Nothing is more infuriating that going to a website with a video playing on the background. That is what Facebook is exactly doing. They are now playing videos on pages that you open. Sounds like they are more concerned more about counting their video views than the actual user experience. At least they’re trying to be nice by muting the audio if you scroll down past the video. Facebook is giving you the option to have the volume ON automatically, but why would you do that? If you don’t want videos playing in the background at all, you can turn it OFF by going to the Settings and setting Auto-Play Videos to Off. That’s what I would do.
ZDNet just published an article about the rumored Windows 10 Cloud platform. It’s interesting take and departure from Microsoft. The Windows 10 Cloud platform is supposed to be competing with the Google Chrome OS. This version of Windows 10 is rumored to be locked down. That means you can’t install any app that you want. To install apps, you have to go through through the Windows Store app setup. It’s probably best that they’ve decided this for security reasons. Some sources are also saying that the Windows 10 Cloud platform can also run Universal Windows Platform apps. Universal Windows Platform apps and Windows Store apps are not the same. We don’t really know if both app platforms are going to be supported until Microsoft reveals it. Is Windows 10 Cloud free? Will it run on all devices? We will soon find out.
