There's still time to delay :p

 

I'm like you, I'm not sure if my expectations are higher or video games just don't excite me the way that they used too, but I'm not being blown away by anything. 

Still no word on price

I'll eat my hat then. I was absolutely certain it'd be a premium price way over and above $499. Day one buy along with a new TV.

Storage goes up to a 1TB SSD and battery life is up to 13.8 hours.The 14-inch display is only available in Full HD and it's an IPS panel, instead of the Sharp IGZO displays Dynabook has typically used.

      Microsoft develops new machine learning model to detect password spray attacks
      by Usama Jawad

      Over the past few weeks, Microsoft has been promoting digital security efforts as a part of its observance of the National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) in October. It has announced new initiatives to promote cybersecurity awareness, unveiled Zero Trust Deployment Center, released an Adversarial ML Threat Matrix, and launched a fairly successful offensive against the malicious Trickbot botnet.

      Now the company has stated that it has developed a new machine learning-based algorithm that detects password spray attacks with considerably improved performance than its previous mechanism.

      Image via Abine For those unaware, a password spray is a relatively crude and common form of cyberattack in which a malicious actor attacks tenants via thousands of IPs - using botnets in most cases - with a few commonly used passwords rather than trying numerous passwords against a single user. While this indicates that the success rate per account is quite nominal, it also means that the attack is very difficult to detect since it is spread out with such uneven consistency that a tenant may dismiss a couple of unsuccessful login attempts per account as part of the regular login pattern. So, this attack can only be detected across multiple tenants if you notice a single hash failing across numerous accounts.

      To counter password spray attacks, Microsoft previously built a heuristic mechanism in which the company observed "the core failure in the system in... worldwide traffic" and notified organizations at risk. Now, the company has improved this mechanism by training a new supervised machine learning algorithm that uses features such as IP reputation, unfamiliar login properties, and other account deviations to detect when a tenant is under attack from password spray.

      Microsoft claims that its new model has a 100% increase in recall compared to the heuristic algorithm. This means that it detects twice the number of compromised accounts. Furthermore, it also has a 98% precision, which means that if the model claims that an account has fallen victim to password spray, then this is almost certainly true across all such cases.

      The new model will be available soon to Azure AD Identity Protection customers, who will be able to utilize it in the portal and APIs for Identity Protection.

      Microsoft starts rolling out trackpad support to Office apps for iPadOS
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Microsoft today announced fresh updates for its Office apps on iPadOS that introduce full support for trackpad capabilities, among others. The latest changes are live for those using Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the iPad.

      The software giant says the new updates should come in handy if you're using a mouse or Apple’s Magic Keyboard to move around texts in Word, resize content in PowerPoint, or select cells in Excel, for example. The cursor also automatically adjusts its function according to the content you're working on.



      If you have been using these Office apps on Windows or macOS, the new iPad experience will look familiar to you. That said, today's announcement is not entirely surprising since a report earlier this year suggested that Microsoft would add trackpad support for its Office suite apps on iPadOS.

      In addition, the Redmond-based company has introduced new start screens and a fresh ribbon of feature menus to the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint experiences. It says these enhancements provide a "cleaner and more modern" look in line with its Fluent UI design.

      These updates are rolling out in phases and should be available to everyone in the next few weeks. In the future, Microsoft has promised to bring multiple document support in Excel, contextual menus, and offline file support for cloud files.

      Microsoft announces new improvements for PowerPoint for Mac
      by João Carrasqueira



      Microsoft has announced some improvements that are making their way to PowerPoint for Mac today, along with some other forthcoming improvements. One of the most notable additions that's coming soon is the ability to record video of the presenter during a slideshow.

      With remote learning being fairly common these days, the ability to record videos presentations along with presenter video should help educators make more engaging content. Additionally, Microsoft is adding the ability to record inking as well as laser pointer movements during a slideshow. Office Insiders can try these features early, but they should come to general users soon.



      In the meantime, some features that were already being tested by Insiders are making the jump and becoming available for everyone. For one thing, it's now possible to record audio files and insert them into a presentation on the fly. You can also export PowerPoint presentations as animated GIFs, complete with the ability to set the image quality and how many seconds should be given to each frame.

      Finally, PowerPoint for Mac is getting the ability to generate links to a specific slide in a presentation. All of these features should be available today.
