LEGO Batman Movie game released INSIDE LEGO Dimensions

LEGO Batman Movie game released INSIDE LEGO Dimensions

Welcome to the future of LEGO games - at least for the foreseeable future - as the LEGO Batman Movie heads to LEGO Dimensions. Instead of releasing a whole extra game that'd go on sale now and sell for 3 weeks and sit on store shelves for months thereafter, the LEGO Company might've just gotten smart. Integrating the movie into the LEGO Dimensions universe makes for an awesome impetus to buy the platform and allows the "LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack for LEGO Dimensions" remain a viable purchase for months to come.

Windows 10’s Project NEON look might throw off users again

Microsoft is no stranger to design changes that incite an angry mob, from the new Start menu in Windows 7 to the Ribbon UI in Office to the Metro/Modern UI in from Windows Phone to Windows 8 to present. While it won’t be introducing anything as drastic as those, the so-called Project NEON design change could still ruffle a few feathers, confuse not a small amount of people, and question Microsoft’s usability principles.

Windows 10 UWP games arriving on Xbox One this year

Prophets of doom who bemoaned Microsoft's nefarious plans to unify its two gaming platforms was just given some ammo by no less than Microsoft itself.

Outlook on mobile is now 2 years old, add-ins added

Outlook on mobile is now 2 years old, add-ins added

Microsoft Outlook is popular (or notorious) among desktop users back when Personal Information Management suites, or PIM for short, were the hottest thing in software. That shifted a bit during the mobile revolution but now Microsoft is trying to make up for lost time. While still just a fraction of its full self, Outlook mobile is gaining what Microsoft calls add-ins that turn Outlook on your smartphone or tablet into more than just an e-mail app. And just in time, too, for the app’s second year on mobile.

This is Microsoft’s wish-list for 2017 Windows PCs

This is Microsoft’s wish-list for 2017 Windows PCs

Microsoft is plotting a big Windows 10 push for 2017, and in order for it to succeed, the company will need the help of its OEM and ODM partners. A big part of this seems to be convincing consumers to upgrade to a more modern PC that offers support for Windows 10 features that may not be available in older machines. At its WinHEC 2016 conference in Shenzen last December, Microsoft outlined its vision for the modern PC, and it just recently made the video of that presentation available online.

Microsoft Edge browser’s upcoming features teased

Microsoft Edge browser’s upcoming features teased

Microsoft desperately needs to make people forget about its ugly past in the web browser market. That’s why it’s putting its marketing engine hard at work to promote the hell out of the new and fancy Microsoft Edge web browser. If you do ignore compatibility with sites that still need the ancient Internet Explorer, Edge does offer a more modern and, perhaps more importantly, cleaner browsing experience. And it’s about to get even better in the Windows 10 Creators Update! Or at least that’s the tune Microsoft is singing its latest teaser for its fledgling browser.

Microsoft “Windows Cloud” might be Windows RT in disguise

Microsoft “Windows Cloud” might be Windows RT in disguise

Few Windows versions have earned the hatred of even Microsoft’s staunchest fans. That list includes Windows ME, Windows Vista, and, more recently, Windows RT. And yet it seems that Microsoft isn’t ready to give up on the “RT” idea just yet. Microsoft is allegedly preparing a new version of Windows, based on Windows 10, of course, and it’s calling it “Windows Cloud”. According to sources, however, it has absolutely nothing to do with Microsoft’s cloud products. Instead, it sounds pretty much like Windows RT, sans the now infamous name.
