Windows 8: Explorer starts the tape and mount the ISO and VHD

Microsoft Unveils some new features Windows 8 and, in particular, improvements in file Explorer.

Microsoft continues to show a little more Windows 8, and have largely insisted on the new interface Windows Phone 7-inspired for the touch, this is the most traditional part of the new OS is revealed. Was there a few days of file manager, and Microsoft yesterday presented the new Explorer of files, which has the particularity of integrating well known users of the latest drafts of Office Ribbon interface. The idea admitted Microsoft is to respect the Explorer integrated since the beginning of Windows, while the dust suppressant to adapt it to new monitor resolutions and by improving the ergonomics.

It is the role of the four tabs in the Ribbon, with the most used actions in the handling of files... Classics copy - paste to the more advanced functions as backup documents or share them. The observers notice also in these pictures that the button to go back one level in the tree of files made comeback. Just as interesting, Microsoft shows that even if the tape is an important top window, this new presentation of the Explorer to view more items to equal window from Windows 7 size.

Other information gleaned on the developers blog from Microsoft about Windows 8, we learn that the latter will be natively able to mount and read the ISO and VHD images. It will therefore need to install a third-party software to perform these tasks, which should not delight Daemon Tools publishers, among others. Via functions advances proposed by the Ribbon of the new Explorer of files, it will be proposed to mount and read or burn the image when the system will retrieve ISO and VHD files.

Once mounted, the image appears in the Explorer as a removable storage medium. However, it is unclear if it will be possible to create an ISO directly from File Explorer image. As to the support of the VHD (Virtual Hard Drive), it is interesting to the extent where once mounted and open, these images will appear in the system as conventional hard drives. While waiting to see what this compatibility cache as new upcoming features on virtualization.

Very good results for Free which prepares the arrival of Free Mobile and attack Numericable

Small point encrypted on the progress made by Free on the past semester. If the ISP who recruits the most, Free account not stop in so good way...

Freebox Revolution V6

After bad LICO figures yesterday, it is the turn for Free to the point on his first six months of activity. And in the troublemaker of the Internet, all is well. Indeed, the ISP displays a record recruitment rate, far exceeding that of its competitors. If SFR attirué 96 000 new clients for its offers Web, that Orange has drawn 164 000 and Bouygues Telecom has 215,000 new entrants, Free parade with 231 000 new subscribers on the first six months of the year. Which still represents 36% of its sales. For sure, its Revolution offer attracts surfers, allowing Free to count a total of 4,245 million customers (and 4.7 million with Alice subscribers), 4.9 million SFR. The gap is reduced more and more. What "credible" the ambition of Free of "double in size by 2015", explains Thomas Raynaud, Chief Financial Officer, to the Reuters news agency. Of course, in the meantime, Free Mobile will was launched.

Free Mobile that the Iliad group obviously has the means to finance, despite its reluctance to pay with a 4 G licence. Indeed, semi-annual turnover was 2.6% at 1.04 billion, when the benefit net is of EUR 145 million, up 8% on a year. In addition, Free took advantage of the presentation of its results to let know that 3.6 million taken very high speed (understanding optical fiber, FTTH) are deployed or being deployed. About Free Mobile, the project today is 3 500 people mobilized, Free as in more than 100 corporate partners, including suppliers and subcontractors. And to those who think that Free Mobile will not be able to decide prices also strongly than expected, since competitors took the measure of his arrival by lowering overall tariffs, the Financial Director responded that according to Free, the France mobile market is always the same, "prices are still high".

Finally, let's finish by sliding a little word on the dispute between Free and Numericable around the term "Revolution". Remember no doubt that a few months ago, a mysterious operator promised "The Mobile revolution" and that it is ultimately of Numericable who had launched an "unlimited" offer. And although Free believes to be owner of the term "Revolution" he largely tied to its brand, as well to the public for the press. Thus, PCInpact says that the Iliad group was assigned to justice Numericable and claimed 10 million euros in damages and compensation for damage to its image and reputation. And for the relief of harm "constituted by the diversion of its image and the weakening of his own advertising and commercial efforts". Confusion with Numericable voluntarily played as Free, which probably exaggerates a little by explaining that "38 million of advertising investments were thrown at the window".

First half worrying for SFR

The quarterly results of SFR are not very good and, especially, the recruitment of new subscribers are in free fall.

Espace SFR

If Vivendi, parent company of SFR, is doing very well with a result an increase of 20.2% over the first half of the year, the accounts of the operator are for their part not to the beautiful fixed with net sales decreased by 2% and disturbing recruitment rates, both on the fixed than the mobile. Thus, on the six first months of the current year, the SFR CA levelled off at 6.12 billion euros. For SFR, the scapegoat is all found, it is the increase of VAT which has not been passed on the price of its subscriptions (a gift that was to prevent leakage of subscribers by possible terminations without charge). SFR explains such that the VAT increase set apart, its CA would have increased by 2.7%.

Is that in the results, the turnover of mobile activity is down 3.9% (to 4,257 billion euros) in the first half. Losses not fills the CA on the high speed Internet rose by 1.3% to almost EUR 2 billion. Numbers that could go if the rate of recruitment had not sunk. SFR has recruited only 220,000 new mobile clients for the first half, against 540 000 new clients recruited last year. For a total of 21,059 million customers arrested late June 2011. As the fixed Internet, it is even more alarming, with only 96 000 new subscribers recruited against 238 000 a year earlier. For a total of 4,983 million customers.

However, SFR has multiplied the new, between its new access Evolution adopted by 415 000 customers and a decrease in average 25% of its rates on the mobile, not to mention the launch of the "Square" specially offers thoughts to avoid the leak subscribers. SFR will have to redouble their efforts to reverse the trend.
