  1. Microsoft Now Accepts Bitcoin for Xbox Games and More Whether You Know What That Means or Not

    It's OK. You're not alone.

    That Bitcoin thing you keep hearing about but still don't exactly understand (just a guess) keeps expanding, and now Microsoft will let you use it to buy video games if you live in the US.

  3. Microsoft Killing Clip Art Because No One Uses It, Instead Suggests Bing Image Search Which People Totally Use

    No, not Clippy. Clip ART. Calm down.

    If Microsoft kills Clip Art on the Internet and no one is around to hear it, does it make a—wow, that sounds way darker than intended. No wonder Clippy looks so concerned.

  6. Microsoft Deploys Freaking Dalek Security Robots, Never Has to Worry About Theft Again

    "Do you validate parking?" "VAL-I-DATE! VAL-I-DAAAAAATE!"

    Wow. I wish Microsoft took personal computer security as seriously as they clearly do in the physical world at their offices. Their Silicon Valley campus now has five security robots that look frighteningly like Daleks. Leave it to a bunch of nerds to assume the appearance of a Dalek will strike fear into the hearts of criminals.

  7. A Five-Year-Old Passed the Microsoft IT Technician Exam. Seriously.

    So easy a kid can do it!

    Either the bar for being a Microsoft IT tech is so low a child can clear it, or five-year-old Ayan Qureshi is a genius.

    It was like some kind of... awesomepocalypse.

    While I can't speak for how Sunset Overdrive is as a full game, I did get to play it a bit last night along with a bunch of famous people I have no business being in the same room with, and it was a blast. I also played a bit of Assassin's Creed Unity, and I'll do my best to tell you about that, too—despite how awful I am at it. Hey, you try focusing on gaming with Michelle Hurst AKA Miss Claudette watching.

    Don't let the glass ceiling hit you on the way down, dude.

    Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella spoke yesterday at the annual Grace Hopper Celebration event honoring women in tech. He shouldn't have.

  10. Officially Official: Microsoft Buying Minecraft and Its Developer for $2.5 Billion, Creator Leaving the Company

    What do you think Mojang will build with all that gold?

    Reports were creeping around the Internet last week that Microsoft was looking to buy Minecraft developer Mojang, along with the game itself, for $2 billion. The sale is now officially happening with an even ridiculously higher price tag of $2.5 billion, and we're one step closer to every tech company just buying every other tech company until there's a giant tech mega-corporation that rules the world... and builds everything out of poorly-textured cubes.
