Microsoft launches Project Cortex, a knowledge network for your company

At its annual Ignite IT conference in Orlando, Florida, Microsoft today announced Project Cortex, its first new commercial product since the launch of Teams.

Microsoft Defender comes to the Mac

Microsoft today announced that it is bringing its Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to the Mac. Previously, this was a Windows solution for protecting the machines of Microsoft 365 subscribers and assets the IT admins that try to keep them safe. It was also previously called Windows Defender ATP, but given that it is now on the Mac, too, Microsoft decided to drop the ‘Windows Defender’ moniker in favor or ‘Microsoft Defender.’ “For us, it’s all about experiences that follow ...

Microsoft is running bizarre commercials that seem to trash its own Microsoft Office 2019 suite (MSFT)

Microsoft is running a new series of ads, called "The Twin Challenge," which pits the Office 365 subscription productivity suite against the more traditional Office 2019.  The idea is to show that while the names are the same, Office 365 gets updated more often and offers more features than Office 2019. It furthers the idea that Microsoft's main competition with Office 365 isn't Google's G Suite, but rather, older versions of its Office software. Still, it's bizarre to see Microsoft trash its ...

You’ll now need a subscription to get the best of Microsoft Office

Microsoft released Office 2019 for Windows and macOS this week, the latest version of its regular, non-subscription productivity suite. It’s the kind of Office that, ten years ago, you would’ve bought in a shrink-wrapped package at Office Depot. But it’s really not the version of Office that Microsoft would like you to buy — or that you probably want to have. That’s because at this point, Office 2019 is basically a limited version that doesn’t include the most interesting new features of i...
