And now its successor, the Yoga 3 Pro is available, offering a fanless and silent Ultrabook experience with some interesting if controversial styling touches.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/lenovo-yoga-3-pro-first-impressions" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/lenovo-yoga-3-pro-first-impressions#comments Lenovo Windows 8 Windows 8.1 Yoga Hardware Mobile Thu, 30 Oct 2014 15:52:00 +0000 45701 at http://winsupersite.com Hands-On with the Xbox One Controller + Cable for Windows http://winsupersite.com/games/hands-xbox-one-controller-cable-windows <div class="field-deck"> Works great, just be clear what you're getting here </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Back in June, Microsoft announced that it would bring its stellar Xbox One wireless controller to Windows, just as it did previously with the Xbox 360 controller.

Not exactly </div> <div class="node-body article-body">If you're familiar with Windows 8, you may know that Microsoft added trackpad gestures in that release and that, on most portable PCs, the experience is more accidental and annoying than it is useful. So they're going to fix that in Windows 10, as is the case with so much else that went wrong in Windows 8. But contrary to what I've read elsewhere, Microsoft isn't copying Mac OS X trackpad gestures at all.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-details-windows-10-trackpad-gestures" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-details-windows-10-trackpad-gestures#comments Windows 10 Tue, 28 Oct 2014 15:46:00 +0000 45581 at http://winsupersite.com HP Stream 11 is Now Available for $200 http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-11-now-available-200 <div class="field-deck"> It's real.

These are important changes, to be sure. But other advances in Windows 10 rival and even surpass anything that Microsoft has ever attempted in the past. And with this in mind, it is very clear that Windows 10 isn't just another major new Windows release. It is inarguably the most audacious release in the history of the platform.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-most-audacious-release-history-platform" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-most-audacious-release-history-platform#comments Windows 10 Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:53:00 +0000 45471 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Preps Partners for Windows 10 http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-preps-partners-windows-10 <div class="field-deck"> Communication is the key to understanding </div> <div class="node-body article-body">It's no surprise that Windows 10 is coming, and that with this important release we're seeing a bit more convergence between PCs, tablets, phones, video game consoles and other devices. But for Microsoft's partners, Windows 10 is as much an about-face as Windows 10 is for Microsoft. So the firm has provided a set of resources for its U.S. partners that I think many others would be interested in as well.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-preps-partners-windows-10" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-preps-partners-windows-10#comments Windows 10 Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:58:00 +0000 45461 at http://winsupersite.com Windows 10 Tip: Disable Desktop Animations http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-tip-disable-desktop-animations <div class="field-deck"> And window shadows too, if you want </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Annoyed by the jarring window animations on the desktop in build 9860 of the Windows Technical Preview?

This is obviously a hot-button topic in today's post-Snowden world, but parsing through this post, I see a fairly evolutionary and even obvious set of improvements. Which doesn't do a thing to diminish their usefulness or necessity. Or the fact that these improvements apply to consumers too.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-details-windows-10-security-enhancements" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-details-windows-10-security-enhancements#comments Windows 10 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 15:59:00 +0000 45351 at http://winsupersite.com A Quick Look at Windows Technical Preview Build 9860 http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/quick-look-windows-technical-preview-build-9860 <div class="field-deck"> A pretty seamless, if odd, upgrade </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Now that I have finally updated all of my PCs to the latest Windows Technical Preview version, I can take a quick step back and see what we have here. In short, nothing profound, but a couple of nice functional additions, or more realistically, the start of a couple of nice functional additions. As Microsoft promised, the preview is coming in hot, and this build is not polished in any way.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/quick-look-windows-technical-preview-build-9860" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/quick-look-windows-technical-preview-build-9860#comments Windows 10 Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:50:00 +0000 45321 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Technical Preview Feature Focus http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-technical-preview-feature-focus <div class="field-deck"> Here's what's new in Windows 10 </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Now updated for build 9860!
