Microsoft software developer job posting hints at Cortana on Windows

97

Cortana has been a major hit with Windows Phone with consumers switching region and language settings to take full advantage of the personal assistant from Microsoft. Unfortunately, there's no similar experience on Windows 8, but that could change if a recent job posting is anything to go by. Microsoft is looking to merge all experiences together, so it's certainly plausible the company would look to bring Cortana to Windows.

76

It is half way through the month of May and Nokia’s latest (and technically last) Lumias are starting to see the light of day. This morning, the Lumia 630, 635 and 930 were all announced as heading to Brazil, at various dates with some pricing info, as well. Perhaps more interestingly, the Lumia 630 will evidently come with Mobile DTV (Digital TV). For those who aren’t aware, DTV is a standard for delivering free over-the-air Mobile Digital TV signals, which is pretty great.

FCC votes to limit AT&T, Verizon involvement in mid-2015 spectrum auction

21

Even with threats from AT&T and Verizon, the FCC has gone forward and voted in favor of previously-proposed restrictions on the 2015 spectrum auction that will offer up valuable low-band airwaves to wireless carriers. The restrictions put in place will reserve portions of the spectrum going up for auction for carriers that don't already have large chunks of low-band spectrum, largely cutting out AT&T and Verizon from participating in many markets.

Disney's Maleficent Free Fall casts a match-3 spell on Windows Phone

44

Disney has kicked off a new game for their upcoming film starring Angelina Jolie called Maleficent Free Fall. The play is more or less standard match-3 fare, only following the theme of Sleeping Beauty's classic villainess. Players are presented with a grid of colored gems, and must swap adjacent tiles to match up those of the same color so they disappear. Every stage requires players to eliminate a certain number of gems in a limited number of moves. The standard freemium tropes are employed here, including in-app purchases for power-ups and a timer-based energy system.
