Microsoft is has announced it’ll hold an event on September 22 to show off “what’s next” from the company, and it’s widely expected to be a hardware event. Maybe that means the Surface Duo 2 will become official. Maybe it’s time for the company to update its Surface Book 2-in-1 laptop. An updated Surface tablet seems likely, given the image Microsoft is using to promote the event.

Or maybe Microsoft will actually manage to have some surprises that haven’t already been leaked. We’ll find out in a few weeks.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. I won’t pay for Windows 11 if it’s not compatible with My Computer

  2. My guess is that Microsoft is going to be announcing a new ARM-powered Surface product, while simultaneously showing off Windows 11 on ARM. Hopefully they have some exciting things to say about ARM performance. The move from CHPE to ARM64EC seems interesting.

    It’s hard to guess if they’re going to keep using rebranded Snapdragon chips, or if maybe we’re going to hear something bold from them in regards to their rumoured in-house silicon designs. If they announce a Microsoft SOC in a Surface tablet, I will be impressed that they kept a lid on it.

  3. Heads up, my Avast is saying there is malicious content on this page.
    Threat name: URL:Mal
    Severity: 2/3
    Process: /Applications/
    Status: Threat blocked
    This is the only page I have open.

    1. Our hosting service ran a security scan and couldn’t find anything wrong, and our ad partner is pretty sure that this was a false positive, as they’re using a security solution that scans for malware and blocks it.

      While it’s possible that something may slip through the cracks from time to time, it’s usually blocked moving forward (and I’m told that it’s more common for anti-virus software running on PCs to flag a false positive than it is for malware to make it to the ad server… so I cannot promise that there’s nothing to worry about, I think we’ve done about as much as we can for now).

      Again, thanks for letting me know though!
