Microsoft extends Security Essentials support to 2015, but is still ending XP updates this April

62

There has been a bit of confusion for Windows XP users (yes, they still exist) over whether or not they would be able to obtain antivirus support after July 2015. Let us take a few moments to talk about what antivirus support you won’t have after the 2015 date, but what might still be available. In addition, take a second to learn why you will still be at risk after this April even if you choose to continue using a third party service's security solution.

#CESlive Round-up — all you need to know from CES 2014

9

What a show, #CESlive. The 2014 edition of the International CES was just as wild and crazy as we'd expected, and our coverage was more wild and crazy than we'd ever done before. From curved UHD TVs and OLED displays to smartwatches and smartphones, the millions of square feet that comprised the show floor of CES 2014 was full of the insane, the amazing, and the just plain cool. Up here you'll find our CES wrap-up video, and down below you'll find the very best of all our coverage from #CESlive!

Mush, Skateboard Party, Nightmares from the Deep, and more Windows Phone Red Stripe Deals

25

Since we didn’t get a new Xbox game for Windows Phone this week (though I finally worked through Temple Run 2), the Xbox Red Stripe Deal must once again sustain Achievement-minded Windows Phone gamers. This week’s deal title Mush from Angry Mango has been on sale thrice before, most recently in April of last year. But Mush is still a charming exclusive that somehow never escaped to iOS like most tend to do. Might as well pick it up for a buck if you haven’t already.

The non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals offer some fine game and app discounts as well. Artifex Mundi’s beautiful hidden-object adventure game Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart gets knocked down to $1.49, while graphically intense Skateboard Party 2 from Ratrod Studio and Kristanix Studio’s casual Fantastic Farm come in at 99 cents each. Meanwhile, non-game MusicStation from Raphaël Ruis is on sale for $2.99 and RaveIT Pro for 99 cents.

Our ultimate (and final) CES 2014 video is a must-see

19

CES 2014 is but a memory, having wrapped up nearly a week ago. But that doesn’t mean we can’t re-live some of our greatest moments. Hence, our #CESLive wrap up video, which will hopefully convey how massive this co-project was between Mobile Nations and Geek Beat. That’s why we compressed it into a spritely 2 minutes and 33 seconds, all done in that super cool time-lapse style.

We had 80 guests take to the stage over the course of 4 days, which we brought back to you LIVE. On top of that, the entire Mobile Nations team across Android Central, CrackBerry, iMore, Windows Phone Central and Smartwatch Fans were blogging like crazy to bring you the stories from the show as they happened.

It was awesome. It was ridiculous. And we can’t wait to do it again next year. Missed any of our coverage? Head here to see it all:

Music Drop, transferring tunes to your Windows Phone

68

Music Drop is an easy way to send music files to your Windows Phone 8 device from your PC without the need for cables.  Music Drop creates a network connection between your PC and Windows Phone 8 device with a simple interface that allows you to pick and choose which music files to plant on your phone.

There’s really not much more to Music Drop and while there is some room for improvement, it does a nice job of things as is.

Poll: Are you seeing more random resets after installing Nokia App Folder?

482

Last Thursday Nokia had a very, very busy day. Not only did they start rolling out the Lumia Black update, but they introduced folders to Windows Phone via their App Folders application. It was received with mix results, mostly because it’s more or less a shortcut to apps and settings versus a native folder solution. Either way, we’re starting to get reports of random resets after users installed the app. Are you among them?

Prepare to play Titanfall in style with limited edition Xbox One controller [Updated]

66

For gamers who love buying gadgets and technology, console launches represent a fun time to stock up on not only a new system but also a host of accessories for that system. If you care about local multiplayer, you’re definitely going to need an extra controller or three. Problem is: the controllers available at launch are always the same color. By the time cool colors come along, many of us already own all the controllers we need.

Luckily Xbox One owners don’t have to wait too terribly long for a different controller style to arrive. When Respawn and Electronic Arts' highly anticipated Titanfall launches on March 11 in North America and March 13 in Europe, a special limited edition controller will pop up right along with it. It certainly looks different from the standard black model! Update: Amazon preorder link after the break!
