Remains of the Day: Leaked Screenshots Reveal New Windows 10 Designs

Andy Orin, Gawker Media

Microsoft has plans to refresh the Windows 10 interface later this year with a few little tweaks and upgrades for the operating system. They're not huge changes, but should make using the operating system a more pleasant experience. That and more in today's news.

  • MSPoweruser got ahold of some screenshots of "Project NEON," an upcoming UI refresh of Windows 10. The changes are fairly subtle and include new animations and design elements similar to Windows 7's Aero scheme, which make some windows appear transparent like frosted glass. It's a little less flat and blocky compared to the current Windows 10 look. The new look is expected to arrive later this year. [MSPoweruser]
  • Cherry has a new silent mechanical keyboard. The MX Board Silent is based on the G80-3000 combined with the latest version of their silent switches, delivering all the clickiness of a mechanical keyboard with none of the clatter. But be honest, isn't the clatter part of the appeal? Currently only available in international EU layout though. [Cherry]
  • The recalled GoPro drones can be fixed with a piece of tape. Sounds like a lifehack. According to CEO Nick Woodman, the malfunction that caused drones to fall from the sky was simply their batteries shifting out of place. Which wouldn't be too hard to improvise a fix for, but they're still recalled so you should just send it back. [TechCrunch]
  • Speaking of drones with cameras, drone purveyor DJI is rumored to be purchasing a majority stake in famed camera company Hasselblad.  Ownership of the company has changed hands before, though it's up in the air (wink) as to whether DJI wants to make use of their camera technology or if Hasselblad will operate as an independent subsidiary.

  • Did you know Mac hardware is filled with coins? Jackpot! Numerous people have found pennies in the Apple SuperDrive, and one user even found a quarter in a Macbook Pro back in 2010. (Seems like an improvised solution during product assembly if I had to guess-stop vibration by adding a spacer to make things tight. Or maybe it's just kids shoving stuff in the computer.) [Gizmodo]
