  • Minecraft's Notch revealed in behind-the-scenes tale

    By Elizabeth Heichler | 27 November, 2013 15:52

    Among the many new and improved technologies promoted by Apple, one of the most attractive has been the "Retina display."

    By Simon Bisson | 10 October, 2014 21:36

    It's been nearly a week since Microsoft announced that it will follow Windows 8.1 with Windows 10 -- and released its Technical Preview so that those interested could take a first look at the new operating system.
