We've been waiting to hear from Microsoft about a launch date for Visual Studio 2013 for some time and this week we finally got an answer. The company has revealed it will hold a virtual launch event for the software development tool on November 13th.
While Microsoft is promoting that date as the official release for the software, ZDNet.com reports that MSDN subscribers can download the RTM version on October 18th, the same day Windows 8.1 launches. Visual Studio 2013 will go on sale via volume licensing customers on November 1st and from retail resellers sometime soon after that date, though nothing specific was announced.

In a post on the Next at Microsoft blog, it states:
BlackBerry is currently in the middle of a transition that will eventually turn it back into a private company, if all goes according to plan. However, the development team at the smartphone company is still working on some concepts for the future, and several of them were shown this week at the BlackBerry Jam Asia event.
One of those concepts is something that might please BlackBerry 10 smartphone owners who also have a Windows notebook or desktop. As shown in a video posted on YouTube, the BlackBerry team have created a way to project the user interface of a BlackBerry Z10 onto a Windows 7 desktop. This will allow people to catch messages sent on the BBM network on a Windows PC, and then reply by using the desktop app.
Microsoft yesterday acknowledged yet another problem with its Sept. 10 updates, confirming that one of those fixes broke Office 2010 Starter Edition by changing the file associations of already-created documents.
"After installing this update, some users have reported they are unable to open files by double-clicking them, that the file type icons have changed, and that they must go to the application to open files," Microsoft's Office team said in a company blog post Wednesday.
