Earlier this year, Microsoft acquired a company called 6Wunderkinder, for a reported sum ranging somewhere between $100 to $200 million.
The reason behind the acquisition, was that the German company offered a productivity app/service called Wunderlist, and that the service boasted a whopping 13 million users, when Microsoft acquired it.
Wunderlist is a cross platform app, available for Windows, Android, Mac and iOS devices, and lets users to add tasks in to-do lists, which they can use as a reminder in their daily life.
Wunderlist for Windows 10 now boasts a new design ( which is reminiscent of the mobile app’s UI), support for Live Tiles and even [...]

Personally I have disabled Windows Store auto updates, for scenarios just like this, I do use the Calculator, Twitter for [...]
Microsoft has had a change of heart, as Windows 10 Home Users are now allowed to disable automatic updates for Windows Store Apps.
Windows Updates (not to be confused with App updates) have been quite a headache, especially since Home Edition users cannot disable the updates at all.
Pro edition users have a minor consolation as they can defer updates, but only temporarily, and need to install all prior updates before getting the latest one.
I’ll be honest here, I do not have a Windows 10 Home Edition PC, all three of my computers run on Windows 10 Pro, two of them were upgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro, while the other one was from Windows 7 Pro. The [...]
