    Does it have cameras to inspect contents of the fridge?

    Yes, I feel like computer-on-fridge has been pushed around since the 90s. After that it'll be robot pet, voice recognition software, VR and then computer fridge again.

    I don't think it has cameras, but the screen is translucent! I want translucent screen, but I didn't expect it to be in a fridge door.

    hope so, it would be freeze to play. ;) And would have DLCs of any DLC.

    From now on Cortana is going to have absolute control over our diet, hopefully only some will die of famine, sheer natural selection.

    more captures...

    But now it's different, it runs Windows 10. And when Win10 freezes after a month of use, it will be considered a feature since it's a fridge afterall. They'll just say that the fridge is so damn good that Windows 10 has frozen, when in reality it happened due to bad windows updates or malware infection.

    It's a brilliant (somewhat) use of translucent screens. There was an article about how we now have the technology, but no one wants them - try working on a see-through spreadsheet or word document.

    I believe the fridge should make coffee with the fridge's waste heat, though. And print pictures/photo, and even train tickets and such. And has party lights inside for special occasions. And fish tank for live cold water fish you can order from the web.

    You got it backwards. They'll remove the freeze feature you may have paid for since not even professional cooks can't cope with dietary group policies and such, but if you want it to actually freeze stuff you'll need to get the industrial enterprise version.


    But not all is lost, at least you will still be able to watch some ads on a big shiny metal cabinet.

    A good point made on The Verge's comments : this gets security updates until 2025 (at least). After a few years of unsupported Android and "IoT" stuff (think a bluetooth door lock that any idiot can open with the right software) we'll *want* Windows for such use cases. It's already dominant on user facing embedded stuff like ATM, bike rental kiosk actually, just not quite Windows 10 yet.

    Unless that lady is tiny those are some massive bottles
    (facepalm) MS - just doesnt get it, there are reasons that win8 & windows phone tanked, chiefly it looks like crap
    yet they still persist, to paraphrase brando 'they could of been a contender'

    Uh. I have not realized that much that it looks that bad, for a simple reason : Windows 8/10 is the version that sucks so much, people don't even pirate it. Not having real experience with it is common among people, and the brain may tune these tile screen things out when we try to get to the real desktop, as if they were unwanted porn popups.


    There's something wrong when a totalitarian state that everyone hates and which pays shit wages like $15 a month can copy the colored tile design, but make it look better. (captures from an SDTV broadcast put on youtube)

    More colors? Looks like Microsoft selected four or five colors plus black and white, paid a ton of money to experts to determine those colors and the font as their "visual identity". Perhaps it's just the colors for Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Outlook, Access etc. shortcuts. Design by committe with "visual branding", which also means that the user doesn't get to change color schemes.

    Tiles can be any color a developer wants it to be. It doesn't even have to be a color, it can be a picture. That's been true for Windows 8.0-10.0.

    I personally like the look. I have one Windows 7 and one Windows Vista machine still and I absolutely cannot stand having to use the start menu in those. So much more clunky to use the old start menu. For those machines I'd be happier with no start menu and just a blank field to type in the name of the application since that's all I use the start menu for on those machines.

    Regards,
    SB

    Only chance I'd buy that fridge is if that girl in the picture steps out of it after uncrating it in my kitchen... :lol:

    So, uh, the person there subsists entirely on what appears to be BBQ sauce, wine, beer and artichokes? Doesn't seem like a healthy diet! :lol:

    They're also a bit OCD as they have to arrange them in twos and threes.

    The font used, Segoe UI, was designed by typographers exclusevly for MS.

    If so, then massive fail and waste of money. It looks pretty much like most any other sans serif font. Just like Apple's vaunted "San Fransisco" font. Haven't I seen that typeface in like a million other places? Yes. Yes I have!

    The point of fonts is that letters are instantly recognizable. If it looks very similar to other fonts, I'd call it a win. For people with an eye for that stuff, it does have a bit of its own personality, just subtly so, which is the right way to do it for a general purpose UI font.
