Microsoft out of band patch hits the day before Patch Tuesday

However, it's likely that Microsoft will extend 1607's date of demise, as it did to 1507 and 1511, to separate it from the latter.

Microsoft Surface-laptop costs 1149 euro (updated) - 05/02/2017 07:24 PMSeveral renders and images have been spotted on the web showing an unannounced Microsoft Surface-laptop. Well, we should expect Microsoft to showcase some minor updates. The event kicks off Wednesday, May 10th at 11AM ET / 8AM PT.

Today is Patch Tuesday, and Microsoft has started to roll out new cumulative update for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices running the Creators Update. Codenamed Redstone 3, the next update will include features like pinning contacts to the task bar and a new power throttling option.

However, that's not the only new feature that the new version of Skype for Windows 10 OS comes with.

Using the 18-month lifecycle, Windows 10's second edition, version 1511 - released November 12, 2015 - should also fall from support this month.

The vulnerability is particularly potent because of Windows Defender's nature as an always-on antivirus utility.

What are your expectations from Microsoft's Windows Phone? This would also allow Cortana's skills of voice-based features to be enabled into more apps. In December, an unexpected YouTube video popped up in Windows' YouTube channel, showing off a speaker from Harman Kardon that uses Cortana as an assistant, similar to Alexa in Amazon Echo and Google Assistant in Google Home.

The focus of Microsoft's Build developer show this week is expected to land squarely on cloud-computing and the new applications it opens up.

But in the last few years, Microsoft has refocused its efforts to be a builder of business technology, targeting in particular the fast-growing realm of cloud computing. Taken together it is clear that Microsoft plans to launch a smartphone this year that the company sees as very different that what is on the market already.

While Microsoft is bringing a full desktop version of Office to the Windows Store, we haven't heard much about the future of Microsoft Office yet. On that note, expect to hear a lot more about how far the Amazon Alexa-like Cortana Skills and device software developer kits have come since their announcement past year.

At Build though, the experts say Microsoft will be quiet on this front. With the support for Windows Ink in Microsoft Edge, students can make notes directly on a web page and share them with a classmate. He talked about how apps were about to become a whole lot more intelligent - the highlight was an app that could describe exactly what was going on in an area to the blind - but we also saw Cortana able to book a hotel room in Skype, and bots able to place a Domino's Pizza order, among other uses. This feature allows users to see 3-D content through the screen into the real world as Mixed Reality, using a simple RGB camera.
