Something to look forward to: Microsoft's next major Windows 11 release was expected for the second half of this year. Now it looks like version 22H2 is about a month away, with several new features and changes that have been undergoing testing in Insider builds. While some Windows components like the Start Menu, Task Manager, and the Taskbar are set to receive useful improvements with the 22H2 release, Microsoft is expected to roll out other enhancements as part of its "Moments" feature drop later this year. The first major feature update for Windows 11 is apparently arriving next month. According to Windows Central's Zac Bowden, there's nearly a dozen new notable additions and changes that will be accompanied by plenty of under the hood enhancements and bug fixes. In some areas, like the Start Menu and Taskbar, Microsoft is finally bringing Windows 11 up to par with the Windows 10 experience. For instance, the 22H2 update will allow users to create app folders in the Start … [Read more...] about Windows 11 22H2 feature update could arrive as soon as September 20

COLOGNE, Germany—It finally happened, a decade's worth of expectation fulfilled with a simple push of a button. Though I still can't quite believe it (and a recent delay hasn't helped) Final Fantasy XV , a game that's taken on near mythical status alongside the likes of The Last Guardian , Beyond Good and Evil 2 , and Half Life 3 , is finally being released on November 29—and I've already played it. Selecting "New Game" has never been quite as satisfying before. Unfortunately for Square Enix, FF15 is unlikely to live up to expectations. Its development has simply been too long and its predecessors too divisive to escape the crushing inevitability of a game with this much hype and history behind it. Some will welcome Square Enix's take on the modern open-world RPG. Others will lust after the linear worlds of the PlayStation-era games. There will be those for whom nothing is more satisfying than a three-hour grind through a maze-like dungeon, while others will hope … [Read more...] about hands-on: Brave new direction or just pandering to fans?
XmasRadar 2021 Det er ikke lenge til jul: her har vi samlet våre tips om hva som kan bli populære julegaver i år (opens in new tab) . Det er gått mer enn 25 år siden den første PlayStation-enheten ble lansert, men populariteten er større enn noen gang. PS5 kom på markedet i 2020, og er fremdeles nærmest utilgjengelig. Konsollene PS4 og PS4 Pro har inntil nå solgt som varmt hvetebrød. Med PS4 fikk man kostbare produksjoner som Borderlands 3 og Call of Duty: Modern Warfare sammen med spill som er eksklusive for konsollen, som Death Stranding. Det er lett å være enig i at Sony vant den generasjonens konsollkrig, og disse spillene kan du dessuten ta med deg videre til den nye konsollen. PS5 står også i en heftig konsollkrig, og der rivalen kan skilte med voldsom kraft, kan PS5 skilte med flere spennende spill ved lanseringen, blant andre «Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales», «Sackboy: A Big Adventure» og «Demon's Souls», alle fra Sony-eide utviklere, men man kan … [Read more...] about Julegavetips til PlayStation-gamere
The Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro are Samsung's latest wearables that want to be your go-to Android watch. Set for release on Aug. 26, along with the Galaxy Fold 4 and Flip 4 , they have bigger batteries, a new temperature sensor and a more durable design. But they lose the fan-favorite rotating bezel that the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic model still offers as an alternative to using a touch-sensitive rim. This year's watch comes in two variants : The Galaxy Watch 5 and a slightly larger, more rugged Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Apart from the construction, sports modes and battery capacity, they share most of the same features. So far, I haven't found that many significant differences warrant an upgrade from last year's Galaxy Watch 4 series given the software is largely unchanged and the new temperature sensor is not yet active. But the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is the more tempting proposition if you want a more durable watch with a bigger battery. With the Pixel Watch on the horizon and … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro Ongoing Review: Better Batteries, Bye Bezel
