Microsoft gets (even) more transparent on Windows 10 privacy. Creators Update arrives April 11 -- but those who really want it can grab it starting today (for PCs and tablets). We found another ad in Windows 10. Microsoft to reveal Project Scorpio specs via Eurogamer on 4/6 (rumor is so that they can focus on games at E3). Android is number one. So what? Apple this week … apologized! Is this a victory for Surface? Or just that Apple really doesn't care about the Mac?
