Microsoft, ASUS patent pact means more smartphone bloatware

Microsoft's new mission seems to be to embrace its former enemies, from writing a Linux-based system, to coddling Android users, to catering to Apple fans. Of course, in most cases, it isn't doing so for free. Microsoft may be backing down on some of its patent lawsuits against Android, but in some cases it comes with a price more than just monetary settlement. "Expanding" on a patent licensing accord that the two earlier made, ASUS has agreed to, among other things, pre-install Microsoft's Office apps on its Android devices.

New ASUS ZenFone 2 is a 4GB RAM smartphone you can afford

Perhaps inspired by Apple's 16 GB iPhone 6s, ASUS has surprisingly put out a new variant of its ZenFone 2 flagship with a similar amount of internal storage space. But while you might be quick to dismiss this model because of that memory size, better check again. This one touts a generous amount of RAM, now at 4 GB. That's the same trailblazer size that the highest end ZenFone 2 sported. But it is also considerably cheaper than that one, just a little over $200.
