Microsoft's next mobile device (possibly) revealed: a foldable Surface device patent has the Microsoft fanbase excited. Microsoft is finally adding e-books to Windows Store/Windows 10 (maybe). Microsoft ships another massive Creators Update build to Insiders - themes are coming to the Store "soon." We don't know much about Game Mode. Surface Studio got its first firmware update. Paul reviews Surface Dial. A little corporate intrigue: Qi Lu goes to Baidu. A coming Xbox One system update will allegedly speed Dashboard performance, but we've heard that one before. PlayStation 4 outsold Xbox One over the holidays in the US, despite continuous Xbox One sales from the Black Friday weekend through the end of the year.
