Microsoft has been looking to fix the problem, and the company already promised that the upcoming Windows 10 update will feature an improved privacy settings menu, that will give users more control over the way their data is shared with Microsoft. However, the European Union still isn’t happy.

At least, they were, until the following video appeared online over the weekend.

Windows 10 Cloud could be Microsoft’s answer to Chromebooks

Windows 10 Cloud

While Chromebooks have managed to capture a respectable segment of the market in recent years, Microsoft's attempts at releasing stripped-down versions of its own operating systems have, by and large, failed miserably. Nevertheless, it appears that the company will dust itself off and try again in the coming months, as some mysterious code in recent Insider test builds shows a new edition of Windows 10 called "Cloud" listed alongside the Pro and Enterprise editions of the OS.

Trump's Immigration Visa Reform

President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban is wreaking havoc at airports across the country, but the administration still won't take any action to fix it in spite of all the negative feedback it’s received over the weekend. Judges, high-ranking Republicans, movie stars, and tech companies have expressed their concern with Trump’s ban over the last few days. But Trump is still defending his executive orders, and the Trump administration is working on a new immigration-related order that might deliver a blow to American tech innovation.
