Windows Central has recently rolled out an aggressive Twitch livestreaming schedule. Tuesdays we play The Witcher 2, Wednesdays we play various Xbox One games, Thursdays we play Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Saturdays we play Xbox One games and give out big prizes. Plenty of chances to tune in for live commentary and gameplay while chatting with your fellow readers and viewers. It's like a live interactive podcast!

Windows Insider app scores an update, may have blocked Preview hack

228

Update: Reports suggest that Microsoft has plugged the Insider app. Using Fiddler to spoof Windows 10 on your unsupported device will no longer work. Although this was only one method to install Windows 10 unofficially, it was a popular one for those without an SD card.

If you're running the Windows 10 preview for phones on your device, an update for the Windows Insider app is waiting for you bringing it up to version 1.2.217.1. There's no telling what the update does, but it would be a good idea to go ahead and pull it down.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen unboxing and impressions

103

Lenovo's new 8-inch tablet has a few tricks, but taking notes is probably not one of 'em.

Besides catching that wrath of security and privacy hounds worldwide recently, Lenovo is also known to make some interesting consumer devices. One of those is the Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen, announced earlier this year at CES.

Luckily, this tablet is not part of the Superfish scandal, which only applied to a few notebooks.

The 8-inch Windows tablet is a port of sorts from the popular Android version, but with a twist in the form of AnyPen. The $250 tablet is now available and I besides the unboxing, I give you a quick tour and some initial thoughts about this exciting consumer tablet.

Make it Rain: The Love of Money now available on Windows Phone with Xbox Live support

66

Make it Rain: The Love of Money is arguably one of the oddest and silliest games to land on Windows Phone (and Windows 8.1 soon too), but here it is. From the developers Game Troopers comes a simple game that is also evidently popular on Android and iOS.

The goal? Flick dollar bills as fast as you to, well, you know, "make it rain". Of course, there is more to the game than just that as you can score points and then "invest in venture capital, loan sharking, or offshore drilling." Sure, whatever.

The NSA and GCHQ gave themselves a direct line into your phone

182

According to new documents leaked by Edward Snowden, the NSA and its UK counterpart, Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), hacked into the computers of Gemalto, a company that manufactures SIM cards for a large number of carriers around the world. In doing so, the intelligence agencies acquired encryption keys that would allow them to intercept communications from customers of all four major U.S. carriers, along with 450 others around the world.

QuizUp officially headed to Windows and Windows Phone!

80

This morning, Plain Vanilla, Inc. and Gateway Apps, LLC have announced plans to bring QuizUp (QuizUp.com) to Windows and Windows Phone as a universal app. The release is timed with an expected major update to QuizUp for Android and iOS due sometime this year.

More importantly, we are told that the Windows versions include all the features found on competitor platforms with the addition of Live Tiles to make the experience more personal. Cross platform play with Android and iOS is also a planned feature.

QuizUp was previously close to a release on Windows Phone last year, but the project was postponed. It now looks like the company behind the game (Plain Vanilla, Inc) was waiting for a more appropriate time to re-launch the game with a feature refresh and taking advantage of universal programming libraries for Windows. Exact details of the QuizUp update for iOS, Android and Windows have not yet been revealed.
