Published

on

Microsoft today announced the launch of Windows 11, an operating system that reimagines the company’s core digital experiences in a move expected to enhance hybrid working and learning. With user experience at its core, Windows 11 will not only enhance productivity but boost student engagement and employee satisfaction, continuing to be the go-to platform housing Microsoft’s suite of productivity tools.

“For many years, Windows has enabled partners to design the broadest array of devices – across form factors, styles, and features – to power businesses, educate students and delight billions of consumers around the world,” said Nicole Dezen –Microsoft, VP, Device Partner Sales. “With Windows 11, we shall continue to deliver new experiences across our partners’ device portfolios. The next generation of innovation starts now.”

Windows 11 will modernise the overall user interface, while maintaining its familiar feel. It will focus on improving the way people interact and help them organise their daily tasks. Several visual enhancements in Microsoft Office will take advantage of Windows 11, giving a seamless and simple PC experience across applications based on language and system.

Some of the new developments in Windows 11 are:

  • Redesigned for productivity, creativity, and ease: Microsoft has simplified the interface design and user experience to empower productivity and inspire creativity. From the new Start button and taskbar to each sound, font and icon, everything has been arranged for a more seamless experience, whether a user is on a PC or an Android or iOS device.
  • A faster way to connect with people: Microsoft has integrated Chat from Microsoft Teams into the Windows 11 taskbar. Now people can instantly connect – through text, voice, or video – with all their personal contacts, anywhere, no matter what platform or device they are using.
  • Delivering the best PC gaming experiences yet: Microsoft Windows 11 unlocks the full potential of a system’s hardware with some of the latest gaming technology, including DirectX 12 Ultimate for breathtaking, immersive graphics at high frame rates; DirectStorage for faster load times and more detailed game worlds; and Auto HDR for a wider, more vivid range of colors, and a truly captivating visual experience.
  • A faster way to get the information you care about: Windows 11 introduces Widgets – a new personalized feed powered by AI and best-in-class browser performance from Microsoft Edge. Widgets delivers individualized content and a vibrant pipeline for global brands and local creators alike, in a way that delivers benefits to both consumers and creators.
  • All-new Microsoft Store for applications and entertainment: The Microsoft Store is the single trusted location for apps and content that allows people to watch, create, play, work, and learn. The Store has been rebuilt for speed and features an all-new design that focuses on ease of use. Not only will it make more apps available, but it will make all content – apps, games, shows, and movies – easier to discover.
  • A more open ecosystem that unlocks new opportunities for developers and creators: Microsoft Store will enable developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to publish their apps regardless of how they are built. Win32, Progressive Web App (PWA), Universal Windows App (UWP) and a host of other development frameworks are supported, which means more opportunity for developers to reach and engage larger markets. Microsoft also announced a progressive change to its revenue-share policies. App developers can now integrate their own commerce platform – or that of a third party – into their app, and keep 100% of their revenue.
  • Faster, more secure, and familiar for IT pros: For IT professionals, Windows 11 is built on the consistent, compatible, and familiar Windows 10 foundation. This includes Microsoft Endpoint Manager, Windows 10 Cloud Configuration, Windows Update for Business, and Windows 10 Autopilot.

SpaceX’s Starlink Internet Service to Leave Beta in October 2021

Published

on

SpaceX’s CEO Elon Musk tweeted on Friday that the company’s Starlink satellite internet network would come out of its open beta phase next month. That’s two months later than the August date Musk gave at Mobile World Congress, when he also said he expected the service to have “possibly over 500,000 users within 12 months.”

The Starlink system calls for a constellation of nearly 12,000 satellites in low-Earth orbits that will beam continuous broadband internet service. A terminal costs $499 and there’s a $99 monthly fee for service. It opened its public beta test in October 2020, and Musk said in August that SpaceX had shipped 100,000 Starlink terminals, which includes a satellite dish and a Wi-Fi router, to users in 14 countries.

As the beta ends and more countries are able to get access to Starlink, that 100,000 number is likely to grow, although it’s hard to tell when it might reach the half-million mark that Musk predicted. Starlink’s internet service is planned to be sold directly to consumers in rural areas around the world, among other customers, and it’s touting 100Mbps download and 20Mbps upload speeds.
