- Did Windows 10 1809 just cross the finish line? Two builds in a row with no new features. Hm. Is 1809/Redstone 5 feature complete? A look at the previous 10 builds confirms that this release is nonsense-free.
- Another Win Server 2019/1809 build with no new features (yes we are closing in on RTM).
- Lots of Patch Tuesday cumulative updates for almost every Win 10 build (except 1511).
- Windows Store and Xbox Store get a shopping cart. How 1990's.
- Your Phone (for Android) now works with Windows 10 1803 – not just Insider builds.
- Cortana-Alexa integration finally hits public preview. But who is going to use this in real life? Preview is U.S. only and fairly limited; no streaming music or audiobook support yet.
- Google may be adding Windows 10 dual boot support to Chromebooks.
- Snapdragon 850 gets benchmarked. And it's not great.
- One year late, Microsoft fixes Surface Pro/Pen issue
