Microsoft pulls Google and Facebook chat from Outlook

If you logged into your Outlook account today, you were likely greeted with a message bearing grave news (or mention of a feature you didn't even realize was available): Facebook and Google chat are going away. Until now, Outlook users were able to tie in their other accounts and chat with contacts on both of those aforementioned services -- something that was incredibly convenient and oft requested. All of it is set to fizzle away in the next few weeks, however, and Microsoft isn't being 100-percent clear about why.

Microsoft unleashes OneDrive API for easier in-app use

Microsoft really, really wants you to use OneDrive. As a cloud storage solution, it’s pretty standard fare, so those with existing accounts elsewhere might not be enticed to move. If it were easier to upload to OneDrive, though — you might make the jump. It’s a ploy we see with Dropbox, where ease of uploading (or downloading) files makes their service really attractive. Now, Microsoft is announcing their OneDrive API is ready for Developers, which should bring the cloud storage service everywhere you are, digitally speaking.

Microsoft Band catches up with keyboard, cycling, and SDK

You could be easily forgiven if you've forgotten, or more likely didn't know, that Microsoft just launched it's own smart fitness band. The company itself didn't make such a big fuss out of the Microsoft Band and it was probably smart to do so. The initial experience that we got from our review of the device was nothing to write home about. At least not yet. That was just the beginning, however, as Microsoft is now rolling out a bunch of updates, as well as an announcement, that could turn its first wearable into more than just a flawed promise.

PS4 to top Xbox One in sales through 2018, analysts predict

It's no secret that thus far the PlayStation 4 is winning the current game console war against the Xbox One. The muddled announcements of the latest Xbox with restrictive features and the previous requirement of the always listening camera meant from launch the system was playing catch-up to Sony's PS4. However, some analysts are predicting Microsoft's system to continue to sell fewer numbers all the way into 2018, and by a margin of over 20 million units.

Microsoft baits Dropbox users with 100 GB OneDrive space

Microsoft baits Dropbox users with 100 GB OneDrive space

Inspiration or desperation? Whatever the motivation, Microsoft seems to be kicking its OneDrive campaign into high gear. Last week, it dangled the carrot of 100 GB of free cloud storage for two years in order to get people to sign up for Bing Rewards. This time, it's making a slightly different offer to entice Dropbox users to make the switch. And this time, for those who were irked by the limitations of the previous offer, the free space is available for anyone in the world to claim.
