JIANGYIN , Jiangsu, June 10 (Xinhua) -- China's manned submersible Jiaolong, boarding its support ship Xiangyanghong-9, left a port in Jiangyin , east China's Jiangsu province, on Monday, for its first voyage of experimental application.

During the 103-day mission, the sub will submerge for scientific research in the South China Sea , the northeast Pacific Ocean and the west Pacific.

The submersible will for the first time take scientists on board, and so far 14 scientists have been qualified for diving. Each dive will see two aquanauts and one scientist on board.

The research will focus on poly-metallic sulfides, cobalt-rich crusts, deep-sea genetic resources and a survey of the deep-sea environment.

Jiaolong set a new dive record after reaching 7 ,062 meters deep in the Pacific Ocean's Mariana Trench in June 2012, demonstrating China's ability to conduct deep-sea scientific research and resource exploration in 99.8 percent of the world's oceans.

However, Jiaolong is not yet ready for regular operation, according to the State Oceanic Administration (SOA).

The 103-day mission will mark the start of a five-year trial period for the Jiaolong before it starts regular operation.

BEIJING, May 26 (Xinhua) -- IT giant Microsoft is under fire in China as the company pushes users to upgrade their operating systems to Windows 10.

The pop-up upgrade window does not offer a "decline" option, only a choice to upgrade later. Computers running older versions of Windows will automatically start the upgrade at the recommended time if users ignore the pop-up without selecting the easy-to-miss option to delay or cancel the update.

Yang Shuo, who works at a Beijing-based public relations company, said the sudden update interrupted him while drafting a business plan, which led to cancellation of a meeting for a deal worth 3 million yuan (457,500 U.S. dollars).

Yang said he failed to save the draft when his laptop restarted for the update. His clients had left by the time he finally finished the plan.

"Just because I didn't see the pop-up reminder does not mean I agreed," said Yang, adding he did not even know when the installation package was downloaded to the laptop, as he wasn't connected to the Internet when the update started.

Yang is not the only one complaining about the unwanted update. On microblog site Weibo, posts related to Windows 10 reached more than 1.2 million.

"I had ignored all pop-up reminders about the update in past months, but it suddenly started updating automatically," Ning Jiayu, professor at Nankai University in Tianjin, posted on Weibo early on Thursday.

"Can't you stop forcing users to update? Do you know how much work by graphic designers you have ruined?" wrote a graphic designer under the screen name "3jinyeshixin."

Xinhua reporters sent a text message to the Microsoft China office on Thursday, but did not receive a response.

Microsoft technical support staff have posted instructions on the company's official Weibo account for users who want to revert to an earlier version of the operating system.

The company said earlier this month that more than 300 million devices have started using the Windows 10 platform, and the free update will end on July 29.

Experts believe the aggressive update is being pushed as the company tries to secure market share in the face of competitors such as Google and Apple. The company is expected to use Windows 10 as a platform for app development.

Zhao Zhanling, a legal advisor with the Internet Society of China, said Microsoft has not respected users' right to know and choose, especially since the company may eventually profit from the unwanted upgrades.

"The company has abused its dominant market position and broken the market order for fair play," Zhao said.

He said users or consumer protection organizations have the right to file a lawsuit against the company.

The latest on the 2016 presidential campaign from Iowa , Michigan, New York, New Hampshire and Georgia (all times local).

11 p.m.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is the favored presidential candidate among Republicans attending a major political event in Michigan.

Paul got the biggest percentage of votes cast, 22 percent , in the unscientific straw poll released Saturday night at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference.

The survey was conducted by The Detroit News and MIRSnews. It is done mostly for fun and could be a weak predictor of candidate success in the March primary election.

Of the 2,200 conference registrants, 785, or about one-third , participated in the straw poll.

Former tech executive Carly Fiorina took 15 percent of votes cast, followed by Ohio Gov. John Kasich at nearly 14 percent, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with 13 percent and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at nearly 10 percent.

The top five vote-getters among the 16 candidates on the ballot are the five who attended the conference on picturesque Mackinac Island in northern Michigan.

9:30 p.m.

Sen. Ted Cruz is drawing an enthusiastic response from the Christian conservative crowd in Iowa as he criticizes Republican congressional leaders.

The Texas senator says the GOP leaders are not doing enough to defund Planned Parenthood and accuses them of "trying to pound all of us into submission."

Cruz says that if conservatives unite, the GOP primary will be over and that the Washington establishment wants to divide conservatives.

Speaking about the crowded field of candidates , Cruz says voters should look for differences. He says there's a difference between campaign conservatives who talk a good game but haven't walke.
