Microsoft started dropping hints about its plans to kill off the Nokia and Windows Phone brands last month, and now the company is ready to make it official. Microsoft Lumia is the new brand name that takes the place of Nokia for the software maker. The name change follows a slow transition from Nokia.com over to Microsoft's new mobile site, and Nokia France will be the first of many countries that adopt "Microsoft Lumia" for its Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts. Microsoft has confirmed to The Verge that other countries will follow the rebranding steps in the coming weeks.
Microsoft's decision to drop the Nokia brand itself doesn't mean that Nokia is going away fully. Nokia still exists as a separate company without its phones business, and the Finnish firm now...

Microsoft surprised everyone few weeks back by announcing that the next version of Windows will be called ‘Windows 10′, instead of the obvious ‘Windows 9′. So, what happened to Windows 9? Speaking on stage at the Dreamforce conference in San Francisco, Windows team executive Tony Prophet said, “It came and it went.”
Continue reading @: Microsoft Executive Explains What Happened To Windows 9
“Windows 10 is not going to be an incremental step from Window 8.1,” he explained. “Windows 10 is going to be a material step. We’re trying to create one platform, one eco-system that unites as many of the devices from the small embedded Internet of Things, through tablets, through phones, through PCs and, ultimately, into the Xbox.”

We can't help but be very excited about Windows 10 here at HQ. This is the easiest Microsoft product to get behind in a while. Not only is Microsoft going back to their roots with the OS, they are using all they have learned to really streamline this next iteration of Windows. It is shaping up to be a very well-rounded product for the desktop.
These are our five favorite things about Microsoft's Windows 10:
These major features are only a few of the best things about the new Windows 10 from Microsoft. It really looks like the folks in Redmond have been listening to user feedback and are attempting to combine all of the best features of each Windows generation. Share your favorites that we might have missed.
- The Return of the Desktop - this is our favorite returning feature. We understand that Microsoft was trying something new, but the Tile UI in Windows 8 really tried to fix something that wasn't really broken. If something works smoothly and efficiently, it's really tough to improve that with dramatic changes.
- The Return of the Start Button - this is our next favorite feature. Along with the return of the traditional desktop comes the return of the Start Button. Seriously, the Start Button was always so intuitive. It was counter-intuitive to get rid of it. Even if you are a fan of tiles, you can still use them and even add them to the Start Button menus. Very smart thinking!
- Windows Apps - Windows apps was one of the best new things that Microsoft tried with Windows 8, so we are glad to see this survive into Windows 10. You can even open and use Windows Apps on your traditional desktop now.
- Task View - this is a new feature for Windows and seems like a great idea. With Task View you can now open multiple desktops, and each will have their own apps. This is similar to the Mission Control feature in Apple’s OS X, although it looks like Windows 10 will handle it even better.
- Snap your Apps - this one is another feature that was actually pretty useful in Windows 8, and we are glad to see it return in Windows 10. This time it's even better though. You can actually snap both Windows 8 apps and regular desktop programs to either side of the screen, which will make multitasking even easier.

Here's a rumor we hope turns out to be utterly false. Supposedly, Microsoft is considering canceling the Surface product line. According to insider intel from Microsoft's supply line, the reason they are considering this move is because sales of the Surface Pro 3 have not met executive expectations. Supposedly, the Surface Pore 3 hasn't even cracked 1 million units sold yet, and may not.
In fact, Microsoft supposedly took at least $1.7 Billion in losses from the first two generation Surface products, and because of these mounting losses, Microsoft is likely to terminate the product line. It's worth noting that these rumors come from DigiTimes. They are typically one of the best sources of intel from the Asian supply line; however, their accuracy rate on intel is "spotty" at best, so take this with a grain of salt.
Here's a quote from the DigiTimes article,
Lacking a sufficient number of distribution partners, plus high prices, the first- and second-generation Surface tablets are estimated to have created losses of about US$1.7 billion, the sources noted.
Seeing large-size smartphones impacting tablet demand, the sources are concerned about upcoming demand for the Surface Pro 3.
With the factors above, the sources believe sales of the Surface Pro 3 are unlikely to surpass one million units, adding that Microsoft is also not very aggressive about development of a next-generation Surface and is likely to terminate the product line.

Pretty soon we won't need as many physical objects in the world to accomplish tasks. It seems like more and more devices and/or apps are being created everyday which replace the some mundane task or function for us. Take flipping a coin or rolling some dice for instance... Cortana can now handle both of those tasks for you so you never need the actual coin or dice. All you have to do is activate Cortana and say, “Flip a coin” or “Roll the dice.” We aren't sure just how relevant that is, but if you ever find yourself in a near-future time when you need to flip a coin and there are no more coins, then Cortana has you covered!
