Microsoft Windows is now free for mobile devices under 9 inches Today is the first day of Microsoft’s Build conference and that means the company will be sharing plenty of news about the future of Windows and other Microsoft products. Earlier Microsoft not only revealed it is making several changes to the desktop version of Windows such as finally bringing back the start menu, they also announced plans to allow cross-platform compatibility between Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 modern apps. While both of these changes are pretty crucial, the most massive change Microsoft is introducing is in regards to its pricing structure for Windows. Microsoft will now let manufacturers install Windows 8.1 and the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 on devices with screens smaller than 9-inches for absolutely free. That means any manufacturer can produce a small-screened Windows tablet or any WP handset without paying a licensing fee for the OS — period. A completely free OS could really shake things up I know what you’re thinking, “but Android is already free to use.”

Project Bloks - Creating a development platform for tangible programming Edit images right in Google Slides and Drawings Posted by Brian Levee, Product Manager (Cross-posted on the Drive Blog.) Google Slides and Drawings make it easy for you to tell a story and share your ideas. And a big part of storytelling is the images you use to bring a concept to life. Now it’s even easier to get those images just right, because Slides will let you crop, apply shape masks, and add borders to your images right within your presentation. Cropping To crop an image, select it and click on the crop image icon in the toolbar. Then drag the corners to your desired crop size and hit enter to make the crop. Applying masks To crop your image to a particular shape, apply a mask from the pull-down menu next to the crop icon. There are tons of shapes, arrows and callout designs to choose from, like the diamond example below. Adding borders Add a border to your image by clicking on the line weight icon, and give it a little extra pop by changing the line color.
