Well isn't this nice. Microsoft is giving us all a digital fireplace to curl up next to this holiday season through the Bing homepage. It flickers just like the real thing. It's super easy to enable, too. Head on into the lower right hand corner of the page and look for the little circle icon. Click that and you'll find the fireplace symbol. Then grab a good book and a hot beverage.

Over the weekend, Windows Phone fan Luke Rodriguez decided to take it upon himself to demonstrate some of the new Lumia Denim Camera improvements on his Nokia Lumia 930. For many of us, we are still waiting for the update for Lumia Denim to hit along with the new Camera app. However, for those who are lucky enough to have both a PureView Lumia and Denim proper, the wait appears to be worth it.

The video by Rodriguez is quite thorough coming in just over five minutes in length. The camera app is shown launching along with some of the new menu features like Rich Capture, Lumia Moments, and even some 4K video samples towards the end, which look exquisite.
