Today was a huge day for Microsoft. They just had their big Windows 10 briefing event where they gave everyone a glimpse of the future and what a glorious future it is. There certainly was quite a lot of news to talk about. Windows 10 looks like a big jump for the platform which will make many exciting changes. This goes beyond the PC to tablets, phones, games, and beyond as we’ll see. This is the start of a new generation of more personal computing. After today I can’t wait for Windows 10 to roll out. I’m sure after seeing more of the Windows 10 news you’ll feel the same way.

The Nighthawk X6 AC3200 is a beast in many respects, reflecting the heavy video streamers and online gamers who would benefit from it the most.

When LG first introduced its new smart TV platform based on webOS at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, the company made it clear that it wanted to change both the perception and purpose behind how such an interface would work.
