    Is it still worth even thinking about buying the Lumia 950 or the Lumia 950 XL at this point? Or might you be interested in a Surface Phone? Whatever the case, Microsoft's still re-offering this deal to the US and Canada anyway, so you might as well take heed and think about it. If you decide to get a Microsoft Lumia 950 XL from the Microsoft Store for $649 (or $849 up north), you'll get a black Lumia 950 for free. Both devices are unlocked and set for your local GSM networks. The deal is good until June 27 or next Monday. To maximize the savings, you can get a free year of Office 365 ...

    Want a different take on the Microsoft Surface 3? Huawei introduced one earlier this year with its MateBook. Since February, the products made its trek around the world. It's only now crawled back around to the US for a launch here. Hardware-wise, Huawei's crafted an 6.9mm thick aluminium chassis to hold in a 12-inch IPS LCD at 2160 x 1440 display with viewable angles through 160 degrees of rotation. Windows Hello takes advantange of dual array of microphpones and a side-mounted fingerprint reader. A 33.7Wh battery should get you through a nine-hour day. Intel's 6th generation Core M ...

    Following the launch of the Axon 7, ZTE announced that it will be building 23 retail stores for consumers to go hands on with products. Most of these stores will be in China, but we're expecting to see an outlet in Mexico, and some presence in Europe. For all of our high tech shopping options, is the future of technology retail a return to "brick and mortar" retail? Tech purchases are often fairly emotional. Our gadgets need to satisfy daily tasks, but our gadgets also need to tickle our brains in some way. Whether it's design, color options, style, status, or some other intangible, a ...

    Oculus is about to be more visible than ever before this weekend as the company can finally stop going it alone in sales. Its Rift headset will be coming to the Microsoft Store online and Amazon on May 6 at noon Eastern. It'll also hit the brick-and-mortars with 48 Best Buy stores nationwide demonstrating and selling the virtual reality rig starting on May 7 with more locations soon to stock the Rift. Oculus warns of limited inventories as it's already barely keeping up with pre-order volume. If you already did put in a pre-order and are arranging to get a demo and a purchase at a Best ...

    Is this whole "online ordering" thing just a crapshoot to you? Want to get away from the evils of Amazon Prime? Or the shipping confirmation pages of those cartel cargo movers? Do you absolutely abhor the Oculus Rift? Have we got news for you! A select few Microsoft Stores and GameStops in both the US and Canada will have demo areas to show off the purported magic of SteamVR as experienced through the HTC Vive. For Microsoft, it has initially setup space in its New York flagship outlet as well as stores in Bellvue Square and Salt Lake City's City Creek Center. The Microsoft Store at Park ...

    It's rapidly starting to look like your best chance at getting a Surface tablet in the next couple weeks (unless you're order's already in, of course) is to head over to a Microsoft retail store. For those of you planning to make the trek, Microsoft has revealed an added incentive to help sweeten the deal, offering some customers a year's worth of premium Xbox Music service. We talked about Xbox Music a little last week, upon Microsoft announcing the cross-platform streaming service. While it's going to be free as an ad-supported edition on Windows 8 devices, a premium $10 monthly ...

    This was a big morning for Microsoft: it opened its first retail store in Boston (but not its first in New England), and it took the wraps off its first major logo revision in a quarter-century. That the company chose Beantown as the venue for such a high-profile announcement was doubtless no accident; Microsoft has been beefing up its presence in and around the city for the past few years, most notably in the form of its Microsoft Research branch in neighboring Cambridge, MA. Today's store announcement saw the company further shore up its relations with the greater Boston area, donating ...

    Slow news day? Got that right!  How about I tell you about my visit to the grand opening of the Microsoft Store in Danbury, CT then?  First of all this is the first Microsoft Store to open in New England and it's the 3rd to open in the North East USA (with two others already up and running in New Jersey).  Of course there was a line to get into the store for the grand opening since visitors would get tickets to a concert later that night as well as a free bag and t-shirt.  While waiting for the store to open, some of the store employees gave away things like an Xbox, Laptop, and other ...
