Twitter wants to make money when it grows up

No longer the fun-loving "Toys 'R' Us" kid, Twitter is all grown up now and it wants to make money. The social network released a statement on Wednesday outlining its strategy on the Internet, stating that it wants to bring in revenue, and lots of it, though it did not give any specifics on that plan. The confusing statement was met with some mockery on the social network itself.

New Windows Phone 8.1.1 build 14203 due soon, brings real-time Live Tile for Battery Saver

320

Earlier today, Microsoft unleashed a new update for their Battery Saver app. At the time, there was no changelog posted, so instead we had to infer the changes, some of which were obvious.

Tonight, Microsoft has updated the changelog in the Store, and it is a whopper, with many details about the refreshed system app. Even more, the changelog refers to Windows Phone 8.1 build 14203. The current Windows Phone 8.1.1 build for the Preview for Developers program is 14192, meaning there is a good chance Windows Phone users are about to get another OS update very soon.

Our Lumia 535 forums are now open for business

A few days ago Microsoft announced the Lumia 535. It's a remarkable little Windows Phone for a few reasons. It's the first Lumia to come with Microsoft branding. It's affordable, but doesn't skimp on some key features like other entry-level Lumia handsets. And it may just be the best new Lumia for value. We have a strong community here at Windows Central thanks to our forums. Which is why you should probably check out the Lumia 535 forums if you want to talk about the Lumia 535 with other Windows enthusiasts.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection – Xbox One review

Videogame re-releases are not an uncommon thing, especially early in a new console's life cycle. They help boost a fledgling system's software library and make older games available to new players. That last bit is important, because most game systems are not backwards compatible. Re-releases preserve games and keep them alive for existing fans and new generations of players.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection goes a step beyond most re-releases by compiling the four numbered Halo games into a single Xbox One release. No longer do players need to drag out their original Xbox consoles to enjoy Halo CE and especially Halo 2, nor do they need an Xbox 360 for Halo 3 and 4. Master Chief Collection packs them all in one bundle with plenty of new features. Don't miss our detailed review, featuring our best ever video review for a console game!
