What's the best antivirus software to buy right now? In February 2015, the list includes BitDefender, Kaspersky, and Avira.

Microsoft believes that screens smaller than 10 inches aren't used by 'professionals,' so don't expect it to charge for editing and viewing Office documents. Oh, and the Surface Pro mini -- probably dead.

Phones with screens up to 8 inches diagonally? Tablets as small as 7 inches? Microsoft sets some broad, overlapping spec ranges for mobile devices, especially Windows 10 for phones.

The latest Windows 10 technology that Microsoft has confirmed is Windows Hello, a biometric identification system that will recognize you and automatically log you in.

Microsoft's Bracket Builder tool is now live, and it will make your NCAA bracket picks for you if you have no idea who will come out on top of March Madness.

Guess how much Microsoft will charge for an annual subscription for Xbox Music on Saturday, March 14. Go on, guess!

It's actually worse than that. Cricket fan--yes, cricket-- and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is beating both Google and his own company's Bing at NCAA brackets. It's just not fair.

Cool new features on the horizon include power-sipping chips and the Hello authentication technology.

I'd buy a surface if Microsoft hadn't gone the planned obsolesce route. It's one thing to solder components in place to save space. However, its unacceptable to use epoxy to make it impossible to open the case or replace the battery without cracking the screen. Sure, it's profitable, but it's environmentally oblivious at best. I bought a Yoga instead, and couldn't be happier with screws and swappable components.

Tesla founder Elon Musk said that its Tesla electric cars could drive themselves today, but not with the reliability that they need to make them safe. But it's only a matter of time, and of hardware.

No more downloading update after update. Windows 10 installs and refreshes will save significant space compared to Windows 8.1, and take far less time, too.

Twitter and Periscope confirm that the livestreaming video app is now part of the Twitter flock. Periscope is reportedly similar to Meerkat, a competing video streaming startup that's making waves.

Count 'em and weep: We found bloatware lists exceeding two dozen items as we walked the aisles at Best Buy. Here's a sample.
