I guess if you’re calling your game The Machine, then you best back it up with some solid gameplay mechanics. Luckily the developers of this new game have. This is a platform game with the idea being to move an ink droplet through a machine. Things get tricky, as jumping is the only option you have to move forward —...

Well that’s a relief. Microsoft, it seemed, stood by its decision not to release its latest Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 firmware on older hardware, making this version exclusive to new handsets. Handsets like on which it launched, the Lumia 640 and 640 XL. At least that was the general impression. But it now appears...

Time for one of those regular Bing updates! Redmond has rolled out a new Bing Image Search refresh, providing the service with some subtle layout improvements and a few useful features.

Had to come to this, but there’s actually more to the story. Yes, Kinect for Windows will no longer be manufactured, but manufactured specifically for the PC is the point here. Microsoft instead wants to focus on the console version of the hardware from now on. As the announcement reveals, the company witnessed...

Or what is actually termed as the final round. More depressing news, but we just had the latest round of Microsoft layoffs with the company releasing hundreds of employees across the globe. These are, of course, part of the 18,000 or so job cuts that were announced last year. Back when Microsoft completed the takeover...

Not again! You know what would be really great is if all these big name developers that are discontinuing their Windows Phone apps get back with their Windows 10 solutions. Universal, streamlined, feature rich applications for Microsoft’s upcoming new operating system. That may yet happen. But for the time being we...

At least, according to unofficial sources. Redmond has not exactly commented on the production of Microsoft Band, or the number that was produced in the first batch.
