Windows 10 Mobile will be arriving installed ahead of Windows 10 desktop for a handful of Chinese Android smartphone users.
Microsoft would love to get some of Android's mobile market share, and here's one way they're trying to do it in China.

What I found most interesting is how the Internet is powering up the "sharing economy," Airbnb, Uber, and Thumbtack, which in turn is driving down both prices for rooms, taxis, and chores (Yea!) and "wages" (Boo!)

+Steven Vaughan-Nichols No, I don't. This is the trend that could do for conventional VCs what the Uber story did for taxi medallion owners.

How To Handle Negative Blog Comments, In 3 Easy Steps

The Fedora desktop looks good again, but the real neatness is in the server and cloud releases.
Red Hat's new Fedora Linux comes with a better desktop, but the real improvements are in the cloud and server updates.

This is a lovely shot of Discovery. I wish I could ID the mission from the payload, but I can't. Still, it's beautiful, and I do so wish we still had real low Earth orbit space transport capacity. Come on Virgin Galactic! Come on SpaceX!

At some point, our vision of the future turned into a colossal bummer. When did we stop building things and start blowing things up? Tomorrowland explains, and in the process, might give us all a more hopeful outlook.

Introduction
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has been writing about technology and the business of technology since CP/M-80 was the cutting edge, PC operating system; 300bps was a fast Internet connection; WordStar was the state of the art word processor; and we liked it!

Steven was also the first writer to notice this little thing called the Web and he thought it just might be important some day. Who knew!? :-)
