Microsoft Curbs Cortana in Windows 10

Microsoft has decided to restrict its Cortana digital assistant to operating with the Edge browser and Bing search engine in Windows 10. “As Windows 10 has grown in adoption and usage, we have seen some software programs circumvent [its] design and redirect you to search providers that were not designed to work with Cortana,” said Ryan Gavin, Microsoft’s general manager of search and Cortana.

Restoration Of Le Mans-Winning Ford GT40 Mk II Continues: Video

The restoration of the 1966 Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 Mk II P1046 continues with the latest video to come out of RK Motors Charlotte.

If you recall, the first part of the web series was posted last week in which we learned that Rob Kaufman, the owner of RK Motors Charlotte, began an ambitious project to restore the legendary race car back to its championship glory. Together with the help of Rare Drive, Inc., RK Motors Charlotte took the arduous task of bringing P1046 back to the configuration of its history-making achievement, considered by many as the greatest racing moment in Ford history.

Whereas the first video mainly focused on the history of the car, this one gives us a close look on the preparations that have been made and the first task of actually disassembling the race car. As explained by the host, a lot of work was already done on the iconic race car, including the shortening of the tail section, the installation of a large roll cage, and the refitting of the entire interior, which was sadly brushed aside when the car was ignominiously turned into a transmission test mule after its victory in Le Mans.

The entire project is far from complete and more videos are expected to be released in the coming weeks. The plan is for the project to be completed in time for the 24 Hours of Le Mans where it will be participating in the 50th anniversary of Ford’s transcendent victory in the world’s most famous endurance race.
