A rundown of some of the news from the Microsoft earnings announcement. The Great Paint Fiasco of 2017 and how many claimed that Microsoft said it was killing Paint. But it didn't. Actually, they're going to put it in the Store. It's where all apps go to die. New Insider build just out -- PC-phone linking, Cortana voice commands, etc. Windows Insiders can now skip ahead to Redstone 4 if they want. That means the Fall Creators Update is done. Surface Pro 4 got a massive set of firmware updates over the weekend. Plus, a Cortana-powered smart thermostat. And finally, Adobe kills Flash. Well, WILL kill Flash.
