Microsoft won't have to pay to use Live Tiles after patent suit dismissed

83

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board this week has ruled in favor of Microsoft in a patent lawsuit that was filed against it in 2012 by SurfCast. The board has thrown out all SurfCast's 52 claims of infringement that it said Microsoft had made when it released its Live Tiles feature in the Modern user interface, which debuted in Windows Phone 7 and is currently used with Windows Phone 8.1, Windows 8.1 and the upcoming Windows 10.

Nyko Media Remote review – a better, less expensive remote for Xbox One

56

With gaming consoles, first-party accessories are often much nicer than their third-party equivalents. We've all had a poor experience with a third-party controllers at some point, but recent evidence suggests that third-parties are getting better at the accessory game. For example, Power A's recent Xbox One Mini Series controller is a pretty sweet (though not entirely superior) low-priced alternative to official controllers.

It certainly helps a third party's case when the first-party item wasn't really exceptional. The Xbox One Media Remote is a fine accessory, but was designed more for style than substance. Accessory manufacturer Nyko has taken the opposite approach with its own media remote. The Nyko Media Remote for Xbox One is a better remote control than the official model, and it costs ten dollars less to boot.

Turbo Bugs Survival Run, a creepy crawly endless runner game for Windows Phone

29

Turbo Bugs Survival Run is an endless runner game that is available in the Windows Phone Store that plays out from a bug's perspective on things. You duck, dodge and jump to avoid various obstacles to stay one step ahead of a crazed bug destroying kid that is chasing you.

Graphics are nice and have a slight children's book feel about it (not necessarily a bad thing). Game play is challenging enough to keep the game from growing stale too quick and Turbo Bugs is available for low-memory devices.

Turbo Bugs Survival may not be as action packed as Subway Surfers or Temple Run but it does have a certain level of appeal that gamers young and old should find entertaining.

56

Advanced Tip Series!

There has been a tremendous outpouring of comments on Windows 10 Technical Preview, both positive and negative. Some people have had a lot of luck running it while others have run into problem after problem. When you're dealing with a software preview, that's just the nature of the beast.

You may be one of the technical daredevils that boldly loaded Windows 10 on your Surface Pro 3. You may also be one of those sad souls who now regret that decision. If you fell into the second category and neglected to heed all the warnings about creating recovery media for your device, Windows 10 install has almost certainly wiped out the recovery partition on your Surface.
