SwiftKey purchased by Microsoft; the app lives on

SwiftKey has been officially purchased by Microsoft. As it was speculated yesterday, an imminent purchase of the company responsible for one of the most popular keyboard apps was bound to happen.     Financial details were not disclosed but unofficial reports suggest the purchase was somewhere around $250 million. The deal itself is pretty much closed shut, but SwiftKey’s co-founders mentioned that the keyboard app will continue to be developed for iOS and Android.   Microsoft officials confirm that Swiftkey will continue to get updates. The union will help Microsoft’s own Word Flow improve and it may even help in developing intelligent systems for the tech monolith.   This acquisition lines in with Microsoft’s desire to grab the most influential and talented developers on the market. We will have ton wait and see how things work in the future.       Source: AndroidPolice  

Microsoft Lumia phone to launch in February – possibly the last one

The future of Microsoft Lumia phones is almost in-existent at the moment, since Microsoft announced it will be introducing a different and more effective smartphone portfolio. But before an age is over, we may still have two devices to see, and they will be announced in February.       Windows Central reports that the company is going to unveil a Lumia 650 phone next month. This device is supposedly aimed at the business market, and the specs are nothing to drool over either.   Lumia 650 specs:   5-inch display 1GB of RAM 8GB storage 8MP camera.   The specs and numbering indicate that the smartphone is a budget Windows 10 device. Reports suggest that this is the last Lumia phone and that the focus on Microsoft devices will be placed on Surface phones next. Microsoft is reportedly keeping a consistency to its design across lines, but we are not sure if Surface will be a total rebrand for Lumia or if it is a different project altogether at this point.   Source: The Verge  

Cyanogen Inc updates OnePlus One to 12.1.1 with Microsoft Cortana

Cyanogen Inc is finally rolling out Cyanogen OS 12.1.1 for the OnePlus One, but it is not just an update. Noooooo. This is the first OS version where you get built-in Microsoft Cortana support. The sad part is that this feature will only be allowed in the US for now.     Microsoft released Cortana a little while ago to some smartphones and, shortly after, it removed “the always listening” feature. On OnePlus One, things will be different because the VI will be pretty much embedded everywhere. The app on the OnePlus One will present the “Hey Cortana” hotword along with support for quiet mode, alarms and voice activated setting toggles. Cyanogen Inc. mentions that embedding Cortana into the OS will only allow the software to develop more in the future.   If you have a OnePlus One device, you should see the update in the system menu. Keep in mind that this is a Lollipop-based update as the “12” in the version number indicates. Cortana support will be limited to US users for now. If Cortana is not to your liking, you can always uninstall it after you update.   Source: Cyanogen  

[CES 2016] Fitbit Blaze smart fitness watch launches in March

Fitbit Blaze is the newest iteration in the best fitness tracker line on the market. It was launched a few days ago at CES Las Vegas and it appears to raise the bar even further when it comes to creating the perfect wearable. All the better because now, Apple, Pebble, Microsoft and Misfit or Jawbone have entered the market and are trying to take over everyone.       Fitbit has been working on fitness trackers and watch-like devices for years now, but the first real smartwatch fitness band that came out of there is Blaze. It looks more like an Apple Watch or an Asus Zenwatch than anything.   Don’t get overexcited yet, Fitbit Blaze will not be an Android Wear device; however, you do get tons of personal trainers and other sporty apps. For starters, FitStar personal trainer workout will not be missing (you get 8 minute warm-up sessions, 7 minute workouts and 10 minute ab sessions). You also get software aimed at hiking, tracking, biking, running, yoga and lifting weights.   Fitbit Blaze uses your phone’s GPS to track your moves and it has a built-in heart rate monitor. Its battery should last up to five days before needing another charge. The device also allows users to receive calls and it manages music.       Design-wise, Blaze is not the prettiest child in the courtyard, but not the ugliest one either. It has large bezels, almost as large as its screen ratio, and a logo underneath the display. You can swap […]

Microsoft display dock announced – connect your phone to a desktop!

The Microsoft display dock was announced yesterday and it appears that your mobile gadget world may become easier to manage. The Continuum dock, as the device was first named, is a hardware adapter that will let you use your smartphone as a desktop Windows PC complete with peripherals such as keyboards, mice and a huge desktop if you want.     The new Microsoft display dock has three USB ports, including a USB Type-C one, and HDMI and a DisplayPort. You can use a USB drive with it if you want. The Continuum dock looks just like a Windows 10 PC software-wise, and it has a tweaked task-bar plus a signal bar at the top where you can also check your battery and time info. Source: the Verge
