Clutter for Office 365 trains to declutter your Inbox

Clutter for Office 365 trains to declutter your Inbox

In addition to the previously reported "Delve", a new "smart" feature for Microsoft's Office 365 suite has arrived, this time carrying a perhaps more suitable name. Simply called "Clutter", this new feature leverages Microsoft's Office Graph technology to inject a bit of machine learning in helping people get out of the mess that is their Inbox. And somewhat like other smart email apps now in existence, Clutter brings more important messages to the top of your queue, moving negligible ones out of the way. But it also needs your help to do so.

Microsoft Lumia 535 details leaked, Lumia 1330 sighted

There are two new Lumia devices rumored to be in the works, a smaller Lumia 535 and a murkier Lumia 1330. But with the myriad, though not exactly ubiquitous, Lumias around, what makes these two devices special? If these turn out to be the real deal, the two smartphones would be the first to bear the new "Microsoft Lumia" branding being pushed by the company. And if so, we are likely to see the two of them unveiled in Microsoft's #MoreLumia event scheduled this Tuesday.

Does anyone really care the Nokia mobile brand is dead?

Does anyone really care the Nokia mobile brand is dead?

Nokia’s mobile brand is officially dead. After Microsoft bought the company, it took only months for it to decide that using the Nokia brand meant little and it could walk away from it without offending too many customers or worrying about losing market share. It was an historic moment, but it was a necessary one in Microsoft’s mind, and it was perhaps an end of era in the industry.

Microsoft teases new Lumia phone coming November 11

Apparently it hasn't taken long for Microsoft to fully lay claim to its shiny new non-Nokia Microsoft-only Lumia name. After a brief sighting of a Microsoft smartphone at TENAA earlier this week, Microsoft is officially teasing the public and its fans with what would be the first Microsoft Lumia smartphone in history. With nothing but a cropped section of what seems to be the same leaked device, Microsoft is saying that it has #MoreLumia in store for everyone. But you'll have to wait for November 11 to find out what.

Office for iPhone debuts as Microsoft drops 365 sub need

Office for iPhone debuts as Microsoft drops 365 sub need

Microsoft refuses to slow down on its software push, with a new free Office suite for iPhone and by dropping its Office 365 subscription requirement for its iOS and upcoming Android apps, as it redoubles its efforts to grab mobile user share. The new Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps for iPhone - taking on Apple's own Pages, Numbers, and Keynote - arrive alongside updates to the same apps for iPad, but also see Microsoft announce a new Office for Android tablets beta program. Though not quite open for business yet, Android tablet owners can sign up for when the apps are released in early 2015.

Jawbone UP3 hands-on – Smarter sensing, cleverer coaching

Jawbone UP3 hands-on – Smarter sensing, cleverer coaching

If you're going to ask someone to wear a fitness tracker 24/7, it better be good, and Jawbone believes its come up with a killer in the new UP3. It's 30-percent smaller than Jawbone's old flagship, with a new design from Yves Behar, but this is no simple remolding of an UP24, however. Instead, it's the launch vehicle for the company's new multi-sensor platform, stepping beyond the simple accelerometer found in most wearables and adding a new bioimpedance sensor among others for not only movement, sleep, and heart tracking, but the promise of even more in-depth metrics that can be unlocked with a simple firmware update. I stopped by Jawbone to find out why UP3 could put other wearables to shame.

Dropbox and Microsoft team on Office iOS & Android cloud

Dropbox and Microsoft team on Office iOS & Android cloud

Dropbox and Microsoft might not seem like the most obvious of bedfellows, what with Microsoft already having its own OneDrive cloud storage service, but sure enough the two are teaming up to integrate Dropbox into the Office apps for iOS and Android. The pairing, which will be enabled when Microsoft pushes out new versions of its Office apps in a few weeks time, will open the door to direct access to files stored in Dropbox from the Office apps themselves, as well as embed Office editing directly into the Dropbox app. While it may seem counter-productive for Microsoft, it could make a big difference for Office adoption across Apple and Google's platforms.

Xbox One price gets the holiday ax, bundles available too

Xbox One price gets the holiday ax, bundles available too

As mentioned last week, Microsoft is cutting down the price for the Xbox One, albeit temporarily only. The $50 discount, which brings the Kinect-less package down to $349 at the lowest, will be available across all units and bundles. The official statement is that this is to match the upcoming holiday season and to save gamers from grueling long Black Friday lines by buying their packages early. We'll give them the benefit of the doubt that this isn't about the Xbox One's sales trailing behind its PS4 rival.
