Microsoft Skips Windows 9, Introduces Windows 10
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) appears to have decided to entirely skip the idea of Windows 9 and release their next version of Windows as Windows 10. The company’s new strategy does in fact do what the company has been aiming to do for quite some time. It helps unify the marketplaces and apps while still giving people customizeable experiences depending on the platform that they’re using. So now users can use the same app on their phone, tablet, and PC while also being able to (hopefully) share data across those devices through the cloud. They are also bringing back the start menu and getting rid of the full-page
Google Introduces Free Calling via Hangouts
Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) today announced that via an update to Google Hangouts users will be able to make free phone calls to eachother as well as to numbers within the US and Canada. The search giant is also introducing “affordable” calling rates abroad, which should equate to a few cents a minute. This is a clear extension of the company’s Voice service, which has been rumored to be killed off but really only appears to become integrated into Hangouts. This move makes sense as Google has been quietly trying to integrate all forms of communication, Voice, Video and Chat under one app. Right now, hangouts combines chat

EA has been doing this a lot lately, giving away slightly out of date games to Origin users for free.

T-Mobile's New Free Music Streaming Violates Net Neutrality
Normally, when a company violates something such as Net Neutrality it generally is in the company’s best interest and they are looking for ways to make things more profitable and less valuable to consumers. A perfect example of that is with what Comcast is doing to Netflix (and others) in terms of requiring them to pay for prioritization in violation of Net Neutrality. This ultimately hurts Netflix and Netflix users that might be on Comcast, resulting in everyone but Comcast losing. Now, T-Mobile as part of their Uncarrier 5.0 and Uncarrier 6.0 initiatives made an announcement that they would be allowing users to stream music for
Unreal Tournament is Coming Back
As a huge fan of Unreal Tournament, I have been waiting for this day for a very long time. In fact, since Unreal Tournament 3 came out in 2007 a lot of people have been waiting for a new Unreal Tournament game, it has been nearly 7 years since the last Unreal Title and now Epic Games has finally announced they will start to develop a new Unreal Tournament game with help from the community. The new game will be based on Unreal Engine 4, which is Epic’s latest and greatest game engine and as a result, it will look and perform absolutely fantastically. Not
Microsoft's New Strategy – Clean Up Windows, Become Strong 3rd Competitor
If you haven’t been following Microsoft lately, then you’re missing out on what could be one of the most significant changes of strategy I’ve seen in a long time. They have slowly been making baby steps towards reorganizing and reconsidering how they address mobile. I have been following Microsoft’s attitudes towards mobile since Windows Mobile 5.0 and even owned a fair amount of Windows-based devices over the course of that time. However, Microsoft made a lot of mistakes along the way and is finally making major changes to remedy them. And with the smartphone market being a virtual duopoly between Android and iOS it comes
