Microsoft may once again be offering an online store for users in India. Back in 2012, hackers accessed microsoftstore.co.in and stole usernames and passwords for of people who had made purchases from the online store.

Microsoft this morning pushed out an update for the Extras + Info system app found on Nokia Lumia smartphones. The Extras + Info area is where users can find out what firmware version they are currently on, like Lumia Black, Lumia Cyan, or Lumia Denim.

Today's update arrives without a changelog; however it is safe to surmise that it is laying the groundwork for the forthcoming Lumia Denim update for those still on Cyan. In fact, many people have tipped us after updating to tell they now have the Lumia Denim update.

This claim of having Lumia Denim though is false.

Here is your first look at Halo: Spartan Strike

We had a few details about the upcoming game Halo: Spartan Strike on Wednesday. Today, we have all the things you need to know. The Halo top-down shooter is coming to Windows, Windows Phone, and Steam on December 12th, 2014 for $5.99. You can buy it once for both Windows and Windows Phone, but the Steam version is a separate purchase.

This is a chapter in the "Halo" universe, which will take you through 30 challenging missions through jungles, cities and more. I spent a few minutes with some of the levels on the Surface Pro 3 and the Lumia 930. I was impressed, but I do share some of your concerns about the controls that stemmed from the previous version, Halo: Spartan Assault.

As people continue to use the Windows 10 Technical Preview, they are identifying subtle differences between it and its predecessor. One such feature that seems to be a double-edged sword is the Home folder in the File Explorer. When clicked, the Home folder displays a list of your File Explorer Favorites, folders that you frequent, and your recently-accessed files. It is the last two that have people questioning whether the Home folder is a good or bad idea.

Taking place within a fantasy version of Victorian England, players investigate a series of mysterious disappearances.
