One word: Momentum. AIIn the wake of Microsoft AI reorg (a NeXT-style takeover), a key Microsoft exec says no and steps aside, will likely leave the company Microsoft Teams is gaining new AI capabilities because, duh, of course it isDesigner and Copilot are coming to the Microsoft 365 mobile app - Two more checkmarks for that grid of Copilot capabilitiesOur developer show schedule is complete: Apple to host WWDC 2024 in June, following Google I/O and Build in MaySamsung spreads Galaxy A1 to more devices starting tomorrow in the US XboxIt's finally happening: Diablo IV will be the first Activision Blizzard game on Xbox Game Pass when it goes live tomorrow.Phil Spencer says Windows is wrong for gaming handhelds, thinks an Xbox would be better.Xbox is testing mouse and keyboard support for Cloud Gaming.
