    Microsoft to Unveil the Future of Windows Today

    Good morning Microsoft. Today, in San Francisco, Microsoft will formally unveil what it has in store for Windows’ next version. We are only expecting a preview this morning, but, are expecting some new branding and marketing behind the name itself. The community will be rather gracious should a build land for people to play with, but, we are not keeping our fingers crossed. We are keeping our screens glued here for the latest announcements from Microsoft as they happen.

    Apple Launches Apple Pay Secure iPhone Based Payment Solution

    Today Apple introduced Apple Pay, a ground breaking mobile payments solution built into their iPhone ecosystem. The new feature uses NFC communication at checkout terminals to purchase items without the need to whip out your credit card.
