Xbox All Access: What you need to know

Xbox All Access: What you need to know

Earlier today, Microsoft announced a new way to buy an Xbox One console called Xbox All Access. Instead of requiring you to drop hundreds of dollars upfront, Xbox All Access takes the cost of an Xbox One console and splits it up into 24 monthly payments. Once you're done making those payments, the Xbox is yours to keep. It all seems pretty straightforward, but as always, there are some things to know before you dive in.

Windows 95 released as an app: Download out now

Windows 95 released as an app: Download out now

The 1990s were a wacky and wild time, thanks in part the rise of the internet and the widespread adoption of personal computers. Anyone who was around in the mid-90s will remember just how big of a release Windows 95 was, with people lining up at stores to buy a copy of the OS and Microsoft launching a multi-million dollar advertising campaign that included recruiting Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry to make a ridiculous instructional video. Windows 95 was a big deal at the time, and it seems silly to think of people having that kind of reaction to a new operating system these days.

Windows 10 Universal File Explorer update hints at interesting future

Windows 10 Universal File Explorer update hints at interesting future

When Microsoft launched its touch-centric Windows 8 for the desktop, it was met with a great deal of resistance to the radically different way of interacting with desktops. Microsoft has since then stepped back a bit and offered the familiar traditional Windows desktop again. It has, however, flip-flopped between touch-based and non-touch UIs. Case in point is the telling lack of a touch-based file manager on Windows 10. Things, however, seem to be changing with some surprising updates to the UWP universal File Explorer that might be setting the stage for the ever-elusive Project Andromeda foldable device.

Windows Phone 8’s, Windows 8’s days are numbered, literally

Windows Phone 8’s, Windows 8’s days are numbered, literally

It was not as disastrous as the Windows ME or Windows Vista (though some might argue that it was) but Windows 8 and even Windows 8.1 were met with far more resistance than Microsoft was expecting. That unwelcoming atmosphere was extended to Windows Phone 8, which was actually less problematic, forever cursing that “8” generation. Given those factors, it’s somewhat surprising that Microsoft has continued supporting the OS this long though now it is finally giving out the dates when Windows 8/8.1 and Windows Phone 8.x can effectively retire.

Surface Go: what you’re really paying for

Surface Go: what you’re really paying for

There are few things in tech history that have gone down in history to be so polarizing, like Apple’s removal of the headphone jack, the notch, and the Surface Go. Reviews are all over the place but, unsurprisingly, they can be easily grouped into the +1s and the -1s. And it is one of those rare cases on the Internet where both sides are actually right. Because at the end of the day, the Surface Go’s real problem isn’t its specs, the iPad, or even Windows 10 S mode. Its real enemy is perception.
