Suggested January 2024 I Got A Close Look At The Mi Mix Alpha And It’s An Eye

Xiaomi kicked-off the Mix lineup back in 2023 with one purpose in mind – push the screen to the edge and minimize the bezels. The original Mi Mix was one of the first futuristic truly bezel-less phones to hit the market. It was a concept that worked and garnered immense popularity, such that it was followed by the Mi Mix 2 (which also landed in India) in 2023 and Mi Mix 3 with the highest screen-to-body ratio and the slider design back in 2023.

I’m not gonna lie, I was slightly enamored with the wraparound idea when I first saw the livestream but seeing the Mi Mix Alpha in person earlier this week reassured me that it’s definitely an eye-candy.

Futuristic Wraparound Display

Mi Mix Alpha features a 7.92-inch pOLED panel (same as the Galaxy Fold), which Xiaomi refers to as 4D Surround display. It boasts a 2088 × 2250-pixel resolution and an unbelievable 180.6 percent screen-to-body ratio. I couldn’t get too touchy-feely with this new concept phone but in my brief time, I realized that it should have a great in-hand feel but is more fragile than it looks.

I mean, it’s a concept and it can have its own shortcomings but the wraparound display technology is not quite there yet. We have already seen the display on the Galaxy Folds breaking even before launch. You have to be super careful with the Mix Alpha.

The display covers almost the entirety of the device, which is clad between the titanium alloy frame, which gives it some extra heft. There’s minimal bezels and the vertical strip which houses the cameras, Wi-Fi and 5G antennas, and more. It’s a ceramic back panel with sapphire glass on top to protect the camera lenses against scratches. You will find a pair of pressure-sensitive buttons on either edge, similar to the Vivo Apex (2023) concept, a power button up top, and a USB Type-C port at the bottom.

What’s the Rear Display for?

In addition, Xiaomi told us that the software has been adapted to the concept. It will use real-time AI scenario detection to display you relevant information when you flip over the device. It usually shows you the guide page with your calendar events, step tracking, and more. But, you can continue scrolling Instagram or Twitter on the main screen and find the cab details when you book an Uber, flight details while heading to the Airport, and more on the rear screen.

Mi Mix Alpha: Versatile Cameras

The camera system sits flush with the ceramic strip and packs a primary 108MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX sensor. It’s coupled with a 20MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide-cum-macro lens with 117-degree field-of-view (FOV) and a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom support. There’s also a laser auto-focus and LED flash sitting on the rear.

Specced-out Hardware

Finally, let me give you a quick brief about the internals. Mi Mix Alpha is backed by the Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, coupled with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.0 onboard storage. This is enough firepower for the crazy wraparound display that runs a custom build of MIUI.

Mi Mix Alpha is also equipped with a 4,050mAh nano-Silicon cathode battery that provides juice to your wraparound display. It supports 40W wired fast-charging via the USB Type-C port on board and no wireless charging due to design limitations. We cannot talk about the battery without giving you a look at the crazy charging animation, where the whole screen lights up and gradually fills up to show you the battery level. It’s one of my software features on the Mi Mix Alpha.

Mi Mix Alpha: Is This What The Future Looks Like?

Mi Mix Alpha is one of the most futuristic concept smartphones that I have had the chance to experience in person. It’s still unbelievable how Xiaomi has taken a flexible display and wrapped it around the entire body, sort of putting an end to the screen-to-body ratio war.

Now, Mi Mix Alpha may be a concept phone but Xiaomi is selling it for 19,999 yuan, which is around Rs. 2 lakhs in China. We did inquire the company about its plans to bring Mi Mix Alpha to India and well, the answer is a no-brainer. Mi Mix Alpha is not launching in India. For a closer look at the Mi Mix Alpha, check out our hands-on YouTube video:

Now, if you want a look at the Mi Mix Alpha, Xiaomi told us that it’s planning to polish the software and will soon start showcasing its futuristic concept device at its Mi Home stores across India. The devices will sit inside a glass enclosure (you won’t get a hands-on with Mix Alpha) but it will still give you a glimpse at what the future beholds.

The Mars Express Just Got Up Close And Personal With Phobos

Mars is lucky enough to have two confirmed moons, and both have some scary names. Deimos, the smaller of the two moons, is named for the Roman god of dread. Phobos is larger, and its name comes from from the Greek words for “fear” or “panic.”

However, excitement and joy reigned supreme when the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Mars Express spacecraft closely encountered the Red Planet’s larger moon. The flyby in September allowed the scientists to test one of the 19-year-old spacecraft’s newest tools.

[Related: Two NASA missions combined forces to analyze a new kind of marsquake.]

Aboard the Mars Express is the MARSIS instrument, which was originally designed to study Mars’ internal structure. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), the University of Rome, and the Italian Space Agency (ASI) built it so that it would be used more than 155 miles away from the surface of Mars, or the typical distance between the Red Planet’s surface and the spacecraft. A major software upgrade allows the Mars Express to travel closer to a celestial body’s surface. This update could shed light on the moon Phobos’ mysterious origin by peering inside the moon.

“During this flyby, we used MARSIS to study Phobos from as close as [about 51 miles],” Andrea Cicchetti from the MARSIS team at INAF said in a statement. “Getting closer allows us to study its structure in more detail and identify important features we would never have been able to see from further away. In future, we are confident we could use MARSIS from closer than [about 24 miles]. The orbit of Mars Express has been fine-tuned to get us as close to Phobos as possible during a handful of flybys between 2023 and 2025, which will give us great opportunities to try.”

The MARSIS instrument on ESA’s Mars Express spacecraft uses its recently upgraded software to peer beneath the surface of the martian moon Phobos. INAF – Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica.

MARSIS is famous for its role in discovering signs of liquid water on Mars in 2005. It sends low-frequency radio waves to Phobos or Mars with a 131-foot-long antenna. Most of the waves are reflected off the surface, but some travel through, reflecting at the boundaries between layers of different materials below the moon’s surface.

[Related: What is a ‘Martian flower’?]

Studying the reflected signals can help scientists map the structure below the surface, revealing the thickness and composition of the material, among other features. The waves can also show evidence of different water, rock, ice, or soil layers. However, more mysteries lie in the internal structure of Phobos, and the MARSIS upgrade could help solve the puzzle.

“Whether Mars’ two small moons are captured asteroids or made of material ripped from Mars during a collision is an open question,” ESA Mars Express scientist Colin Wilson said in a statement. “Their appearance suggests they were asteroids, but the way they orbit Mars arguably suggests otherwise.”

“We are still at an early stage in our analysis,” Cicchetti added. “But we have already seen possible signs of previously unknown features below the moon’s surface. We are excited to see the role that MARSIS might play in finally solving the mystery surrounding Phobos’ origin.”

MARSIS is operated by the Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica (INAF) in Italy and is funded by the ASI. The ESA and its Member States are part of the upcoming Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) mission to land on Phobos and return a sample of its surface materials to Earth. The MMX mission is led by the Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) and is scheduled to launch in 2024 and return its samples to Earth in 2029.

A Look At The Brand New Philips Hue App

For decades it was a thing of science fiction. Books and movies have long depicted their protagonists speaking commands to inanimate objects and having orders carried out instantly. I think it’s safe to say that most everyone, including myself, used to daydream of being able to control lights simply by giving a voice command from anywhere in the room, no longer having to get up and walk over to flip a light switch on or off.

Then Philips introduced their Hue lightbulbs and companion API, moving traditional light switches a step closer to obsoleteness by introducing the ability to turn lights on and off with a smartphone app, bringing us one step closer to making voice controlled lights a reality. When the second generation Hue bridge was introduced with HomeKit support, Siri gained the ability to control Hue peripherals, creating the ultimate ease-of-use scenario.

There’s almost a magical property surrounding Philips Hue lights. A room can be lit or darkened by a spoken word, its walls repainted in an instant, or the atmosphere changed to anything from a tropical sunset to an Arctic aurora. There’s really no limit to what one can do with a few Hue lights and some creative inspiration.

The one drawback to Philips Hue since its launch, however, has been the mobile app. While it gets the job done on a basic level, it’s been an eyesore and simply painful to use, which is why many users have turned to third party options such as Huemote for managing their lights.

That all changes with the new Philips Hue app, a complete redesign that has kept me from even opening a third-party Hue app for the past few months. This has been a much-needed update for quite a while now, but even with its late arrival, the app is well worth considering for usage on a day-to-day basis.

The new Hue app introduces several new features, including the ability to assign lights to their respective rooms, an organizing of alarms and timers into routines, and new Siri commands for HomeKit-enabled bridges. Rooms and new Siri commands are what make having Hue across the house and sharing its functionality with family members so much better. Additionally, the interface throughout the app has been completely redone, and the new UI is most definitely an improvement.


The first thing you’ll see after launching the app post-setup is no longer a Home screen-like collection of scenes that by default affect all your lights when activated. Instead, the Rooms screen lists all the rooms you’ve setup, with a brightness slider and an on/off toggle for each room, as well as a master switch at the top to toggle all lights connected to the Hue bridge.

When configuring rooms, users can select which lights belong to a room, and when turning a room on or off, changing its color, or setting a scene, only the lights in the room will be affected. This makes a world of difference when managing lights across the house, particularly with multiple Hue users in a house, as each individual can control the lights in their respective room without accidentally disturbing someone else by activating a scene that changes all the lights in the house, for example.

Tapping on a room from the main screen brings up two tabs, the first of which being for controlling individual lights. Here are listed all the lights assigned to the selected room, each with its own on/off switch and brightness slider, and selecting any of these opens the Hue color pickers for choosing the exact color or shade of white you want. Also available under this screen are the four most-used recipes, which, when tapped, only apply to the selected light. Switching to the second tab displays all the scenes in the app, and choosing one of these applies it to all the bulbs in the room.

For my personal use, the ability to group lights into rooms makes managing the lights in my part of the house far easier than in the previous Hue app, and as more and more houses gain Hue lights and as more and more lights fill each house, this type of light management is absolutely vital. The addition of rooms not only allows but encourages multi-room and multi-person setups in homes, and that’s exactly what Philips wants, and needs, for Hue to thrive.


The previous of the Philips Hue mobile app had alarms and timers, which would activate a scene at a certain time or after a certain time. The redesign categorizes these as “routines”, which also includes the actions that’ll be carried out when you leave or arrive at the house.

By granting the app location permissions, it can turn off the lights in a certain room or all the lights in the house automatically when you leave the house – or turn on select lights to discourage burglars by giving the appearance that someone is home. Alternatively, it can also greet its owner by turning on the lights as he or she arrives home.

Wake up routines can also be set for using Philips Hue to slowly fade up the lights to simulate a sunrise each morning in order to provide a more gentle rousing than most alarms would give, and users can set multiple wakeup routines for certain days or groups of days of the week, meaning a different routine can be set for the weekend than work days. This is similar in concept to Sleep Cycle, an app that tracks your sleeping patterns through movement or sounds and wakes you up when you’re sleeping the lightest. The app can also tie into the Philips Hue API to use a “sunrise” to wake its users more gently.

Finally, users can configure additional routines which have verbatim functionality as wake up routines, but are placed under a different category, I assume for organization’s sake. These can be used to trigger a scene or to turn the lights off at any specified time of any day or days the users desires, such as an evening “lights out” or automatically changing the lights’ color when it’s time to leave in the morning.

It’s worth noting that timers are no longer present in the updated app, as their functionality is likely assumed to be covered by the alarm-style routines that are available in the app. Still, some users who found themselves setting timers often may be frustrated by this change, as it was more convenient to set the lights to turn off after 30 minutes than to calculate the time 30 minutes from when you’re setting the alarm. I personally never used timers, but this change could be an inconvenience for some.

Siri Commands

Because lights can now be divided into rooms, Siri can control the lights on a per-room basis when given commands such as “Turn off the lights in the bedroom” or “Set the Concentrate scene in my study”. Pair this with untethered Hey Siri on newer iPhones and your house is practically a sci-fi movie set.

User Interface

Along with feature upgrades, the app has experienced a complete overhaul in terms of design language and general aesthetics. Gone is the Home screen-like grid of scenes, which is replaced by a more aesthetically pleasing solution. Throughout the app, everything from details such as the on/off switches and icons to the general layout of the app have been completely redone, and this new design language is a wonderful improvement.

Having Philips Hue in the house can be quite an incredible experience, particularly with the second generation bridge. Now when heading out of the house, instead of going throughout the house and flipping off all the light switches, I can just raise my wrist and say “Hey Siri, turn off the lights” and my Apple Watch will proceed to shut off all the lights in the house.

The level of convenience and luxury provided to iOS users through the HomeKit-enabled Hue bridge is unparalleled, and Philips has done an excellent job integrating this technology into the home. This new app is just the icing on the cake, with its ability to assign lights to rooms so Siri can turn off only the lights in a specific room or so the scenes displayed in the Notification Center widget will only change the lights in a certain part of the house.

The second generation Philips Hue app is available as a free download on the App Store and will work with both first and second generation Hue bridges. If you don’t yet have any Philips Hue hardware, you can begin your collection with the Philips Hue Starter Pack for $199.99, which comes with the Hue bridge and three white and color ambiance bulbs capable of producing over 16 million colors and every shade of white, from an energizing blue tint to a relaxing yellow glow.

Update: The current version of Philips Hue gen 2 does not package an Apple Watch app, but support is said to come in the future, although the timeline for this update is unclear.

Benzos And Opiates: A Risky Mix

Opioids and Benzos: A Risky Mix Study: 40 percent of people seeking opioid treatment also using benzodiazepines

Two in five people seeking detoxification for heroin or other opioid addictions reported taking benzodiazepines (BZDs), usually obtained illegally. This finding suggests a need for better education about the risks of the potentially dangerous drug combination, according to a new study led by a Boston University School of Public Health (SPH) researcher.

The study, based at a Massachusetts drug-treatment program, found that just 23 percent of dual users obtained the BZDs (sedatives such as Xanax) from a prescriber, while 48 percent reported getting them from “the street” and 28 percent from a friend or family member. And while those who got the drugs legally reported that “managing anxiety” was their primary reason for using them, those who bought them on the street were far more likely to report using the drugs to “get high or enhance a high.”

The study, published in September 2023 in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment and led by Michael Stein, chair of the SPH health law, policy, and management department, urges more education—for both clinicians and patients—on the risks and alternatives to BZDs.

“Prescribers continue to need education on the risks of combining opioids and benzodiazepines, but another important target audience is drug users themselves,” Stein says. Some opioid users “may never cross paths with a health care provider in their pursuit of opioids and benzodiazepines, and therefore may be missing out on the diagnosis of psychiatric symptoms and alternative treatments for anxiety or depression,” he says.

Forty percent of the study group—176 out of 438 people seeking opioid detoxification—reported taking Xanax or other benzodiazepines, or had them in their systems during toxicological testing within the month prior to admission; 25 percent met the criteria for BZD dependence. The vast majority (70 percent) of those who obtained the benzodiazepines through a prescription reported anxiety as their primary reason. In contrast, only 3 percent of those who used the drugs to “get high” obtained them legally.

Interestingly, the study group of BZD users had much higher rates of anxiety than other reported samples of opioid-addicted people receiving treatment. The authors recommend that clinicians should educate patients that “although in the short term they may experience subjective relief of anxiety with BZDs, long-term use is likely to have limited effectiveness.”

Research has shown that concurrent use of opioids and benzodiazepines can slow the heart rate and breathing and increase the risk of accidental overdose.

Stein says there is debate about whether the benefits of even short-term BZD prescriptions—for reasons such as help with sleep, withdrawal, and depression—outweigh the risks for opioid users.

“Either way, there is likely to be a fine line between therapeutic use and misuse, and the risk of developing a BZD-use disorder may be high,” he says. In addition, many long-term opioid-treatment programs insist on participants halting all benzodiazepine use.

“Having non-prescribed benzos identified may lead to program discharge and, in many cases, even preclude treatment receipt of methadone or suboxone,” Stein says.

Nationally, the number of patients admitted to addiction-treatment programs who reported combined use of opioids and BZDs increased five-fold between 2000 and 2010, the authors note. Opioid overdose deaths nearly quadrupled from 1999 to 2011, with an estimated 31 percent of opioid-related deaths associated with concurrent BZD use.

Co-authors on the study were from Butler Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School, Stanford University School of Medicine, and Stanley Street Treatment and Resources, Inc., in Fall River, Massachusetts.

Xiaomi Mi Soundbar Review: Cinematic Sound At A Bargain

Xiaomi’s onslaught on the Indian smart TV industry, which kicked off earlier last year, has proved to be a runaway success. The Mi TV lineup has only grown over the course of 2023 to help Xiaomi build a strong foothold over the home entertainment market. Well, the Chinese giant is now looking to enhance your TV viewing experience with the launch of their Mi Soundbar (Rs 4,999) in India and that too at a pretty tantalizing price tag.

Xiaomi sent over the huge Mi Soundbar to us for a review, and I have been using it over the past week. So, here’s how my experience with Xiaomi’s Mi Soundbar has been so far:

Mi Soundbar: Specifications

Calling the Mi Soundbar huge isn’t an understatement, it is 33 inches in length and holds eight speakers, but it’s still quite lightweight and weighs just under 2 kilograms. If you want to delve into the specifics of the speaker setup, well, Xiaomi has packed two 0.75-inch dome tweeters and two 2.5-inch woofers to bring the crisp audio experience to the table. This is coupled with four passive radiators that help boost the bass – which is a prime selling point for the Mi Soundbar. You can check some key specifications listed below:

Dimensions83 x 7.2 x 8.7 cm

Weight1.9 kgs

Speakerstwo 65mm woofer units + two 20mm dome tweeters + four passive radiators

Connectivity Options3.5 mm stereo AUX, fiber optic, coaxial S/PDIF, red and white line-in, and Bluetooth 4.2

Mi Soundbar: What’s in the Box

Mi Soundbar (you cannot miss this one)

Power adapter

User manuals

S/PDIF cable

Wall mounting accessories

The Mi Soundbar has a number of connectivity options and I would have much preferred if Xiaomi provided a 3.5mm AUX or optical cable in the box over the S/PDIF one.

Mi Soundbar: Design and Build

The Mi Soundbar is no different from several other Xiaomi products we have seen in the recent past. The classy design and minimal aesthetic of the Mi Soundbar, should make it attractive to the masses.

The Mi Soundbar is a massive cuboid, and comes only in white (for the plastic body with a matte finish) with a grey fabric mesh on the front to cover the speaker unit. There’s a subtle “Mi” branding on the top right of the soundbar and I like that.

This color combo makes it look sophisticated, and I kind of like it, but it also makes me wary of handling the Mi Soundbar. It catches dust and grease pretty easily and that could ruin its look, which is why I’d have loved it if Xiaomi had a black variant of the soundbar as well.

If not a display, Xiaomi could have at least provided a remote with the soundbar to allow users to adjust the volume from the comfort of their sofa set or bed. It’s one of the key ingredients missing from the recipe here and many of its competitors do have an edge here.


The Mi Soundbar can be installed in 2 different forms under your television set. You can either choose to just connect the power and input cables and then place the soundbar below your TV on a table,  or mount it on the wall – great if your TV is also mounted. Xiaomi even provides the accessories — screws and screw mounts — required to mount the Mi Soundbar within the box but you’d have to do the heavy lifting yourself.

If you decide to place the Mi Soundbar on a table top, the body will rest on three sturdy rubber feet which can be found at the bottom – two near the ends, and one sitting in the middle. They will not only keep your Mi Soundbar from directly touching the table but also makes it skid-proof and absorb the vibration from the speakers.

Mi Soundbar: Connectivity

Xiaomi offers you a number of different options to connect the Mi Soundbar to your TVs, laptop or smartphone. Firstly, you can obviously turn to Bluetooth to connect any of the devices to the soundbar but the audio output won’t really be the best, well, because wireless audio streaming is still not there yet. It supports A2DP music playback, which is sweet, however, still not as good as its wired alternatives.

Wired Connection Ports

The wired options include the familiar 3.5mm AUX port, the red and white Line-in ports, a black S/PDIF (co-ax) port, followed by the optical port. It means you’re not going to face any issues when connecting to your Mi TV as it has all of these ports. However, I was using the Mi Soundbar with one of the smart TVs at the Beebom office and it worked perfectly fine in my case.

The ports are arranged neatly on the rear, with buttons to switch between them laid out on top. These connectivity options can be switched between pretty quickly and easily, with just the press of a button. An LED indicator above the button tells you which source is playing. It requires you to have the necessary cable attached to the soundbar (which you might need to buy yourself) to get the output. You’ll have to flip the rocker switch to turn on the soundbar once you’ve connected it to the power source.

No HDMI or USB Ports

However, I won’t be too harsh on Xiaomi for the lack of these connectivity options because the company is giving users access a great audio experience at a pretty reasonable price.

Mi Soundbar: Audio Quality

We already know what’s packed inside the Mi Soundbar, so let’s get down straight to the meat and gravy of this product – the audio quality. Xiaomi promises that the soundbar is designed to deliver a “thrilling cinematic” experience and well, I was astounded to see it make good on this promise the moment I plugged it into my MacBook Air. Yeah, it was my first taste of using a soundbar and I kicked off the testing with my daily drivers before moving to a smart TV.

Listening to Songs

Well, let me preface my experience by saying that you’re not going to be impressed with the Mi Soundbar in this scenario. While the soundbar gets loud and has a ton of treble and bass that a lot of people may approve of and like, but I have to warn you that the soundstage isn’t well-balanced in this case.

While the music listening experience isn’t particularly great here, you can’t overlook the movie and TV season-viewing aspect of the Mi Soundbar.

Watching Movies

Over the past weekend, I spent all my time in bed binge-watching a new sci-fi mystery show called Travelers on Netflix. I realized that the true purpose of Mi Soundbar is to make it possible for you to appreciate your favorite movies and TV shows with a fuller and cinematic audio experience. The soundstage is pretty well-balanced here and one can not just distinctly hear the dialogues clearly, but also the sound effects with heavy bass, as well as higher frequencies. Movies sound fantastic on the soundbar. .

Also, I have a medium-sized room at home and the Mi Soundbar was loud enough to give me an improved viewing experience as compared to just using the TV’s speakers. Placing the soundbar on a table under the TV was satisfactory in my case and also, I did notice that the rubber feet here are strong enough to hold the soundbar in place.

Xiaomi has certainly put in much effort to tune the sound of the Mi Soundbar for a better home entertainment experience and while it seems to work for binge-watching movies, it all boils down to preference when listening to music.

Mi Soundbar: Should You Buy One?

Finally, let us answer the one question that you’re here for, and it’s whether you should get Mi Soundbar for your home or not. Well, Xiaomi has designed a soundbar that extends a well-balanced and full output for binge-watching movies on Netflix or listening to music when you come home after yet another tough day at work. And if you’re a bass lover, well, your day will be made. So, Xiaomi has probably added another feather to its overflowing hat with the launch of Mi Soundbar in India and I think it justifies the Rs 4,999 price tag pretty well.

There may be a few chinks in its armor such as the lack of a remote or a few I/O ports, however, the sound quality makes up for these imperfections.

Mi Soundbar is perhaps one of the better options available on the market in its price range and there’s no denying it. But, there’s a possibility that you want to use a remote. Well, in that case, you can get the F&D T180X 2.0 TV Soundbar (Rs 5,490) which should offer you a similar soundstage due to its 3-inch drivers and 1-inch tweeters. You can also pick the Philips DSP-475 U Soundbar and subwoofer combo (Rs 4,500) if you want to add that extra thump to your experience.

Elegant aesthetics

Lightweight body

Powerful bass and treble

Amazing sound for movies and TV


No Remote Control

Lacks few I/O ports

Not great for just music

It’s sleek, light and more importantly, affordable, to make you want to pull out your wallet and buy one almost immediately.

You may have recently encountered the We’ve got an update for you message. This prompt, unique to Windows 10, is a grain of sand in the desert of recent changes that Microsoft is trying on the Windows platform.

This, in no subtle way, tells you there is a significant update for Windows, and you should install it as soon as possible.

In recent years, Microsoft has been trying to change its release strategy for its flagship product — the Windows Operating System.

They are moving further away from the traditional model of big numbered releases every few years to smaller updates less than a year apart (there are 2 updates planned for 2023).

In other words, Microsoft is trying to make Windows a service instead of a traditional software. The company’s tagline for Windows 10 was Windows as a Service.

This is where this prompt comes in. It is Microsoft’s way of grabbing your attention and telling you that you should update your Windows.

It is a small part of their overall strategy of keeping all Windows users up-to-date. Another, perhaps more obvious, change was making it much harder for users to disable Windows updates.

Disabling Window Update was a few simple steps in Windows 8. In Windows 10 it turned into a complex and near-impossible task that you can’t do without a tutorial.
