We got our hands on the new Vector Luna smartwatch. Not only is it (relatively) affordable, but it works with Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile with an official app. Here is our quick hands-on and initial thoughts about this hidden gem.
On December 8, 2015, Microsoft released Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.29 for the first time on a global scale testing the Windows as a Service (WaaS) model.

Continuum is a feature on the Lumia 950 and 950 XL that you might think is useless, but you'll probably change your mind after actually using it. Continuum lets you connect your Lumia 950 or 950 XL with a monitor, mouse and keyboard. We'll recommend some accessories to get you started.

For the best Continuum experience, we recommend the Microsoft Display Dock.
