Windows 10 build 17134 now rolling out for Insiders using HoloLens

Insiders with HoloLens are now receiving build 17134 of Redstone 4, which comes packing a few notable changes as the company finalizes this release.

HoloLens Insiders who flashed the Redstone 4 FFU are now receiving build 17134 through Windows Update that comes packing a few new changes and enhancements. Build 17134 recently rolled out for Desktop and Xbox, and is now rolling out for HoloLens too.

HoloLens has received several Redstone 4 preview builds since Microsoft released the Redstone 4 FFU for HoloLens. So far, Microsoft has not started rolling out Redstone 4 as an OTA update for those still running the Anniversary Update, and Insiders can’t opt-in to receive it early via OTA either. To get Redstone 4, you must manually flash the Redstone 4 FFU onto your device first, and then enrol into the Insider Preview Program.

What’s new in build 17134?

General changes, improvements, and fixes:
Reliability issues for exclusive apps.
Interactions while moving slates and blooming.

Bringing a wood finish to the Surface Book 2 with a Toast cover

Protecting your Surface Book 2 never looked so good with the custom Toast wood cover.

I recently reviewed the Toast wood cover for Surface Laptop. I liked it so much I was curious about adding Toast to other Surface devices, and, just as importantly, what were those other wood options (Ash, Bamboo) like?

Enter in the Ash Toast wood cover for the Surface Book 2 15-inch! How was it and what hilarious popular movie reference did I choose for the custom etching? You’ll have to watch my quick video review and read on to find out!

Instagram for Windows 10 Mobile once again available from the Microsoft Store

Instagram follows the lead of a number of other high profile apps by dropping support for Windows 10 Mobile.

Updated April 19, 2018: Well, that didn’t take long. Instagram is available for Windows 10 Mobile once again. However, it appears to be an older version of the app than is available for PC, which likely means it won’t receive new features going forward. Still, it’s good that the app remains available for Windows phone holdouts. The original story follows.

Instagram is no longer available for Windows 10 Mobile from the Microsoft Store. …

Surviving Mars ‘Opportunity’ update adds new passages and storage options on Xbox One and PC

Surviving Mars is about to get even more content soon.

Surviving Mars is a colony builder which launched on Xbox One and PC on March 15, 2018. Unlike creating sprawling cities on Earth, the game is all about colonizing Mars and surviving its challenges. It’s more of a survival builder than a traditional Cities: Skylines-like experience. According to developer Haemimont Games, Surviving Mars is a “focused game about creating interconnected systems and testing them against the threats of a hostile environment.”

How to set up the Astro Gaming Mixamp to mix PC and console audio

The Astro Gaming Mixamp is a really great piece of kit if you’re a streamer in particular. Here’s how you get set up with your console and PC audio being mixed together.

There’s one part of the Astro Gaming A40 TR headset that really stands out: the Mixamp. This little box that Astro includes with some of its headsets might be just the thing you’ve been looking for and don’t even know it.

I’d long wanted a way to have all my console audio mixed with all my PC audio with no latency issues in either direction. That’s where the Mixamp comes — it allows you to do things like use Discord or Skype for your party chat, while still hearing everything that’s happening in your console games and get the benefit of virtual surround sound.

Astro has a couple of different versions, one geared towards the Xbox One and one for PS4. In both cases, the Mixamp basic setup is the same, and both console versions work with the PC.

Battlezone brings arcade tank warfare to Xbox One soon

Battlezone is finally coming to Xbox One after its PC and PlayStation VR debut.

Battlezone is a first-person arcade tank combat game originally developed by Atari back in 1980. It’s regarded as a cult franchise by many gamers around the world. Many months ago, a new installment was released by Rebellion, but it was exclusive to PC and PlayStation VR. Luckily, that’s about to change very soon!

Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 vs. HP Spectre x360 15: AMD graphics and Intel CPUs

Big Ultrabooks, big power.

HP’s Spectre x360 lineup has proven itself as one of the finest 2-in-1 Ultrabooks on the market, but it doesn’t exist without some competition. Whereas Dell’s XPS lineup was for a couple of years strictly a clamshell notebook series, there are now 2-in-1 options for both the XPS 13 and XPS 15. Let’s take a look at the larger Dell laptop and see how well it compares to the tried and true (and refreshed for 2018!) Spectre x360 15.

Microsoft’s refocusing on the cloud will have personal and far-reaching impacts

For many Microsoft watchers, the company’s cloud focus has set it on a course toward inevitable irrelevance. That’s a profoundly misguided assessment.

Microsoft fans are painfully aware of the company’s repeated failures and seeming illogical decisions in the consumer’s space. Microsoft Zune, Groove, Windows Phone, Kinect, Kin and more were all canceled for reasons ranging from failure to catch on in the consumer space to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s admission of abandoning consumers to pursue “the next shiny thing”.

Microsoft seems to follow a pattern of retreating from the highly visible consumer space ruled by rivals. This has made Microsoft seem wholly uninterested in the vibrant and diverse world of personal computing dominated by smartphones, mobile apps and a growing ambient computing platform led by smart speakers like Amazon’s Echo….

Repay your debt to the devil and grab this $9 Mugman Funko Pop from Cuphead

Let’s make a deal…

Right now, you can pick up the Mugman Funko Pop figure inspired by the game Cuphead for just $8.85. While the game’s tagline may say “Don’t Deal With The Devil,” luckily this offer comes via Amazon so you should be pretty safe. This saves you over $2 off the regular price of this figure too, and you don’t have to sell your soul as compensation or anything like that.

Since you seem to be on the hunt for Cuphead Pop figures, you might also want to grab Cuphead himself, The Devil. or King Dice. You could also pick up Legendary Ghost for just $7….

How to get a perfect fit from PlayStation VR

Without a good fit on your head your PlayStation VR experience won’t be too enjoyable.

Despite it’s somewhat odd shape, the PlayStation VR headset is extremely comfortable. It’s fairly lightweight and designed so that the weight it does have is spread evenly between the back and front of the head. It’s unlike other headsets like HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, which strap on in more of a ‘ski mask’ fashion.

But that doesn’t mean you can just jump in and everything is hunky dory. Central to your overall enjoyment is being comfortable in the headset and that it’s focused properly. The moving parts on PlayStation VR link comfort and focus together, so here’s what you need to know to get the best of both.

How to adjust the PlayStation VR

There are two buttons relating to the adjustment of the headset. One on the rear of the headband and the focus adjust button on the bottom right-hand corner of the visor. The headband has elasticity to it, but when putting the headset on the best thing…

Every smart home device that works with Cortana

Looking to have Cortana make your home a little smarter? These are the products that’ll help you do just that.

Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant are both much more established in the market, but Microsoft’s Cortana is gradually growing. Of course, Cortana is much more than just a smart home assistant, so in some areas it has the leg up on Alexa in particular.

Cortana is also platform agnostic. You can interact with it on Windows 10, iOS and Android, so it really doesn’t matter what your preference is — try using Google Assistant or Apple Siri on your Windows 10 PC.

Cortana’s only real drawback is the limited availability of smart home features. Right now, if you’re not in North America, you’re pretty much out of luck. But if you are, here’s all the awesome stuff you can use.

Intel’s stopping development of its Vaunt smart glasses

Image credit – The Verge

The entire New Devices Group behind Vaunt is also being shut down.

This past February, you probably saw The Verge’s hands-on look at Intel’s Vaunt smart glasses. Vaunt was the latest project being developed by Intel’s New Devices Group, but on Wednesday, April 18, Intel announced that it was shutting down the entire group.

In an email sent to CNBC, Intel gave the following statement –

Intel is continuously working on new technologies and experiences. Not all of these develop into a product we choose to take to market. The Superlight project [Vaunt] is a great example where Intel developed truly differentiated, consumer augmented reality glasses. We are going to take a disciplined approach as we keep inventing and exploring new technologies, which will sometimes require tough choices when market dynamics don’t support further investment….

The 10 Windows 10 apps I use every day

App expert Sean Endicott gets to play with all sorts of applications — here are the ten he uses every day.

Reviewing apps for Windows Central has opened my eyes to a vast number of apps, and I’m happy to say that many of them have made their way into my everyday workflow. I’ve delved into dozens and dozens of apps here on Windows Central and there are a few that have stood out. From getting work done to kicking back and relaxing, there are apps that I’ve ended up using every single day.

Lounging around

My laptop is primarily a work machine, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy browsing the web and getting my fix of social media. When I’m relaxing around the house or travelling, these are the apps that I use to veg out.

Microsoft Edge
