Alleged photos of a mid-range Lumia 830 appear for your viewing pleasure

240

It's expected that Microsoft will release a number of Windows Phones this year (as well as X), but we could be looking at a Lumia 820 replacement to bolster its mid-range offering. Photos have been published on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, showing off an unannounced Lumia device which WPDang believes to be the Lumia 830. We're not sure how real (or fake) these images are, but the pictured smartphone appears to sport an aluminum frame with a polycarbonate rear, much like the Lumia 930, and it looks pretty snazzy.

168

In the ongoing cat and mouse game between Rudy Huyn and Tinder, it appears Tinder is gaining the upper hand.

On Monday, June 30th Tinder filed a complaint against 6tin over the usage of 'Tinder' in the app description, triggering Microsoft to pull the app. Within hours, however, Huyn had removed the offending language and 6tin was right back on the Store. Now just 48 hours later, 6tin once again bears the "This app is no longer published" moniker on the Store for Windows Phone.

Here's how to add Ethernet and three USB 3.0 ports to your Surface Pro 3

35

The Surface Pro 3 is one powerful tablet. Or a computer. Regardless of how you use it, the Surface Pro 3 can do a lot, especially with that single USB 3.0 port on the side. Recently, we took a look at a 4-in-1 adapter for the Surface series, but today we have a new one that is also highly affordable.

The HooToo HT-UE01 3-Port USB 3.0 HUB with 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Converter costs less than $30, and it greatly enhances what you can do on the Surface Pro series (all three generations). RT users have to sit on the side as Ethernet support non-functioning with this adapter.

Move over Xbox Music as Muzik Player for Windows Phone 8.1 is here

105

Microsoft is working hard on improving the music player experience on Windows Phone 8.1 ever since they decoupled it from the OS. Although app updates are frequent it never hurts to see what independent developers can bring to the table.

Muzik Player is a new option from Visum Solutions that started as a beta program in our forums. Like OneMusic, Muzik Player is an alternative player that embraces the Modern design familiar to Windows Phone users. Unfortunately, it cannot yet play Xbox Music Pass files that have DRM, but if you own your own music, it is worthy of your consideration.
