As a consolation for interested Band users, Microsoft also issued a $10 gift code for a $50 or more Microsoft Store purchase in the email for your hardship in locating a Band.

T-Mobile agrees to display correct speed test results for throttled customers

12

T-Mobile took a big step forward today in the realm of transparency over customer data allotments and throttling. A statement released by the FCC indicates that T-Mobile will begin providing a link to a speed test that will provide accurate results for users who have already been throttled for the month, rather than displaying potential network speeds as it currently does. In addition, the magenta carrier said it would be clearer about data throttling in its text alerts once users have gone over their high speed data cap for the month.

Xbox One: Year One review – How is Microsoft's new console doing one year later?

72

On November 22, 2013 the Xbox One launched in the US and several other territories. The first new console from Microsoft in 8 years, the One was long overdue. But at launch, the Xbox One faced an uphill battle due to a series of PR blunders, poor pre-leadership from former Xbox chief Don Mattrick (who tellingly departed for Zynga in July that year), and a $100 price disadvantage against its competitor the Playstation 4.

In our comprehensive launch review, I praised the Xbox One as a games and entertainment machine, but criticized its underdeveloped user interface, social features, and other major and minor failings. Luckily, Microsoft has worked hard under new Xbox head Phil Spencer's leadership to improve the Xbox One in the first post-launch year. Now we're back with another massive review that looks at the console's many strides and areas that continue to need improvement.
