First Click: Windows 10 updates, the best Chromebook, Apple and Google earnings, and more in the week ahead

July 25th, 2016

This week we're kicking things off with a closer look at the Windows 10 Anniversary Update later today, a few days before Microsoft celebrates the first year of Windows 10.

Tuesday will be full of Chromebook reviews with our best Chromebook recommendations. Tuesday will also be the beginning of earnings season for a number of tech companies. Apple reports its earnings tomorrow, and we're expecting to hear whether iPhone sales have declined once again. Twitter will also report its earnings on Tuesday, so we'll have a better idea of whether it has managed to lure people into using the service.

In the entertainment world, we'll be reviewing Meera Menon's Equity on Wednesday, alongside an interview with Tallulah director Sian Heder. Wednesday will also include Facebook earnings, to show the world exactly how the social media giant continues to dominate.

If you haven't become bored with earnings by Thursday then Google and Amazon will be releasing their latest reports, rounding off a week of financial data.

Before we step into the world of Wall Street, let's check out exactly what happened over the weekend and recap some of the bigger stories.
