Windows 10 on the subscription? Microsoft ensures that only for businesses

Posted on May 8, 2017  in My Blog

A few days ago there were reports that Microsoft was changing the Windows business model and would no longer be selling it, but making it available for subscription. This is partly true, but fortunately, private users do not have to worry about it, because it will only cover companies.

This month will end up with a promotion, where users of older versions of Windows can completely switch to Windows 10 free. A few days ago there was information that could suggest that it was time to speed up, because after that period Microsoft changed its business strategy and converted Windows 10 into service, which would mean that instead of paying a one-time purchase fee, $ 7 a month.

I do not need to add that for many people this would mean having to resign from purchasing plans for Windows 10, but fortunately the information turned out to be not quite true.

Windows 10 will not be a service. However, Microsoft is preparing a special edition of Windows 10 Enterprise E3, which is exclusively for business. And here in fact there will be no longer a one-time license, but a monthly subscription of $ 7 for one job. In return the trader will be able to use all the functions and full protection afforded by the system.

Spotify differentiates on disc releases

Posted on April 11, 2017  in My Blog

Spotify introduces the announced variety of offerings to paid and free users. The first will get access to new albums two weeks before the rest.

Spotify is one of the few music services that works for popular artists for free. Of course, you can also pay for the subscription, but this does not affect the music offer, but only for additional options. But this will change now.

Music labels have long disliked the policy of the site, which provided the music they were able to listen to for free. They pressed for a change of strategy and finally got their way. Spotify has just announced that it is introducing a variety of musical offerings.

Subscribers to the service, who pay a subscription every month, get the latest albums of well-known artists so that they receive two weeks free of charge. The change of policy is part of a larger deal with the Universal Music Group, where certain albums will only be available for a limited time.

Artists will decide whether their latest albums will be available for two weeks exclusively to subscribers or whether they will be able to listen to them all at once.

I like to read, I do not always have time

Posted on March 23, 2017  in My Blog

Books are not just a form of data storage, they are mainly entertainment, relaxation and learning. You can spend some time reading during the day, but interesting reading can swallow up the rest. The Audioteka offers a convenient system combining a modern library with text files on the tablet and a smartphone with an android, with a sound note book – for listening, for example, when driving a car.

The app, currently only available on Android devices, allows the screen to display text and listen to audiobooks. The manufacturer named a new form of publication “Audiobook +” and existing Audioteka users to be able to use this feature, they should update the application.

With the launch of Audiobook + service began selling 20 items. Lem’s devotees will find “Return from the Stars” in the interpretation of the brilliant teacher, Rocha Siemianowski. There are guides, fiction and the Swedish criminal. There is also an interesting description of field trips – adventure, by Marcin Meller, read by Wojciech Mecwałdowski.

Reading from a tablet is rated by many people as inconvenient, but as many people claim that by omitting the “smell, taste and texture” of a book, tablet or reader has an advantage over the library in size. Books written on a memory card, whether in the form of a text document or as an audio release, do not weigh more than a tablet or a reader. Taking a few, a dozen or even a few thousand books with you does not require a moving company. Every smartphone and tablet holder will get it.
