Microsoft Releases WIndows 10 B10041 to ISO

The most recent build of Windows 10 available for testers is Technical Preview build 10041. Not only can you get this through Windows Update on you PC, you can now download this ISO directly from Microsoft. This shows that Microsoft is pretty happy with the build stability and hopefully it fixes a lot of issues we saw at VulcLAN earlier this month. Take a look and update you system as this rolled up in the "Slow Ring" and should be rock-solid.

Microsoft promised that it would release the ISO files for its latest build alongside its Slow ring deployment - and the firm has now made good on that promise. The ISOs for build 10041 - which Microsoft is also calling its 'March Update' for the Technical Preview - are available to download right now from the Windows Insider Program site.

ADATA @ CES 2013

We had the chance to sit down with ADATA at CES 2013 and check out the latest and greatest from them. ADATA is most famous for their DDR memory, Flash drives, SSD’s and memory cards and over the years we’ve had the chance to take a look at a few of them and have always been happy with the performance and quality. ADATA has a full lineup of SSD and memory products on display. one of which is their lineup of M.2 (NGFF) SSD drives which are designed for things like Ultrabooks where a full 2.5" drive just won't fit.

This year at CES ADATA is showing off a new product, the DashDrive Air. The DashDrive Air is a great portable device that can wirelessly transfer files to and from a SD card to your smartphone (Android or iOS). The DashDrive also has a battery inside which allows you to charge up any USB device. If thats not enough for you, the DashDrive Air can also act as a wireless hotspot and share a wireless connection with up to 8-10 devices (depends on model of DashDrive). The DashDrive Air comes in two models, the AE800 (which features an internal 500GB hard drive instead of having to use SD cards) and the AE400 (which is a bit smaller and uses an SD card for storage). The combination of a power bank, wireless hotspot, and wireless file storage makes this a very interesting product and could make it a great travel accessory.

Steam now has more than 65 million active accounts. The figure marks a 30 percent rise in players over the last year. The video game digital-download platform also boasts daily peak concurrent users of more than 6 million.
