State of Decay will come back to life on Xbox One next year

24

The Xbox One launched with an exclusive game called Dead Rising 3 that, statistically speaking, contains all of the zombies. That game is all about putting hundreds of zombies on-screen at once and then letting players drive cars through them. Plus you can play dress up! It's not the most serious zombie game in the world.

Next year though, the zombie fighting on Xbox One is going to get deadly serious. Today Microsoft and developer Undead Labs announced that Xbox 360 fan-favorite survival fantasy game State of Decay will be coming to Xbox One in 2015! The new edition will include new and improved 1080p visuals, all previous DLC, and brand new content as well. State of Decay: Year One Survivor Edition will be anything but decayed.

Next week in Berlin, Microsoft is expected to announce at two new Windows Phones, specifically the Lumia 730 and Lumia 830, both mid-range Windows Phones.

This morning, new photos of the Lumia 730 – first revealed by us a few weeks ago – have hit the web ahead of the press event. Even more, the photos confirm what we suspected: there are single SIM with 4G and dual SIM 3G variants.

Refurbished AT&T Asus VivoTab is yours for just $160

92

Sometimes we want the latest and greatest in tech, but simply cannot afford such luxuries. This is where refurbished units come into play and AT&T currently has a sweet deal on the Asus VivoTab 10.1-inch 32GB Windows 8.1 RT tablet, which can be yours for just $160. Since this is a Windows RT-based tablet and not running full Windows 8, the product is slightly more affordable than the Intel option available elsewhere. That said, if you're looking for a companion device to deal with web browsing, light gaming and more, it's a steal of a deal.

Candy Bird, an uncomplicated time waster of a game

26

There isn't much to the Windows Phone game Candy Bird. You are tasked with keeping your bird in flight for as long as possible, collecting candy that will randomly appear on the screen. Along the way you will also need to avoid spikes that are at the bottom and sides of the screen that will ground your bird and end the game.

Available for low-memory devices, Candy Bird has simple gaming controls and nice, minimalistic graphics. After spending a little time with the game, we can't say CandyBird will hold up to marathon gaming sessions but for shorter bits of time, Candy Bird isn't a bad time waster of a game.

Cortana has new songs, but she can't sing them yet

168

It looks like Cortana is learning new songs. She has been able to sing for a while now, but asking her recently has resulted in new songs. There's a little problem, though. She doesn't actually sing them out. Instead, many of the songs are read aloud. Perhaps she's in the middle of rehearsing them? Go ahead and try asking her with your Windows Phone device. We've tried it ourselves on the Nokia Lumia 930. Watch the video!
