It was last Thursday that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella sent a companywide memo. In a letter to employees, Satya Nadella laid out the plans for the company including organizational changes. Many took that to be the code words for upcoming layoffs. He avoided questions the next day about any pending layoffs, but a few days later Bloomberg reported that Microsoft was set to lay off a large amount of staff as part of organizational changes. New info out today suggests those cuts are coming tomorrow morning and will primarily impact those from the Nokia acquisition.

A long time ago there was this Adolf Hitler guy, and it turns out he was history's biggest jerk. As a result, many people have fantasized about going back in time and killing the punk off before he got into everybody's business.

Angry Monkey Run is another endless runner gaming option for Windows Phone 8. The game has simple mechanics, nice graphics and can be a little on the frustrating side as far as game challenge is concerned.

Juiced Wireless Charger Pad review

Microsoft Surface owners might remember Juiced Systems as the seller of the super useful Surface Adapters, which squeeze a bunch of extra functionality out of the Surface tablets' single USB ports. Juiced sells a variety of unique USB hubs for mobile devices. All very good, but our Windows Phones can't use 'em.

Still, owners of certain Windows Phones like the Lumia 920 or those with the wireless charging cover can certainly benefit from the Juiced Wireless Charger Pad. The pad is tiny and ultrathin, providing a stylish and affordable way to pump power into phones that support Qi wireless charging. It draws that power from a micro-USB cable, providing a clear advantage over Nokia's Wireless Charging Plate.
