Windows Phone Share Drop in April 2016

It looks to me like Microsoft have decided to make Win 10 as good as they can on all device sizes, get the ecosystem as good as they can through UWP apps and easy converters from other platforms (ie stuff which is largely just as relevant to the desktop as it is to mobile so they aren’t putting money only in to mobile) and then (and only then) try and incent OEM’s to build mobile devices for the OS. Part of the encouraging OEM’s will be to release a reference device or two, in the way they have with the Surface line, but why launch new phones before the OS is ready. If OEM’s and the market get behind it then, then fine. If not, then they won’t have wasted too much money as most of the spend would have been necessary anyway for desktop Win 10.

Windows 10 Mobile coverage at Build 2016

Since its Windows on every device type, although they haven’t mentioned anything in the build specific to mobile, it is and will help mobile a lot. This build is aimed at “needing windows to loving windows” for devs, designers. The more people use windows, the more userbase the devs can target and make apps for. They are trying to solve the chicken and egg problem now.

Here Maps for Windows Phone to be axed

So my theory about this decision is, that HERE was once build using many private APIs they could only use because Nokia had deep knowledge of WP8 as an OS and maybe was even capable of implementing some APIs on their own. Now that Microsoft took over that part of Nokia and HERE belongs to a different company, they have no more information on this kind of API.

Windows 10 Atom z2760 fiasco

So you cannot upgrade to Windows 10, so what. Windows 8.x has worked fine for you up till now will continue to work until the device dies. Everyone goes ballistic because they can’t upgrade. The Intel Atom Z2760 was a locked down platform from the beginning and when buying it you should have realized that. Very simple, don’t buy anything with an Atom CPU in it.

Why Lumia 650 does not support continuum

Technical argument for impossibility of running Continuum on 650 is just a pretense. There are pictures on the web showing Microsoft personnel demoing Continuum on Lumia 735. This means Continuum is perfectly possible on Lumia 650 too. If after that demonstration some changes invalidated the possibility that was real, that’s so unfortunate but I doubt this is the case.

Will you buy Windows 10 Mobile device from non Microsoft manufacture?

I would like any manufacturer to make a Windows phone device if all the problems with Win10 were resolved. I know it has to be bugs and not everyone will be suffering issues I am seeing but at the moment I cannot make new folders (I have existing folders!) and when I install new lenses, I cannot select them from the camera app (selecting lenses shows none installed), I have to select them from the applications list. Finally, the frequency that apps crash just after they’re launched is out of control – not just talking 3rd party either, Calendar app, Skype, anything. Of course, those are just my own bugbears, many other people are suffering various other quirks that shouldn’t exist. Oh yeah, manufacturer would also have to have Nokia quality cameras installed.

Music Beat Making Software

Music production today uses a number of equipment including samplers, drum machines, live instruments, online beat makers, sequencers, synthesizers and live vocals. You can include pretty much anything in music today. As a producer, your main role would be to assemble a track. Putting together a track is an art which cannot easily be mastered. These tracks are usually called beats. That’s why producers are also known as beat makers. But with the rapid pace at which technology is advancing, the job of the producer is becoming less significant with each passing day.
