Today's topics include Microsoft setting its sights on OEMs, the appeal of the FCC’s net neutrality decision is heard in federal court, HP Inc. announced it will be exiting the low-end tablet market, and rumors that Toshiba and Fujitsu could be merging their PC businesses.

Microsoft is setting its sights on original equipment manufacturers and original device manufacturers with Windows 10 IoT Core Pro.

In a Dec. 3 announcement posted to Microsoft's Windows Experience Blog, Billy Anders, partner director of program management for Microsoft Windows IoT, unveiled the software.

An OEM version of the Windows operating system for Internet of things devices, Windows 10 IoT Core Pro provides the ability to defer updates and control the distribution of updates through Windows Server Update Services.

With these options, Microsoft is bringing flexibility for its partners and customers to help meet their servicing needs while ensuring their devices are secure and managed.

The future of the Federal Communications Commission's Open Internet order is in the hands of a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

The panel heard arguments on Dec. 4 challenging the FCC's decision to reclassify the Internet as a telecommunications service under Title II of the Communications Act.

Challengers are claiming that the FCC exceeded its authority and that the agency violated the Administrative Procedures Act. Brookings Institution Fellow Stuart Brotman said the issue is whether the law supports the FCC's actions.

HP Inc. is getting out of the low-end tablet market, opting instead to focus on higher-cost, higher-profit devices.

The company has a healthy list of tablets on its Website that run as high as $1,499, but the two remaining low-end Android-based tablets—the $100 HP 7 G2 and $150 HP 8 G2—are out of stock.

Most of the tablets on the list run Windows. HP officials say they are turning their attention more to devices aimed at the commercial market.

Japanese tech vendors Toshiba and Fujitsu reportedly are considering merging their struggling PC units in an attempt to create a stronger company in a shrinking market and to save costs by ridding themselves of unprofitable businesses.

Reuters and Asian business daily Nikkei reported that the companies are about to begin negotiating an agreement that could lead to the launch of a new company that would integrate everything from products and staff to global operations, R&D and sales.
