To make things easier for customers, Windows 10 is going to come in many different versions.

You'll be able to get the following flavors of Windows 10:

  • Windows 10 Home
  • Windows 10 Mobile
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 10 Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Education
  • Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise
  • Windows 10 IoT Core (for low cost, small footprint devices, eg. gateways)
  • Windows 10 Enterprise for Industry (devices like ATM's, Point of Sale Devices, etc.)
  • Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise for Industry (devices like ATM's, Point of Sale Devices, etc.)


Quote from Microsoft:

We designed Windows 10 to deliver a more personal computing experience across a range of devices. An experience optimized for each device type, but familiar to all. Windows 10 will power an incredibly broad range of devices – everything from PCs, tablets, phones, Xbox One, Microsoft HoloLens and Surface Hub. It will also power the world around us, core to devices making up the Internet of Things, everything from elevators to ATMs to heart rate monitors to wearables. No matter which Windows 10 device our customers use, the experience will feel comfortable, and there will be a single, universal Windows Store where they can find, try and buy Universal Windows apps.


Should be interesting to see how the multiple versions are received. For the average consumer there aren't too many choice outside of Home and Pro which isn't overly confusing but Microsoft has always taken some flak over too many versions which doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon. You can read more about all of the versions over at Microsoft's Blog.

Deepcool @ CES 2016

If you haven't heard of Deepcool before, after this CES, you will probably be trying to find someone who sells their products here in North America. Deepcool brought some interesting designs to their suite this year. One of such is the Tristellar case and by looks alone one could almost say it was out of a Star Wars movie. The graphics card is contained in the top one of the three "wings", while the PSU is in the lower left "wing" and lastly the ITX motherboard and CPU are housed in the lower right. There is also enough room to stick one of Deepcool’s liquid coolers in the case as well.

The Images will show the Tristellar S white case however this is a special Bill Owen MOD case with only 50 made globally; the normal version of the case comes in black.

The Genome which will be hitting the market later this year is more than just a case, it's an extreme liquid cooling system. The case and liquid cooler are designed to fit seamlessly together all the while bringing some interesting design elements in along the way. The cooling solution is a 360mm radiator with 3 PWM fans, a helix reservoir, and all the while using the new captain design CPU block and pump. Depending on the final price when it hits the market it really could be worth looking at when building a new rig.

To top it all off DeepCool was demonstrating a PSU that was liquid cooled which is something not too many people have worked on. Who knows if it will become a mainstream item or not, but it's always cool to seem something new and different.

Windows 10 Mobile Ready for Snapdragon 830

So why does it matter that Windows 10 Mobile is ready for a Snapdragon 930 CPU? Windows phones are traditionally older hardware that have slower overall performance from their Android counterparts. The new Snapdragon 830 is a beast of a chip that supports up to 8GB of RAM and be based on a power-sipping 10nm process. Finally, Windows 10 Mobile devices will have be able to run Continuum smoothly and be able to replace something. Now that NexDock is looking a little more appealing.

At Mobile World Congress this year, HP announced the long awaited Elite x3, a Windows 10 Mobile device powered by a Snapdragon 820 that wouldn't be coming until this summer. This led many to speculate about why it wouldn't be released until summer, suggesting that it would be released alongside the Anniversary Update - or Redstone 1, as it was known at the time.

Xbox One Spring Bundle is Solid

If you've been waiting for a good deal to come along before you drop money on a new Xbox One, this could be it. Microsoft's new Spring bundle includes the 1TB Xbox One as well as four games. The games may not all be your top picks, but the include Halo 5, Ori, Rare Replay and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. Two of the games are worth spending money on at least.

Spring is here and so are the Xbox deals. Microsoft started its Spring Sale back in March, which included a chance to pick up an Xbox One for $299. While the game sale ended going into April, the sale on Xbox One has not.

Android Security Reality

While Android had a tough time in the past year when it came to security headlines, the reality is that if you use your device like 99% of Android users - and just get your applications through the Play Store, you'll likely be fine. If you open your phone, unlock the bootloader and install applications by way of sideloading, you have a better chance at something sneaking into you device. That being said, users typically don't do that and the mainstream Android user is actually very safe and secure on the Google platform. Google wants you to "look at the data."

You can read the entire report, if you want to get into the weeds. For those who don’t, the key point is that Google is taking security seriously. That could come from the spark of the Apple-FBI standoff over mobile encryption (or that Apple likes to bludgeon its mobile rival about its security). Ludwig said the Android team was not influenced by the FBI case, but did emphasize that Google is rolling out more and more device encryption.
