Microsoft has quietly released a new utility called Windows File Recovery for Windows 10 version 2004 or newer. But here’s the thing: Windows File Recovery is a command-line application.

Hands-On with the New iOS 14 User Experience – Thurrott.com – Thurrott.com

OK, I wasn’t going to install iOS 14 this quickly. But then I rewatched the WWDC keynote. And, oh right. Live tiles. OK, not really. But in bringing widgets to the Home screen and expanding their capabilities to include multiple sizes, Apple has, sort of, brought that feature that Windows phone users still lament to…

Hands-On: Apple MacBook Air (2020) – Thurrott.com – Thurrott.com

I’ve owned several MacBook Air laptops over the years, and I certainly understand the appeal of its iconic design. But I just purchased a MacBook Air—and at great cost—about a year and a half ago. Why on earth am I buying another one? Why on earth indeed. The reason is that I have a daughter…

The Future of the Windows Subsystem for Linux – Thurrott.com – Thurrott.com

In Windows 10 version 2004, the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) picks up additional capabilities and performance. But it’s going to get even better next year in Windows 10 version 21H1.

Google Does It Again (Premium) – Thurrott.com – Thurrott.com

Two months ago, I explained why I believe that Google needs the Pixel 4a, its second-generation low-end handset, to be a hit: The Pixel series is a failure overall, and the firm has now sold fewer of its latest flagship phones year-over-year for two generations in a row. And there’s every indication that the Pixel…

Dell XPS 13 (9300) Review – Thurrott.com

While it’s not fair to say that the best gifts always come in the smallest packages, it’s absolutely true of the new Dell XPS 13, which manages to fit a 13.4-inch display into a gorgeous and very portable 11-inch form factor that is almost entirely devoid of usability compromises. This combination of size and functionality…

Microsoft Ignores Allegations of Theft – Thurrott.com – Thurrott.com

Last week, Keivan Beigi explained how Microsoft stole his package manager after offering him a bogus job. Now, Microsoft has responded.
