Microsoft’s Surface brutally bullies the iPad Pro in a new commerical

Surface vs iPad Pro
There's little love lost between the Microsoft Surface and the iPad. Apple's device is more popular, but the Surface is more powerful and versatile, which Microsoft argues makes it an all-around better device. The debate will never be settled, but Microsoft has taken out an ad to show the iPad Pro who is boss. The format is not new: both devices, side-by-side, with Siri talking to Cortana. The idea is that Siri is putting on a party to celebrate her new keyboard, but Cortana is the rude kid that shows up and craps all over everything.

Don’t ask why you’d turn an Xbox One S into a laptop, just be impressed

Xbox One S Laptop
Earlier this month, Microsoft released the Xbox One S, a console that has a smaller footprint than its predecessor, but also comes ready to offer some neat additional features. However, you still need to hook up the Xbox One S to a TV set and a power supply to play games, and you can’t take it with you on the road. That’s unless you hire Eddie Zarick to build you an Xbook One S, which is exactly what you expect: an Xbox One S laptop.

How to enable Windows 10’s hidden Dark Mode

Windows 10 Tips And Tricks 2016
Somewhere deep inside Apple's iOS 10 beta software there's a special "dark mode" feature just waiting to come out. Sadly, users don't have access to it just yet — in fact no one does unless you're a developer and you know how to dig for it. As it turns out, Microsoft's Windows 10 software also has a hidden dark mode. When enabled, it's a theme that turns the platform's entire interface dark. The heavy use of black and other dark tones in Microsoft's dark theme make the UI look incredibly sleek, and it's also a bit easier on your eyes. The bad news is there's no simple toggle in older versions of Windows 10 that makes enabling and disabling this cool feature simple. But the good news if you don't want to install the new anniversary update is that unlike iOS 10's dark mode, anyone can enable the dark theme in any version of Windows 10 in just a few minutes by following the guide below.

The latest update finally fixes one of Windows’ oldest problems

Windows 10 Anniversary Update
There's a long list of reasons why you should probably download the Windows 10 Anniversary Update: better Cortana, the new Windows Ink, or just the long list of bug and security fixes. But if all that doesn't do it for you, how about a long-needed fix to the way Windows handles licenses? Starting with the Anniversary Update, Windows 10 now contains an "Activation Troubleshooter," which lets you associate your copy of Windows with a Microsoft account, rather than tying it to the physical computer hardware. That noise you hear in the background? It's everyone who has ever built their own PC crying with joy.
