Nadella met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, and Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, promising support for Modi's Digital India initiative to modernize that country's infrastructure.

Zubie for Windows Phone, a simple way to keep tabs on your vehicle

32

The other day we mentioned that Zubie had released their mobile app to the Windows Phone Store. What is Zubie you ask? Zubie is a plug-in module for your vehicle that will locate your vehicle, log its movements, and monitor critical engine components.

The module will transmit all this information to your Zubie account where you can check in on things through a website portal or the Zubie Windows Phone app. The app is free, but the module runs about $100 and comes with a year's service. The service sparked our curiosity and after using Zubie for the past week, it comes across as a useful tool for those looking to monitor their vehicles closer.

Here's a list of even more phones and countries that got the Lumia Denim update

580

Last week, Microsoft started rolling out the long awaited Lumia Denim update to its Lumia Windows Phone devices in various territories around the world. At the time, we listed the countries, devices and wireless carriers that were rolling out that update in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East. We also mentioned that the Demin update had started to roll out to the Verizon Wireless Lumia 822 and 928 in the US.

It's been several days since that first firmware rollout so we decided to check Microsoft's support pages to see if there were any additional countries, phones and carriers that were receiving the Lumia Denim update. Sure enough, there have been some changes to that list so we have combed through it and posted all the new Denim listings.
