Bing lesson plans help students more effectively search online and practice critical thinking

43

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.

Platform-adventure game 'Stick it to the Man' sticks out on Xbox One

25

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!

Age of Wind 3, take to the high seas from your Windows Phone

19

Age of Wind 3 is an action/adventure game for your Windows Phone that reminds me of a scaled back version of Sid Meier's Pirates! The game has more cartoonish graphics, lacks some of the side games (sword play, dancing, land battles, etc.) than Pirates! but the gaming concept comes close.

With Age of Wind 3 you sail the Caribbean traveling to over 35 ports of call, take on hundreds of quests, buy and trade goods, recruit sailors, build up your fleet and, as you would guess, battle pirates. Age of Wind 3 also includes Facebook integration where you can battle your Facebook friends on the high seas.

Satya Nadella said to visit China in September amid antitrust concerns

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.

Switching from a Lumia to the HTC One for Windows? Here are the apps you may (or may not) miss

290

The HTC One M8 for Windows, currently only on Verizon, is expected to get a wider release in the coming weeks and months, including on AT&T in the US. As a result, a few of you are at least contemplating jumping from your Lumia to this new flagship Windows Phone, which looks to be the only one for the next few months. The hardware is certainly compelling and – spoiler alert – so far I am categorically enjoying using it as my daily driver.

However, you may be wondering what you lose by switching over in terms of those Nokia apps. I'll break it down for you.
