Microsoft's Cortana Officially Announced for Android and iOS

May 26, 2015 - 9:14 AM - by dgstorm

This morning, Microsoft officially announced Cortana will be coming to Android and iOS. It's a brilliant move by Microsoft in a string of brilliant moves since the leadership changeover occurred. The personal digital assistant will obviously be in direct competition to both Siri and Google Now. The main difference will now be that you can get Cortana as an app for any mobile device.

Microsoft didn't share a specific time-frame for release, but left it with a vague "later this year." Cortana offer several of the same features you can find on Google Now or Siri, including contextually-aware reminders, routing and mapping, weather and traffic, sports scores, and more. When she launches, not all of Cortana's Windows 10 features will be immediately available for Android and iOS. This includes features toggling settings, opening apps or using the "Hey Cortana" hands-free options.

Windows 10 itself will include a free "Phone Companion" app which will do various things, including syncing up your devices with your PC and helping you install Cortana on other devices. You can check out more regarding the Windows 10 companion app in the video above.

Asus Zenfone 2 Finally Arriving to US via Amazon & Newegg

May 18, 2015 - 3:12 PM - by dgstorm

This is exactly Transformer news, but since it is Asus news, we thought it worth sharing here.

Even though the Asus Zenfone 2 was first announced back in January at CES, it is only just now being released to the US market via online retailers. There will be two versions of the device which will be sold unlocked to be used on nearly any carrier, and they are remarkably powerful and affordable. Here's the breakdown:

Asus Zenfone 2 (2GB RAM version & 16GB Storage) = $199.99 Unlocked
  • 5.5-inch FHD (1080p) display (which accounts for 72% of the phone’s front) - with Gorilla Glass 3
  • 1.8GHz Z3560
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB Storage
  • A microSD slot
  • 3,000mAh battery with quick charging (60% in 39 mins)
  • 13MP rear camera
  • 5MP front camera
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

Asus Zenfone 2 (4GB RAM version & 64GB Storage) = $299.99 Unlocked
  • 5.5-inch FHD (1080p) display (which accounts for 72% of the phone’s front) - with Gorilla Glass 3
  • 2.3GHz Intel Z3580
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB Storage
  • A microSD slot
  • 3,000mAh battery with quick charging (60% in 39 mins)
  • 13MP rear camera
  • 5MP front camera
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

The Asus Zenfone 2 will go on sale in the US tomorrow at Amazon, Newegg, B&H Photo, and Groupon. This seems like a pretty significant device for this small of a price. What do you guys think?
