Windows 10: the blocking for the 2004 version is lifted on the Surface

Technology: Microsoft was preventing certain Surface devices from updating to the 2004 version due to technical issues. The blockade was lifted on June 29.
Microsoft releases the block it placed on certain Surface devices to prevent them from updating to version 2004. This block prevented users of certain Surface models manufactured by Microsoft, including Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7, from downloading and manually install the latest Windows 10 feature update.

According to information released as part of the May 2020 update, devices with more than one network adapter capable of operating in "Always On, Always Connected" mode may experience unexpected shutdowns and reboots. The Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7 both fall into this category. (Other surface devices can also be included; I asked Microsoft for a list of affected devices, but got no response).

Boeing breaks flight time record thanks to storm Ciara

New York has never been so close to London. As storm Ciara hits northern Europe this Sunday, February 9, a British Airways Boeing 747-400 has just broken a record. Indeed, as spotted by FlightRadar24, relayed by LCI, the plane which linked New York to London arrived with more than an hour in advance. While the journey time to cover these 5,554 kilometers is usually 6:13, the British company's aircraft took only 4.56 hours.

Boeing breaks flight time record thanks to storm Ciara

It is thanks to a very powerful "Jet stream" that this Boeing 747 was able to achieve this feat, with an average speed of 1,100 km / h. This altitude air current was then rectilinear with winds at more than 350km / h. Storm Ciara was still at this time off Canada. The previous record went back to January 2018. A Norwegian Boeing 787 had taken 5:13 to connect the Big Apple to London, recalls the site FlightRadar24.

If we're not mistaken, BA now retakes the fastest subsonic NY-London crossing from Norwegian.


 
Storm Ciara is expected to hit the northern part of France this Sunday at midday. 35 departments have been placed on orange alert. Gusts of over 150 km / h are expected next night in some regions. On the coast, vigilance will be increased with the risk of strong waves.
