Google has revealed Android Oreo, the next major OS update. The software builds upon the success of Nougat, offering new features and upgrades to smartphones and tablets. If you have an Android device and want to know more about the Oreo update, here’s a quick rundown, including how to get it early.
Microsoft never fails to announce exciting new features for their products. In an effort to improve support for small- and medium-sized businesses, they introduced a series of new apps and enhancements for Office 365 during the Inspire conference in July.
When a Microsoft product reaches its “end-of-life,” the tech developer no longer provides feature updates, technical assistance, and automatic fixes for that product. Support for Windows XP, for instance, ended in April 2014. That said, recent malware attacks have caused Microsoft to continue support for their outdated operating system.
At the moment, Google’s upcoming operating system, Android O, has been released as a beta test for developers and is still a work in progress. Many are debating whether the successor to Nougat will be named Oreo when released. What we do know for sure is that the latest OS features extended battery life and an enhanced notification system.
The feature-packed Windows Creators Update might not have made its way into every PC yet, but Microsoft wasted no time in announcing its successor!

Windows 10 had a rough year. It’s been flooded with numerous complaints from users claiming that they were “tricked” into upgrading Windows 7 and uncontrollable OS updates. The new year is a time for new things, and that’s exactly what Microsoft is planning to do in 2017. It’s been speculated that Microsoft plans on addressing certain issues, but there are still many that are left unattended to.
Microsoft Outlook has recently gone through some major updates and renovations. The purpose of all the massive changes to this oft-used communications tool is simple: to improve user experience and make this a streamlined and easy-to-navigate communications hub.
When an archaeologist discovers relics of a long-forgotten dynasty, mixed emotions ensue. The thrill of stumbling upon something untouched intertwines with a slight dread of working with something you know nothing about. The same notion is applicable to smartphones, in particular, operating system updates.
Unlike those who attend Hogwarts, magicians rely mainly on subtle sleight of hand to convince others that they managed to make coins disappear into thin air. The same concept applies to ransomware. How can it complete its mission in a suit labeled with the word “Villain”? Nowadays, ransomware fashions various disguises that render it undetectable.
When most people think of the iPhone, an Excel spreadsheet isn’t exactly the first thing that springs to mind.
