Windows 9 Preview Date: Sept. 30?
Bounty Offered for Oculus Rift Bugs
Feds OK IBM-Lenovo x86 Server Deal
Glass Adds Voice Access to Contacts
Foursquare: All Customer Experience
Microsoft appears to be wasting no time moving on from the disastrous launch of Windows 8 by announcing key features of its successor -- codename "Threshold" -- on September 30.
Coders who find bugs in software for the Oculus Rift VR immersive headset could receive a reward of at least $500 under Facebook's White Hat bounty program. Facebook acquired Oculus in March.
IBM and Lenovo are celebrating U.S. approval of their x86-based server deal, having cleared some major security hurdles. The deal makes Lenovo a major player for enterprise data centers.
The latest update to Google Glass will let users access their top 20 phone contacts with voice commands alone. A user can then choose a phone call, Google hangouts, e-mail or text messaging.
As Facebook, Yelp and other services adopted similar check-in features, Foursquare gradually lost what made it special. So it branched out to become a Yelp-like local recommendations service.
