  1. Things We Saw Today: Jon Snow Knows Mothers

    Kinda, sorta, well okay, not really.

    This video, while adorable and heartbreaking at the same time, simply raises more questions for me. Do they celebrate Mother's Day in Westeros? Why was Hodor hiding in the curtain? Why am I laughing so hard?!

    Dance magic dance. Leap magic leap.

    This video from the "augmented reality" company Magic Leap purportedly shows a game they've been "playing around the office," and whether it's a concept video or something closer to reality, it sure looks like a lot of fun.

  4. Apple, Disney, Facebook, Twitter, & Hundreds More Urge the Supreme Court to Uphold Marriage Equality

    Today in good news.

    The Supreme Court of the United States will soon hear a case on whether or not state-by-state anti-marriage equality laws are constitutional, which is likely to clear the way for nationwide legal acceptance that we should all be able to marry the person we choose. Now, a group of 379 companies, from tech and entertainment giants to other massive corporations, has written to the court to voice their support and lay out some hard, logistical reasons other than, "It's the right thing to do."

  7. Minority Report Is Coming True, Microsoft Wants Stores to use Kinect to Recognize Shoppers

    "My my. This is the third time you've been to GameStop this wee—" SHUTTUP.

    Minority Report is coming true because of Kinect! ...Is not just a headline from when the Kinect originally debuted wacky hand-waving controls back in 2010, but is a real thing that's happening again as Microsoft encourages retail stores to electronically recognize customers using the gaming peripheral which most gamers don't really want.

  8. New Microsoft Browser Codenamed “Spartan” Is Reportedly Killing Internet Explorer

    Internet Explorer has encountered an error and needs to close. Forever.

    Because so many people are terribly unhappy with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, Microsoft is hard at work on an Internet Explorer reboot under a different name. Maybe it'll get a new, gritty origin story about avenging the original IE's death!

  9. Xbox Live and PlayStation Network Attacks, Outages Continue to Ruin Christmas

    Meanwhile, my Nintendo 64 works just fine. Just saying.

    Christmas is canceled. Well, if you got an Xbox or PlayStation console, it might feel that way. Both systems' online gaming networks are still experiencing trouble today after they were downed yesterday by "hackers."

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
