Cortana has new songs, but she can't sing them yet

It looks like Cortana is learning new songs. She has been able to sing for a while now, but asking her recently has resulted in new songs. There's a little problem, though. She doesn't actually sing them out. Instead, many of the songs are read aloud. Perhaps she's in the middle of rehearsing them? Go ahead and try asking her with your Windows Phone device. We've tried it ourselves on the Nokia Lumia 930. Watch the video!

Do you carry more than one Windows Phone?

Do you carry more than one phone? One in the left pocket and another one in the right pocket? That's a discussion going on right now at the WPCentral Off-topic lounge. Forum moderator, Guytronic, asks the question after a friend noticed him having a Lumia 635 in the right pocket and the Lumia 925 in the left. If you do carry more than one device, is it because of some sort of addiction or is it because of necessity?

Microsoft has published around 800 lesson plans on Bing since the fall of 2013. These resources enable teachers to provide tailored content to three different age groups, be it elementary, middle and high school. Four teachers worked on these lesson plans, now available for free everyday, helping students practice critical thinking skills and web searching. Essentially, Bing is attempting to make search more involving for children, as opposed to simply copy and pasting. This is all part of the Bing in the Classroom project.

After enduring a small release drought over the last couple of months, the floodgates of new Xbox One games have finally opened back up. Last week we got Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition at retail and two indie games: The Golf Club and surprise hit Fibbage to download. This week, Metro Redux Bundle hits retail while another ID@Xbox game makes its downloadable debut: Stick it to the Man from Swedish developer Zoink! Games and Ripstone Publishing (Pure Pool).

Stick it to the Man is a 2.5D platformer with clever visuals that often appear to be made out of paper. A surprisingly witty and story heavy game, players take on the role of a hapless guy who gets infested with an alien parasite. The parasite causes a giant stretchy arm to grow from his head, which can be used to swing from objects and read other characters' minds. Can your Xbox One handle such a weird and creative little game? Let our impressions and hands-on video help you decide!

Citing an unnamed source familiar with the matter, Reuters claims that Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is scheduled to visit China next month. Microsoft is currently being investigated by one of China's antitrust regulators over concerns centering on the bundling of Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player with Windows. The antitrust probe, which was launched this week by the State Administration for Industry and Commerce, followed a raid on four Microsoft offices in the country by Chinese authorities.
