Windows XP is enjoying a very strong life after death

When Windows 8 launched in 2012, Microsoft struggled to convince users that they should make the switch. The new UI was unfamiliar and unresponsive, the critical reaction was skeptical at best and most importantly, there wasn’t really anything wrong with Windows 7. In fact, two years later, Windows 7 still has an enormous lead over Windows 8, but with the latest software update, Microsoft has finally started turning users around on the new OS. More →

Explore Destiny’s incredible virtual worlds using a cool new Google Maps-style tool

There are several notable game releases this month, such as Disney Infinity 2.0 and Hyrule Warriors, but none have received more buzz than Bungie’s massively multiplayer first-person shooter, Destiny. Activision, the game’s publisher, has spared no expense when it comes to marketing Destiny — a stroll through Times Square might be the most prominent evidence of this. Now Destiny is taking a page from Google Maps for a unique experiment that will allow fans to explore the worlds of Destiny before it launches. More →

Here are all the reasons why Apple might have rejected your app

Although the App Store is occasionally subjected to a flood of ridiculous clones, Apple is notorious for its strict guidelines for reviewing apps before they can be put up for sale. It’s not uncommon for noted app developers with multiple successful releases on the App Store to have to resubmit an update after Apple finds a bug or something objectionable within the app. In order to make the process easier for developers in the future, Apple has added a page to its developer website for the express purpose of letting developers know why their apps are being rejected.

Here’s a great Galaxy Note 4 feature that might be coming to future iPhones

Apple is giving both of its operating systems major facelifts this fall with iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, but after 44 new patents were granted to the company on Tuesday, it’s clear that these updates are only the beginning. Patently Apple is focusing on a few of the most significant patents, starting with moving radial menus, a feature found on Samsung’s Galaxy Note line of phablets. More →

The success of the PlayStation 4 in the international market has been well-documented, but that doesn’t mean Sony’s latest home console is without its own unique flaws. In our review last fall, we noted that the app stream on the dashboard was going to become problematic as the PS4’s library began to expand, yet Sony still hasn’t found a way to address the issue in any of its recent updates. In the meantime, the company plans to distract us with dashboard themes. More →

One of the most anticipated next-gen titles of the holiday season is already out… but just not on the platforms we want it.

This iPhone case makes it easier than ever for thieves to steal your ATM PIN

In light of this weekend’s massive celebrity photo leak, mobile security is bound to be a major topic of discussion in the weeks to come. How can we keep our private data safe if actors and actresses whose lives often revolve around keeping things private are this vulnerable? With the amount of information we store on our phones, in our email, in cloud storage, we’re always going to be at risk, but there are ways that hackers can get private data from us without accessing any of our devices.

The Xbox One update you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have been incredibly successful up to this point, but there’s no question that the new consoles would have benefitted greatly from a little more time in development before launch. By lacking a few key features, both consoles felt unfinished, but Microsoft has been hard at work getting the Xbox One up to speed. The latest update might be the most significant one yet. More →
