Bitglass Report: Microsoft Office 365 is disrupting the Google Apps disruptor. Less than a decade ago, Microsoft was seen very much as a company denying the validity of the cloud.

Bitglass Report: Microsoft Office 365 is disrupting the Google Apps disruptor

Its Office tools were a good example of this and steadfastly ignored industry trends in terms of rapid iteration, cloud delivery and subscription business models. Where Microsoft ignored realities, Google was quick to move, and Google Apps grew rapidly for very good reason — it was the only office productivity suite (ignoring, for a moment, outlier products like Zoho) that delivered cloud-ready solutions on a subscription pricing model. The world, or at least Microsoft's world, has, however, turned. Microsoft is now strongly embracing this new way of working. Office 365 is very much a cloud-first product. Microsoft rolls out first public preview of SharePoint Server 2016.

Microsoft rolls out first public preview of SharePoint Server 2016

SharePoint Server 2016 IT preview and the related new cloud hybrid search preview for SharePoint Server 2013 and 2016 are both available for testing as of August 24, Microsoft officials said today. As officials said previously, the new features in SharePoint Server 2016 -- which is due to be generally available in the second quarter of calendar 2016 -- largely overlap with those in SharePoint Online. There's a new App Launcher in SharePoint 2016 that will allow users to more quickly launch their apps, browse sites and access personal files. Microsoft also is working to make it easier for users to create, share and manage files in the new release. The coming release also provides support for uploading files up to 10 GB in size.

Report: 50 million devices now run Windows 10

Microsoft hasn’t said anything yet about how many people are running the new OS, but if figures reported by WinBeta are correct, it’s off to a strong start. According to WinBeta’s sources, Windows 10 is now running on at least 50 million devices (PCs and tablets). These numbers are very unofficial, but to put things into perspective, Microsoft announced that it sold 100 million Windows 8 licenses roughly six months after that OS’s introduction, though an analysis of Windows 8’s percentage of Web traffic put the actual installed base at around 59 million as of May 2013.

Some Xbox Ones sound like they're eating discs. Some new Xbox One owners unpacked their Day One Edition consoles today and were greeted by non-functioning disc drives, according to reports in Amazon reviews and YouTube videos.

Some Xbox Ones sound like they're eating discs

"Disc error, it sounds like a robot is vomiting when I try to put a [disc] in," wrote Amazon user JM, giving the console a one-star review. Another Amazon user said his Xbox One's disc drive "clicks and rejects discs. " A four-page thread on the Xbox forums begins with a user describing the noise as a "crunching sound," with numerous others saying they're having the same problem.

Several videos on YouTube show people sliding a disc into the console and hearing a loud rattling sound. One YouTube user compiled many of the clips into a single video that you can watch above. The percentage of affected consoles is unclear at the moment.

But progress could stall. For 15 years Google has wowed us, from its search engine to Android to Earth and Maps to a project to extend human life. A few keystrokes bring an explosion of information. For most people, it's empowering. For technologists, however, it's also humbling, because let's face it -- we never thought on such a grand scale. It's against that backdrop of expansive vision that most IT pros look at Gmail and Google Docs, not to mention Hangouts and Chrome, and think: "Meh. " We expected to be wowed. Why Microsoft's Office for iPad strategy still doesn't make sense. Ballmer has re-ignited anticipation for an iPad version of the Microsoft Office suite.

Why Microsoft's Office for iPad strategy still doesn't make sense

Don’t get too excited yet, though. Ballmer told an audience at a Gartner event in Florida that the iPad version won’t come until after a touch-first version is developed for Windows. My first reaction to the news was to shake my head and wonder if Microsoft is still stubbornly clinging to the idea that it can drive sales of Windows mobile devices by holding Microsoft Office hostage.
