Microsoft Wants To Do Away With Windows 10 Local Accounts

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Bleeping Computer: As time goes on, it is becoming increasingly clear that Microsoft is trying to make local accounts a thing of the past and push all new Windows 10 users to a Microsoft account.

The debate about racism and intolerance, about violence, hate and terrorism, and about the ways that all these things have been fuelled by the nation’s political climate. It should have been enough for Germany’s leading politicians to consider the life and death of Gö...

BMW Concept i4, the ICE-mimicking EV, Prepares for Debut

If you’ve taken stock of the latest electric vehicles coming out of Germany, you’ll notice a clear trend: they’re not futuristic machines. While the vehicles’ powertrains are unconventional, the bodywork is strictly by-the-book — there’ll be no confusion among onlookers as to what badge belongs on that e-Tron, EQC, or Taycan.

Maria Kirch

Maria Kirch was the first woman to receive credit for discovering a comet. But the credit didn’t come right away.
