Microsoft introduces Windows 10X for dual-screen devices

At its annual Surface hardware event in New York, Microsoft today announced the expected set of updates to its existing hardware lineup. The biggest surprise, though, was surely the announcement of the company’s dual-screen Surface Neo, which will go on sale before the 2020 holiday season. To make this kind of dual-screen device possible, Microsoft also built a new version of Windows 10: Windows 10X.
Microsoft says it’s announcing the hardware and software today in order to get it into the hands of developers ahead of the launch.
Just like HoloLens, Surface Hub and Xbox use the core technologies of Windows 10, the dual-screen Surface, too, will run this new version, as will dual-screen devices from Dell, HP, Lenovo and other partners. Unsurprisingly, these devices — and Windows 10X — will feature improved pen support (and a virtual keyboard).

Microsoft teases Neo dual-screen Surface, set to debut holiday 2020

Windows 10X is the result

HP Shutting Down Default FTP, Telnet Access To Network Printers

Security experts consider the aging FTP and Telnet protocols unsafe, and HP has decided to clamp down on access to networked printers through the remote-access tools. From a report on PCWorld: Some of HP’s new business printers will, by default, be closed to remote access via protocols like FTP and Telnet. However, customers can activate remote printing access through those protocols if needed. “HP has started the process of closing older, less-maintained interfaces including ports, protocols and cipher suites” identified by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology as less than secure, the company said in a statement. In addition, HP also announced firmware updates to existing business printers with improved password and encryption settings, so hackers can’t easily break into the devices.

HP’s new industrial 3D printer is focused on prototyping and small-run production

HP Jet Fusion With a still unannounced price and a footprint the size of a washing machine (as The BBC handily points out), the Jet Fusion 3D 4200 is big and (most likely) expensive. But HP is also positioning the big ole industrial machine as an entry into a new paradigm for 3D printing, calling it, “the world’s first production-ready 3D printing system.”

HP to ‘sunset’ Helion Public Cloud in 2016

clouds cloud sundown sunset

HP is going to shut down its cloud business, and this time it means it. Seriously. The company’s executive, Bill Hilf, wrote a post on the HP blog, where he announced that the Helion service will be put out of its misery next year.

“We will sunset our HP Helion Public Cloud offering on January 31, 2016”, he writes. Instead, the company will focus on turning its hardware gear into the building blocks for private enterprise clouds.

“As we have before, we will help our customers design, build and run the best cloud environments suited to their needs — based on their workloads and their business and industry requirements”, he adds.

“To support this new model, we will continue to aggressively grow our partner ecosystem and integrate different public cloud environments. To enable this flexibility, we are helping customers build cloud-portable applications based on HP Helion OpenStack® and the HP Helion Development Platform”.

According to the blog post, Hewlett-Packard will expand its support for Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure — two clouds that have run the IT titan out of town.

“We also support our PaaS customers wherever they want to run our Cloud Foundry platform — in their own private clouds, in our managed cloud, or in a large-scale public cloud such as AWS or Azure”.

“All of these are key elements in helping our customers transform into a hybrid, multi-cloud IT world”, Hilf boldly states.

“We will continue to innovate and grow in our areas of strength, we will continue to help our partners and to help develop the broader open cloud ecosystem, and we will continue to listen to our customers to understand how we can help them with their entire end-to-end IT strategies”.
