  Using Edge instead of Chrome will add hours of extra battery life
Time: 17:22 EST/22:22 GMT | News Source: The Verge | Posted By: Erick Cordero

Using Edge instead of Chrome will add hours of extra battery life According to company tests, Microsoft's browser even beats Opera's battery saver mode.

It's no big secret that Google's Chrome browser is a bit of a battery hog. The native browsers on both Windows and macOS (Edge and Safari) are widely reported to outlast Google's offering. In its latest campaign, Microsoft is quantifying this difference: in a test that cycles through some common sites including Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia, and Amazon, Microsoft's latest browser lasted 7 hours and 22 minutes on a Surface Book system. Chrome lasted just 4 hours and 19 minutes.

  Xbox One gamers quizzed about possible digital trade-ins
Time: 12:31 EST/17:31 GMT | News Source: Blogging Stocks | Posted By: Byron Hinson

icrosoft is reportedly investigating the possibility of removing one of the few yet major disadvantages of digitally distributed media: the killing of the second-hand market. Prior to the launch of the Xbox One, Microsoft had envisioned a world where all software was locked to a single console. In exchange for not having to place a physical disc in the optical drive of the Xbox One and the ability to download a temporary copy of the game to play when visiting friends, the company explained at the time, all discs would be a one-time consumable purchase - something its rival Sony mocked by pointing out that the ability to sell on a game you no longer want is a major advantage of physical media. Backlash to the concept of an always-on internet-connected digital rights management (DRM) system that would render games unplayable if your Xbox One couldn't communicate with Microsoft's servers saw the plans scrapped prior to launch, and now the company is reportedly looking to go the other way and allow gamers to trade in their digital copies for store credit.

At the Free Software Foundation’s LibrePlanet 2016 conference, Edward Snowden credited free software with enabling him to blow the whistle about government surveillance. Speaking via video link from Russia, the former NSA contractor said that “what happened in 2013 couldn’t have happened without free software”. But as well as indicating his preference for free, open source software, Snowden revealed that he refused to use Microsoft software because he “couldn’t be sure” that there weren’t backdoors built in.

  Microsoft changes its mind -- older Lumias will not get Windows 10 Mobile
Time: 12:28 EST/17:28 GMT | News Source: BetaNews | Posted By: Byron Hinson

The Windows 10 Mobile rollout is a major screwup. Microsoft had promised to kick it off by the end of last year, but existing smartphones only started to receive a software update last week. Microsoft had also promised to support all Lumias that arrived since Windows Phone 8's debut, but, when the rollout finally started, only a limited number of smartphones were targeted. What's more, Microsoft now says that it has no plans to support the remaining Lumia handsets in "a second wave", leaving many of its fans and customers, who have been eagerly waiting for Windows 10 Mobile to finally arrive, officially stuck on Windows Phone 8.1.
