      Razer's modular Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is now available
      by Rich Woods

      Today, Razer announced that its new, modular Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is available for purchase. It was first announced at CES this year, and it comes with a tool-less sled to gain access to the internals.

      It's a 10L chassis (210x150x365mm), so it's a small PC, and it comes with the signature Razer design language that fans are going to appreciate. That means that it's made out of CNC-milled aluminum with a matte black finish. It's also got Chroma lighting along the base.

      It's actually designed around an Intel NUC, so it comes with ninth-generation Intel H-series CPUs, specifically, the overclockable Core i9-9980HK. It does have room for a full-size GPU though, up to 320x140mm. You can actually have it configured with up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080.

      Image from CES earlier this year Packed with a 750W PSU, 16GB DDR4 memory, a 512GB SSD, and a 2TB HDD, it has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, two gigabit Ethernet ports, and 3.5mm audio ports.

      The Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is available today, starting at $2,399.99. That base model comes with an unpopulated PCIe slot where you can use any GPU you want. For $3,199.99, you can get the model with the RTX 3080. If you want to check it out, you can find it here.

      Microsoft unveils Azure Purview, a new data governance platform
      by Hamza Jawad

      In recent Azure news, Microsoft launched the Az Predictor to improve the usability of Azure PowerShell last month, while the renowned Battle Royale title PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was also announced to be getting hosted using the Redmond firm's cloud platform soon. Earlier this year, meanwhile, Microsoft announced deeper integration between Azure Synapse Analytics and Power BI.

      Synapse Analytics, the data unifying service which combines data engineering, machine learning, and business intelligence capabilities to eliminate silos has now reached general availability. Alongside this announcement, Microsoft also unveiled Azure Purview, a unified data governance platform to automate the discovery of data and cataloging.

      The purpose of Purview is to allow the mapping of all data present within an organization, ensuring that companies can keep track of their data regardless of where it is stored. Data that is on-premises, across clouds, in Power BI, or in SaaS applications, can be protected using mechanisms built upon Microsoft's Information Protection solution. Over 100 AI classifiers that look for sensitive data, out-of-compliance data, and personally identifiable information (PII) have been utilized to help comprehend data exposures.

      The key components of Azure Purview have been noted as follows:

      To get started with Azure Purview, interested parties can check out its preview here.

      Microsoft adds new File skill to Cortana
      by João Carrasqueira



      Microsoft released a new build of Windows 10 to Insiders in the Dev channel today, and as we've seen in recent weeks, it was a pretty uneventful release. However, the company did announce a new feature for Cortana alongside the new build, but you can use it even if you're not in the Insider program.

      The feature is a new File skill for the digital assistant, which means it can now help users find and open documents without navigating their files manually. Users can ask Cortana to open a specific file using parts of its name, using the author's name, file type, or simply files that were accessed recently.

      For users signed in with a personal Microsoft account, the feature can only search for files saved locally on the PC. Business users, on the other hand, can use it to open files from SharePoint and OneDrive for Business, in addition to locally-stored files.

      Based on our testing, the feature is working at least on Windows 10 version 20H2, so you don't need to be an Insider at all. However, you do need to have the Cortana language set to English and the region set to the United States.

      Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 20270 to the Dev channel with fixes
      by Rich Woods



      Microsoft is releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview build 20270 to the Dev channel today. Just like we've seen for over a month now, it's from the fe_release branch, a meaningless branch that used to exist when the company was prepping a feature update for release. These days, it's just going through the motions.

      Windows 10 21H1, if it ships at all, is not going to be a major update, which is what's in the fe_release branch. The spring update is focused on the Windows 10X RTM, so if we do end up getting a Windows 10 feature update, it will be an enablement package like we saw with versions 20H2 and 1909.

      As for when we should return to rs_prerelease and start getting new features, I'm hearing next week. Next year's fall update is actually looking to be a pretty big one. Windows on ARM PCs are getting x64 emulation, and there's a UI refresh on the way. The latest report is that Microsoft is adding support for Android apps. Combine that with Windows 10X, and that makes 2021 a pretty exciting year for Windows.

      As for this build, there are no new features, but there are some changes, fixes and known issues. Here's what's listed under changes and improvements:

      Here's what got fixed:

      Here's what's still broken:

      As always, you can grab today's build through Windows Update. If you're not on the Dev channel, you can enroll through the Windows Insider Program tab in Settings.

      Excel now lets users create custom functions with LAMBDA
      by João Carrasqueira



      Microsoft has been releasing some major updates for Excel recently, such as support for custom data types. Today, another one is making its way to Office Insiders in the Beta channel. Microsoft has announced LAMBDA, a new feature in Excel that allows users to create custom functions based on Excel formulas.

      Until now, it was possible to create custom functions in Excel, but only by using other languages such as JavaScript. LAMBDA allows functions to be created using the Excel formula language, and they can then be saved under custom names, making them reusable. On top of that, the functions support recursion, meaning that a function can call itself in its definition. This was only possible in Excel by using scripts, such as VBA or JavaScript.

      There are a few benefits to this approach, according to Microsoft. For one thing, using a saved custom function means that, should you find an error in the formula, you can fix the function, and that will fix the result for every cell where the function is used. It can also be easier to read for those that didn't create the formulas, because functions can be identified by names, thus it's easier to understand their purpose.

      Recursion is also useful because it allows formulas to automatically update when necessary. A function can call itself if a change is detected in the data, updating the result of the function based on those changes. As an example, Microsoft uses the following GIF to demonstrate how recursion keeps the resulting cells updated to offer the desired result.



      Of course, these formulas support more than just text and numbers, and they can be used with data types like locations, and they also support dynamic arrays.

      This feature is only available in the Beta channel of the Office Insider program for now, and it's not clear when it will roll out to more users.
