Watch live as Microsoft reveals its vision of the future at Build 2014

Watch live as Microsoft reveals its vision of the future at Build 2014

Microsoft finally realized some time ago that it had to make some serious changes if it hoped to continue thriving in a world that had begun to evolve years earlier toward “mobile first.” Windows Phone, Windows 8 and Windows RT were the company’s first huge steps toward the future, and Microsoft definitely had the right idea. Consumers and enterprise users weren’t sold on the new “Metro” interface that Microsoft forced upon them, however, and PC sales have been plummeting as a result. To make matters worse, Windows Phone’s share of global phone shipments remains in the low single digits each quarter.

At its annual Build developer conference that kicks off in mere moments, Microsoft will finally show the world how it plans to right the ship and forge ahead in the “post-PC era.” More →

We’ll be live from the new HTC One press conference today at 11:00AM!

Is it the All New HTC One? Is it the HTC One M8? Is the HTC One 2014 edition? Is it just the “HTC One” again? The name of HTC’s upcoming new flagship smartphone is just about the only thing we don’t know about the device at this point, but the last few tidbits will finally be revealed later today when HTC’s big press conference gets underway. Thanks to dozens upon dozens of rumors, leaks, photos and even a 14-minute hands-on video review of the new One, we know just about everything there is to know about HTC’s new flagship phone. The phone looks fantastic so far, but we won’t know for sure until we hear everything straight from the horse’s mouth.

Bookmark this link, which will go live shortly before the event starts later this morning, and make sure to head there for our live coverage and streaming video of HTC’s press conference! Coverage will begin just before 11:00 a.m. EDT / 8:00 a.m. PST.

Here’s how to watch live as Nokia unveils its first (and last?) Android phone

Nokia and Android. Android and Nokia. Smartphone enthusiasts have wondered for quite some time what Android would be like on one of Nokia’s signature handsets. While most were likely hoping for Android on a high-end Nokia phone, the mystery will soon be over. We’ll never know what Nokia’s current situation would be if Samsung hadn’t scared Nokia CEO Stephen Elop away from Android. But now, for the first time ever, we’ll at least know what an Android phone from Nokia is like. More →

Apple’s big iPad event is about to start – here’s how to watch it live

Apple remained silent for most of 2013 and industry watchers panicked as the months rolled by with no major product launches. Well, when it rains it pours. Apple launched the brand new flagship iPhone 5s and the sort-of-new iPhone 5c almost exactly one month ago, and opening-weekend sales absolutely smashed Apple’s earlier iPhone sales records. Now, it’s time for the next few pieces of Apple’s 2013-2014 product puzzle to fall into place. More →

Microsoft is live-streaming today’s Build keynote – here’s how to watch

Microsoft made some mistakes with Windows 8. The software, which was the first major step toward realizing Microsoft’s vision of a future where PC and tablet interfaces merge, was not well received by consumers or businesses. PC sales have slowed even more as a result, but Microsoft has shown that it is willing to take a few steps back by undoing some damage with its upcoming Windows 8.1 update. The Start button is coming back, though it likely won’t satisfy the horde of users wishing Microsoft would bring back its old Windows Start menu, and several other changes are in store as well. Microsoft’s annual Build conference kicks off with its customary keynote where Microsoft will focus on Windows 8.1 and more, and video of this year’s event will be streamed live on Microsoft’s Channel 9 site. The show begins at 12:00 p.m. EDT, 9:00 a.m. PDT, and a link to the live stream can be found below in the source section.

Samsung Galaxy Ativ Event Live Stream

Samsung has been announcing new smartphones over the past few weeks like it’s going out of style. The Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy S4 Zoom, Galaxy S4 Active and other handsets have all debuted recently, and Samsung is expected to have them all on hand during Thursday’s press conference — along with a few surprises. While some find it confusing, unveiling more than a half-dozen versions of the Galaxy S4 might be a smart play when it comes time to talk numbers; just as Apple lumps all of its iPhone models into one total sales figure, Samsung will be able to include all of these Galaxy S4 versions in a single shipment figure now that sales of the flagship model seem to be slowing. A wide variety of options has always been part of Samsung’s game plan though, and now we get to see exactly what the company has in store for us this summer. Samsung’s “Galaxy & Ativ” event is scheduled to kick off at 2:00 p.m. EDT, 11:00 a.m. PDT, and live streaming video of the press conference can be viewed below. More →

Apple’s WWDC keynote now underway: Tim Cook starts with state of the Apple union

Apple might not be the darling of Wall Street that it once was, but Apple fans and mobile developers are just as enthusiastic as ever. Tickets for WWDC 2013 sold out in under 3 minutes — it took just 71 seconds, in fact — and the line to get into the Moscone Center in San Francisco this morning stretched as far as the eye could see. Apple’s opening keynote is finally now underway, and CEO Tim Cook started things off by noting that Apple now has more than 6 million registered developers and 1.5 million of them have registered in the past year alone.
