Yesterday we focused on Samsung's big Galaxy S8 reveal, and it didn't disappoint. If you need to get up to speed in a hurry, we boiled the entire event down into one nine-minute video that you can watch here.
Ever since the Galaxy Note 7 recall, Samsung has been waiting to get another flagship device into its customer's hands. Now that the new Galaxy S8 family is here, we have new devices to talk about with new features like Bluetooth 5.0. Chris Velazco calls the S8+ "the most comfortable big phone I've ever held," while Sean Buckley wants everyone to pump their brakes on the hype -- it's still just a phone. But it's quite a phone, with Bixby AI, facial recognition and unlocking, and the DeX system that turns your smartphone into a desktop computer.
Microsoft finally has an official release date for its big upgrade to Windows 10: April 11th.

While we wait for the Creators Update on Windows 10, Microsoft is pushing its latest software for the Xbox One. Already available to beta testers, this version brings a faster miniguide that pops up with a single button press, plus streaming with Microsoft's Twitch competitor Beam. One thing, though, it's time to say goodbye to the picture-in-picture Snap mode.
