Windows 10 ‘Game Mode’ Will Improve PC Gaming Experience

windows-10-main
If you follow Windows-related news regularly then you might have heard that a new Windows 10 beta build was leaked online recently. The leaked build 14997 revealed that Microsoft is going to add the blue light filter feature to the next major update of its OS. The build also reveals that the company is developing a Windows 10 "Game Mode" that's going to improve the PC gaming experience.
Twitter user WalkingCat first spotted this new feature in the leaked Windows 10 beta build. It's not completely working at this point in time but it's evident that this feature will soon be available to members of the Insider program.
What the Windows 10 Game Mode does is enhance the gaming experience on PCs. It does that by minimizing the resources that apps use to virtually nothing so that more resources can be freed up and allocated to the game allowing it to run faster and smoother.
Windows hasn't had an integrated option for this but this shows that Microsoft is going to offer this feature with the next major update of the OS. It has already confirmed that the Windows 10 Creator's Update is going to be released early next year, it's very likely that the Windows 10 Game Mode feature will be included in that major update.
.@h0x0d looks like Windows will adjust its resource allocation logic (for CPU/Gfx etc.) to prioritize the "Game" when running in "Game Mode"

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…
