Microsoft Plans to Launch Windows 10

Microsoft announced that the version of its Windows operating system will be available July 29 for computer and tablet users. The new Windows 10 software will come as a free upgrade to people who already use Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 and will be available in 190 countries. Windows 10 will come pre-installed on Microsoft-compatible computers and tablets from July 29 and will be available for purchase later in the year. The move marks a major launch for Microsoft, after the relative failure of Windows 8, which was rolled out in 2013. The company has high hopes for Windows 10, which it wants to see installed in a billion devices around the world by 2018. Windows 10 is expected to feature a common base with which developers will be able to build apps that work on smartphones, tablets, PCs and desktops, and even Xbox.

Lenovo and Microsoft Make Devices Even More Personal with Cortana and REACHit

Lenovo and Microsoft at Lenovo Tech World announced a collaboration to transform the way people find their content in a new, more personal way with Cortana and REACHit. Lenovo announced and demonstrated these technologies to thousands of fans, media, partners and suppliers during the keynote address at Tech World. Lenovo REACHit extends the search capabilities of Cortana for Windows 10 devices with REACHit's ability to search for content across any connected Lenovo PC or tablet device running Windows 10 and many major cloud services. This deep, exclusive platform integration gives Cortana a much larger inventory of information to search, opening up an entirely new level of contextual search and giving users the most comprehensive, seamless and natural way to find their personal digital content. Cortana is the personal digital assistant available across Windows 10 PCs, tablets and phones that allows users to talk or type naturally to get things done. Cortana and REACHit extends the sources from which content can be found. Using a unique user-assigned Lenovo ID, Cortana and REACHit together access data about the content to retrieve a wide variety of a user's personal content - whether its photos, video, files or emails. Lenovo REACHit reaches across the user's personal cloud services and their connected Lenovo Windows 10 PCs and tablets to find the content. For example, a user wants to find a photo that she edited on her Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptop last week. Now she can access it while she's away from her laptop at the coffee shop by using her Lenovo ThinkPad 10 tablet. She no longer needs to go home and work on the laptop. And by using Cortana and REACHit, she doesn't even have to remember the name of the photo file - just the location where she edited it, or the date or another piece of relevant information. Cortana and REACHit search her personal cloud accounts including services beyond Microsoft and Windows like Google Drive, DropBox and Box. Without REACHit, users can only look for files on their device they are currently using and OneDrive. REACHit makes Cortana even smarter. Cortana and REACHit will be available as a beta when Windows 10 launches later this summer.
