MSN is back. Microsoft is revamping its MSN brand with the introduction of several Bing-powered apps and a new homepage. Existing Bing apps like News, Sports, Travel, Weather, and Finance will all be rebranded to MSN soon, and the software maker is planning to release each app for iOS and Android. It’s just the latest move in Microsoft’s "mobile-first, cloud-first" vision, where a number of cloud-powered services and apps are available cross-platform.

It’s also a surprising move. Microsoft had largely abandoned its MSN brand in favor of Windows Live and Bing over the past several years, but now the company seems to be focused on MSN once more. A new MSN.com homepage, which enters preview mode today, highlights a number of services from the software maker and popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Settings and information from Microsoft’s Bing apps, which are currently available on Windows 8 and Windows Phone, will be synced across MSN.com, the new cross-platform MSN apps, and Microsoft’s Cortana digital assistant.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...

Tech is for girls... and always has been!

2017-09-18 10:00:00 +0100

Today, it's hard to deny that the IT and tech industry is a male-dominated field. Women earn only 28%[1] of computer science degrees, while the quit rate for women in the high tech industry is 41%[2], twice as high as it is for men. These two statistics would suggest that perhaps women aren't just discouraged from entering the tech field, but may find it a challenging environment to work in both in terms of treatment and pay.
