When it rains, it pours. Blizzard became the latest game developer to announce a delay to 2010. In this case, for its long-awaited PC strategy game Starcraft 2.

In a press release, Blizzard announced that the game would not be ready for release by the end of 2009 due to online gaming service Battle.net. "The upgraded Battle.net is an integral part of the StarCraft II experience and will be an essential part of all of our games moving forward." Blizzard stated in a press release. "This extra development time will be critical to help us realise our vision for the service."

Starcraft 2 is the latest video game to miss its 2009 release date, joining BioShock 2 and a swag of Ubisoft titles.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
