Microsoft Solitaire

Back in the day, well before you could waste hours online browsing around the web, Microsoft's built-in Solitaire app on Windows was a game that was often in heavy rotation. If you remember those pre-Internet days fondly, or with absolute horror, you can relive it all with a new iOS and Android app from Microsoft that brings Solitaire and a number of other nostalgic-fueled games to your mobile device.

The non-profit organization has three tiers of membership, with platinum being the highest, followed by gold and silver. As a platinum member, Microsoft has committed to donating a minimum of $500,000 annually to the advancement and open source development of many different projects.

Steve Ballmer finally explains why he thought the iPhone would be a flop

Ballmer iPhone Quote Explained
Microsoft’s former CEO Steve Ballmer had a glorious reaction to the announcement of the iPhone, a product that completely changed the mobile landscape. The interview where he lashes out against that expensive iPhone comes up time and again, proving that Microsoft failed to realize the potential of the mobile business. Since then, Microsoft tried to no avail to morph its Windows Mobile business into something that could compete against the iPhone and Android. The company failed miserably. Ballmer left the company as a result, but it’s only now that he’s ready to explain that famous iPhone prediction.

The best MacBook Pro alternatives now that Apple ruined everything

MacBook Pro Alternative
The new MacBooks that Apple announced leave a lot to be desired for the supposed "Pro." There's no SD card slot, no discrete graphics, and a dongle-fuelled hell if you want to connect to an external screen. But hard as this might be to believe, companies not named Apple do make computers, and some of them are even good. Here's the best alternatives to this year's MacBook Pro. All of them have real USB ports.

How the Surface Studio’s best feature is inspired by much older technology

Surface Studio Design Tricks
Microsoft last year surprised us with a convertible laptop/tablet design that came with a special type of hinge. This year, the company fixed a hinge-related issue for the Surface Book but delivered its newest hinge innovation inside its first ever Surface-branded desktop. Why is that new hinge design so attractive? Because the Surface Studio can easily be turned into a large tablet-like device that you can draw on. That’s definitely something you can’t do on other desktops running Windows, let alone macOS.
