Microsoft in hot water over Windows 10 privacy in France   

Windows 10 Privacy, it seems like a never ending story that just won't get away. France's National Data Protection Commission (CNIL) served Microsoft with a formal notice on July 20, 2016 asking the company to comply with the French Data Protection Act within three months.

The claim? Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system is used for "collecting excessive data and tracking browsing by users without their consent". Additionally, the commission wants Microsoft to "ensure the security and confidentiality of user data".

What is Pokemon Go?   

Pokemon Go is nothing like the Game Boy game you remember -- it's a free mobile game that lets you see tiny creatures called Pokemon through the window of your phone, as if they existed in the real world. Then, you can catch them. ("Gotta catch 'em all!")

Windows as a Service: What's it mean?   

The idea that Microsoft would eventually unveil a subscription licensing model for Windows 10 -- the so-called Windows-as-a-Service (WaaS) model -- has been bandied about for a while now. This week Microsoft made that idea real, but only for enterprise customers. At its Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Toronto, the company announced the details of Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and Windows Enterprise E5.

Both of the new Windows 10 variations will be subscription options for Windows 10 Enterprise (which may explain why Windows in the enterprise was not part of the Windows 10 free upgrade program that ends later this month). Both Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and E5 will also bundle other Microsoft services, and include Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility + Security -- a set of tools for managing mobile apps and devices and integrating them with a range of enterprise cloud services.
