Managing Notifications in Windows 8

Windows 8’s new app platform provides an integrated notification system for Modern apps. Windows 8-style apps can use several different types of notifications — traditional toast notifications, lock screen notifications, and live tiles. All of these can be managed, whether you want to disable an app’s notifications, allow notifications only for certain email accounts, or temporarily silence notifications. Unfortunately, Windows 8 doesn’t include a notification center that shows a history of your notifications in one place.

5 Games You Can Play For Over 100 Hours – That’s Value!

One of the many traits unique to video games is the sheer volume of entertainment a game can provide.

These games are so enthralling they can ruin report cards, strain marriages and make you want to call in sick for work – consider yourself warned!

The Vita Still Lives – 5 Incredible Games Shown At E3

E3 may have come and gone over a month ago, but there is one thing that happened at the giant press event that I don’t feel got the attention it deserved: the range of Vita games shown off. Sony kind of had them tucked away in the back corner of their booth. Obviously, the main focus for Sony was getting its PlayStation 4 in front of as many people as possible, but I can’t help but feel like it dropped the ball with the lack of attention it gave its Vita.
