Microsoft’s next-generation Windows 10X operating system , which was meant to take on Chrome OS, is seeing yet another delay. The company has reportedly put Windows 10X on the shelf for now, so it can refocus on the regular version of Windows 10, according to a report from Petri.com’s Brad Sams . Microsoft reports that there are a total of 1.3 billion active Windows 10 devices in the world, and now Windows could finally see some glory after having taken a back seat in more recent years with smaller updates . Some elements and other technologies from Windows 10X, such as user interface updates and app containers, could still arrive in regular Windows 10, according to Sams. However, the lightweight Windows 10X “isn’t coming to market anytime soon” and “10X is on the back burner for now.” Microsoft watcher Zac Bowden also confirms the rumors , saying that he has been hearing the same plans for 10X over the past few weeks.

(Bloomberg) -- Copper soared to an all-time high as optimism about a global rebound from the pandemic boosts commodities markets. The metal -- an economic bellwether -- is front and center in a rally that’s driven raw materials from lumber to iron ore to multiyear highs or records. Stimulus measures and vaccine rollouts are fueling prospects for a resurgence in demand that’s set to strain supply, while copper’s crucial role in the green-energy transition is set to underpin longer-term gains. Big banks and others including trader Trafigura Group have rolled out a list of lofty price targets, with the latter predicting copper will hit US$15,000 a ton in the coming decade as decarbonization drives more consumption.

NBC and dick clark productions may be on board with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association ’s latest attempts at reform and inclusion , but Time’s Up and Tinseltown’s top PR gurus are clearly not drinking the Kool-Aid. “The window-dressing platitudes adopted yesterday are neither the transformation that was promised nor what our creative community deserves,” Time’s Up president Tina Tchen said Friday after a meeting with Hollywood public relations firms and Color of Change. “Any organization or sponsors that set themselves up to pass judgment on our vibrant community of creators and talent must do better,” Tchen added (read the full Time’s Up statement below).

At CES 2014, it debuted a new technology called RealSense, which aims to make technologies like voice control, computer vision and 3D printing more commonplace.
