intel chipsetTo protect customers from vulnerabilities referred to as “speculative execution side-channel attacks”, companies including Microsoft, Intel and others are working together to plan and deliver updates. Microsoft has released updates to several versions of Windows to mitigate these attacks. Intel has also released microcode updates for all of Intel products launched in the past five years. However, Intel’s update only fixes Variant 1 issues. To fix the Variants 2 and 3, Intel is making changes to their hardware design. Intel has redesigned parts of the processor to increase the levels of protection through partitioning that will protect against both Variants 2 and 3. Intel will deliver the updated hardware design beginning with their next-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (code-named Cascade Lake) as well as 8th Generation Intel Core processors expected to ship in the second half of 2018.

is it overIt has been barely 5 months since Windows Mixed Reality headsets were launched into a somewhat expectant market. The headsets promised low prices, ease of setup and support for lower-spec PCs which would easily expand the small VR headset market. Instead, the nearly identical headsets launched by a large number of OEMs have been met with a shrug by the market, with Microsoft currently struggling to maintain a 5% market share according to Steam’s data. In response, we have already seen deep price cuts, with the $449 HP Windows Mixed Reality Headset now available for $222 on Amazon and the Dell Visor only $253. The Register also reports that UK’s largest electronics retailer, Currys, has removed Windows Mixed Reality headsets from their shelves while retaining the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift devices. They also report that developers are not seeing interest in the headset, with few requests to port their software to the platform. In fact, developers were seeing more pressure to develop for standalone VR headsets such as the Oculus Go.Follow up on OUR FORUM.

upgrade nowEarlier in 2015, Microsoft officially released its new Windows 10 operating system. With the release, the company forced users to upgrade to its latest Operating System Windows 10 without the consent of users. The company had faced a backlash from the users when it tried to force them to upgrade to the company’s latest Windows 10 operating system without their consent. This forced the users to block the upgrade for as long as 365 days before downloading the latest version. Today again we are getting reports that some users on their PCs with Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) and Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) are being forced to upgrade to the company’s latest Windows 10 version Fall Creators Update (1709). This upgrade is happening for users who have turned off the Windows Update option on their PCs. The upgrade notification has come as a surprise to a lot of users, since the company is busy working on its next major update Spring Creators Update version 1803 which is scheduled to be released in April this year and is working on smoothing the Windows Upgrade path for its latest Windows 10 upgrade.

Essential really wants to solve the screen notch problem PDF Print E-mail

essential phoneIn a way, Essential is something of a pioneer. Before the iPhone X helped the world reluctantly embrace the screen notch, the company proudly displayed one atop its first flagship. Since then, of course, it’s become a feature, not a bug, with a long list of companies rushing to embrace it on their latest flagship. But Essential’s clearly hoping to solve the issue with a number of patents looking to stick a camera directly behind the display. The Andy Rubin-founded company has been on quite a patent run in recent months — but the ones pertaining to a “camera integrated into a display” are the most compelling of the lot. And if it comes to fruition, it could breathe new life into the company’s upcoming handsets after an admittedly slow start. The patent describes a multi-layered display with camera in which a “substantially transparent region allows light from outside to reach the camera to record an image.” The patent points to a potential application in which the camera is mounted behind the LCD. In the imagery accompanying the post, the camera is positioned in its customary spot up top — you know, where the notch should be. In another iteration of the same idea, the camera is located behind the screen’s color layer and “records the light from the outside colored by the color filter layer.” There's more on this posted on OUR FORUM.

windows 10 error codeBack in 2015 when Microsoft rolled out Windows 10, the company promised to keep all versions of the operating system up-to-date with fixes, improvements and security changes. Microsoft has improved the way it handles updates for Windows 10, as a result, the software giant is releasing updates more frequently. Microsoft recently released Windows 10 KB4090913 with improvements and fixes. Windows 10 KB4090913 (opens Microsoft Update Catalog) is available for devices with Fall Creators Update, and it has a bug that crashes some system when attempting to install this update. Windows 10 KB4090913 fails to install with error 0x80070643, and shows an error reading “we could not complete the update, reverting changes”. When the update fails to install, Microsoft reverts the changes and restores the previous edition of the Windows 10 operating system without removing any of the files. There are only a handful number of reports particularly from Reddit of failed installs hitting Windows 10 KB4090913. For some, their PC is stuck on a process of downloading and reinstallation, with no proper option to pause the process. If you will try to reinstall the update, it will fail again, and in some cases, the PCs are rushed into an infinite loop that doesn’t stop. More details posted on OUR FORUM.
Bose's AR glasses are all about audio, not video PDF Print E-mail

Bose's AR glassesBose announced today that it's getting into the augmented reality game. But Bose AR isn't about video, it's about audio and through a "wafer-thin acoustics package," the company says it can introduce a useful and relevant layer of audio into your everyday activities. Bose says the small audio technology produces powerful and clear sound and can be incorporated into wearables like headphones, eyewear, and helmets. "It places audio in your surroundings, not digital images, so you can focus on the amazing world around you -- rather than a tiny display," John Gordon, VP of the consumer electronics division at Bose, said in a statement. "It knows which way you're facing, and can instantly connect that place and time with endless possibilities for travel, learning, music and more. And it can be added to products and apps we already use and love, removing some of the big obstacles that have kept AR on the sidelines." Continued on OUR FORUM.
