A few weeks ago, in a verbose and engineering laden press event Apple announced their new MacBook. Not quite the MacBook Air nor MacBook Pro, the MacBook is Apple's premium, ultralight laptop competitor. While the design and the thinness were praised, the single USB Type-C port was greeted mostly with jeers, especially for a device that starts at $1,299.

Despite Apple's self-congratulatory accolades on making the new MacBook, Samsung announced a similar device back in January with little to no fanfare. The new ATIV Book 9 (2015) was the answer to Apple's MacBook before it was even announced months later.

The ATIV Book 9 (2015) is already available to purchase, and we managed to get our hands on one. Here are the ways that it is better than Apple's MacBook.

T-Mobile has already shown off their version of the Lumia 640 in video, but appearing on the site brings it one step closer to being available for purchase. Microsoft announced the Lumia 640 back at Mobile World Congress. Shortly after the original announcement T-Mobile shared that they would be carrying the device, but no specific launch date was given. The Lumia 640 now appears on T-Mobile's website listed as 'Coming Soon', but still no sign of pricing.

Weekly photo contest: Cars

After a brief hiatus thanks to events (and illness), the weekly photo contest is back and in its new weekend slot. We've decided to move it from a weekday when there's potentially a lot of news and other things going on to a more relaxed slot on a Sunday evening. Aside from a new day, nothing else is changing, so let's get to it!

This weeks contest is something close to my heart: cars. Along with tech, cars are my other major passion in life and recently I had the opportunity to finally visit the world famous Geneva Motor Show. Some 2 weeks later I'm still trawling through all the photos but it gave me some great inspiration for this weeks contest. The shot up top is from my Lumia 830, is completely unedited and is one of my favorites from the show.

But now it's over to you to get creative! But first, let's find out who won the last contest...

The new HTC One M9 gets reviewed

HTC's last flagship device, the One M8, is something we're quite fond of. Despite seeing a limited launch and coming after the Android version had already hit the market, it was a great example of a high-end Windows Phone.

Now, HTC is back. The One M9 has so far seen no mention of a Windows Phone version, but until someone at HTC flat out says it's not happening, we'll live in hope. And our pals at Android Central have just reviewed it.

A few weeks ago, Chase seemed to have taken a less-extreme position than Bank of America over its discontinuation of their banking app, announced in January. The massive bank told users that they could continue using the app 'until further notice'.

The implication at the time (and this all it was) was that if you had the Chase banking app on your phone it would still work into the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, this is not the case. According to reader reports, the app is completely non-functional as of today.

Microsoft will update the price tier values for Windows Store during the week of April 13, 2015. Windows Store supports 96 tiers that publishers can use to price paid apps and in-app products. These price tier values are updated periodically to maintain consistency across currencies, accounting for changes in foreign exchange rates, taxes, and other geographic pricing considerations. The information comes through an email Microsoft has sent out to developers, alerting them of the change.

Beginning April 13, the price tier values will be updated and while the US Dollar (USD) price in each tier will remain the same, the prices in all other currencies adjusted relative to the USD price.
