Microsoft To Announce Windows 8 Updates At BUILD

The company will add search, power and settings buttons to the Start page, as these had been previosuly "hidden' on the left side of the screen in Windows 8. The update also promises easier ways to close apps.

Microsoft will be also update the Windows Phone system to work better in corporate environments. The company will add VPN support, will allow phones to have two SIM cards.
