Microsoft

  1. 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. Luckily for IT people everywhere, it seems that young Qureshi is just very smart, but until he builds Skynet or whatever's in store for his brilliant future, I'm still open to the possibility that Microsoft tech support is secretly just five-year-olds.

  2. We Played Sunset Overdrive and More at Its Star-Studded Launch Party, and It Was FUN

    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.

  3. Male Microsoft CEO Tells Women To Trust In “Karma” and “The System” Instead Of Asking For A Raise

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. BREAKING: Microsoft Looks to Be Buying Minecraft For a Lot of Money

    The Wall Street Journal is saying Microsoft is working on a deal to purchase Mojang AB, makers of Minecraft. Guess how much they're reportedly offering...

  6. Xbox Kinect Can Be Used to Collect Crime Scene Data, Help Police… Kinect the Dots

    ( •_•)>⌐■-■ ... (⌐■_■) YYYYEEEEAAAAAHHHHH!

    No stone has been left unturned in the quest to find something, anything, that the Xbox Kinect is good for, and it may have paid off: The Kinect seems pretty useful for investigating crime scenes. I can only guess that it wound up in this role after its prominent part in the case of how the PS4 murdered the Xbox One.

  7. Looks Like You’ll Be Able to Preview Windows 9 Next Month If That’s What You’re Into

    No judgment.

    Microsoft is quickly moving towards the next version, but if they're not moving quickly enough for you, you can get your hands on the software early with a Windows 9 preview.

    Microsoft held their Gamescom press conference at the unholy early hour of 8AM ET, but we'll forgive them, since Gamescom is in Germany. If you missed it, you can catch the full replay with tons of gameplay footage and post-show coverage, or you can take a look at the highlights below.

  9. Sorry, PS4 Owners: The Tomb Raider Sequel Is an Xbox One Exclusive. Update: For Now

    You'll just have to dry your eyes on The Last of Us Remastered.

    Microsoft is doing everything it can to regain the momentum that put the Xbox 360 in the lead last generation (albeit just barely) and announced today that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be coming exclusively to Xbox One. We'll have to wait until the game's holiday 2015 release window to see if it works, but Microsoft just may have a system-seller on its hands.

  10. Microsoft Already Abandoning Most of Its Xbox TV Content, Closing Xbox Entertainment Studios

    We are not will not be entertained.

    You're safe for now, Netflix! Actually, since Microsoft is abandoning their Xbox TV content arm that only just got started last month, you've probably been safe the whole time. I can't imagine it's gone incredibly well for them given this information. Unfortunately, this comes as part of Microsoft's massive layoff of 18,000 jobs over the next year.
