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).

Air France customers will be able to be reimbursed for canceled flights

At the end of April, the French consumer association UFC-Que Choisir had "given notice" to 57 airlines to allow reimbursement to customers of tickets canceled due to the coronavirus epidemic, in application of European regulations.

"The recent developments in the world health situation and the gradual lifting of confinements gives better visibility on the evolution of the flight program for the coming months," the group said in a statement posted on its website.

Customers always encouraged to choose a credit

"Air France and KLM have therefore decided to adjust their refund policy for cancellations of flights effective from May 15: the customers concerned will have the choice between a credit or a refund," he said.




The airline group warns, however, that "the processing of these requests could take longer", due to "the magnitude of the crisis and the number of cancellations".

And customers are encouraged to continue to opt for a credit, with the promise of a 15% bonus on the value of the initial ticket if this credit is carried over to a subsequent reservation.
