IDG Contributor Network: Microsoft Surface GO and Fire HD 10 fit together in the same bag

I’m a huge Fire user, I have a fleet of the things and virtually every model they make. The one I carry the most is the 10-inch Fire HD because it is best for videos, I don’t have to flip the pages as much when reading, and it does a better job, in my opinion, than the smaller devices with web pages particularly those with forms.

TSMC began mass production of these back in April. Apple’s smartphone speed advantage is becoming so significant that the company recently ran a TV ad (Unleash) to celebrate it.

Patch Tuesday’s coming: Block Windows Update and pray we don’t get fooled again

July 2018 patches for both Windows and Office brought bugs and bugs of bugs — many of which haven’t been solved, even now. We have even reached the unprecedented stage where the .NET team openly warned people against installing buggy updates, and the Monthly Rollup previews got shoved down the Automatic Update chute to fix bugs in the primary Monthly Rollup.
July was more galling than most months because the patches caused widespread problems for many, while plugging security holes for exactly zero widespread infections.
