No other provider can offer such a wide range of games that can be streamed from the cloud via Xbox Game Pass. So far, however, only on Android smartphones and tablets. An expansion is planned, soon they want to make the jump to iOS via the browser and thus bypass Apple's blockade, an app for Windows 10 is also in preparation.

The Windows SDK provides tools, compilers, headers, libraries, code samples, and a new help system that developers can use to create applications that run on Microsoft Windows . Selecting a language below will dynamically change the complete page content to that language .

Even if Microsoft tried with ambition a few years ago to convince users and developers of the new and more modern Universal Windows Platform, it is now clear that the significantly more powerful Win32 applications continue to set the tone specify. Ultimately, this also created awareness in Redmond and with Project Reunion they are now actively working to bring the two platforms together again.

However, the aging Win32 platform is a major challenge for many programming languages. While older programming languages ​​such as C and C ++ can use the existing possibilities of the APIs very well, more modern representatives such as Rust or even the in-house C # are often dependent on wrappers or corresponding bindings. In order to significantly improve the accessibility here, Microsoft is starting a new project with win32metadata, which is intended to remedy this situation and is available on GitHub under the MIT license that is customary at Microsoft. The main goal of

is to enrich the existing Win32 APIs with the corresponding metadata, which are then open to as many languages ​​and frameworks as possible and which should enable easier access. In addition to C # and Rust, modern C ++ is also to be converted to the new concept. We can expect the first results at BUILD 2021, as Microsoft lists

in a short Roadmap. A small FAQ is also available.

Are vaccine providers selling your health data? There’s not much stopping them. .
How a vaccine clinic scandal in Philadelphia shows the need for better health privacy laws.It’s not looking so good now. Philadelphia ended the partnership after it was reported that the company changed its nonprofit status to for profit, and its privacy policy to say that it could sell the pre-registration data its site collected (Philly Fighting COVID maintains that it had no intentions to sell data and didn’t even realize that language was in its privacy policy). Now, the city is scrambling to reassure residents that their data won’t be sold and to reschedule their vaccine appointments with other providers.
