Microsoft's first big Anniversary Update for Windows 10 went live earlier this month. With it came improved pen performance, new Cortana features and an all around better Windows. Two weeks later, it's become clear that the Anniversary update has some big problems. First, some users were plagued with a system-wide freeze after logging into Windows, and now Paul Thurrott reports that the OS is killing certain webcams.

Microsoft released Windows 10 in the winter of 2015, but unlike previous versions of the operating system, it was meant to be the "final" version of Windows, updated into perpetuity. Now, the company is preparing its first major update available to everyone on August 2.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
