Hands on with Windows 10

Microsoft bucked the trend and decided to count in a new modern way and skip Windows 9 altogether. I'm not exactly sure why they wouldn't go from Windows 7, Windows 8 and then to Windows 9, but Windows 10 is now announced officially. I think this is mostly to appease the Germans. Either way, there is a lot of details that are now public today and if you want to see what it looks like in action - there are some official screenshots at the link below.

Microsoft is launching Windows 10 as the new face of both Windows and eventually Windows Phone. At one point during Microsoft’s Tuesday press event, Terry Myerson, the executive vice president in charge of Microsoft’s OS group, called the new OS “our most open, collaborative OS project ever.” Collaborative, indeed. Microsoft is looking for user feedback, and what I demo'd on Tuesday may not be the same OS that customers receive next year.

Dropbox: Not Hacked, but Exploited and Deleting Your Data

Dropbox didn't have much to be thankful for this past long weekend here in Canada. Not only were rumors floating around that they were hacked, the also had a bug sweep through their system that caused some of their users data to be permanently deleted. This was a very bad weekend. Thankfully, they weren't hacked. Unfortunately, a third-party exploit caused thousands of their users logins to be accessed and a good number of them were published online.

Dropbox has confirmed that a bug in some older versions of its desktop apps deleted the files of some people who turned on Selective Sync, which limits cloud syncing to certain folders. Typically, this would happen after a crash or forced reboot, making a bad problem worse -- at least a few users found that they'd lost years' worth of content through no fault of their own.

OnePlus Looks to Windows Phone

The HTC One M8 has both an Android and Windows phone version and I have to admit, the Windows Phone variant looks a lot more appealing in terms of battery life. OnePlus has decided to play both sides of the battle here as well and is looking at putting their OnePlus One up against itself as they might just be releasing a Windows phone version in the near future. I kind of hope they do. I'm not looking at jumping ship on Android just yet, but competition is always a good thing.

OnePlus has managed to attract a lot of attention with the OnePlus One, a $349 smartphone that offers specs often found in devices twice as expensive. At this stage, it is not known whether manufacturer is looking to offer the OnePlus One with Windows Phone (much like HTC has done with the One M8 for Windows) or whether an entirely new handset is in the works.
