Zac Bowden, a reliable Microsoft leaker who has been the source of many Duo rumors in recent times and original reporting, has another scoop. Surface Duo production has started and will begin shipping to customers the week of August 24th. ;-)
Hey Microsoft, I was finally able to successfully upgrade Windows 10 from 1809 to 1909 today. Hopefully, this bodes well for 2004.
I get Microsoft wanting to temper expectations for the developer edition this spring. They want to message it is rough and only for developer’s and enthusiasts. A soft launch that’s not for the general public, yet. Why can’t Microsoft just say that?
· Microsoft will not have a version of Windows called “Windows 10X,” nor will Duo run on “Android.” Microsoft’s modern OS will be called Edge OS
· There will be a huge scandal involving collusion between tech media and Big Tech
· The breath of corruption in online comments and fake accounts working on behalf of Big Tech will be exposed
· The real reason that Sergey Brin and Larry Page stepped down from Alphabet (Google) will make headlines
· Brad Smith will fire Frank X. Shaw
· Facebook will be the main target of antitrust investigations in the U.S.
· Microsoft will be ordered to sever all ties with Windows Central
· Apple will pay billions in the App Store monopoly case
· Bezos will leverage his billions and the Washington Post to try to defeat Trump
· There will be many negative comments and down votes by Microsoft employees on this post
· And, of course, the obligatory huge data breach of some company, but no one will go to jail.
A recent TechRepublic article had Windows 8, Windows RT, and Windows Phone. As we wrap up the decade, what makes your list?
What are the ethical obligations of tech journalist to disclose when they’ve signed NDAs when talking about various subjects? Windows Central is the worst, but most are not much better.
· “According to industry insiders…”
· “My sources are saying…”
· “I’m hearing rumors that…”
· “This is just speculation, but…”
· “We’ve ‘discovered’ the latest patent filings”
· “I’ve heard whispers that…”
· “Code has been found that suggests…”
· “What I would love to see is…”
· “We’re only guessing here, but…”
· “What they should do is…”
This is B.S.
I know everybody needs to make a buck, but carrying water for a tech company and acting as a propagandist to guide the narrative is shameful. “Access Journalism” in the form of pre-release products and information (talking points) in exchange for signing an NDA.
Should a real tech journalist ever sign an NDA? Or, at least, disclose it?
