Windows 10 review: The first 24 hours

When I first upgraded to Windows 7 back in 2009, I was shocked. Microsoft had somehow recovered from the mediocrity of Windows Vista and built an operating system that felt like the natural progression from Windows XP. It was clean, it ran better and most importantly, it didn’t try to fix what wasn’t broken.

Then Windows 8 happened.

I was smart/fortunate enough to avoid Windows 8 altogether, but as a fan of new technology, I couldn’t help but feel a little left out. I wanted the latest and greatest, and now, nearly three years later, it has arrived in the form of Windows 10.

Every free Xbox One and Xbox 360 game you can download in August

Last month, Microsoft improved its Games with Gold program dramatically by giving Xbox One owners an additional free game to download every month.

Amazon Spying Social Media Profiles

We also naturally assume that the reviews we’re reading are legitimate, which means Amazon needs to have some process to vet reviewers. Unfortunately, that process appears to have backfired in the case of indie writer Imy Santiago. More →

James already made one appearance on the silver screen this year in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, but this new partnership could bring the athlete into our theaters and our living rooms far more often. And even though the studio wasn’t willing to share details about any specific projects in development, we think we know of at least one.
