Puts Focus On Cloud, AI — Microsoft Reorganizes

In a memo to employees laying out the reorg, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella called out AI as one of the technologies that will "shape the next phase of innovation". The feature is now limited to Microsoft's Outlook, Hotmail, Live, and Office 365 services-anyone who uses Gmail, Yahoo, or Exchange Server calendars is going to miss out. Panay's role makes sense, since he has already had broad involvement with products like Xbox, HoloLens and Surface. The RS5 would be the last Redstone release as the software giant will release new versions of Windows 10 with a name referring to the release date. One of the last public appearances made by Myerson was in December during the Qualcomm-Windows platform event. Last year, Microsoft laid the groundwork created to make Windows part of a recurring subscription business via Microsoft 365, which is a bundle of Windows 10, Office 365, and elements of the Enterprise Security + Mobility service. On the other hand, Azure sales grew by a massive 98%, Office 365 by 41% and Dynamics 365 by 67%. The company is not limited to Windows or Office products.

But, a week later President Muhammadu Buhari apologised to the girls' families, saying: "This is a national disaster". He also insisted that no Boko Haram prisoner was swapped in exchange for the girls.

The new idea for 2018 is to tie everything more closely to the cloud and the fast-growing Azure unit. Terry Myerson, the man behind Windows' growth so far, has resigned. It will be interesting to see if Myerson's directions are erased as quickly as he moved away from Elop's failing strategy. The company has its software edge when compared against primary competitors, Amazon and Google.

Huawei raises the bar with triple-camera phone and 40MP sensor
In the battery department, the phone draws its power from a non-removable user removable 4000 mAh Li-Po unit. The P40 Pro has a three camera setup with 40 megapixels (compared to the iPhone X and S9's 12MP).

Microsoft describes the tool as a "reference implementation for a Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) distribution installer application".

VW Atlas Tanoak concept could preview a pickup
The Volkswagon Atlas Tanoak concept is a pickup version of the popular Atlas SUV that VW is thinking about building in the USA. Tanoak is also 15.8 inches longer than the three-row SUV overall, with its 128.3-inch wheelbase adding another 11 inches.

Microsoft on Thursday announced a big managerial shakeup including the departure of the head of its Windows group as the technology pushes deeper into a future in the cloud. "The goal of this team is to drive platform coherence and compelling value across all layers of the tech stack", the CEO wrote in an email to employees released by Microsoft. Going forward, there will be a new "Experiences & Devices" division, headed by Executive VP Rajesh Jha. The new team will oversee all Microsoft's speech, vision, mixed reality, and other perception capabilities, and it will continue to build first-party experiences and cloud services for third parties on Azure. "He will work with me on the transition over the coming months", Nadella said. Two early tasks will be to detect whether AI systems have accidentally incorporated biased points of view and to make sure all Microsoft's efforts abide by the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation.
