It's a date! Microsoft hardware event set for May 2. Looks like they won't announce a new Surface Pro or Surface Phone. The news and some hints about what to expect. Hold your breath: the Creators Update is shipping. Paul's review: The only thing creative about this thing is its name. RS3 is expected in late 2017. But is it too much to expect customers to install two major feature updates in one year? YES! Project Scorpio deemed technologically superior. Call of Duty: Black Ops II is now available on Xbox One via Backward Compatibility. Minecraft Marketplace is coming to Windows 10 and Mobile. The end of Vista (Yay!)
