ARM-powered Windows 10 laptops will arrive this holiday

Remember Windows RT, the stripped back version of Windows 8 meant for ARM-based hardware? It was a complete failure for Microsoft, recreating the desktop environment but little else for the Surface and Lumia 2520. Undeterred, Microsoft is working with Qualcomm to get Windows 10 running on Snapdragon processors. Announced last December, we should see the fruits of that partnership in new hardware later this year. Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf revealed during an investor call: “Our Snapdragon 835 is expanding into mobile PC designs running Windows 10, which are scheduled to launch in the fourth calendar quarter this year.”

Unlike Windows RT, ARM-based hardware running Windows 10 should support proper desktop-class apps. That’s because Microsoft is building an emulator directly into the OS capable of handling Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word, and other desktop staples. That’s a big promise, but one that could change the complexion of the Windows 10 market if successful. For one, it’ll be the same experience that Windows customers are used to — no strange amalgamation of apps and environments like the Surface 2. For another, ARM-based hardware should offer longer battery life, providing better options for people who need stamina more than power.

It’s also possible that ARM-powered laptops will be cheaper than their Intel-based contemporaries. That’s not guaranteed, but if it does happen Microsoft will be better positioned to tackle Chromebooks and iPads in the classroom. The first wave of ARM-based devices will come from other manufacturers, rather than Microsoft’s Surface division. Lenovo is reportedly working on a device, and there’s a good chance we’ll see a few more at Microsoft’s Build conference in Seattle.

MCM: Darey Art Alade is our man crush for today!

Dare (pronounced Da-Ray) Art Alade was born in Lagos to legendary Nigerian Jazz pioneer Art Alade and Olapeju Alade. Dare, as a child, used to rummage through his father’s extensive jazz collection and tag along with him to his concerts. These early experiences gave him his first taste of ‘showbiz’.


From the age 15, he began performing extensively in clubs around Lagos, Ibadan and other cities in Nigeria. It was during one of those late night sessions he met an executive at Cool FM, a major Radio station, who appreciated his voice, and his ability to interact with his audience. The determined teenager began shuttling between Cool FM and the University of Lagos where he was studying for a degree in Music, and sang with the a cappella group The Chordwebs.


Darey’s big break finally came during the 2004 edition of Project Fame Academy, a well renowned Reality TV show and continent-wide talent hunt, where he had the opportunity to perform in front of over 100 million people, and emerged third in the contest.

After an unfruitful record deal with Sony BMG Africa, his debut album ‘From Me 2 U’ hit the Nigerian market two years later on Storm Records. The album was laced with several hit singles, including ‘Fuji’ and ‘Escalade’ which enjoyed massive airplay in the Nigerian and international media. The top selling album also included the song, ‘Original Naija’ which was used as the theme Song for the first ever edition of Big Brother Nigeria. Darey’s album, ‘From Me 2 U’ won several awards including the Awards for Musical excellence in Nigeria (A.M.E.N) and the 2006 Channel O Music Video Awards for best R&B Video in Africa.

In 2008, Darey spent several months as the host of a music based reality show ‘MTN Project Fame West Africa’ from where he first hit continental fame in the South Africa edition in 2004.

Two years after the release of his successful debut album, Darey released his highly anticipated follow up entitled ‘unDAREYted’, on the new start up label, Soul Muzik. The album sold over 150,000 copies across Nigeria in just two months. The album features appearances by Darey’s contemporaries and friends: Cobhams Asuquo (Asa’s producer), 2face Idibia, Naeto C, 9ice, Tee-Y Mix and the up and coming R&B crooner, Pheel, to mention a few. The critically acclaimed work features the smash hit ballad “Not The Girl,” which has been nominated for several awards and won video of the year at the 2009 Nigerian Entertainment Awards held in Washington DC.

In 2010, Darey performed at high profile shows in many cities including a special concert with R&B legend R. Kelly in South Africa and the This Day Peace Concert Tour in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, which had 50 Cent and Ciara as headliners. On request of the President of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, he was invited to perform at the presidential villa in an exclusive dinner to commemorate the Country’s 50th independence Anniversary. At the event, which was broadcast live to over 200 million viewers across the world, he performed a medley of 50 songs with his 15-piece band, “Soul band” to a room filled with several African presidents and past world leaders.

Darey was the main host of both the Gulder Ultimate Search and Glo Naija Sings reality shows in 2011 and in February 2013, put together alongside his Soul Muzik team one of the biggest shows Nigeria has ever seen, Darey Presents: Love Like A Movie in February 2013 which had the red carpet hosted by Kim Kardashian as well as the highly successful release of the music video, “Asiko” featuring Jozi and Ice Prince.
In May 2013 Darey released a new single, Special Fever, produced by internationally acclaimed producer Harmony. In June 2013, hosted the launch of media mogul Mo Abudu’s multi-broadcast network Ebony Life TV alongside Dolapo Oni and most recently signed on as an ambassador to Unilever’s popular beverage drink – Lipton.
Darey is currently a judge on Nigerian Idol, replacing Jeffrey Daniel.
As a philanthropist and humanitarian, Darey supports several causes close to his heart including Cancer charities, Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and several foundations in Africa. He also set up the Art Foundation, whose main goal is to keep music education alive for kids in primary and secondary schools in Africa.

Apart from his accomplishments as a recording artist, music producer, TV/Radio personality and Master of ceremonies, Darey is also an accomplished businessman and philanthropist with backbone support from Soul Muzik his event and TV production company, Soul band and a state of the art production facility, Soul Muzik Studios, where he does all his production and recording.

Bring Back Our Superheroes: not Our Superlongthroats (Our Warriors)

(Hero) Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh. Never Forgotten. Does patriotism runs in the blood? She's Herbert Macaulay's great grand-daughter.
(Warrior) Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh. Never Forgotten. Does patriotism runs in the blood? She’s Herbert Macaulay’s great grand-daughter.

Often times we have been told about the need to be patriotic citizens and how that contributes to the concept of nation building. A phenomenon which is not really popular in Nigeria. We at however do not want the “little things” and sacrifices of the ordinary people who  have dedicated their sweat, blood and lives for the continued existence and prosperity of this country go unsung. And sequel to the post Bring Back our Superheroes: not Our Superlongthroats, here the theme is around celebrating the unsung heroes who saved many lives of Nigerian . It is in this vein that Mr. Akintola Akindele Abdulqadir a poet has composed an highly insightful poem for the victims (dead and alive) and all who volunteered to stop Ebola in Nigeria celebrating their bravery and patriotism. they are our heroes.


While we were in fears,
Running up and down to heaven,
Gladly bathing in salt waters,
To avoid the cold touch of EVD

They put on their battle regalia,
Shine their blades,
Pack their guns,
And off to the war front,
Abandoning their love ones

They place their life in front of death,
Fighting fiercely to win the war,
Within Ninety four days they won,
But at the cost of General Adadevoh and few others

This are our saviours,
The remain forever in our heart,
They are our heroes

#TNMONDAYMOTIVATION: “Character cannot be developed in…” – Helen Keller

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” – Helen Keller.

Helen Adams Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree.

The story of how Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan, broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film The Miracle Worker.

Her birthplace in West Tuscumbia, Alabama, is now a museum and sponsors an annual “Helen Keller Day”. Her birthday on June 27 is commemorated as Helen Keller Day in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania and was authorized at the federal level by presidential proclamation by President Jimmy Carter in 1980, the 100th anniversary of her birth.

A prolific author, Keller was well-traveled and outspoken in her convictions. A member of the Socialist Party of America and the Industrial Workers of the World, she campaigned for women’s suffrage, labor rights, socialism, antimilitarism, and other similar causes.

She was inducted into the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame in 1971 and was one of twelve inaugural inductees to the Alabama Writers Hall of Fame on June 8, 2015.
