[New App] Microsoft Releases Office 365 Admin App So IT Administrators Can Keep Tabs On Service Health And Status Updates

Microsoft Office isn't what it used to be. Now instead of plopping down a sizable upfront payment for software you could use indefinitely, customers commit to paying a monthly fee. Yet either way, every company needs at least one person who knows how to get the software running and whose job it is to ensure that things stay that way.

Latest Yelp Update Lets Users Search For A Specific Phrase Within Reviews

You're in a restaurant and want to know about its chicken. You could ask the waiter, but considering they're an employee, you can only believe what they're saying but so much.

Android's lock screen hasn't really changed since 4.2, but app developers keep coming up with new ways to wow us. Case in point: Cover.

But unlike TouchWiz or Sense, Cover automatically learns which apps you use at what times, and it comes with a ton of impressive UI features.

Last night, Google started a slow rollout of the new Maps with version 7.5. Since the previous version was 7.4, we knew there had to be some key features that prompted the update - it couldn't just be a bug fixer. After thoroughly examining the UI, I was unable to find anything new.
