So, today's the day. It's been a long time coming for a lot of people, but at 9 a.m. PT Microsoft will kick off proceedings and start talking about what's next for Windows 10. That could mean desktop, it could mean phones, it could mean tablets, Xbox, Windows gaming, literally anything.

Solid leaks have been minimal and Windows 10 has been one of the tech industry's better guarded secrets of recent times. And we like that, there are too many events where we're already too 'in-the-know' about what's going to happen before it happens. Today has the chance to blow our minds completely. So, what do you want to see the most?

Frederic - Evil Strikes Back is a sequel installment to the original Windows Phone game Frederic. The game has the legendary composer Frederic Chopin being resurrected from the grave to prove that his music can still be a chart topper.

Evil Strikes Back picks up where the original left off with Frederic facing a host of opponents in musical duels. The game does have a Guitar Hero feel about it but instead of battling it out on a 6 String, you are armed with a piano keyboard.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones, Frederic - Evil Strikes Back is normally priced at $4.99. However, as this week's myAppFree deal you can pick up the Windows Phone game free!

While a little late for Christmas miracles, we'll take it when it comes when it concerns Twitter for Windows Phone updates. That's what's happening today and it's actually a pretty useful update, too. Despite no new changelog in the Windows Phone Store, it looks like the headline new features are People Hub integration, sharing support for web links from Internet Explorer and some nifty new Cortana support for tweeting without the typing.

Chase Bank plans to remove its Chase Mobile app from the Windows Phone Store on January 26, according to a number of reports sent to us today by Windows Central readers.

The first version of the Chase Mobile app launched for Windows Phone devices in September 2012 and allows Chase Bank customers to monitor their accounts, pay bills and more. The app was later updated to run on Windows Phone 8.1 devices. The app was last updated in August 2014.

Update: Microsoft clarified in a statement to The Guardian that none of Mojang's servers were compromised, meaning that the leaked passwords and usernames were the result of an unrelated hack.

"We can confirm that no Mojang.net service was compromised and that normal industry procedures for dealing with situations like this were put in place to reset passwords for the small number of affected accounts."

"When we discover lists of gamertags, usernames and passwords posted online, we take immediate action to protect our customers by reviewing for valid credentials and resetting account access when necessary."

Microsoft's statements will no doubt reassure users concerned about the safety of their accounts.
