Benchmarking site Rightware seems to have managed to get their hands on the results of their GP benchmark for the iPhone 6, and for those about to shell out $300 for the mandatory 64 GB model the news will come as somewhat of a disappointment.
Apple’s latest 64bit monster appears to perform pretty poorly, ranking 16th in the list, just below the LG Nexus 5, and only slightly ahead of the iPhone 5S.

A couple more Windows Phone features are apparently headed to Windows 9, with signs of Wi-Fi Sense and Storage Sense showing up in the latest leaked preview builds.
Wi-Fi Sense is a feature of Windows Phone 8.1 that automatically signs users into public Wi-Fi hotspots. It can accept terms of service on the user's behalf, and fill out a phone number, name and e-mail address if required, so the user can quickly get online with little effort. Wi-Fi Sense also share network credentials with Outlook, Skype, and Facebook contacts, so they can connect to your local Wi-Fi without knowing your password.
A leak from WinFuture.de shows evidence of Wi-Fi Sense in the next version of Windows, but...

The big tech news of the day is that Microsoft has announced their plans to acquire Mojang, the software developer of the massive hit Minecraft. The folks in Redmond will pay a cool $2.5 Billion dollars to get their hands on the company and all IP associated with it, although Markus “Notch” Persson, Carl Manneh, and Jakbok Porser, (the three founders of Mojang) will be leaving the company.
Here's a quote with more of the details,
This is a very big move fro Microsoft, and displays their commitment to gamers as they build out their portfolio of hit titles and work toward the future. There is no word yet on what future projects are planned by Mojang after Microsoft takes over.
Minecraft is the top paid-for app both on Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) iOS and Google Inc's (GOOGL.O) Android systems and helped Mojang, which employs just 40 people, bring in 2.05 billion crowns ($287 million) in revenue in 2013, giving it an 896 million crown ($126 million) operating profit for the year.
Director of website Gamesbrief Nicholas Lovell described Minecraft as a hugely successful product which has "captured the imagination of pretty much everybody under the age of 15", saying the game could help Microsoft broaden its appeal.
While the Mojang team will join Microsoft studios behind global franchises such as "Halo" and "Fable", its three co-founders, who have been chased by the likes of Napster co-founder and early Facebook Inc (FB.O) investor Sean Parker, will be leaving to start new projects.
Markus Persson, co-founder of Mojang had some interesting things to say regarding the sale and his departure. Here's another quote with more info,

News of the Microsoft deal surprised some Minecraft players who know Persson, or "Notch" as he is commonly known, more for his anti-big business stance. But he explained the reasons behind the deal in a blog shortly after the deal was announced.
"As soon as this deal is finalized, I will leave Mojang and go back to doing Ludum Dares and small web experiments. If I ever accidentally make something that seems to gain traction, I'll probably abandon it immediately," Persson said in the blog posted on his Twitter feed.

In the grand scheme of marketing, it's sometimes a fine art to figure out what will spark public interest. Despite that, some decisions seem obvious, even to the untrained lay-person's eyes. One fine example of that is the new rumor that Microsoft plans to drop all names except Microsoft from their smartphones.
We already knew they would drop the Nokia name, which makes sense, but we are surprised to hear they might lose the Lumia brand name as well. Perhaps the marketing execs at Microsoft want to make a fresh break from the Lumia line. Regardless, the above pic shows off a smartphone outer casing with only the Microsoft logo emblazoned across it.
What do you think of this idea? Should Microsoft keep or get rid of the Lumia name?
