Fall Surface reveal: Looks like London may be the place. Panos will pump it up at Future Decoded in late October. What are we anticipating? Surface Pro LTE, Surface Book 2 (or 3?). Andromeda: not yet. Microsoft extends its Windows 10 S to Pro upgrade offer. As part of an announcement about expanded Surface Laptop availability, Microsoft also revealed that it is extending the Windows 10 S-to-Pro upgrade offer by three months. Why now? And what does this say about Windows 10 S? Semi-related: Some Surface mini marketing materials leak, but there's no new info.
It's official: The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update arrives October 17. This is a bit later than we'd expected, frankly. Related: More builds, no more new features.
Windows 10 "Spring Creators Update" (RS4) testing begins. Story Remix Coming Soon to ‘Skip Ahead’ Windows 10 Insiders.
Office 365: Microsoft expands testing of Office desktop apps in the Windows Store. Microsoft is secretly offering some.
Office 365 Home/Personal subscribers a deal on Outlook.com Premium.
After the news that Cortana is "Alexa curious," we find out that Harman Kardon is not exclusive to Cortana. Oops. Sony among those offering Google Assistant in a smart speaker (in this case a gorgeous one)
Mobile: Now Google has a Signature PC program for Android phones. Speaking of which, what's going on with Signature PC at Microsoft?
