That’s one whopper of a display panel there, folks, but it’s certainly a possibility in rumors that’ve appeared pre-launch for OS X Yosemite. The OS X Yosemite Beta builds released to testers thus far include references to 4096 × 2304, 5760 × 3240, and 6400 x 3600 pixel displays, and we have heard that Apple could be releasing far more densely-packed desktop machines in the near future.
This week Microsoft will be detailing the release of their next big operating system update: Windows 9. Before we get there though, we’ll see a Technical Preview. This Technical Preview will be split in two, one for Enterprise, the other for the general public.
It’s time to get back to basics. This September it’s looking likely that the "Threshold" tech preview of Microsoft’s next big Windows release is set to take place.

Back on April 8th, 2014, Microsoft released Windows 8.1 to the public for free download as an upgrade to Windows 8.

Microsoft’s newest solution to this comes in a Windows 8 and Windows RT Pilot Program.
The Start Button appears to be making its way back to Windows with the oncoming release of Windows "Threshold," also tipped to be called Windows 9. This system has not been confirmed by Microsoft, nor has it been officially suggested as removing the Metro UI revealed in Windows 8 at all - instead, it’s likely to be a slightly more incremental update than Windows 8 was in the first place.
The Google-made software experience known as Android Wear is made for wearable smart devices like watches. Revealed earlier this year, Android Wear will be created for devices with circular or square displays, at first catering to those that will be worn around your wrist.

If one thing is to be understood about Apple’s method of selling smartphones, it’s that they’ve got one big brand that works: iPhone.

This is due largely, he suggests, to the release of the iPhone 5s.
