Microsoft Threshold is its Next Wave of Updates to Windows, Windows Phone and Xbox One

After Microsoft’s Operating Systems got launched, there were rumors regarding some pretty cool “Threshold” devices that will be arriving two years from now. If all goes as planned, this new addition will greatly influence the three platforms of Xbox One, Windows and Windows Phone

As for the title, it is derived from the name of the planet in the Halo game which came out in 2001. The new system will be entering the likes of Cortana, which is Microsoft’s rejoinder to Apple’s Siri.  Threshold is not one thing alone. It has many features that are spread out over many platforms. These include hand sets, gadgets and video games. Microsoft’s dream of a single app store may not be so unrealistic after all. It is definitely getting there. 

Threshold will serve as the common factor uniting several platforms. The great value placed on certain activities will figure in the Threshold equation that Microsoft has almost solved. Among these activities may be included: showing/formats; choice/goal-directed behavior; information technology control and finally serious comicality. 

The outgoing CEO, Steve Ballmer had previously passed some remarks regarding the One Microsoft plan that was to be put into action.  When Microsoft spokespersons were asked they refused to divulge any details. Whatever the case, Microsoft is ready to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Despite players such as Apple in the field, Bill Gates’ firm is not one to back down from a challenge.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
