Obama’s proposed hacking law

Next week, Obama is expected to unveil an update to the US’ CFAA law against hacking in a State of the Union address, hot on the tail of Sony’s massive hacking attack that unfolded in late 2014. A draft version of the new law has been published on the White House website and gives us a look into a scary future in which clicking a single link could make you complicit in committing a hacking crime. A letter accompanying the proposal dated January 13 introduces the new law to Congress for discussion. Remember when Sony wanted to sue Twitter (and individual users) who posted screenshots or links to its stolen data? According to Errata Security, these new laws could pin you as a “racketeer” who willingly participated in hacking if you were one of those users (or if you clicked one of those links); punishable by up to 10 years in jail. Didn’t click a link? There’s plenty of other ways you could be in legal trouble; Errata points out that something as trivial as being in an IRC channel where others are discussing a hack or having an online conversation with a “hacker” could make you a member of a “criminal enterprise” which would allow the FBI to confiscate all your electronics. The above piece of legislation also could cover data like email address and password dumps that might be found on services like Pastebin...Get the details by visiting windows8newsinfo forum.

New details surrounding Microsoft’s Spartan browser have surfaced on the internet indicating that the new browser may set new standards in internet browsing. Microsoft Corporation’s upcoming internet browser, dubbed "Spartan" has started to gain attention as more details about the browser’s features have begun to surface on the internet. Spartan will be one of the major elements of Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 operating system and is set to adopt a variety of enhanced features that are currently not present in competing browsers such as Google Inc.’s Chrome. According to a report by the The Verge, people close to the matter have said that the Spartan web browser will be heavily linked to Microsoft’s Cortana digital assistant. Moreover, current features that work with Bing in Internet Explorer will start using the Cortana interface in Spartan. Microsoft has already revealed that Cortana will form an integral part of the Windows 10 operating system. Cortana will allow users to search the web directly and access information such as flight details, hotel bookings directly from the new tab interface being touted for Spartan. A separate feature of Spartan allows the grouping of tabs in order avoid the general untidiness associated with numerous tabs in the browser. The tabs can be grouped together according to a user’s preferences, for instance users can have one group for work related tabs while the others grouped under leisure...For more visit our forum.

In the past couple of days, we are starting to receive more information about the new web browser codenamed ‘Spartan’ Microsoft is building for Windows 10. Today, the Verge reported some new features that will be part of the Spartan web browser. Some of them are not yet available on any other web browser in the market. Find the summary of features that will be included in Spartan. Remember the Courier tablet video? An user can annotate a webpage or clip a webpage by marking it with stylus and share it with others. Spartan will include the same level of inking support that allows users to annotate a web page with a stylus and send the notes and annotations to a friend or colleague.

Since Cortana will surface information on flights, hotel bookings, package tracking, and other data, when a user tried to search something related to it, Cortana will directly provide the answer.

Autonomous Mercedes-Benz F 015

Mercedes showed a car of the future at the CES 2015 with the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion Car. It drives by itself. Do we really want that? Mercedes-Benz premiered at the CES 2015 the Mercedes-Benz F 015 Luxury in Motion research vehicle. With this self-driving luxury sedan Mercedes-Benz tries to illustrate how the car is growing beyond its role as a mere means of transport and will ultimately become a private retreating space. This new way of traveling gives passengers the freedom to use their valuable time on the road in manifold ways says Mercedes, but will we ever be completely at ease while a car is driving by itself? "Anyone who focuses solely on the technology has not yet grasped how autonomous driving will change our society. The car is growing beyond its role as a mere means of transport and will ultimately become a mobile living space," explains Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. With the S 500 INTELLIGENT DRIVE and the Future Truck 2025, Mercedes-Benz has already made the vision of autonomous driving reality. The new research vehicle F 015 Luxury in Motion has its world premiere at the Consumer Electronics Show, and provides a concrete example of the visionary ideas the company is developing with regard to autonomous driving of the future...Further details can be found at windows8newsinfo forum.

New Windows 10 Build

January promises to be a really busy month for Microsoft, buoyed no doubt by the special Windows 10 event that is on track to be held in just a few weeks’ time. And not only can we expect answers to a lot of questions regarding the upcoming OS, along with a glimpse into what’s cooking for a lot of other Microsoft solutions like Windows Phone 10 as well as a bit of a gaming, we can also look forward to a new preview version of the operating system. Gabriel Aul, the head of the Windows Insider program, generously confirmed this in a tweet, although he stopped shy of providing any further specifics. Well, apart from the usual and obligatory mention that we should brace for plenty of fixes. Just as a refresher, this new build of Windows 10 will only be available to those of you that are running build 9879, as Redmond made clear several times already. Obviously, some people are happily enjoying two newer versions that leaked recently. We’re talking about build 9888 and 9901 that come with a bunch of improvements. But this new official new version that (hopefully) will be made available later this month is sure to offer a much more refined and streamlined experience once it arrives...Follow this and all future releases up to and including Windows 10 General Availability later this fall at windows8newsinfo forum.

Users Wary That Free Windows 10

Ads, Perhaps the most divisive factor in the online world. Microsoft is apparently toying with the idea of a free Windows 10 option for users, but this has created a bit of a panic among users. Some feel that going this route might open up advertisements on the desktop. Amazon apparently does this with their Kindle line of tablets, allowing the option of removing ads with a small one-time payment. And although, Redmond has only said that they plan on being creative when it comes to pricing of their next OS, it is no yet clear if Windows 10 will be offered free of charge. Or at least, one variant of it will be free for users. Regardless, posts on the Windows UserVoice platform do confirm that some users are indeed afraid of such a thing, and want the operating system to be available as a paid product. Ads, for these users at least, could ruin the whole experience. The Start Screen along with a few Modern UI apps are the two likely environments where ads might show up, that is, if Microsoft pursues this strategy. But again, so far there have been no hints of such a scenario, this radical a change in direction. While Microsoft would surely want to monetize the free Windows platform if it ever happens, ads on the desktop might not really be the best way to go about it. Keeping a select few features premium-only might probably work better. Hopefully the upcoming January 21 Microsoft event that is actually focused on consumers should provide more details on not just the new features in development, but more details on how the software titan plans on approaching its new platform...Stay with windows8newsinfo forum as we continue following this rumor.

Google Dynamic Remarketing:

Have you not experienced the Amazon syndrome on your computer? Not only the online store can give you recommendations based on what you have been looking around on the web, it also gives you ads for the exact product you have been looking for – using Google Search. Normal PPC ads are displayed based on search terms used by users to reach a website. For example, if the user types “Best Tablets Under $200″, the website will contain ads related to tablets and electronics. If the user typed “how to troubleshoot Windows”, most probably, the ad could be a book related to troubleshooting Windows or a Registry Cleaner and likes. When it comes to Google Dynamic Remarketing, it is not based on search terms used to reach the website. It depends on the Doubleclick cookie residing on your computer that contains what products you were searching on Google ad partner sites and mobile apps. Thus, it remembers what the user was looking for and employs ads about that product. For example, if you were looking for a 5.1 speakers on any website, online store, YouTube or Google Plus page or even on a mobile app, the website displays speaker ads on different websites instead of using the normal PPC techniques. Though Google allows you to opt out of targeted advertising on different browsers and devices, it is hard to escape remarketing. There will be Double-Click cookies on your computer and ad networks will make use of that cookie to show relevant ads about products you have been searching for, on the Internet. You can visit the Google ad settings page to set your options. You can also save your opt-out preference permanently, with this browser plugin from Google and opt out of the DoubleClick cookie. It is available for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome web browsers...For more turn you attention to windows8newsinfo forum.

Windows 10 Could Enjoy The Same Success As Windows 7

The comparisons are already in! Industry sources have chimed on this before, comparing just how Windows 10 could be as successful as Windows 7, currently the most used OS in the world. But now analysts are also in on the same feeling. Microsoft’s modern operating system is still a work in progress as the time of this writing, but the whole world, it seems, is excited about this new version of Windows — thanks in no small part to how it tries to fix many of the annoyances users recorded in the original modern Windows 8. The more interesting bit is that companies are also showing interest in Windows 10, lending credence to the theory that the new OS might perform really well on the market once it launches next year. This is what Pacific Crest and Microsoft analyst Brendan Barnicle wrote in his note to investors, claiming that the new operating system could enjoy the same success as Windows 7, which, right now, still finds itself installed on well over half the desktop computers around the globe. So basically, the disappointing sales performance of Windows 8 could well be a thing of the past, by the time Windows 10 sees daylight, and this could only mean great things for the ecosystem. Not just desktop, of course, but tablets and smartphones too. Now only if we can get a confirmation regarding what Microsoft intends to call its next mobile OS!
