Register.UK: Stop! Before you accept that Windows 10 Mobile upgrade, read this.

The upgrade will mean a loss of functionality for some businesses and consumers; it pays to know what you’re losing. For businesses, the losses fall into two categories. Enterprise features, including Data Protection Under Lock, are missing. And it breaks conditional access to file functions managed by MDM servers.” FYI.

Rhythmus.be: Markdown to InDesign.

Mashable: Microsoft builds Surface cover prototype with bonus E Ink screen.
