Microsoft hasn't released a new build of Windows 10 in several weeks but that doesn't mean we can't get a look at the upcoming Spartan browser. Thanks to a new leak from a build that has not been released, we can get a closer view of what this new feature will look like.
While we have already seen what Cortana will look like in Spartan, these images give us a better look at what else to expect from the user interface when Spartan is released to Insiders.
Criminals are a tricky bunch. One of their favorite scams targets those who own a computer, but lack any real technical knowledge other than how to browse the Web.
The scam starts with a call that warns of problems, and immediately offers to connect you with a Microsoft support staffer. Their goal is to remotely control your system and install malware and rogue anti-Virus software.
After introducing the first version of the Microsoft fitness Band four months ago Microsoft is delivering some new software and service features, as well as a preview of the developer kit for the device.
The new updates to Microsoft Band, available today, February 23, include a Web dashboard, biking functionality, new ways to scan and respond to incoming notifications and integration with Microsoft's HealthVault personal health-tracking service and MapMyFitness.
Let me see if I can guess your password. 12345? Qwerty? How about abc123 or Dragon or trustno1 (yes, I see what you did there), or Master?
If I guessed right, then shame on you: all of those feature in the top 25 worst passwords -- along with plenty of other all-but-impossible-to-crack strokes of genius like 111111 and letmein (yes, I see what you did there, too).
With the use of passwords coming under increased scrutiny, Microsoft is taking steps to move beyond them in Windows 10. Its biggest move: Joining the FIDO (Fast Identity Online) Alliance and adding support for the biometrics technology in the upcoming upgrade of the OS, which has been slated to ship this year.
