We're looking... a bit... forward to it.

Windows 10 Anniversary Update in summer: Hello, Ink, Gaming, more Cortana

Windows 10 Anniversary Update in summer: Hello, Ink, Gaming, more Cortana

270 million. That's how many devices are now running Windows 10 already, according to Microsoft, at least. Considering the OS was launched just eight months ago, that might indeed be a world record, thanks to Microsoft rather aggressive, almost contentious, push. Unlike other Windows versions, however, Windows 10 isn't meant to be a completely finished product with minor "service pack" updates down the road. Instead, the "Windows as a Service" entails continuous updates, some of them quite major, during its lifetime. The Anniversary Update slated for summer this year is one such update and it will indeed be quite a big one.

Microsoft asks if Xbox gamers OK with selling back titles

Microsoft asks if Xbox gamers OK with selling back titles

Before digital copies of video games proliferated, there was a sub-market that thrived in selling second hand, or "slightly used", cartridges and discs for a fraction of the original price. GameStop is just the latest and most legit incarnation, but selling a game you're already done with, or didn't like, wasn't that alien a concept back then. And then Steam and its ilk happened. Doing the same with digital copies has been next to impractical but based on a survey for Xbox gamers, Microsoft might be interested in it.
