Windows 8.1 Continues to Gain Traction

Windows 8.1 Continues to Gain TractionMicrosoft’s latest operating system continues to gain users, according to new data, though its growth has been quite slow. 

According to data released by StatCounter on Tuesday, Windows8.1 has surpassed its immediate predecessor, Windows 8, in worldwide internet usage. In the month of August, Windows 8.1 has grown to 7.5 percent of all devices, passing Windows 8 with 6.6 percent. Windows 7 continues its reign with just over 50 percent of the internet usage share. With 12.9 percent, Windows XP “refuses to die” despite Microsoft ending support for the operating system earlier this year. Meanwhile Apple’s latest versions of OS X lag behind with just 7.8 percent. “Following a mixed reaction to Windows 8, perhaps because of its radical new look, Windows 8.1 appears to be winning over users,” said Stat Counter’s chief executive Aodhan Cullen. 

Net Applications’ data for the month of August seems to paint a similar picture. It claims that Windows 8.1 snatched up a 7.09 percent market share, up from 6.56 in July. Despite the Windows 8.1 update, many are still using Windows 8, which had 6.28 percent of the market in August. According to Net Applications, Windows 7 had 51.24 percent and XP held onto 23.89 percent. Apple’s Mac OC had just 6.74 percent and Linux snatched up 1.67 percent. Overall, Microsoft’s Windows OS reigned supreme with over 90 percent of the market. Microsoft is expected to drop the Windows 8.X line for Windows 9, codenamed Threshold. The next Windows OS is expected to launch in preview mode following a press conference on September 30th and is rumored to launch officially in April 2015.

News Internet Xbox Music Changes Announced 2015

Xbox Music Changes Announced
On Thursday, Microsoft made several announcements regarding Xbox Music, including removing the need for a Pass subscription for mobiles. 

With the latest mobile app updates, Android and iOS users of Microsoft’s Xbox Music app no longer need to pay $9.99 a month on the company’s Xbox Music Pass to access the service’s key features. In March, Microsoft updated its Xbox Music service on Windows to play songs stored on OneDrive and now the company has added this support to its Android and iOS apps without the need for a subscription. Mobile users can also download the songs stored in OneDrive to make them available for offline use. Users will still need the Xbox Music Pass to use Xbox Music Radio, which creates custom stations based on your favorite artists. The iOS and Android app updates are available now on their respective mobile app stores. 

Meanwhile, Microsoft announced that Xbox Music will be rebranded. Starting with Windows 10PCs, Xbox Music will be called Groove. “Groove describes what people feel and do with music, and is more intuitive for our Windows 10 customers on what they’ll find with the app,” explained Microsoft on the rebranding. Groove will work in light and dark themes when it launches with the new OS later this month and will feature easy-to-use menus and navigation controls. To stream music, users will need a Groove Music Pass which is available for $9.99 per month or $99 per year. Existing Xbox Music Pass subscriptions will become Groove Music Passes when the renaming becomes official. 

News Internet Apple to Improve Security on iOS and OS X

Apple to Improve Security on iOS and OS X
On Wednesday, Apple announced its plan to feature “two-factor authentication” built into iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan to bolster security. 

In June, Apple revealed that the feature would be integrated into OS X 10.11 El Capitan and iOS 9, but did not reveal how two-factor authentication would actually work in the upcoming operating systems. This week, Apple posted a new support page which detailed the security feature. “Two-factor authentication is an additional layer of security for your Apple ID that is designed to prevent unauthorized access to your account and protect the photos, documents, and other data that you store with Apple. Two-factor authentication can keep your account secure even if someone has your password. And since it’s built right in to iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, it’s easy to use,” said Apple. The two-factor authentication is currently an opt-in feature for beta users and will roll out to more users as Apple solidifies the process. 

The new two-factor authentication process requires users to enter a 6 digit verification code when signing into new devices. This code will be automatically displayed on Apple devices or can be sent via text messages or phone call. Once verified, the new device will automatically become trusted. Apple also plans to kill the Recovery Key – a 14 character code used in the current (soon to be previous) two-step verification process for users who forgot their password. With the new system, users will need to call Apple to request account recovery if they cannot sign in, reset their passwords, or receive verification codes. “Account recovery will take a few days–or longer–depending on what account information you are able to provide,” explained Apple. “The process is designed to get you back into your account as quickly as possible while denying access to anyone who might be pretending to be you.” The new process will be available for users with the official roll out of iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan in September. 

Chromecast Gets Ethernet Adapter

Chromecast Gets Ethernet Adapter
This week, Google quietly launched a new accessory for its Chromecast dongle that looks to help users who may not have a strong Wi-Fi network. 

Previously, Google’s Chromecast dongle required users to be connected to a Wi-Fi network, but without super-fast and strong Wi-Fi, some users found streaming content difficult. Now, Google has released a $15 Ethernet adapter for the dongle for those who prefer a wired connection. “This optional accessory lets you connect your Chromecast directly to your router to create a fast and reliable connection for your Chromecast,” explained Google. The Chromecast dongle only has one port, for charging capabilities, so this adapter doubles over as a charger and Ethernet port. Users will need to have a router with an Ethernet output near their TV or a long Ethernet cable. The adapter is available for $15 on the Google Store in the United States but has already sold out of its initial stock. It is unclear when Google will restock the accessory. 

Google launched its Chromecast dongle back in 2013 and the device has not received any major updates since, though Google has added features and support over the last two years. Chromecast is available for $35 and allows users to send content from a smartphone, tablet, or PC to a TV with the dongle plugged in. The device only supports 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, which means it is unable to connect to today’s 5 GHz networks. Despite this, at Google I/O 2015, SVP Sundar Pichai announced that Chromecast sales have surpassed 17 million. 

El primer combate de robots gigantes

El primer combate de robots gigantes
Una empresa japonesa acepta el reto de otra estadounidense y el año que viene celebrarán el primer combate de robots gigantes de la historia. 

La semana pasada, la compañía estadounidense MegaBots publicó un vídeo promocional en el que retaba a la japonesa Suidobashi Heavy Industries a luchar contra su robot en una pelea “a muerte”. Unos días después, su rival ha publicado otra grabación en la que acepta el reto, de manera que ambas entidades celebrarán el año que viene el primer combate entre androides gigantes de la historia, indica

En el lado estadounidense del cuadrilátero se encuentra MegaBots Mark II, un robot de 4,5 metros de altura y 6 toneladas de peso que necesita dos personas para ser pilotado. Se mueve con cadenas similares a las de un tanque y sus cañones pueden disparar 1,3 kg de bolas de pintura a 161 km/h. 

La apuesta de los japoneses (con una larga tradición de creación de robots) es Kurata, un androide de 3,8 metros y 5 toneladas que puede ser controlado por un operario. Se desplaza mediante tres ruedas y cuenta con varias armas entre las que se encuentra una ametralladora de pintura y un brazo compresor, aunque sus responsables mejorarán sus prestaciones de cara al duelo. 

No obstante, aún quedan muchos detalles pendientes por concretar, como la fecha y el lugar de celebración del combate, las normas por las que se regirá o el árbitro que lo dirigirá.
