Xbox One: Details emerge on licensing, online connectivity, and privacy

533

On May 21st, when Microsoft officially announced the Xbox One a lot of questions still remained. Will I be able to sell my games? Share my games? Do I need an internet connection once a day or once a month? These were questions we did not expect answered until E3, but Microsoft has decided to attack these concerns head-on and has shared their plans on all these fronts and more. That leaves E3 to be focused on games (a good call in our book). Details on the Xbox One after the break.

Liquid Daffodil adds inline image support to notifications sent through Unification

25

The Unification service by Liquid Daffodil is picking up steam with more consumers and developers getting involved. To help make the experience as feature rich as possible, the team has enabled inline image support, meaning developers can now send images in notifications, as well as the standard text. This is especially useful for social apps that could render photos shared by others, for example.

Sneak peek: Viner, an unofficial app for viewing Vines on Windows Phone

45

While we now have Instagram and Snapchat clients for Windows Phone, albeit unofficial ones, Vine (www.vine.co) seems like the next big app to conquer. The other day we showed you how Rudy Huyn had a working alpha called ‘6secs’ that was progressing along and now developer Philippe Maes has one called Viner.

Viner is a fast and fluid app that gives you the ability to register, view your personal timeline, search for and follow your friends, like or comment on their posts, view their Vines and likes, change your settings or view your own likes, find the coolest vines with the Editor's Picks and Popular Now, and more.

We've previously followed the development of the app (back when it was known as Itsdagram) and provided you all with a say on what the new name should be.

Diablo III, Fable Anniversary, and more huge games coming to Xbox 360 and/or Xbox One

51

E3 is fast upon us, as the year’s largest and most important gaming expo kicks off next week. This is the time for console gaming leaks. And this year it also happens to be a week for big announcements, perhaps because some publishers fear news of their games would be lost in the wave of news that strikes during E3 itself.

If you have an Xbox 360 or Xbox One, I dare you not to be excited by the games we’re about to discuss… I’m talking about a new (old) Fable game, the first game from original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare creators Respawn Entertainment, and one very big PC port: Diablo III! Read on for that news and more.

New front-facing photo of Nokia EOS with the display on revealed

126

As if we needed even more photos of the Nokia EOS (we already saw it in red this morning), the expected 41MP camera sporting Windows Phone, yet-another photos has come forward today that shows off the display of the device in bright sunlight.

While we know Nokia has their sunlight readability feature on Lumia phones and that the EOS would have it as well, it’s still kind of neat to see it in its glory (though Nokia must be pretty perturbed at the constant stream of leaks we’re posting).

64

The official Twitter app for Windows Phone, which received a hearty update a few months ago, has just been bumped to version 2.1 and it’s quite significant too.

The big new feature is integrated Lens support with filters.
