Although all eyes are focused on the imminent release of the HTC One (M8) for Windows, Verizon is expected to get also get a mid-range phone dubbed the Lumia 830. The Lumia 830 goes by the codename Tesla/Superman, and as the model number suggests, it is a 2014 replacement for the aging Lumia 820.

Over at TK Tech News, a site that is making waves recently with some of their leaks (which they shamelessly pay for), a new photo reveals a Windows Phone lit up in the dark, and it is supposedly the Lumia 830 for Verizon. The image in the video is unremarkable as it could be any Windows Phone, but the phone is being sent directly to TK Tech News who will presumably do a full hands-on if it proves to be accurate.

A new project being undertaken at Microsoft Research involves turning first person videos into smooth timelapses, which Microsoft calls hyperlapses. Normally, when a first person video is sped up into a timelapse, the footage is shaky due to the constant movement. Microsoft's project aims to fix that by running the video through its algorithms to create a smoother camera path.

Pizza Hut, the American restaurant chain and one of the flagship brands of Yum! Brands, Inc., known for pizzas and side dishes is a leading affordable casual dining restaurant chain in India. After making a foray into India in 1996, the chain has now 138 dining restaurants across 38 cities in India.

Pizza Hut India has launched their official app for Windows Phone 8 devices. Unfortunately, the app is just a wrapper for Pizza Hut's mobile site, and I usually hate to report apps like that. However, the app's pretty useful and works well for what it's intended for and so, I thought of looking beyond the tacky design and lazy execution.

Do you remember getting frustrated when playing Flappy Bird? This game that has just launched on Windows Phone will also get you very frustrated. More Here Eye is about trying to get as far as possible by going through or over colored blocks. Let's see how long you can play until you decide to throw your phone against the wall.

On August 19, HTC and Microsoft are holding a press event in New York City, presumably to announce the HTC One for Windows, a new high-end phone for Verizon wireless in the US. Earlier this month, an official render was found on Verizon's servers, confirming the phone's existence.

The HTC One (M8) for Windows (the 'W8' designation may be dropped) is thought to be the same phone for Android but with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 on board instead. However, questions remain about the One for Windows's specifications and if they would be the same as the Android version or altered.

Windows Phone Central has acquired exact details about the features of the HTC One for Windows phone, and in short, there are no surprises, which is great news.

EA Access, the recently announced game subscription service from Electronic Arts that's currently an Xbox One exclusive, is an even better deal than we thought. EA's chief operating officer Peter Moore confirmed in an interview with Computer and Video Games that once a game is included in the subscription service "it stays there, it's not going to be taken out, that's a commitment we've made."

HTC has sent out press invites for an August 19th event where many are expecting to see the HTC One M8 running Windows Phone. Otherwise known as the HTC One W8.

While all of this is still speculation, some are seeing the possibilities of a 5-inch Super LCD3 Windows Phone with Gorilla Glass 3 and an aluminum house as rather enticing. But is it enough to lure you away from the sleek build of the Lumia line of Windows Phones?

One of the great customizations that Windows Phone 8.1 brings to the table is the ability to use transparent tiles and Start Screen backgrounds. OneStart is a Windows Phone 8.1 app that taps into this feature and delivers a nice range of Start Screen background options.

From creating a colorful crystal pattern to slightly blurring a photo to simply choosing a solid accent color, OneStart makes a nice first impression.

A couple of years ago, World of Rabbit - The Dig became a mini hit on Windows Phone. The game is a wonderfully animated time management game set in a world where rabbits wage an underground battle against robots.

The sequel to World of Rabbit - The Dig was released in the Windows Phone Store the other day and takes your rabbits on a high seas adventure. World of Rabbit - The Crossing shares the originals lively animations and you still have to battle those pesky robots. Just this time around you do so in an arcade styled game.

Available for low-memory devices, World of Rabbit - The Crossing compliments the original rather nicely and is a fantastic addition to the Windows Phone gaming library.
