Hands-on with 6discover for Windows Phone

90

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.

[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

420

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.

One issue with all systems that detect motion is accuracy. Version 2 of the Kinect is certainly more powerful than its predecessor, but the nuances of finger movement are still lacking. Enter 'Handpose' a project that Microsoft Research has been working on for some time.

The Best Laptops

If you’re on the hunt for the best laptop available, look no further. We’ve got the very best options available right now. These include buttoned-down workhorses, versatile convertibles, gaming beasts, and super-slim ultrabooks that are ready for the road.

The great thing about Windows is that there are a ton of full-bodied tablets (namely the Surface Pro 3) that can do just as much as a laptop with the right accessories. Many of these have keyboard dock accessories that really blur the line between laptop and tablet, but just to keep things clear, we’re sticking with devices that are permanently attached at the hinge.
