    With all Microsoft had to show at last week's Windows 10 event – from HoloLens to Spartan, not to mention what the new OS will mean for the company's smartphones – there are plenty of good reasons to be excited for what Microsoft's doing next. But before we start focusing too much on the future, it's time for ...

    We've all praised Microsoft for the death of Internet Explorer in part of the company's Windows 10 announcements. We haven't really seen Microsoft's Spartan browser compared to others, but the features shown off at the event were cool enough to have us excited. We all thought the browser would simply be named "Microsoft ...

    This past week, we got to see a bit of what Microsoft was planning for Windows Phone. Microsoft even checked off a few items on our wish list, which we appreciated. One other little nugget that Microsoft dropped on us was that new flagship hardware was coming.  There were few real details about from whom, or when. It ...

    Samsung, despite being something of a copy-cat, makes great hardware. It's smartphones, especially those in the Galaxy S family, are fabulous pieces of hardware. Phablets like the Note, and the Note Edge cater to those of us who want larger devices, but don't want to pack around a tablet (or a tablet and a smartphone, ...

    Microsoft sure had a lot to share at yesterday's Windows 10 event, including both new hardware and software. On the hardware front, the HoloLens was easily the flashier of those new offerings, but we also got to see Microsoft's new collaborative wall-mounted slate, the Surface Hub. We heard about how easy it would be to ...

    The Microsoft Surface line-up has been a mixed bag of success and failure. We highly praise Microsoft for its Surface Pro line-up, but we haven't felt the same about its Surface RT, up to the point where we really didn't pay much attention to the launch of the Surface 2 for a review. While we did like the Surface ...

    Here’s the thing. I don’t get Google Glass. I never have. At first, it seemed like a Bluetooth headset, only more pretentious. It was a vague concept that you can use to “connect without disconnecting,” or while “staying in the moment” or some other kind of marketing drivel. Then it was priced at $1,500, and ...
