After taking the helm of Microsoft, CEO Satya Nadella had laid out a vision that would see the closure of the Xbox Entertainment Studios division through layoffs and cost cuts. However, as it turns out, the studio, which would be responsible for exclusive video content for the Xbox platform, isn't quite dead yet and there may still be some life left.

380

Should he upgrade to the newer device or stick with the imaging monster, Lumia 1020? A few forum members have voiced in their opinions already. What do you think?

Although WhatsApp and BBM rule the roost for messenger apps these days, Telegram comes in right behind them in terms of features and even security due to the onboard encryption. The group behind Telegram held a contest to see who could make the best Telegram app for Windows Phone, and back in May Ngram won the honors.

Today, version 0.1.3.4 is live in the Store, and this is more than just standard performance improvements, as new features and some refined ones are included.

AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 getting Lumia Cyan and 8.1 updates

320

It is just after 1PM Eastern Time, which means new OS updates are rolling out for those on Windows Phone. Today, we are getting many reports that the Lumia Cyan and Windows Phone 8.1 update is going out for those with a Lumia 1020 on AT&T (and presumably a few others worldwide).

As mentioned previously, if you are using the Preview for Developers program and are already on Windows Phone 8.1 or 8.1 Update, you will not get an update notification today as the hold is still in place for the Cyan update. Instead, you need to use the Nokia Recovery tool to roll back to Windows Phone 8.0. (In some instances, the 8.1 and Cyan update is already on Nokia's servers, so instead of downgrading, you can just flash the device with the update.)
