Hiding inside the latest code for Windows 10 are clues towards new hardware from Microsoft. Codenamed Andromeda, and requiring tweaks in the Windows 10 UI, is Redmond finally ready to release a commercial Courier device to challenge Apple's iPad? While Microsoft has teased a new class of devices at Build 2018 it is never clear what the status of Microsoft’s rumoured dual-screen “Surface Phone” project is, which until its actual release will be in the uncertain quantum state of being both alive and dead.
Siri, Alexa, Cortana and their growing list of peers are designed to serve — and so far, almost without exception, they're designed to be female. As the voice wars heat up and the giants of Silicon Valley race to get their assistants in every home and pocket, the ever-present female subordinate is sending a bad message. Siri, Alexa, Cortana and their growing list of peers are designed to serve.
2) We’ve talked about the shock-risk developing in Europe. A coalition government forming in Italy, with an “Italy first” approach to the social and economic agenda, has created some flight of Italian bond market capital toward safety.

It creates leverage for the third largest economy in the European Union (excluding Britain).
The best part of Destiny 2's Warmind expansion has little to do with Warmind itself. It's the exotic pass and masterwork system.
It was not exactly smooth sailing for Epic’s first attempt at “Close Encounters,” a new Fortnite: Battle Royale limited time mode where players had only jetpacks and shotguns. Players were not terribly amused with being yanked around, and many didn’t get a chance to play Close Encounters at all. “Sky bases” refer to ultra-high buildings that players can make to battle each other way up in the air.
Bill Gates isn’t one for light beach reads. Well, there was this romantic novel in his 2014 summer reading list, but that’s been the exception in a string of lists that included recommendations for 2015, 2016 and 2017. Let’s get the fattest one out of the way first — 684 pages! But then Leonardo had such a wide range of interests, and Gates, who has long been fascinated by the Renaissance inventor/scientist/painter/sculptor, says he has struggled to find one book that sums him up.

Gamers could be one step closer to getting their hands on a relaunch of the Nintendo 64. The Japanese video game giant filed for a trademark of an image of a Nintendo 64 controller, indicating that a mini N64 could be in the works. Nintendo appears to have cornered the market on retro and modern gaming, with its newest console, The Switch, becoming the fastest-selling gaming console of all time in 2017.

In Escalation Protocol, Bungie and Vicarious Visions have created a potentially great event that they don’t seem to understand at all. While I hoped that “This Week At Bungie” yesterday would shed some light on upcoming fixes to Escalation Protocol, it appears Bungie is sticking to its guns. “Escalation Protocol was designed to be a high-difficulty endgame activity for a max-level, three-player fireteam,” said lead designer Jacob Benton.
A couple of weeks ago, I pointed out three compelling Artificial Intelligence (AI) stocks you may not have even known about. There are certainly more than three such artificial intelligence prospects though. Most investors fully understand that Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) makes the hardware that powers most AI applications while International Business Machines Corporation (NYSE:IBM) is arguably doing the most to put artificial intelligence to practical use.

Satya Nadella, chief executive of Microsoft, seems like the type of CEO who would practice meditation religiously. In interviews and public appearances, he projects a calm, thoughtful vibe, is forever espousing the benefits of empathy and compassion, and often cautions people against the hazards of a “fixed mindset.” But in a recent podcast, we learned…
