The company unveiled the Windows 10 consumer preview on Wednesday, showcasing some of the new features in the latest version of the operating system that powers the vast majority of the world's desktop PCs. The developer preview has been available since Microsoft first announced Windows 10 in the fall, but it was buggy, limited in scope and very light on new features.
Importantly, Windows 10 will be free for existing Windows users running versions of Windows back to Windows 7. That includes Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and Windows Phone. Microsoft specified it would only be free for the first year, indicating Windows would be software that users subscribe to, rather than buy outright.
Microsoft Corporate Vice President of the Operating Systems Group Joe Belfiore showed off some of the new features in Windows 10. While Microsoft had already announced it would bring back the much-missed Start Menu, Belfiore revealed it would also have a full-screen mode that includes more of the Windows 8 Start screen. He said Windows machines would go back and forth between to two menus in a way that wouldn't confuse people.
Belfiore also showed a new notification center for Windows, which puts a user's notifications in an Action Center menu that can appear along the right side, similar to how notifications work in Apple OS X.
Microsoft Executive Vice President of Operating Systems Terry Myerson revealed that 1.7 million people had downloaded the Windows 10 developer preview, giving Microsoft over 800,000 individual piece of feedback.
Myerson explained that Windows 10 has several main intents: the give users a mobility of experience from device to device, instill a sense of trust in users, and provide the most natural ways to interact with devices."

In a major blow to the Washington Redskins, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday canceled six federal trademarks of the “Washington Redskins” team name because it was found to be “disparaging” to Native Americans.
“We decide, based on the evidence properly before us, that these registrations must be cancelled because they were disparaging to Native Americans at the respective times they were registered,” the PTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board wrote. The panel voted 2-1 in favor of the decision.
Perhaps this move will speed up the inevitable name change which was expected within the next few years."

Wow, going after Hillary, that is original!
Hillary doesn't need lousy tech company board jobs to wash the blood off her hands... at least not as much blood as Condi has to wash off.
Yeah, she's legitimate after she blames people in the "bowels" of the agency [NSA] she's a part of for her failures.
Oh, I get it... you think she's "legitimate" because other rich people like her, not because of an actual record of competence.
Yes, it was Condi's unpopular views that caused her to miss so many things, like the forged documents saying Iraq was trying to get weapons grade uranium from Africa. If she was more popular, rather than more competent, perhaps this would have shed light on the lies that led to the Iraq war.
It was just the most colossal screw up in modern history, sure, give Condi a pass, bro! Let her rehab her torture and war stained reputation on corporate boards!
Well, no. Me and my cronies aren't going to leave, and we will continue to oppose the involvement of those with blood on their hands. Condi doesn't bring anything but the stink of torture to the table. You're sooooo welcome to her.
We don't want anything to do with a corporation that has Condi on the board. We determine what we want our worlds to be like... and we don't want Condi Rice in our world. At all.
I want everything she touches to be radioactive.
She earned it.
Maybe since it is a sales position, there is a bonus structure of some kind.
If we're talking Indian, do we mean dot-com or feather-com?
Uh, no. This is a feeble understanding of HIPAA. HIPAA would only be involved with the information in the medical record, and violations occur when information in the medical record is shared in a way that HIPAA does not allow. There are many exemptions.
Googles records of a person's search, even a doctor's search, would not constitute sharing a patient's personal medical information(PMO) in a way prohibited by HIPAA.
The idea that google knows something has been searched, then by extension 'the government knows it', therefore an inference can be made about the subject matter of the search, therefore something was illegally shared in violation of HIPAA? No way....
The google searches occur because the PMI in the record doesn't match the physical evidence in front of the health care professional. If a doctor learns something about a patient's medical condition on the internet, the privacy afforded by HIPAA should apply, of course.
It is infinitesimally small. And whatever infinitesimal amount there is won't be solved by tougher voter ID requirements.
