETAP, SHUN IT AND FLEE FROM IT, cause it fit no get ending.. I ensured David that I’ll hide his identity cause he was scared his mum could see this post.. If only we knew what our young ones go through.. .. PLEASE JOIN US SHARE THIS MESSAGE, IT COULD BE NEEDFUL TO SOMEONE CLOSE.. MAYBE YOUR CHILD, MAYBE YOUR HEIR…  #SAYNOTODRUGS..
       Young Joe, grew up as the only kid from a poor family in the diobu ghetto.. As little as he was he had seen so much than I have even heard.. 😒😒.. His parents were never home, so he was left in the care of his cousin who was a core drug maniac and a severe addict for years.. Lil, Joe started doing drugs at a tender age not cause he was destined to but as a result of the INFLUENCE, BULLY and PRESSURE he faced from his pervert cousin at the absence of his parents.. 
        And now days had run into weeks, into months, into years and now the little innocent and smart Joe that was loved had now become the deadly and notorious Joe that is WANTED by the So-called Police who themselves act Nonchalant and Chaotic as a result of this DRUG ABUSE that is eating up our society, our youths and even our fathers… 
         Listen, This case is not peculiar to little Joe alone, but your child and maybe your only child may be going through this and could end up in the COLD chains of ADDICTION at your IGNORANCE.
8.     All we say is “SHUN DRUG ABUSE, DON’T GIVE IT A TRY. DON’T GIVE IT A CHANCE”.. Be a mentor to younger ones, don’t expose them to this life threatening practice..  And Please keep drugs away from the reach of children..  Please, take a #stand today and say a Bold No to DRUG.. SHARE THIS MESSAGE AND REACH OUT TO SOMEONE IN NEED.. 
9.    It’s no longer a clichΓ© that we are fully shaped by our environment.. Children mostly retains every information seen than told..  It’s sad that we live in a society were the only thing flashed to us is several ways of practicing Drug abuse and other vices.. But, shall we sit and watch this one’s get lost to the ill influence of our society?.. 
       Why not be an example young ones can learn from?.. Why not be a source of positive inspiration to the youths?.. It’s time we take a #stand and #Show them the way..  #SHUN #DRUGS #ABUSE TODAY, AND SPREAD THIS MESSAGE TO A YOUTH AND TO YOURSELVES, CAUSE #CHANGE STARTS WITH #ME..
