Surface Duo passes by the FCC hinting at imminent launch

Surface Duo passes by the FCC hinting at imminent launch

That Microsoft will launch the Surface Duo this year is, at least as far as we know, still on the table. Given recent rumors, however, the question has become more of a "when" than an "if". Initially believed to be launching this month, there have been a few disappointing words that the dual-screen foldable would be delayed, which only increases the risk of pushing it back further and further until 2021 is gone and done. Fortunately, that might not be the case if the Surface Duo has indeed just landed at the FCC, signaling that the time draws nigh.

Microsoft Edge multitasking features could end up cluttering your desktop

Microsoft Edge multitasking features could end up cluttering your desktop

Rebasing Edge on Chromium rather than continuing its home-made web browser engine has freed up Microsoft to focus on other features that will differentiate its browser from Chrome. Some of those it pushes back to improve that open source Chromium foundation but others are pretty much exclusive to Edge or even for Windows only.

Microsoft Teams new features adapt to the new normal of work

Microsoft Teams new features adapt to the new normal of work

When Microsoft created Teams to compete with then rising communication star Slack, it probably didn't predict a workplace that would instantly become practically virtual because of a pandemic. That has become an opportunity and a motivation for the company to quickly push out features that will help workers, managers, and employers adjust to what has been dubbed as the new normal. Microsoft is now announcing its biggest feature dump for Teams yet and it unsurprisingly starts with trying to one-up the video conferencing king, Zoom.

Huawei 5G ban could affect Google Stadia, Microsoft xCloud the most

Huawei 5G ban could affect Google Stadia, Microsoft xCloud the most

For all the promises and hype generated by proponents last year, the rollout of 5G networks even in major markets has been too slow to truly take hold of consumers' consciousness. That already slow rollout, however, may have hit another hump with more and more countries pushing Huawei out of their 5G infrastructure and plans.
