We have already had a good look at some of the new functions as well as the new apps in Microsoft’s Windows 8, and now it would appear that there will be another new feature in Windows 8 when it launches.

The guys over at I Started Something spotted something interesting in Windows 8, as you can see in the photo below there is something called ‘Missed Calls’, which would indicate that Windows 8 tablets could have the ability to make and receive calls.


It isn’t clear as yet exactly how the call feature will be build into Windows 8, whether you will be able to make calls over a mobile network, or if it will use some sort of Skype integration, considering Microsoft’s recent purchase of Skype.

Microsoft has announced that its Windows 8 Metro applications will only be available from their own Windows Store, the official name given to Microsoft’s apps store.

Following in Apple’s footsteps and taking full control over what will an won’t be sold in their store. Microsoft director Ted Dworkin explained that the Windows Store will be used to restrict Metro app distribution to ensure the software applications are secure and appropriate.


Microsoft also explained to developers that  "We will examine every application that will be submitted to us [and] we will run a virus check and a malware check on every application,”.

Which will hopefully stop the Windows Store being plagued by malicious applications laced with code and viruses which has happened in the Google Market leading to applica ... Read more »

Last week we saw a couple of different videos which gave us a good look at Microsoft’s latest version of Windows, Windows 8, and now Microsoft has released another video which give us a look at apps running on Windows 8 with their Metro UI.

The video below gives us a look at apps like photos, mail, calendar, messaging and lots more, as well as some of the built in social networking features like Facebook integration.


The apps look pretty cool from the videos, and the more we see of Windows 8 the more impressive it is, we are looking forward to seeing the final version of Windows 8, specifically on tablets as we suspect it is going to be very interesting.

We have already seen some Windows 8 running on the new Samsung Windows 8 Developer tablet, as well as running on an NVIDIA Kal-El tablet, and have even seen it running on an old Asus Eee PC netbook.

Now the guys over at Geek decided to load the Windows 8 Developer preview on to an EXOPC Slate, which you can see in the video below.


As you can see from the video Windows 8 seems to run quite a bit slower on the EXOPC Slate, not bad though considering the EXOPC slates specifications and the majority of the functions seem to work on the slate.

As well as giving Windows 8 a completely new looks with a new UI, it looks like Microsoft has also replaced the standard Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), which is usually filled with lots of text telling you what went wrong with a more, friendly version.

The photo below, from Chip Hazard shows the new BSoD, and as you can see it now comes with a sad face, and a much easier to understand message than the previous BSoD’s.

Instead of lines of code with various error message numbers, you now get search terms which you can search for on the web to find out what has cause the BSoD on your Windows 8 PC.
