Microsoft Lumia 640 review

Microsoft is steadily getting its handle on its device portfolio after the Nokia acquisition. And it is starting at the bottom and gradually working its way up with the likes of the Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532 and the Lumia 535.

Then we got to Mobile World Congress. Microsoft had taken over the space once inhabited by Nokia and used it to deliver a keynote very early on the first morning of the show. Among the Windows 10 talk was the introduction of the Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL.

Both another step up on the ladder from those that came before, and taking it up to around half-dozen smartphones to carry the Microsoft logo. The Lumia 640 has big shoes to fill, coming in as a replacement for the very popular Lumia 630/635. Does it do a good job?

That's what we're here to find out.

Hands-on with 6discover for Windows Phone

86

Windows Phone users do not have an official Snapchat application, but 6discover, the latest app from Rudy Huyn, offers one of the major features. You won't be able to create, view, or share snaps with friends. You also won't be able to use 6discover to chat or create stories. You use 6discover for Snapchat's Discover section, which was introduced by the company earlier this year. It lets you see articles, photos and videos from different publications such as CNN, Food Network, Vice, Bleacher Report, and National Geographic.

Check out our hands-on video to see 6discover in action.

The Witcher 3 Xbox One digital copy is cheaper, unlocks early, and is available for pre-order [Updated]

31

[Update] Looks like the Game + Expansion Pass Bundle is receiving that same 10% discount. The expansion pass will include both expansion packs for the game that will add 30+ hours of gameplay to the existing game. Both packs are launching later this year. The Game + Expansion Pass bundle will normally set you back $84.99, but thanks to that 10% digital discount you can grab it from the store for $76.49.

Yesterday, CD Projekt Red announced that The Witcher 3 went gold just in time for its May 19 release next month. Now, the game has now become available for pre-order and pre-download for the Xbox One. However, that's not the biggest news coming out today.

Snapchat's lawyers send threatening letter to Huyn over new 6discover app

410

Well, that did not take long. Snapchat's legal team has sent developer Rudy Huyn a letter accusing him of "violation of federal and state law" for reproducing the Snapchat "Discover" content. The missive comes just 24-hours after the release of 6discover, a new, free app that pulls the Snapchat Discover content and bypassing Snapchat's official app feature.

The issue appears to be about money, ultimately. Discover is a way for companies to produce and distribute content through Snapchat. Companies like Comedy Central, Vice, and CNN pay Snapchat for this privilege, in essence making it an advertising platform.
