Posted 4 days ago ago at Win Super Site with 3 recent echos

In less than two weeks, Microsoft will begin revealing information about the Windows Technical Preview, the first pre release look at the next version of Windows. The actual Preview won't be out until October, I'm told. But there no reason to wait: Here what you're going to see. Obviously, a lot of information about the Windows Technical Preview has leaked already. But information I believe to be truly new is bolded below so you can find it more easily. Microsoft is bringing back the...

Posted 14 days ago ago at Win Super Site with 1 recent echos

If you're an Xbox fan who felt jilted by Microsoft decision last year to limit the launch of its new console to just a handful of markets, take heart: This month, Xbox One will launch in 29 additional markets, just in time for the crucial second holiday games wave. You may recall that Microsoft in 2013 decided to dramatically cut back on the number of markets in which it would launch Xbox One in 2014, stating at the time that it would expand the reach of the console in 2014.

Windows Technical Preview to arrive early October, not September 30th

Posted 3 days ago ago at WinBeta with 1 recent echos

Contrary to popular belief, Microsoft will not be releasing a public Technical Preview at its September 30th event. According to my sources, Microsoft will allow the press first dibs on the new bits or at least give them a very detailed look, and then release to the public a few days later for testing. The September 30th event is designed to explain what coming in Windows for Enterprises, and generally has nothing to do with consumers. The build that will be issued to the public in October will...

Posted 3 days ago ago at Neowin with 1 recent echos

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced that they would be spending $2.5 billion to acquire the studio behind the popular game, Minecraft. The game, which has millions of players and is like a modern version of Lego, cannot be played on Windows Phone. But, that is all about to change, thanks to PhilSpencer saying on Twitter that they will be bringing the popular game to their mobile platform. It really shouldn't come as a major surprise considering that the game is already on the company...

How the next version of IE, codenamed 'Spartan,' might support extensions

Posted 7 days ago ago at All About Microsoft with 1 recent echos

My sources say that the codename for this next IE release is Spartan. One of my contacts caught a glimpse of a zSpartan app that can be seen in one of the leaked Threshold screen shots from ComputerBase and WinFuture. Ive embedded that screen shot in this post. zSpartan is visible in the list of programs on the Start Menu, just below the word Video. Before Microsoft went public about its Cortana personal digital assistant for Windows Phone, there also were similar sightings of a zCortana app....
