Microsoft is giving away 10 albums in the Windows Store for free.
Some of my favorites include the debut album from the charming and talented James Bay, who is up for Best New Artist and Best Rock Album, Currents from Tame Impala which I keep on repeat and is up for Best Alternative Album, and Sound and Color from Alabama Shakes, a phenomenal live band with an album so good itís in the running for six Grammys including Album of the Year.

Gotta pour one out for the music player that never was: Zune.
According to Billboard, existing Zune owners can still use their beloved devices as basic MP3 players, but will no longer be able to stream or download music directly to their Zunes.

Minecraft has been sold to Microsoft for 2.5 billion dollars. Markus "Notch" Persson's letter announcing he is leaving the company is one of the best explanations for why I've ever read.
Iíve become a symbol. I donít want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I donít understand, that I donít want to work on, that keeps coming back to me. Iím not an entrepreneur. Iím not a CEO. Iím a nerdy computer programmer who likes to have opinions on Twitter.
