Paper by FiftyThree intros Think Kit for better graphs and charts

Paper by FiftyThree intros Think Kit for better graphs and charts

Paper by FiftyThree is a pretty robust app for those who have artistic flair. For the rest of us, it’s an app for doodling. And for the rest of us, FiftyThree now has a new set of tools named Think Kit, which is aimed at the more linear thinking crowd. The tools allow for the easy drawing of graphs and charts via Paper while still retaining some artistic flair. The backbone of Think Kit is FiftyThree’s Intention Engine, which recognizes your terrible drawings and corrects them into something a bit more visually appealing.

Google I/O 2015: Android M and a sock-disturbing wearable

Now that the Google I/O schedule is here, a lot is being made of little tidbits of info found in the session descriptions. That’s exactly what they’re there for; to get bloggers speculating and fans excited. As we find more breadcrumbs on the way to Google I/O later this month, two early curiosities pop out. First, there’s a single mention of ‘Android M’ in an Android at Work breakout session. Second, a wearable that will “literally” blow our socks off.

HoloLens hands-on: Building for Windows Holographic

HoloLens hands-on: Building for Windows Holographic

Back in January, HoloLens was a Frankenstein’s monster of a headset. In fact, the eyepiece itself was only part of the test rig: the rest was conspicuously tethered to it with a physical cable hooked up to a Windows 10 PC. To say there’s been a dramatic shift in hardware in the ninety days or so since then is an understatement. Microsoft brought a fleet of HoloLens prototypes to BUILD 2015, each of them a standalone computer, eyepiece, sensor rig, and spatial sound system all integrated into a single headset, and offered me the opportunity to see what creating a Windows Holographic experience was like.

Microsoft BUILD 2015 Day 1 Wrap-up: Windows 10 cross-device functionality

Microsoft BUILD 2015 Day 1 Wrap-up: Windows 10 cross-device functionality

This morning Microsoft revealed a new hand of cards at BUILD 2015, a set of announcements that place Windows 10 squarely at the center of their play for all screens. All screens, that is to say, and all connections between screens. One major example of this connectivity is in Continuum, a system that allows your Windows 10 operating system to convert its user interface for all manner of different devices. Your phone is now your desktop, and your display is now just that - the place where your Windows 10 is shown in a large space.

Office 365 opens 3rd-party add-ons for Uber in your Outlook

Office 365 opens 3rd-party add-ons for Uber in your Outlook

Microsoft has already been been pushing Office 365 cross-platform, but now it's opening up to third-party services, with names like Uber and LinkedIn already onboard. Demonstrated on-stage at the BUILD 2015 keynote, the functionality will allow companies who offer stock images to have them show up in the sidebar on PowerPoint, for instance, or allow Outlook to help not only schedule an Uber journey, but tell the service where you're going to.

Microsoft outs free coding tools for Mac and Linux

Microsoft outs free coding tools for Mac and Linux

Microsoft may have opened BUILD 2015 with a deep-dive into Azure rather than the Windows 10 release date we were hoping for, but it does have a freebie to sweeten the schedule. Walking through how Microsoft's cloud services can be used to streamline developers getting their apps and service online, the company announced a new app, Visual Studio Code, which not only will be available for those on Windows but offer a local app for Mac and Linux users too.

Apple’s Tim Cook is up for auction again

Apple’s Tim Cook is up for auction again

Tim Cook is up for auction, or at least an hour of the Apple CEO's time, along with the opportunity to attend a future keynote for those with suitably deep wallets. The chief executive - who has been increasingly outspoken on equal rights, marriage equality, and other topics in recent months - is again offering a chunk out of his busy day in the name of raising cash for charity, and with bids already well in excess of the estimate and still twenty days to run, it could even end up eclipsing Cook's previous blockbuster sale of his company.
