Alexa: Amazon’s Operating System – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
In short, Amazon is building the operating system of the home — its name is Alexa — and it has all of the qualities of an operating system you might expect:

All kinds of hardware manufacturers are lining up to build Alexa-enabled devices, and will inevitably compete with each other to improve quality and lower prices.
Even more devices and appliances are plugging into Alexa’s easy-to-use and flexible framework, creating the conditions for a moat: appliances are a lot more expensive than software, and lot longer lasting, which means everyone who buys something that works with Alexa is much less likely to switch

Microsoft bringing full Windows 10 to ARM devices with Qualcomm partnership - GeekWire
Microsoft will again seek to expand the reach of its Windows PC operating system to devices running mobile-oriented ARM processors, through a partnership with Qualcomm announced tonight at the Windows Hardware Engineering Community event (WinHEC) in China.

The company has tried this before, through a version of Windows 8 called Windows RT that was designed for ARM processors. But that version flopped due in large part to the inability to run traditional Windows apps on those devices. This time, Microsoft will use emulation technology to allow Windows 10 on ARM to run x86 Win32 apps such including Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Office, among many others.

IBM says it is 3X more expensive to manage PCs than Macs | Computerworld
IBM today told the record-setting seventh Jamf Nation User Conference that it is saving even more money by deploying Macs across the company than it thought: each Mac deployment saves the company up to $535 over four years, in contrast to the $270 per Mac it claimed last year.

That’s a hugely significant statistic for any Mac user and follows extensive use of the platform by IBM. IBM VP of Workplace as a Service, Fletcher Previn, told the conference that 90,000 employees are now using Macs, up from 30,000 in 2015. 100,000 of IBM’s global workforce will be using Macs by the end of the year, he said, and the number is climbing.

Instagram now has an app for Windows 10 tablets | TechCrunch
Instagram has expanded its app availability to users of tablets running Microsoft’s Windows 10. The Facebook-owned, visual content social sharing platform announced the new app in a blog post yesterday. It’s most notable as there’s still no iPad app for Instagram. Although Instagram launched a Windows 10 Mobile app back in April.

Instagram says any device running Windows 10 can use its app, which is available for download in the Windows App Store. Although, for Windows 10 devices other than tablets and smartphones, it notes certain features may not be supported — such as capturing and uploading videos or photos. (As The Verge notes, the app requires a touchscreen Windows 10 device to actually upload content.)
