This is awesome. Start Screen parallax effect. http://buff.ly/1ftRZsv
What is parallax? It is an effect used to create depth. You can see it in action on the Windows 8 Start Screen. The background scrolls at a different speed than the live tiles. A leaked video has shown off a similar effect with Start Screen backgrounds in Windows Phone 8.1.

Looks like the Windows Phone Store is getting a new look. http://buff.ly/1lsayVk
One of the few remaining things from Windows Phone 8.1 we haven't seen yet is the Store. This is obviously a very important part of the OS, and there are many complaints about it. Earlier this week Microsoft started to fix one of the biggest gripes we've had with the Store, but that's just the beginning.

"Nokia Blue" may be the next Nokia update. http://buff.ly/1ftQNFs
We've been talking a lot about Windows Phone 8.1 the last few months, but one thing we haven't heard about is Nokia's version. Nokia always has a special version of ever Windows Phone update for their own Lumia devices.

Windows Phone 8.1 running on an unreleased phone. http://buff.ly/1ftRS01
In the past we have seen Windows Phone 8.1 running on a current device, but now we can see it running on the Lumia 630. This is the first time we've seen the new OS running on an unreleased phone.

Microsoft is dominating Apple's own app stores. http://buff.ly/1lsaCo1
Yesterday Microsoft finally released Office for iPad. This launch arrived with much fanfare, but also much apathy. Many people have started to switch away from Office in the last few years, so they feel like it's not as popular as it once was. According to the App Store charts that couldn't be further from the truth.

Do you want a HTC One M8 with Windows Phone 8.1? http://buff.ly/1ftRxuf
Yesterday HTC unveiled their new flagship Android phone, the One (M8). There were rumors of the One that HTC would make a Windows Phone with the same hardware as the One, and now that same rumor is popping up again with the M8.

This is a good start for Google apps on Windows Phone. http://buff.ly/1ftQZoc
Google is taking a big step toward allowed their services to be used on Windows Phone devices. They have released an API library for.NET. This new library will let developers who use Microsoft's .NET framework to integrate their apps with Google services.

Finally. The Windows Phone Store search is fixed. http://buff.ly/1lsa9C4
Searching for apps in the Windows Phone Store has been notoriously bad. It has been a real pain to find official apps a midst the dozens of clones, or trying to find a lesser-known app by typing in the exact name.
