Happy #Windows10  Day! :)

Here is a "Windows 10 Quick Guide" (from MS) that goes over all the features.  https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7SWpljqhezceFUwU194WUhNS1k

Have you upgraded yet? 

Yes, that is a Ninja Cat riding a T-Rex.  More about that here:  http://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwindows/2015/07/21/a-fun-surprise-for-windows-insiders/

According to brand new video by Apple, if you have an +Android phone...you don't have apps (only an iPhone will have amazing apps...you have some sort of crummy knock offs apparently).  Sorry to break it to you Android guys, but don't worry, you can join me and others with our Windows Phones who apparently don't have apps either.

+Stephan Kieu more for Apple's campaign to win over non-techie Android users.  They have massive marketshare in the U.S., but not worldwide.

Today, on Independence Day, let us give thanks and always remember the sacrifices that were made against the alien invaders.

This young woman (Malala Yousafzai) is amazing.  Be sure to watch the whole interview.
Jon speaks out about the church massacre in Charleston, S.C., and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai discusses the documentary "He Named Me Malala."

To Fatema Zohora, you only linked your comment, so I couldn't respond directly to you.  The answer is "yes" it can (full article here:  http://www.alanpeto.com/tech/microsoft-surface-tablet).  But it's a moot point...Microsoft isn't making this anymore, so the other version would be the new Surface 3 which is at the same price point.  Check it out! :)

In honor of #Windows10, let's "Start Me Up!" with a flashback to the last huge Windows release: #Windows95 :)

Still love my Lumia 1520.  Honestly, not sure if the new flagship devices coming out this year would be enough for me to upgrade (the device still feels, and operates, like a flagship...that's impressive).  Side note:  this device is 2 years old (2013) and still fast, responsive, 20mp camera with amazing photos, etc.  (plus free Windows 10 upgrade later this year)

+Alan Peto I think they'll merge the Chrome OS desktop into Android eventually and have it happen but only time will tell.

To +Americanjazzlady:  You only linked your comment, so I couldn't reply directly back to you.  Yes, using Windows 8.1 and no issues...not sure what you've heard or read (in-fact, everyone recommends the latest version 8.1 Update 2 provides the best experience that Windows 8 didn't have https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJd84yfVZI4).


For your other question...yes, enabling Enhanced Protection Mode is a great way to go...just recognize that will impact certain websites you may go to.

So the "+YourName" is gone on the Google bar.  Now it's just your first name and doesn't like to Google+.  This comes shortly after Google said Google+ isn't dead, but they are killing off linking to it everywhere.  Um...

+Alan Peto I'm pretty sure that they have some sort of paid services for Google+ for brand pages. Also they just released a new Google+ Collections commercial I guess.

Helping you be productive, empowered, and maximize your life.
Introduction
Hi, I'm Alan.  I'm a writer, designer, and researcher. 

You'll find me making articles and videos about making your life better:
  • I'm a Productivity Specialist, empowering you by helping you get stuff done.  You'll learn about organizing methods, productivity techniques, and how to use technology (and not it using you).  You can find my productivity articles here:  http://www.alanpeto.com/productivity/ and my technology articles here:  http://www.alanpeto.com/tech/

  • Life isn't always about being productive with material things.  I also write about Buddhism to make it less complex, easier to understand, and not tied to any religious dogma (after all, Buddhism is simply understanding "life").  Many have used Buddhist teachings to become amazing productivity gurus, such as former Apple CEO Steve Jobs.  http://www.alanpeto.com/buddhism/
