Microsoft Corporation Surface Book Is A Blow To Its OEM Partners
Microsoft Surface Book is an impressive Windows 10 laptop, but it begs us to ask the question; is the company going against its OEM partners?
Microsoft Corporation has once again taken potshots at rival Apple and its products. This time, the company is comparing its Surface Pro 4 tablet to the MacBook Air.

This year has been quite interesting for gaming and we can even say it’s a game changing year. We saw the winds of change blow at E3 2016 in which we saw Microsoft hyping up two upcoming Xbox One iterations just like Apple’s announcements of the iPhone models. What did Sony focus on at E3 2016? It focused on exclusives, most of which we may not see this year but we could see what Sony was focused on. It’s about games and delivering the best games to the consoles already out in the market, which seems like a better choice than hyping up consoles that are not even on the market yet. Now, we have already seen the launch of a new Xbox One called Xbox One S. Microsoft cut it down 40 percent in size and it’s a cute little thing we all can cozy up to.
The Xbox One may be second-placed in the console war but it’s gotten a lot better over the last few years. We have seen a number of awesome games come to the Xbox One and this year was no exception. You may have a hard task to decide which games to get this fall on the Xbox One but we have made this decision easy for you. The following three games are worth your Xbox One collection.

PCs may no longer be valued at workplaces, but the gaming world still has a great demand for them.Lenovo, exploiting the market, has unveiled two new desktops, IdeaCentre Y710 Cube and the IdeaCentre AIO Y910. They are not your typical, massive rectangle-boxes, which use up a good chunk of space; they bear a minimal form factor and design which rightly complements what they are made for: gaming.
