Windows 10 Your New Best Friend

Microsoft launched its new and updated versions of Surface laptops and devices on 2nd October 2018 and before updating remember backup your data using Wireless Hard Drive so you can take your data any place. Along with launching these new laptops and computer systems, Microsoft introduced the audiences with a new and important update in Windows 10 which is going to be very useful for Android Users.

So what is this new app you might be wondering right?

In this new update or the October 2018 update for Windows 10, Microsoft has added new application software.

This application software is named “Your Phone” and is available on Windows 10 updated version.

The “Your Phone” app lets the Android users connect, if using the right word then syncs their Android devices to their PCs (having Windows 10).

This app lets the users send and receive emails, texts, chats, photos, videos, doc files and etc. from your Android devices directly in your PC.

And this whole thing works over Wi-Fi, so you do not need to plug your Android phone to your PC.

Also, to use this application software, one should have to install the “Your Phone Companion” app from the Google Play Store in the android phones too.

There are millions of users in this world who use Android Phones and Windows 10 Laptops and PCs.

And this update can help the users to do several things efficiently which they were not able to do or was time-consuming.

You can do lots of stuff by using this new app.

By using this app you can share images, docs, videos, sending text messages through PC, making a backup, or filling some online forms and etc.

Now the users do not need to dig in the phones for texting, chatting or sending emails while working on PC. They can easily do all these work through their Laptops and PCs.

The app lets you continue the work on your Android phone that you left incomplete on your PC with the help of some other Microsoft apps too.

It also helps you pick up where you left off by telling you the last app you used on your Android phone.

All these features can help an Android and Windows 10 user to conserve its time by easily accessing its Android device on its Laptop’s screen.

Another thing you can do to make all the things easier is to use Microsoft Dynamics 365 as well as social CRM.

The requirement of an android phone to use this feature on a computer.

Besides all such exalted features, there is a little disadvantage too and it is that the “Your Phone Companion” app can be installed in the Android 7.0 and above version devices only.

So as to use this feature, you need to have an Android 7.0 or above Smartphone.

Well, Microsoft has also given a clue in the event that in the next updates, the users will be able to mirror their Android screens on to their Windows 10 screens and can operate your phone through the Laptops Keyboard and Mouse.

Thus, Microsoft has really made Windows 10 your new best friend if you have an Android Phone.

The VR Backpack is The Closest Thing We Have To True Virtual Reality

The VR Backpack is the Closest Thing We Have to True Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) has come a very long way in a few short years, and its meteoric rise has meant that the technology has advanced leaps and bounds. Apart from the gaming industry, VR is becoming an indispensable tool in other industries, like healthcare, construction, sports, and the auto industry, where Siddharth Kashyap discussed how VR is valuable as a training and design tool. But, while a truly realistic VR experience requires a tethered connection to a stationary PC or laptop, a new VR evolution, the VR backpack is set to become a game-changer offering total VR freedom.

Why VR Backpacks

VR backpacks include features and components found in the highest-end gaming PCs and laptops but redesigned into a smaller, lightweight wearable chassis where the only limits are how big of an area you can play in and the backpack’s battery life. They are built to be durable and specifically engineered with VR in mind: from specialized designs that optimize airflow away from the body to hot-swappable batteries for extended use and the position of the various ports.

Additionally, due to their powerful RTX Nvidia GPUs, VR backpacks also meet and even exceed the minimum industry standards for performance set by major VR manufacturers like HTC, Oculus, and Valve. With this in mind, companies like HP, and MSI, among others, have come up with what is essentially a powerful mini PC you can strap to your back, for a truly immersive VR experience.

HP VR Backpack G2

HP has had a few VR backpack offerings on the market in the last couple of years, from the HP Omen X to the business-orientated HP Z VR Backpack G1 Workstation, but their latest, the HP VR Backpack G2 crams the latest hardware and is touted by Gizmodo as the world’s most compact VR desktop. Updated with an 8th gen Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia RTX 2080 with 8GB of dedicated GDDR6 memory and 16GB of system memory, the result is a powerful PC for a wide range of applications.

From gaming to development, HP’s latest backpack delivers the closest thing to true VR freedom. This is why the HP VR Backpack G2 is built for both commercial as well as home use, making it a potentially useful tool for architects, museums, retailers, and virtually any business that can come up with a way to leverage it. The HP backpack can also be used as a valuable training tool or 3D development station. The only downside is the one-hour battery life, however, with hot-swappable batteries you never have to take more than a quick break to extend your VR session.

MSI VR One Backpack PC

Unlike the HP G2, MSI’s VR backpack looks like a futuristic powerpack right out of a sci-fi film. The VR One Backpack PC is a sleek and aerodynamic powerhouse, that weighs just 3.6Kg. Unlike HP’s latest offering, however, MSI’s guts are a generation older, with an overclocked 7th gen Core i7 and Nvidia 1070 GTX GPU. Having said that, it’s still powerful enough to handle the most intensive VR games, but you won’t be able to take advantage of the RTX’s real-time ray tracing, AI-based scalable performance, and programmable shading.

While MSI’s product is less of a dual-purpose design than the HP system, and it’s hot-swappable batteries are part of the main body, it can still be used as a desktop PC when needed. Where the VR One excels, though, is with its 90-minute battery life, and price around $1,600 – $1,700 that’s almost half that of HP’s. At $3,200 MSRP, the HP will be out of reach for most casual gamers, but its performance will appeal to hard-core gaming enthusiasts, developers and businesses that require the walkabout freedom afforded by a high-end VR backpack.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Named Fortune's Businessperson of The Year 2019

Microsoft’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Satya Nadella has occupied the top position in Fortune’s Businessperson of the year 2019 list which was released by the American business magazine, Fortune. It has ranked the business leaders based on the challenges they have faced in running their organization. Nadella was not the only Indian who was present on the Fortune’s list, there were two more Indians i.e. Mastercard’s CEO, Ajay Banga who got the 8th spot and Arista head Jayshree Ullal who took 18th spot. They both were also among the top 20 Businessperson of the year 2019 besides Nadella.

Fortune’s list featured 20 business leaders in totality

Fortune’s annual Businessperson of the Year list features 20 business leaders in all “who tackled audacious goals, overcame impossible odds, found creative solutions”. Among the leaders featured in the list, Nadella received the top spot.

Kind words dedicated to Nadella by Fortune

“In a year dominated by political chaos and bluster, it was a rare brand of steady – even quiet – leadership that won the day in the business world. And no one epitomizes that brand of obsessively results-driven, team-based leadership more than our new No. 1 Businessperson of the Year,” Fortune said.

Fortune comments on his hard-work and dedication towards the company, Microsoft. He’s neither a founder like Bill Gates, nor a big-personality sales leader like the predecessor, Steve Ballmer, but it’s his sheer hard work that brought him to the CEO’s chair in 2014.

Fortune also mentions that Satya never worked on Finance

Fortune also told that Satya Nadella never took training on Finance which is an important training ground for other CEOs. He fought the competition within the Microsoft well since his joining in the year 1992.

Satya took over the position of Microsoft’s CEO in February 2014. That was the time when the company was not doing well. Their smartphone business wasn’t going good and consumers were not happy from their performance despite being innovative.

Satya made some noteworthy changes after joining the company

On joining the company, Satya has changed many things to bring the company’s growth back on track. Since then, the company is showing considerable growth by generating good revenue.

We wish all the best to Satya Nadella for bringing the significant change to Microsoft and congratulate him on gaining the top spot by standing out from the crowd.
