Supposedly, Windows 9 will be a free upgrade for all existing owners of Windows 8. We are reporting this as a rumor, even though the source of the intel claims it has been confirmed, because Microsoft themselves have yet to confirm it publicly. Here's a quote with the details,
We will keep an eye out for any solid corroboration of this. Sound off if you are using Windows 8 and will be one of the lucky folks to get Windows 9 for free.
According to Diantoro, the Windows 9 upgrade will be available free of charge to all existing Windows 8 users once itís released. Apparently, users will be able to easily install the Windows 9 update after downloading it from Microsoft, which is how Appleís OS X updates have been rolled out to Macs for a few years now. For what itís worth, some of the recent Windows 9 leaks did say that Microsoft already has a tool in place that will allow users to easily perform software updates.
Itís not clear whether other Windows users who are on older versions of the OS will get any other special offers, and actual prices for Windows 9 have yet to be revealed. Microsoft is reportedly interested in moving many people from the older, and no longer supported, Windows XP and offering Windows 9 as a free download might be a great incentive for some.

The above image is from Microsoft's opening of their retail store in Boston.
Have you heard of the famous Apple flagship store at Fifth Avenue in New York? It will soon be joined by its "bestest buddy ever!" Microsoft officially confirmed plans to build their own flagship Microsoft retail store at Fifth Avenue in New York as well. Here's a quote from Microsoft's press statement,
They didn't specify when it will be open, but it looks like they will begin the process very soon. What do you think of this move from masters of Windows?
Today, I am pleased to confirm we have signed a lease to open a flagship store at 677 Fifth Avenue in New York City. As our first flagship store, it will serve as the centerpiece of our Microsoft Stores experience. This is a goal we’ve had since day one – we were only waiting for the right location. And now we have it. Our Fifth Avenue location will be much more than just a Microsoft Store. In addition to retail, there will be experiential space for Microsoft as a company to further engage with our customers and partners in new and innovative ways. This is an important milestone for Microsoft overall, our Stores team and millions of our current customers, as well as the millions to come. We could not be more excited to join one of the most visited streets in America.

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.
Appleís 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 ďNotchĒ 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.
