Samsung HMD Odyssey+ upgrade tackles the big VR issue

Samsung HMD Odyssey+ upgrade tackles the big VR issue

Samsung is starting the work week by announcing something of a refresh for its HMD Odyssey headset. Early on, the original HMD Odyssey took its place as one of the higher-end Windows 10 Mixed Reality headsets, and this new model - dubbed simply the HMD Odyssey+ - builds on that. A lot of things are staying the same, but there are a few improvements worth talking about.

ASUS Zen AiO 27 opens its base, gets versatile

ASUS Zen AiO 27 opens its base, gets versatile

Normally I'd never say an all-in-one machine was "versatile" in basically any respect - they're supposed to be made to be easy to use, primarily. The ASUS Zen AiO seems to be something different. I've not yet gotten my hands on one, so I'm not certain how well it lives up to its claims, but it would appear that it's designed to look nice at the same time as it offers easy access to its innards - that's pretty rare.

Windows 10 version 1809 may have yet another file-deleting bug

Windows 10 version 1809 may have yet another file-deleting bug

It’s not Halloween yet but Windows 10 version 1809, a.k.a. the October 2018 update, is already starting to fill with horror stories from users. It won’t be long before the update becomes a scary anecdote in Microsoft’s history again. After it had pulled the problematic update for deleting the files of a few users, some Insiders are reporting that the supposedly fixed version of the update is again riddled with frightening errors. One that won’t directly delete your files but won’t tell you that it deleted them either.

How to Delete more default Windows 10 apps

How to Delete more default Windows 10 apps

Microsoft is gradually allowing the deletion of more default apps in Windows 10. This comes after many, many years of presumption that the most major operating systems in the world would come with a catch. If you downloaded or bought an OS from Microsoft or Apple, you'd be getting the apps they wanted you to have. Now, that trend might be fading.

Samsung has taken the wraps off the Galaxy Book 2, a new 2-in-1 running Windows 10 and powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850.

Windows 10 file-deleting October 2018 update re-released as Microsoft reaction wows

In addition to pulling the update, Microsoft kicked off an investigation into the matter, ultimately finding the problem. Now it has re-released the update, fixing the issue while shedding some light on how many people were impacted by the bug.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update pulled – here’s what you should do

Windows 10 October 2018 Update pulled – here’s what you should do

Some Windows 10 users might be finding themselves in a troubled state this week after the new October 2018 Update has been discovered to be deleting personal files after installation. The problem was noticed almost immediately after Microsoft began rolling out the new Windows 10 version during this week's Surface press event. It's not yet clear how widespread the issue is, but it's significant enough that Microsoft has halted the rollout of the October 2018 Update.

Windows 10 October 2018 update reportedly deleting users’ files

Windows 10 October 2018 update reportedly deleting users’ files

Computers have become such an integral part of both professional and personal life that people have come to expect that software, especially operating systems, will protect and at least keep their hands off their personal files. Apps and systems files may come and go especially during system updates but users’ personal files are considered sacrosanct. Someone at Microsoft, however, may have forgotten that principle because some users are not claiming that files in their Documents and Pictures folders are disappearing after upgrading to the latest Windows 10 version.

Surface All Access: The fine print

Surface All Access: The fine print

The cost of a Surface device can be spread out over the course of two years, thanks to the new Surface All Access plans revealed by Microsoft this week. These plans read like car loans, or buying a phone from T-Mobile: You pay for the whole device, but you don't do it all at once. The deal is done with Microsoft, but it's "made possible by Dell Financial Services." So more users can access Surface devices faster, and more realistically.

Surface Laptop 2 (2018) first impressions and hands-on

Surface Laptop 2 (2018) first impressions and hands-on

We've got our hands on the new Surface Laptop 2018 today and our first impressions are in. Long story short: not a whole lot changed since we last had a go at this machine. The differences between this and the last Surface Laptop are mostly under the hood. Of course that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's still Alcantara in the mix, after all - and now the Alcantara comes in black.

Microsoft Surface Studio 2 (2018) first impressions and hands-on

Microsoft Surface Studio 2 (2018) first impressions and hands-on

This afternoon we got the opportunity to get our hands on the Microsoft Surface Studio 2. This is the Microsoft Surface Studio for 2018 - I need to mention that because, on the surface, this device looks almost indistinguishable from its predecessor. It's just as thin, just as bright, just as powerful - but then again MORE powerful because it's working with new storage, a new CPU, and a new GPU.
