There's a lot to love about Windows 10, but as it happens, there are a bunch of caveats to be aware of, as well. In fact, as soon as the OS released last week, security experts the world over began to raise a stink about how this is the OS that basically throws away your privacy, and in some cases, even your control. One example of the

If you thought the Angry Birds franchise had soared as high as it could possibly go and there would be limited interest in yet another release, you thought wrong. Angry Birds 2, the first official sequel to the original Angry Birds title released in 2009, notched 1 million downloads in just 12 hours, and 10 million downloads in three days. That's

With the launch of Windows 10 now behind us (hard to believe it's finally happened, isn't it?), Microsoft can begin pimping one of its next "big" products: HoloLens. By now, what HoloLens can do shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone - it's in effect the ultimate augmented reality solution. But it needs tools and software to really sell itself,

Microsoft's strategy to offer Windows 10 as a no-cost upgrade option to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users is paying off. Just one day after launch, the Redmond outfit announced that Windows 10 had found its way onto more than 14 million devices. By Friday morning, that number unofficially ballooned to 67 million devices. An anonymous Microsoft

As anticipated, this week has been an incredible one for Windows 10. It launched just this past Wednesday, and immediately followed with a way to force the upgrade to go through. We also saw companies like AMD and NVIDIA roll out some new drivers to make the upgrade experience as smooth as possible. All of this seems to have boded quite

Autodesk is no stranger to 3D animation and professional software. The company offers several design tools for developers, including Maya, 3ds Max, Fusion 360, AutoCAD, Civil 3D, and the list goes on, though up until now, one thing you wouldn't find in Autodesk's portfolio is a game engine. That changes today. Announced at the Game Developers

Apple might be the richest company on the planet, but it's not about to slow down on its quest for total market domination. It's constantly looking at new avenues to get into, and as we've been hearing about for a while, autos is one of them. It's hard at this point to picture a vehicle sharing the same badging as an iPhone, but as time passes,

#SlingTV  
NBC-owned and operated (O&O) stations in San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. are refusing to air an advertisement for Sling TV that paints a poor picture of the traditional pay-TV model. In response, the Dish Network-owned Internet TV provider slammed Comcast, which in turn owns NBC, in a blog post waxing angry over its censorship. "Here's

The increasingly bitter war between Nvidia and AMD just hit a new low, with AMD Gaming Scientist Richard Huddy yet again going on the offensive and slinging accusations at Team Green over its proprietary GameWorks technology. Huddy calls it "tragic" and "unhealthy for PC gaming." If you're even remotely entrenched in either company's graphics

Canon has a new camera that will be available just in time for the holidays, but at $30,000, the model is going to be on only a few wish lists. The ME20F-SH is capable of creating the equivalent of a 4,000,000 ISO setting, which means it can capture color video in extremely-low light settings. In fact, according to Canon, it can provide “high-quality

Wake up and smell the coffee #Mozilla  . This is a sad excuse for championing innovation. Develop some real IP of your own maybe? #Microsoft  did and #Windows10  is pretty sweet. Running #Firefox  on it right now just fine, thanks.
If you perform a clean install of Windows 10, you shouldn’t be too surprised that Microsoft Edge is chosen as your default web browser. After all, it’s the only browser installed by default (well, I guess you could also count the old and decrepit Internet Explorer, which still lingers around for compatibility purposes). But when performing
