Windows 10 leaked build hints at P2P update distributions

Considering Microsoft is taking its sweet but absolutely necessary time to get Windows 10 finally into users' hands, it isn't unusual to turn to leaks for clues of what might soon be either the tech giant's salvation or its final damnation. Microsoft has taken great pains to ensure Windows 10 won't be as hated as Windows 8 and it has indeed introduced some rather interesting new features to make that happen. One of the latest isn't exactly going to make you drool in awe but should make updates a bit easier on bandwidth thanks to peer-to-peer technology.

But now it seems that it will also be making it slightly different in design.

Apple to make it easier to setup, share iPads for schools

Apple's devices, particularly iPad tablets, have been the darling of the academic industry for quite some time, but now it is seeing its turf threatened by more affordable, more general purpose computers, namely Google's myriad Chromebooks. iPads definitely still have advantages in terms of looks and tech savvy-ness, but some things need to change if the devices are to remain relevant and useful in today's school settings. It seems that Apple has been listening and a leaked email to its iPad for education customers reveal that the storms of change are coming.

Apple is gearing up for the launch of its smartwatch (we will be bringing all the details of the watch when it launches) and ahead of that launch word is that Apple is letting some major companies tweak their apps before the watch launches.

NBCU tipped in standalone comedy subscription service effort

For the longest time, cord-cutting (getting rid of cable) meant jumping through a lot of hoops and possibly resorting to less than kosher methods for getting one's entertainment fix. Networks have been slow to embrace technological changes, but now that consumers have moved in such a great mass toward the technology most convenient to them (mobile devices, primarily), some daring companies have decided to cater to them, and now the ball has begun rolling. Latest to contemplate launching a standalone subscription video service is NBCUniversal.
