  1. After Microsoft canceled the so-called Astoria project, the company began to look for other options for implementing support for Android applications in Windows 10. Microsoft moved farthest in this regard with Samsung by streaming of apps launched on a smartphone through My Phone app; but the company decided to go furthermore. The idea promoted by the Latte project is to allow the developer of Android applications to package their apps and games in the proprietary MSIX installer format. Reportedly, the project is based on the Windows Subsystem for Linux and primarily involves the p

Bill Gates Says His Preference for Android Over iPhone is Due to Pre-Installed Software Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates this week participated in his first meeting on Clubhouse, the increasingly popular invite-only conversation app, where he fielded a range of questions as part of an ongoing book tour.

  5. List trackers and permissions of all installed Android applications with Exodus Exodus is a free privacy application for Google's Android operating system that reveals the use of trackers of installed Android applications and their permissions.

  6. Android Sleep API to make sleep tracking apps more efficient There has been perhaps an overabundance of focus on activity trackers, most of them targeting, well, activities. While movement and exercise are, of course, important, they aren’t the only measures of a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is just as important, perhaps even more so these days. In an effort to help app developers and, consequently, users develop better sleeping habits, Google is launching its new Sleep API to empower better low-power sleep tracking on all Android devices. There are already a ha
  7.

  10. DuckStation is an excellent PlayStation 1 emulator for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android The PlayStation 1, Nintendo SNES, GBA, and DS are my favorite consoles of all-time because they have tons of RPGs. I remember playing WWF/WCW games, and many JRPGs on my old Windows 98 computer using ePSXe back in the 2000s. Emulation has come a long way since then; there have been many advancements, improvements and of course new emulators. DuckStation is a PSX emulator and a brilliant one at that. It comes with a QT-based GUI version and a no-GUI version.
