In the takeover gamble surrounding Yahoo by Microsoft, both sides are still unyielding. Yahoo again rejected Microsoft’s takeover bid for around 42 billion dollars on the grounds that the bid was too low. The Redmond-based Yahoo had already set an ultimatum for April 26 at the weekend. If the transaction does not come about “peacefully” by this date, the software giant says it will not wait any longer and carry out a “hostile” takeover – and at a much lower purchase price. Insiders see Yahoo’s price drop of 2.2 percent to $27.75 as a direct investor reaction to the rejection…

Microsoft finally unveiled the Windows 11 branding today, with multiple updates to the user interface and how the operating system handles things. The most important thing to take away? Windows is more like Mac, with everything rounded and a new place for the Start menu in the middle of the taskbar. Those changes include a new Start menu, which looks more like your mobile phone’s app drawer than you’re used to on the desktop. The Live Tiles are finally gone, and only apps, documents, and searches appear in the uncluttered start menu. Nice. Image: Microsoft The Maximize button on each…

Microsoft yesterday unveiled the Lumia 650, a new business-oriented mid-range that stands out for its sophisticated design. However, despite this device having Office pre-installed, lacks one of the most useful features for those who work with their smartphone: Continuum. The reason is obvious: this feature is available for high-end hardware (Snapdragon 617 and above), but the Lumia 650 is only equipped with Snapdragon 212.

The answer is more obvious than expected, and you may not like it: the price (which is not even that low, € 239).…

And the second? It does not exist, nor will it exist, according to the latest information. As we anticipated, and perhaps this is the most important point, Microsoft…
