The online retailer ShopRiteDelivers is currently selling the Xbox One console from Microsoft for a mere $299.99. This is the lowest price we have seen for a new unopened version of the console since its launch in November 2013.
The site shows that, as of this writing, there are 313 Xbox One consoles available at that price. This is just the plain version of the console, with no Kinect add-on or games bundled with it. Microsoft recently announced it was keeping its holiday price of $349 for the console which includes one with two free Assassin's Creed games bundled with the device.
While the Microsoft Band has been one of the harder products to get hold of in recent times, there's a good chance this past week has seen a whole bunch of new owners. That's because the Band went back in stock in physical Microsoft retail stores – and in many cases subsequently went out of stock again – giving more people a chance to finally grab one.
If you're one of them, or even if you've had one for a while and just want to tune up your knowledge, we've got a whole host of help and how-to videos to get you off and running with your new Microsoft Band.
The YouTube playlist below contains every Microsoft Band video that Windows Central has produced, including our initial unboxing and first impressions in case you're still on the fence about getting one. Any future Microsoft Band videos will find their way there, so bookmark the link below for a handy way to find them.
Continuum is Microsoft's fancy new way of switching between tablet and desktop mode in Windows 10 as and when the need arises, but what if you want to play around with tablet mode on your desktop PC? Well, no worries, as is often the case there's a manual way to do it so long as you know where to look.
Tablet mode will basically go fullscreen full time, removing windowed apps and turning the Start menu into the Start screen. To turn it on or off, follow these easy steps.
Or if you want to do it the short, quick way, there should be a toggle by default in the action center in the bottom right hand corner of the desktop. But, personally speaking, I've been getting some issues where the whole bottom right corner of the screen will randomly disappear, so it's definitely useful to know where both options are.
Microsoft is not quite done with Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1. Tonight, version 2.6.657.0 is live in the Store, and it looks to be a rapid-release fix for an issue affecting some users.
No other details were posted on the Xbox User Voice page, so it is safe to surmise no new features were added. In addition, seeing as this is a minor number change from 2.6.656.0 just a few days ago, this looks to be more about addressing a very specific bug for some people.
Regardless, hit the Store now and grab the update. The new version of Xbox Music is still very fresh, so give it some time if you do not see the update right away.
As we first reported would happen last week, Chase bank has removed its mobile banking app from the Windows Phone Store. People who still have the app installed on their phone will find it will no longer work after March 22.
Chase made the decision to end support for their Windows Phone app because they felt there were not enough users on Microsoft's platform. Since we first broke the news on Chase's plans, we have received a ton of emails and comments from users who are extremely upset about this decision. Perhaps the launch of Windows 10 will cause a change of heart at Chase, but at the moment, the app's removal is certainly a big shock for many Windows Phone owners.
