Microsoft popups

Apparently that's not the case, as Windows Central is reporting that the Windows Phone version of Minecraft Pocket Edition is now essentially dead in the water, and will no longer receive updates or patches. Why? Because nobody plays it.

Surface Phone vs. Surface Tablet

Microsoft might be out of the smartphone-making business for the time being, but the company has been rumored to be working on a high-end Surface Phone.

Windows might start losing its lifelong battle against Apple this year

Windows vs macOS

Windows vs Mac is just about the oldest battle in computer fanboy history. Right-click sheeple against computers that just barely work is a flame war for the ages. But in the history of the rivalry, it's always been accepted that Windows will be sole on more devices. Quality vs quantity is a defining feature of the disagreement.
