USB logos finally make sense, thanks to a redesign

The USB Implementors Forum unveiled new logos on Friday for laptop ports, chargers, and cables that actually try to communicate what each one does. It's a far cry from the nightmare naming scheme that the USB-IF implemented in 2009. It's worth noting that the names of each specification apparently haven't changed, but the logos have, and that's all that matters.

USB-IF executives said the new logos were established alongside the new 240W USB-C power specification, which can now charge USB-C powered laptops at the levels required by even some gaming laptops. Now, the various USB specifications are defined by their speed. Charging specifications are defined by their wattage, with logos that actually indicate this.

"With the new higher power capabilities enabled by the USB PD 3.1 Specification, which unlocks up to 240W over a USB Type-C cable and connector, USB-IF saw an opportunity to further strengthen and simplify its Certified Logo Program for the end user," said Jeff Ravencraft, USB-IF President and chief operating officer, in a statement. "With our updated logos, consumers can easily identify the USB4 performance and USB Power Delivery capabilities of Certified USB-C cables, which support an ever-expanding ecosystem of consumer electronics from laptops and smartphones to displays and chargers."

Check out the new logos, which will be used on packaging, ports, and device power ports:

The Windows 11 2022 Update arrives with a feature we didn't expect

Microsoft's use of "Windows 11 2022 Update" tips off one key change. Instead of feature releases in both the spring and fall, Microsoft plans just one major Windows 11 feature release per year going forward. Any feature that misses this window will be added in what Microsoft calls "controlled feature rollouts," with minor updates pretty much whenever Microsoft feels like it.

The first feature rollout is due in October via an "optional non-security preview," and is expected to add a tabbed File Explorer that has gone missing in the Windows 11 2022 Update. Otherwise, the new feature will be more broadly rolled out in November, Microsoft says.

Microsoft, however, has made previews available of 22H2 for months now, including the Release Preview we've used that as the basis of our review of the Windows 11 2022 Update (22H2). The Windows 11 2022 Update (22H2) is a middling release that adds new features — just not ones that users really hoped to see. While our review adds more detail, the key changes the update adds include new folders in the Start menu, a reworking of the File Explorer UI, a Snap Bar, and key improvements in accessibility features, including AI-generated Live Captions for video stored on your PC.

Is Apple preparing its big idea for digital health?
As this year's iPhone and Apple Watch launch approaches, it is always good sport to read through the pre-event hype. But one topic that doesn't appear much discussed is how Apple may be setting the scene for platform proliferation for its smartwatch.

Big change in tiny packages The company is reaching into its "tried and tested" playbook to achieve this. In this case, it looks as if the company plans to give us more for less as recent speculation suggests a new and lower cost Apple Watch SE. If this is true, any Apple move to bring its smartwatch within the grasp of more people than before is going to be 99% business and 1% altruism. So what's the business motivation?

Think twice before deploying Windows' Controlled Folder Access
As ransomware attacks gained steam in the mid-2010s, Microsoft sought to give Windows users and admins tools to protect their PCs from such attacks. With its October 2017 feature update, the company added a feature called Controlled Folder Access to Windows 10.

On paper, Controlled Folder Access sounds like a great protection for consumers, home users, and small businesses with limited resources. As defined by Microsoft, "Controlled folder access helps protect your valuable data from malicious apps and threats, such as ransomware. Controlled folder access protects your data by checking apps against a list of known, trusted apps. Supported on Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2022, Windows 10, and Windows 11 clients, controlled folder access can be turned on using the Windows Security App, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, or Intune (for managed devices)."
