If you saw a video from a YouTube gamer praising the Xbox One during its launch in 2013, that could have been the result of a marketing campaign that failed to disclose itself upfront to customers. The Federal Trade Commission has now entered into a settlement with the company in charge of that campaign, Machinima, claiming that it engaged in deceptive conduct.

The Microsoft Messaging app for Windows 10 Mobile has a new version that's available to download for people who have the preview version of the operating system installed on their phones. However, there's no word on what's new, improved or fixed in this update.
Today appears to be the day that apps that have been neglected on the Windows Phone platform are suddenly getting new updates. The Instagram BETA got a new version after well over a year, and now the official BBC iPlayer app for Windows Phone has been updated as well.
Microsoft has already announced that Windows 10 Mobile will include support for Continuum, which will allow phones with the operating system to be used on a much bigger display, like a big PC monitor or TV. A new, but still unconfirmed, report claims that Microsoft's Continuum dock for Windows 10 Mobile will contain some different ports to connect to a larger screen.
ASUS dedicated a solid portion of its IFA 2015 stage time to Republic of Gamers, its gaming arm with some exciting hardware for those who wish to power through AAA titles. The company today announced a refresh to the G751 gaming laptop. Say hello to the new G752.
Serious gamers take their gear seriously, and the new ASUS ROG Swift PG348Q monitor is going to seriously appeal to a lot of them. This display is many things, including being enormous, curved, and beautifully-crafted especially for the gaming crowd.
Anybody who's tried gaming with a laptop knows the biggest problem they face: heat dissipation from a blazing-hot processor, GPU, and RAM. ASUS thinks they have a solution for that with the ROG GX700: a combination of high-powered gaming laptop with a crazy liquid cooling dock. Let's take a look.
ASUS's Republic of Gamers brand is more than just their gamer-focused products; it's also a community of gamers and builders that create some truly awesome rigs.
You can't buy either of these computers, but you can dream about putting together your own. These ROG ASUS gaming PCs feature top-of-the-line hardware inside, but it's the design itself that really piques our interest. Honestly, we'd kill to have either on our desk (just like we wouldn't mind having any of the custom boxes ASUS showed at Computex earlier this year). There's not much that we can really say about these rigs that wouldn't be better served by just showing you these rigs. So that's exactly what we're going to do.
Fast Side of the Moon is an online Windows Phone game where you race up to twenty players across space-based racecourses. Fast Side of the Moon offers both online, multiplayer games and an offline single player game.
Graphics are nicely drawn up, the racecourses challenging, but the game is plagued by frustrating steering controls. The game has potential but needs a little work under the hood to give players a fighting chance at victory.
The Revo Build is one of Acer's latest desktop PCs, but this particular product has quite the twist. Acer has made it so you'll be able to add and subtract blocks from the PC depending on what you require, be it increased amounts of storage or even a wireless charging pad.
Intex Technologies, the second largest smartphone maker in India, has announced its association with Microsoft to become the first Android smartphone brand in India to pre-install and provide OneDrive cloud storage.

ASUS today announced the VivoStick PC, a small stick PC that is essentially a fully capable Windows 10 desktop computer packaged into a drive the same size as a large Wi-Fi dongle. We're looking at Bluetooth 4, 2GB of RAM, two USB ports, an audio jack and 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity. While it won't be the most powerful PC you purchase, the design is solid and you'll be able to carry it in your pocket.
Windows 10 may already be used by over 5% of all PCs worldwide, but the hardcore PC gaming community has apparently taken to Microsoft's latest OS on an even bigger scale. Just over a month after its launch, over 17% of the tens of millions of PC gamers who use Valve's Steam service are already using Windows 10.
A big focus of Acer's IFA 2015 showcase is its new Predator lineup, the company's dedicated gaming brand. While on one hand they're announcing some low-end Windows 10 Mobile phones, on the other they're throwing these out in to the world. The new Predator 15 and 17. And they're packing some heat.
Intel's new Skylake chips are going to be everywhere at IFA and these two gaming focused machines are no exception.
Acer had teased that its Predator gaming line would be the focus of its IFA event and it hasn't disappointed. Alongside laptops and desktops, the lineup is completed by the Z35 and XB Series gaming monitors that pack NVIDIA G-SYNC technology and options including 4K and Ultrawide curved screens.
We last saw a Predator monitor from Acer at Computex a few months back, and with these new ones the company is continuing to deliver where it matters while still offering a design that stands out.
Acer came back to the Windows Phone family at Mobile World Congress and shows continued support with its first Windows 10 Mobile releases.
Anyone looking for a 'flagship' class smartphone will have to continue waiting, as the new Liquid M320 and M330 aren't going to scratch that itch. They're a pair of budget-oriented phones targeted at the lower end of the market.
Acer not only unveiled a bunch of Predator and gaming-related announcements at IFA, but the company also refreshed and announced some new hardware too. From the Acer R 13 convertible notebook being refreshed to the new Aspire U5-710 all-in-one-desktops with latest Intel processors, the company is clearly upping its game when it comes to offering multiple pieces of kit for different customers.
Acer today announced the Jade Primo smartphone at IFA. The handset runs Windows 10 Mobile and works seamlessly with Continuum, enabling you to take your work (and desktop environment) with you as you leave the office.
