I am hopeful many of the cool patents Apple have been granted will see light this year.
Windows 10 is the successor to Windows 8, three years in the making. Windows 10 Consumer Preview is being announced Wednesday. The Windows 10 Technical Preview was introduced earlier in September with “10% of the final feature set.” There are some indications of new features such as Cortana and system backup to OneDrive. The build being announced is named FBL_AWESOME.
