Microsoft Earn unmasked: tech rewards for normal purchases

Microsoft seems to have the worst kept secret test products lately, especially under the prying eyes of leak source h0x0d. A few of the company's upcoming apps, particularly for Android, have already made rounds over the Internet, and now a new type of product has once again been revealed.

Microsoft new productivity apps leaked; Office Now and OneClip

Microsoft has some new productivity apps in the works for Android, iOS, and of course, Windows Phone. Microsoft is reportedly internally testing apps ranging from an evolved, personal assistant called Office Now to a cross-device cloud-based clipboard called OneClip. Microsoft's Office Now could be the "Personal Agent" that Bill Gates hinted at in a recent Reddit AMA. Gates said at the time, "The idea that you have to find applications and pick them and they each are trying to tell you what is new is just not the efficient model - the agent will help solve this."

Leaked OnePlus 2 specs reveal another “flagship killer”

Despite the rather large setback it experienced in India, it seems that there is no stopping OnePlus yet from taking their "Never Settle" motto for another spin. Dubbed the "flagship killer", at least as far as last year's generation was concerned, the OnePlus One was a formidable smartphone with a formidable price. And it seems to have a successor already popping up in leaks and benchmarks. And it seems that this OnePlus 2, as it is still currently called, might be worthy of that title as well.

It was only yesterday that news broke out that Microsoft might be working on a new email experiment simply called Flow. Now, we're getting some more details as well as some masked screenshots. This e-mail that isn't e-mail app doesn't resemble e-mail at all but behaves like a chat app. And now it seems that form really does follow function. That said, it's simply a wolf in sheep's clothing, so to speak, with the e-mail-centric Exchange server said to be the muscle behind Flow, at least in this testing phase.

Microsoft's Outlook mobile app, basically a rebranded app from newly acquired Accompli, is just starting to take root on Android and iOS. There is no rule, however, that says Microsoft can't start dreaming up and working on the next e-mail killer. A hidden download page for a certain "Flow" app for the iPhone was just discovered, and with it a description of what Redmond might be planning for its next stab at bringing its own brand productivity and communication to mobile platforms that aren't its own.
