Microsoft changed the default folder icon in Windows 10 to a flat, closed folder. If you prefer the open folder icon from Windows 7, you can make that the default folder icon in Windows 10 with a registry tweak.
Android apps are coming to Chromebooks, and the ASUS Chromebook Flip is the first device to get a taste of what that’s going to be like.

There’s an emergency and you have to use someone else’s locked iPhone to call for help. Or, you need to call for help using your own iPhone, but it’s out of your reach or you’re not able to dial a number.
