Business Insider reports that Microsoft general manager for Surface, Ryan Gavin, has told them that the iPad Pro was a “clear example” of Apple following Microsoft and not the other way round.
Gavin conceded that Microsoft does keep an eye on its competition, but as far as actually assembling the Surface hardware is concerned, “we don’t really look at Apple.”

Speaking during Microsoft’s Studio Space event at London Tech Week, Gavin said that Microsoft’s main reason for creating the Surface Laptop was because “our customers wanted it.”

In a post on the Windows blog Microsoft Devices corporate vice president Panos Panay celebrated the arrival of Surface Laptop and the new Surface Pro, which are now available to buy in 25 markets worldwide, as well as increased availability for Surface Studio around the world.

“People are already falling in love with Surface Laptop,” said Panay, and he’s not wrong, as the laptop has received some excellent reviews, including The Telegraph calling it “the best-looking Windows laptop,” and The Verge saying that it was “worth the wait.”

Panay also took the opportunity to announce that all four Surface Laptop colours are now available in 17 new markets, with Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, and Graphite Gold joining Platinum as options...

With the E3 gaming expo taking place this week in Los Angeles there have been lots of exiting announcements about forthcoming PC games, in particular Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, which was announced exclusively for Windows 10, with a closed beta due to start very soon that can be signed up for at AgeOfEmpires.com.

Age of Empires first appeared on PC back in 1997, and along the way the much-loved series has explored human civilisation up until Colonial America. It feels like it’s been away for far too long, so it’s great to have it back!


Perfect World and Cryptic Studios have announced today that they are currently developing a new AAA RPG based on Wizards of the Coast’s strategic card game, Magic: The Gathering, for both PC and console. As yet that’s pretty much all the information that we have on the new game, as Perfect World says that it will be releasing additional details and the game’s official title at a later date.

Massively popular strategy card game Magic: The Gathering sees players taking on the role of Planeswalkers, who are powerful mages that can travel between planes, cast spells, and summon mythical creatures. The card game has more than 20 million fans in more than 70 countries, and the forthcoming PC and console game will give them the chance to immerse themselves in the Multiverse, the world in which Magic: The Gathering is set.


Perfect World Entertainment has announced that Neverwinter: Tomb of Annihilation will be coming first to PC on July 25, ahead of release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at a later date.

The expansion sees death arriving in Faerûn via a mysterious curse, leading Neverwinter’s Harpers to head out on a large expedition to the remote land of Chult, where they will get to explore a new jungle zone, battle the undead, Yuanti, and dinosaurs, and track down the source of the death curse that has afflicted Faerûn.

The 12th Neverwinter expansion includes new content such as a Tomb of Annihilation campaign, end-game dungeon, monster hunts with Volo, a jungle adventure zone infested with dinosaurs, and the new social hub, Port Nyanzaru.

If you want to find out more about the Tomb of Annihilation storyline, you can check out the Stream of Annihilation at twitch.tv/dnd, which runs until 10 p.m. PT today, featuring lots of streamers, Hollywood...

Tech Radar reports that Microsoft has issued an apology today for accidentally releasing Windows 10 test builds before they were ready. The builds included several for mobile, and just one, numbered 16212, for PC and mobile.

What made the matter even worse was that the early builds were pushed out not just to Windows Insiders, but also to general Windows 10 users who were not part of the testing program and who had already installed the Creators Update.

Dona Sarker, software engineer at Windows and Devices Group, said “If you are not a Windows Insider, your device may have seen one of these builds offered. However, these builds will not install on devices that are not joined to the Windows Insider Program (a.k.a. ‘retail’).”

Thankfully, the unfinished PC builds are not especially damaging to the computers of anyone that might unwittingly try to install them, so nothing major to worry about there. The mobile builds are another matter,...
