IDG Contributor Network: Is it time to rethink Windows?

[Disclosure: Many of the firms mentioned are clients of the author.]It’s easy to forget that Windows was initially a shell for DOS before it went through a massive change in 1995 (after Apple made GUIs the next big thing). Microsoft dominated the market that resulted, of course. But this was a market defined by desktop hardware, where servers sat in the background and the idea of a terminal was mostly verboten. {Before the rise of the PC we had terminals tied largely to IBM mainframes that were far easier to maintain, arguably more secure because they couldn’t run viruses, and far more appliance-like.)As we move to a cloud-driven present where offerings like Azure define the space, shouldn’t we clean-slate a new client much as we did with DOS, Windows and iOS? Doesn’t it make sense to strive for a result optimized for the cloud world of tomorrow rather than the PC world of yesterday?To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft starts nagging Windows 7 Pro users about end of support

Microsoft will soon begin nagging users running Windows 7 Professional to remind them that the operating system is soon to be shelved."We are now extending the notifications ... to Windows 7 Pro[fessional] devices to ensure our customers are aware of the end of support for Windows 7 and can take action to remain productive and secure," says an Oct. 15 update to a company blog post first published in March.[ Related: Windows 7 to Windows 10 migration guide ] The original post confirmed that Microsoft would push notifications to Windows 7 systems in the months ahead - reprising a move it made in 2014 prior to Windows XP's retirement - but at the time, the company said nothing about limiting the on-screen alerts to Windows 7 Home Premium.To read this article in full, please click here

Flashback Friday: Give them a headache and they might be generous

It’s the mid-1980s, and this pilot fish is working on a project to convert his company’s payroll system from one proprietary mainframe to a newer model.“After converting the system, we did parallel runs for the same week between old and new hardware,” says fish.And lo and behold, the newer hardware comes up with a total payroll that’s 8 cents less than the run on the old hardware. An intense effort over a long weekend is required to uncover the problem. What fish’s team finds in the end is that the 8-cent difference is spread among three hourly employees— the only people who received pay raises that week.Digging into the calculation of the hourly rate, fish and his team discover that it’s calculated in COBOL to nine decimal places, and then rounded to three decimal places in an unusual way: The last six decimal places are split off, and if the value is greater than zero, the third decimal place is rounded up by one.To read this article in full, please click here

A revealing iPhone 11 headache

Sometimes, a mobile glitch is indicative of a much more pervasive issue. Such is the case with my recent iPhone 11 iTunes headache.I'll drill down into the details of the iTunes situation in a moment — along with a fix that Apple tech support swore didn’t exist — but the bigger problem here is the Apple experience. I've long been a fan of Apple's products, because the company's technology execution and GUI intuitiveness are exemplary. I'm not a fan of the experience delivered when upgrading — when I'm doing exactly what Apple wants to me to do. What should be a simple process is anything but.Not that this is a novel observation. My friend Jason Perlow wrote about his bad Apple Store experience last month. Having read that piece, I figured I would avoid the friction points he flagged by setting up the carrier situation beforehand and by avoiding the in-store Wi-Fi. Alas, Apple had more surprises waiting for me.To read this article in full, please click here

How the Pixel 4 epitomizes Google's hardware gamble

Allow me to play Mr. Obvious for a moment: The Pixel 4 is a phone. That much is plainly apparent — right?Hang on, though, because there's a twist: This week's Google event, at which the Pixel 4 was officially launched, wasn't really about phones. It wasn't about laptops, either. At its core, it wasn't about any hardware, in fact, despite being a "hardware event" in every outward sense.Sure, the physical products may have taken center stage, but those gadgets are ultimately all just vessels for what Google's really trying to sell us. This week's event was actually all about the Google ecosystem — and, more specifically, the Google Assistant that serves as the nucleus of almost everything Google introduced.To read this article in full, please click here
