Apple's iPad needs its own OS to become, as CEO Tim Cook said, "the clearest expression of our vision of the future of personal computing," some analysts said.
Microsoft has created a $43 billion business, a potential Apple-and-OEM-esque company-within-a-company, that could be used to take up the slack if some of its computer-making partners falter.
Toyota has been testing a new automated driving test vehicle called Highway Teammate, with the aim of launching related products by around 2020.
Patch Tuesday, contrary to expectations earlier this year, survived after Microsoft yesterday delivered security updates not only for the legacy editions of Windows, but also for the new Windows 10.
Objective-C may no longer be the stylish language choice for Apple iOS and Mac OS development -- that mantle is being assumed by Swift, <a href="http://www.infoworld.com/article/2929599/application-development/believe-it-or-not-swift-debuted-a-year-ago-today.html">introduced in mid-2014</a>.

The more consumers that Microsoft puts on its Office 365 subscription rolls, the less it makes from each customer, data the company disclosed Tuesday showed.

Windows 10 is here - and many users (especially those who have been wrestling with Windows 8) are probably eager to upgrade. But even if you can get it now -- the upgrade will be sent first to <a href="http://www.computerworld.com/article/2944212/microsoft-windows/windows-10-release-date-delayed-itbwcw.html">those who signed up for the Windows Insider beta program</a> and then in "slow waves" to everyone else -- you may want to hold off.
Microsoft last week demonstrated how much of a black box a Windows 10 update may be to the millions of users expected to upgrade to the new operating system.
