The documentary will reveal the tremendous work that went into recreating the classic original Xbox game Halo 2 on the new Xbox One console.

US Prepaid Carriers Buyer's Guide

US Prepaid Carriers Buyer's Guide

Sponsored by MetroPCS

With kids back in school and budgets tight, prepaid carriers are often the way to go for anyone with a smartphone. Instead of paying your monthly bill after having used your wireless service, you pay beforehand for a set bucket of data.

There are compromises to be made when signing up for a prepaid carrier, but for the most part, the added flexibility makes it all worth while. Conditions and service plans vary wildly across providers, but we're going to sort through the big ones and hopefully point you in the right direction.

Rogers flips the switch on LTE-Advanced in 12 markets

45

It looks like things are about to speed up for our friends in the North—on Rogers at least. The Canadian carrier announced today that it has flipped the switch on LTE-Advanced in several markets throughout the country. Perhaps even better, Rogers is doing all of this on the 700 MHz spectrum, which should allow for greater penetration inside of buildings.

OneRoom, a minimalistic approach to photo editing for Windows Phone

33

No argument here. We have a ton of photo editors available in the Windows Phone Store. Which one is best? Your guess is as good as mine and one of the latest offerings hoping to catch your eye is OneRoom.

What sets OneRoom apart from the cornucopia of photo editors already available in the Windows Phone Store? You do have editing presets that helps you edit photos quickly and the app can handle images up to 38MP in size. The app is also minimalistic in design that hopes to make the editing flow more user friendly.

In just tinkering with OneRoom for a short time, it does have a bit of appeal but may struggle to knock off the more popular editors such as Photoshop Express, Fhotoroom or Fantasia Painter due to a few missing features. Still, if you are looking for another photo editor to add to your Windows Phone Library or are still searching for that one editor that fits your tastes bests, OneRoom is worth a try.

Mildly interesting: Windows 10 is really just Windows 9 underneath

174

On September 30, 2014, Microsoft finally revealed to the world their next version of Windows. Speculation about the name had been ongoing for months, especially with the known internal name of 'Threshold' being used widely in the press. Would Microsoft call it just Windows? What about Windows One or the more traditional Windows 9?

Microsoft threw everyone a curve ball by announcing the name as jumping from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. No official reason is known, although the most obvious is to make Windows 10 seem like a big deal as an update.

Samsung ATIV S getting Windows Phone 8.1 Update? Kind of

108

Starting about ten days ago, reports that Samsung was pushing out Windows Phone 8.1 Update for ATIV S users began circulating the 'nets. We have our own ATIV S here in the house, which is an unbranded UK release, and were not able to get any such update. Instead, we are stuck on Windows Phone 8.0 GDR3 (Build 10517; Firmware 2424.13.10.1).

As it turns out, a very select few ATIV S users are getting Windows Phone 8.1 Update (Build 14157; Firmware 2424.14.9.3), which is splendid news. The bad news is it is isolated to specific regions like Austria and maybe Hong Kong.

Samsung ATIV S devices released through carriers and most other areas are not seeing the update yet, although obviously this can change. Let me try and explain and give you the full story.
