Microsoft Uses Marketing Magic To Jump To Windows 10

While we all expected the next Windows to be titled, Windows 9, following the current OS 8, Microsoft threw us all for a loop yesterday. The next Operating System will actually be called Windows 10.

Microsoft’s Executive VP of operating systems, Terry Myerson, has said that the move is because 10 is such a massive upgrade from 8, they decided to skip 9 altogether.

Of course, the seasoned consumer knows that this is all marketing hype. Really, this means that Microsoft is finally going to address the plethora of issues that came with Windows 8, and will instead be moving back to what made the Windows operating system the standard in the first place.

Back to basics, with an interface that favors keyboard and mouse usage. Instead of focusing on the more tablet styled Windows 8.

What’s more, 10 is being made to run on a broad amount of devices. Including phones, tablets, PC and laptops. My best friend Paul Mathieson is definitely excited. He was one of the most vocal critics I personally knew, when he “upgraded” to Windows 8.

Tablet style interface just doesn’t lend itself well to the keyboard/mouse combination.

Kids Are Breaking iPhone 6’s in Apple Stores

You’ve probably heard about bendgate by now. The latest controversy involving Apple phones. Apparently, because of the nature of the iPhone 6’s design it’s possible to bend the phone. If you’re sans protective case, the plastic and metal involved is fairly pliable if you happen to be wearing tight jeans.

And a couple of investigative teens are taking a look at the problem personally, and actually visiting Apple stores, to investigate whether or not the phones can be bent.

You can see from the photo above, that yes, the phones can indeed be bent with a little bit of force.

Although Marnie Bennett doesn’t recommend destroying property that doesn’t belong to you. Probably best to leave the phones where they are, so that you don’t face criminal charges in your quest to make yourself a viral video.

Plus, now that the news is out, I’m sure the Apple employees are watching the iPhone 6 displays a little bit more closely now. Just to be sure nobody gets interested in bending any of the phones available.

The Life Hack Website That Isn’t Annoying

Life hack is a term that even I despise. So why am I writing about a website that provides life hack advice? Well, because this one is actually really cool.

The site provides tons of advice for all walks of life. Whether it be life hacks relating to fitness, your personal life, food, as well as tech advice.  Making the most of websites like Google, or Wikipedia for example.

The tips are up to 1664 and counting.  So take a little time, and see what you can learn.  I definitely found some interesting advice that I’ll be using in the future.

Bungie Nerfed Destiny’s 1st Loot Cave But A 2nd Has Appeared

Bungie Nerfed Destiny’s 1st Loot Cave But A 2nd Has Appeared

If you’re like me, you’re one of the Destiny players that sunk countless hours of game time into shooting at a random hole, and killing the legions of Hive that respawned infinitely. Up until yesterday, this was one of the best possible ways to farm Engrams in an incredibly short amount of time.

Countless gamers utilized the loot cave to farm for better gear, weapons, and to level up the Cryptarch so that he would bestow better gear upon you. This was also a great way to level up weapons and armor, as the canon fodder presented an extremely fast XP opportunity.

However, Bungie nerfed that yesterday morning, and killed the beloved loot cave for Destiny’s entire gamer community.

But, as exploits tend to be, there’s of course another cave that functions pretty much the same way. Also located in Old Russia, this cave does about the same thing, although you have to stand further back, so shooting enemies is a little bit more difficult.

However, you’re presented with a perfect opportunity to continue farming engrams, and finding some really great gear, really quickly. Just make sure you take advantage of the cave now. Because undoubtedly, it’s going to disappear very soon.

Here’s IGN’s guide on how to find the new cave.
