Experts from Microsoft unveiled many of the things that I was saying they should bring up at their Windows press conference in San Francisco. One of the biggest surprises Microsoft made was to name their new operating system Windows 10. That being said many of the other aspects of the reveal were quite basic. They didn't throw many other curve balls that would suggest they're fundamentally changing their business model.
It looks like the Windows Start Menu should be returning in a big way, which might please users who were upset with the live tile interface brought ushered in by Windows 8. The new menu provides options for both the traditional program list as well as a customizable set of live tiles. These can just as easily work with touch screen devices for those who need it. Those who have convertible 2-in-1 devices should be able to have the operating system reconfigure itself automatically based on what mode is chosen.

Recently, GoDaddy and Microsoft announced their intentions to work together on various projects. Now they've revealed their latest collaboration. It's called Get Online Today. From this package, users receive Web hosting, site building services, and e-mail through Office 365 for $1.00 per month through Year One. Subscribers receive a free $50 credit toward Bing Ads, too.
Of course, GoDaddy offers tons of Web hosting and related products. Each product is priced individually, and creating a custom package isn't always easy. Get Online Today offers users an all-in-one package, though. Without a doubt, both companies are trying to compete with sites like Squarespace and WordPress. More so than that, though, both companies are targeting inexperienced website owners.

Fewer people have purchased electronics, and many now buy online, meaning that shares of Best Buy (BBY) fell by 6.7 percent in early trading, and fell for a third consecutive quarter. The chain, the largest specialty electronics retailer in the US, predicted that this trend would continue throughout the year.
US same store sales declined by 2.7 percent and the company predicted margins would remain at risk because of discounting in some countries, an overall soft industry and increased sales of lower margin items. Christopher Horvers, an analyst with JP Morgan pointed out that a new IPhone launch and sales of 4K high definition TVs could benefit Best Buy. The company predicted soft sales right up until the release of new model mobile phones. The impact of increased sales of 4K televisions would be slight, according to best Buy CEO Hubert Joly.

3 Reasons Why Tesla Motor's Model 3 is a Game-Changer:
Tesla announced earlier this week, the official name of its newly planned affordable vehicle - the Model 3. When Steve Fowler (Auto Express Writer) detailed his recent interview with Elon Musk (Tesla CEO), he called this next generation small car a rival to the BMW 3 series.

It seems there is a solid case for the Tesla affordable care. The market overall agrees that they have a good chance to build a car that is every bit as marketable as the BMW 3 series. Tesla intends to sell 500,000 of these electric cars annually by the year 2020. That would put them on par with the entire BMW 3 lineup.
