Hands on with Windows 10

Microsoft bucked the trend and decided to count in a new modern way and skip Windows 9 altogether. I'm not exactly sure why they wouldn't go from Windows 7, Windows 8 and then to Windows 9, but Windows 10 is now announced officially. I think this is mostly to appease the Germans. Either way, there is a lot of details that are now public today and if you want to see what it looks like in action - there are some official screenshots at the link below.

Microsoft is launching Windows 10 as the new face of both Windows and eventually Windows Phone. At one point during Microsoft’s Tuesday press event, Terry Myerson, the executive vice president in charge of Microsoft’s OS group, called the new OS “our most open, collaborative OS project ever.” Collaborative, indeed. Microsoft is looking for user feedback, and what I demo'd on Tuesday may not be the same OS that customers receive next year.

Samsung @ CES 2013

One of the highlights of every CES is a stop by the Samsung booth and this year didn’t disappoint. Samsung has so many products on display which makes it feel like walking through a candy story wishing you could have one of each. The big product in the TV market this year at CES is 4k displays (4096x2160 resolution) and Samsung had a bunch of those on display. Right now content is pretty tough to find in resolutions that high, but the demo clips that they were showing attracted quite a crowd.

Also on display was one of Samsung's curved OLED TV's. The curve in the screen wasn't drastic but it was enough to give the picture a bit of a different look and thanks to the OLED technology the picture was great.

Steam passed Xbox Live

Steam has hit 65 Million active users which now puts them ahead of Xbox Live when it comes to active users and shows a 30% rise for Steam in the past year. This is a very interesting stat as PC gaming has been written off for a few years now, yet Steam has managed to grow anyways. The Verge has all the numbers over here.

Steam now has more than 65 million active accounts. The figure marks a 30 percent rise in players over the last year. The video game digital-download platform also boasts daily peak concurrent users of more than 6 million.

Android App Pick - Super Stickman Golf 2

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we take a look at Super Stickman Golf 2. This is one of Jason Schneider's favorite Apps and after I played it for five minutes, I suddenly realized three hours later why he likes it. It's pretty much a productivity killer that is absolutely fun, challenging and free. In-App purchases are available, but it plays just fine for free. Get your golf on with our App Pick of the Week!
