Microsoft Mistakenly Presents WhatsApp For Windows 8

Microsoft unintentionally revealed some never-before-seen Windows 8.X apps at its Worldwide Partner Conference yesterday. In a presentation given by marketing executive Tony Prophet Microsoft discussed the progress they have been making with their Windows 8 Apps and their Windows App Store. Upon the demonstration system running desktop Windows 8 Microsoft paraded apps for WhatsApp, WeChat and Pandora: three apps not seen before on Windows 8. Just as everyone started to get excited by the new apps it turns out that these apps will not be made available on the Windows 8 platform after all, they are merely Windows Phone 8 apps that Microsoft mis-presented. WhatsApp’s business head even came out to confirm it was a mistake by Microsoft and that they are not developing WhatsApp for any desktop or notebook platforms. Good job Microsoft…

ADATA Elite CE700 Qi Wireless Charging Station

Introduction


ADATA is brand synonymous with memory and storage solutions. For more than a decade they have established a strong relationship with their customers that consists of average consumers and business professionals around the world. With constant innovation and a determination to produce only high quality products that will exceed consumer expectations, ADATA will continue to be at the forefront of our culture’s technological growth.

Anyone that keeps up to date with their technology news can already see that most manufacturers are targeting the mobile device segment no matter the relevance to their core product stacks. Mobile devices have become such a critical part of our everyday lives and I for one still have a hard time fathoming how our culture was able to survive without things like email, instant messaging, or even mobile computing. We are a culture that constantly has our eyes glued to our phones and tablets to get through each day.

But how exactly are we constantly powering these devices? Traditionally the standard charge cable is the primary method of choice. But with technology constantly evolving we are always looking to improve the experiences that we have with these products. What is the obvious next step for charging your devices? Wireless charging of course. A freedom from the cluster of cables that we are so used to dealing with. That’s where ADATA comes in and brings us the Elite CE700 Qi Wireless Charging Station.

After a quick opening of the packaging you can see the the contents are pretty basic, but that’s okay because there’s not much needed to use this type of product. The box contains the user guide, micro USB charge cable, and the unit itself.
