Batman vs Superman: Ben Affleck all set with his 'Batman' script
- April 03, 2016

Pictures presents, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, a Zack Snyder film, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ". But it does kind of bug me that I can't talk about "Batman v Superman " with my friends. The casual film viewer should never trust a fanboy's assessment on anything within pop culture, but yes, there are good reasons for the negativity you've already heard. (more...)

The digital assistant will also be accessible before the lock screen. Nadella showcased improvements to Cortana and announced previews of new cloud services and toolkits designed to create intelligent bots. It's no surprise that 80% of people repeat password use. The app can guide a blind person to take a photo of the menu ('move the phone up and to the right') and then read it out to them - and rather than listing that menu, it lets them pick and choose the sections they want to ...

Well, that's because at the Build developers conference next week, Microsoft is holding a session entitled, " What's New for Tiles and Toast Notifications ". The new build brings a number of fixes to Windows 10 for PC and mobile but it does not include any new features.

Microsoft teases new Live Tiles for Windows 10
- March 28, 2016

While the past week wasn't a good one for Microsoft bots, I'm betting we hear more at Build 2016 about the Microsoft Bot Framework under development, possibly in this session . To use the app, you must log in with the Microsoft account e-mail address and the password associated with your conference registration. While you can switch to a Windows 8 start screen like interface to make them display all the time, it makes little sense doing so on desktop systems in my opinion. (more...)

When the iPhone 6 first arrived a couple of years ago, I thought it was nearly too big, but then I quickly adapted. When the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were released, they were 0.2mm thicker than the previous iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The second activation bug, which spurred Apple to stop signing iOS 9.3 for multiple products yesterday, prevents older device owners from activating their iPhones and iPads if they can't remember the Apple ID and password originally used to set up the device.
