Enter Windows 8, Stage Left [Weekly Recap]

This week on XDA TV, SassiBoB takes the recapital reigns to deliver the sad, so sad news that she is leaving the Weekly Recap to pursue bigger opportunities. And as much as that might cause you to pound your fists on the floor and cry in agony, she musters the strength to recap this week’s news, such as AdamOutler’s release of the Unbrickable Mod for the Samsung Vibrant, and Mike1986’s work to turn the HTC Sensation into the HTC Sensation XE. And in an adorable attempt to rant with the best of them, Bob explains why she thinks Microsoft’s Windows 8 is important to the future of tablets and smartphones, and thus why the addition of the Windows 8 forums on XDA-Developers is an excellent step forward.

Microsoft To Invest in Cyanogen’s Future OS War?

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems.
