Microsoft unveils its new LinkedIn app for Windows 10

Microsoft is now rolling out a new update to OneDrive on Windows 10 Mobile with some improvements and bug fixes. Now when in those PCs users try to install the March 2017 Creators update, version 1703, it fails.

Ever since the Surface Dial went on sale, browsing through the Windows Store for apps compatible with the radial haptic input accessory has proved to be a daunting task. Several people have reported the same problem occurring in their system. The Atom Clover Trail line of CPUs from Intel was part of the company's "Tablet Platform" built for the Windows 8 generation of tablets to compete with ARM processors. An HP Envy X2, for instance, renders the same message upon installing the Windows 10 Creators Update. According to one user who replied to the main thread, the Creators Update doesn't support the following CPUs: Intel Atom Z2760, Atom Z2520, Atom Z2560, and Atom Z2580.

Emirates and Flydubai Combine Network Operations
The airlines said the partnership would be rolled out over the coming months, with more details to be confirmed soon. Emirates cited fierce competition and a "relentless rise" in the USA dollar as the main factor in falling revenues.

The update is live for Windows Insiders on the Windows Store.

There appears to be no easy workaround to the hard-blocking, or developers haven't found one yet, at least.

Amazon's Alexa is now on the HTC U11

Other notable features include the ability to allow Hyper-V Vms to access non-volatile memory, improved networking between containers and a number of optimisations that significantly reduce the overall size of Windows Core by 20 per cent. Microsoft has also added a brand new "Battery Passthrough" feature that will let VMs have the same battery state as the host they are now running on.

It's not certain how many devices with Clover Trail chips were sold, although ZDNet guesses the number is in the millions.
