The company’s watchers Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott has announced some changes which could be seen for the next generation windows and calls it “Threshold” and could be available in our PCs by 2015.
Threshold is said to focus on security which will be possible by a common core or SKU’s and as told by Foley to be “Modern”, It is also said to focus on Windows store app. Threshold is also set to be a more traditional consumer SKU’s which gives a hint about the new Windows would follow its predecessors tradition of Windows 8.1 RT,Windows 8.1 and Windows 7.
Paul pointed out that the start menu will also bounce back on the later versions and also spotted that it would appear only on those products versions that support desktop, which he thinks would make sense of the concept of desktop.
Thurott pointed out that ”When you combine this information with Mary Jo’s SKU info, you can see that Microsoft is, if not moving forward per se, at least continuing to do the right thing and responding to complaints. And given the changes in the groups responsible for Windows, this wasn’t a given at all. It’s a good sign.”
Which s hows that Microsoft is not ignoring its clients and rather fixing the bugs and the problems of the users.

Facebook is testing out a new feature that displays the “Top post from the month” in the News feed.
This feature is shown to me over the couple of days, but on the first time i think that this feature rolled out to all. But when I asked my friend about this feature he said that he haven’t see this kind of feature then, I got some of the snaps of the new feature and put it here.
Over the past couple of years we got various features rolled out by Facebook,starting from gift to your friend and Graph search from which users can search about their friends and others in more natural language and get the results. More recently Facebook tested out new features like Instapaper/Pocket-like ‘Save for Later’ feature and Timehop-Like Feature.
It seems clear that Facebook wants its users engaged, and have a pleasant user experience.

Samsung launched its 1TB mSATA solid state drive, part of its 840 EVO series,which it claims to be the smallest in the market. The disk is much smaller than its conventional 2.5 inch counterpart and is best used for notebooks and other small computers.
Conventionally manufacturers use two SSDs one for the OS and the other 2.5 inch for memory storage with the Samsung’s new drive this can be done with only one disk and be able to still fit a lot of data and space.
According to Samsung the new drive does not compensate with performance and gives a maximum read and write speeds of 540MB/s and 530MB/s respectively, which gives a neck to neck competition with the 2.5 inch drives.
Samsung kept in mind for the users wanting lesser versions of the drive and has even bought its drives in 120GB. 250GB, 500GB respectively. unfortunately the prices for the drives has not been announced and will definitely not be easy to fit in the pockets.
