During the Slide Ignite Edge IOSVenkateshNeowin, the Microsoft IOSVenkateshNeowin team announced the new Windows UI codebase for both desktop and Android/iOS platforms. This means you will now be able to use your Windows 8 device to interact with Windows apps that run on both platforms. The new codebase will allow you to access your Windows 8 apps with full-screen touch support on your Android and iOS devices. The new Windows UI will also allow you to access Windows Store apps with the same gestures that you’re used to using on your Windows 8 desktop.
Seeing believes that Slide Ignite Edge IOSVenkateshNeowin has included the new fangled ol’ee in Windows 10. For better or worse the Windows 10 ribbon of shame is the only one of the two remaining pairs that is still a live at least as of writing. While Microsoft’s most recent flagship incarnation isn’t quite ready for the scrap heap, the olde faithful is a bit of a flutter on the ethernet network. One of the more interesting aspects of the new shiny is the ability to use a Windows 10 PC without the confines of a Windows 8 desktop or laptop. The novelty aint bad. The best part is the only thing you have to do is unplug your Windows 10 PC from your Windows 8 desktop and enjoy the Windows 10 desktop of your dreams.
Whether you’re looking to spread the cost of a large purchase or simply need some extra time to pay, a Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) plan is a great way to pay. These arrangements allow you to split the cost of an item over a number of weeks. Typically, these plans are interest free.
However, you should be aware of the risks of using a buy now, pay later plan. You may face fees, interest charges, and difficulty getting a refund if you are unable to pay off your balance. Be sure to keep track of your repayment schedule to ensure that you can make payments on time.
Financial Technology Companies
Many big name retailers offer buy now, pay later financing options. These companies have partnered with financial technology companies to offer consumers these programs. Some companies offer longer repayment terms and lower interest rates.
While BNPL programs are relatively new, they receive little oversight from federal regulators. State regulators, however, have inconsistently regulated these programs. Whether or not you can qualify for a BNPL plan is based on your credit history.
You can apply for a BNPL plan online. Applicants fill out a short application, which may require your name, date of birth, and social security number. You can then be approved or denied in seconds.
New Codebase for desktop, Android, and iOS
During Microsoft’s Ignite session earlier this year, Microsoft executives were a bit giddy to announce the company’s plans to unify the Edge browser on the desktop, iOS and Android platforms. The latest update to the flagship browser boasts vertical tabs, sleeping tabs and a better way to manage your browsing data.
The company hasn’t provided any specific timetables for the new platform, but has teased its mobile counterparts with the big reveal in the form of public betas to be released in the coming months. A beta for iOS has already been tested and beta versions of Edge for Android are available on Google Play Store. During the Ignite session, Microsoft’s vice president of browser engineering, Darryl Brown, spoke about the company’s newest browser in a series of video clips. The presentation was short on details, but he did share the company’s plans to move all Edge browsers to the Chromium codebase, which is touted to boost performance and speed up new features for the mobile aficionados.
The company is also looking to improve the engineering process by unifying the coding into a single source of truth. This will enable the company to deliver new features faster and in less painful stages of development.
