Microsoft's First Windows 8.1 Smartphone: The Nokia Lumia 635

TheStreet (July 15, 2014) — The Nokia Lumia 635 is a successor to 2013's super-popular Lumia 620 model. This new handset is an improvement in nearly every way. Microsoft's first release has a great-looking 4.5-inch touchscreen, a speedy quad-core Qualcomm 400 processor, a new, squared-off design and its the first device to run on Windows Phone 8.1. The new operating system improves many things, most important of which were the long-standing complaints about short battery life. When put to the test, the new Windows phone provided more than a day of heavy use on a full charge. There is also Cortana. Think of it as Microsoft's version of the "OK Google" or Siri.

Microsoft Ends Support for Windows XP, Leaves ATMs Vulnerable

TheStreet (Apr. 8, 2014) — In what's being called the death of Windows XP, Microsoft will no longer provide support for the operating system beginning today. Without Microsoft's security updates, computers running on XP will be left vulnerable to viruses and cyber attacks. That includes many of the nation's ATMs and small businesses still running on Windows XP. Microsoft is advising that XP users upgrade their current PC to run on Windows 8.1 if possible. If not, Microsoft encourages users to shop for a new computer. Video provided by TheStreet
