The NFL is currently under way in the US and Microsoft is heavily involved both on the field and in the living room. The company is not only providing players and coaches with specially designed Microsoft Surfaces (with a side-line viewing system), but owners of the Xbox One are able to take full advantage of the available NFL app. Gone were the days of simply watching the sport. Now it's possible to really dive into the fantasy side of NFL. New adverts have also been released to show how everything ties together.

Earlier today, Microsoft's new Windows 10 OS took its first baby steps into the wild through the Windows Insider Program, which lets users take an early look at the OS. Previously I mentioned how you can get back the Modern Start Screen instead of the new Start Menu, something that tablet and Surface owners will want to check out.

Now, I am doing a 10-minute video tour of Windows 10, including how it looks and runs on the Surface Pro 3.

Amongst a slew of Lumia announcements in India, Microsoft also sneaked in a useful companion to use with your Lumia Windows Phones. The company launched the Microsoft Screen Sharing HD-10 accessory, a Miracast receiver with NFC support, which allows users to share their phone's content with other people through any HDMI display.

Launched at the IFA 2014 in Berlin last month, the HD-10 offers a seamless way to showcase your phone's screen in full HD on a big screen wirelessly. The possibilities are endless - from watching movies, playing games, flicking through photos, listening to music, or sharing PowerPoint presentations at the office.

Following the lead of AT&T and Sprint, Verizon Wireless will now be giving subscribers of its More Everything plans even more data, though you'll have to sign up this month to qualify. More data begins with the 12 GB plan, which will now net you a 15 GB data bucket each month, and goes all the way up to the 50 GB data plan, which through the promotion will double your data to a whopping 100 GB to consume. That's a lot of Netflix streaming to consume each month!

You know, the Xbox One controller is pretty great. It features a much superior d-pad to that of the Xbox 360's, and unparalleled rumble in the trigger buttons to boot. On the other hand, the bumper buttons are a step back from the 360's, and will never be as responsive as you'd want in a game like Killer Instinct.

A company called Console Tuner is on the case. They have engineered a USB peripheral called the Titan One that lets you use Playstation 4 controllers with the Xbox One, and vice versa. In fact, you can even use Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and pretty much any USB controller on your modern consoles. You have to admit, that sounds like an especially useful accessory.
