Sprint is offering a great way to save money on calls when you’re overseas

Sprint International Wi-Fi Calling

Amazing but true: Sprint really does seem to be stepping up its game when it comes to offering more value for customers. Sprint on Thursday announced that it will offer free Wi-Fi calling to customers who travel overseas and who call the United States, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands. As you might have guessed, Wi-Fi calling lets you make phone calls using your local Wi-Fi network so you don’t have to use a carrier’s cellular network. This obviously eliminates the need for international roaming and thus will save you money on roaming charges as long as you’re within range of a working Wi-Fi hotspot.

PS4 and Xbox One are fighting back against mobile and PC gaming

PS4 and Xbox One vs PC and Mobile

Over the last several years, there has been a paradigm shift in the gaming industry. Consoles, unchallenged for years as the PC market faded, slowly started to lose ground as smartphones and tablets became competent gaming platforms. Suddenly, everyone was playing games on their mobiles devices, from casual fans to hardcore gamers. Things got even more contentious when Steam hit the scene, bringing triple-A and indie developers alike back to the PC in droves.

Microsoft vows to clean up its crapware-infested Windows app store

Microsoft Windows Store Spam Apps

A recent report has revealed that the Windows app store filled with crappy apps and deceitful wannabe software that can trick the user into paying for an application that looks like the real thing. It also said Microsoft may be well aware of the situation, as the company both encouraged app developers to deliver Windows Store apps in bulk, and manually approved them. It appears Microsoft is well aware of its Windows Store problem indeed, and the company said on its Windows blog that it will finally restore order to its Windows Store.
