You can earn these Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris rewards from October 23 to 27
by Asher Madan
Every week, Destiny 2 hosts a Trials of Osiris event where teams of three compete for access to The Lighthouse. The Lighthouse promises Pinnacle rewards that boost you closer to the current Power Level cap.
The player vs. player competition also grants other items if you get three, five, or seven wins. However, you'll have to get seven wins in a row, without a loss, if you want to grab the Pinnacle gear from The Lighthouse. You can take a look at the Trials of Osiris rewards from October 23 to 27 below.
Three wins: The Scholar legendary scout rifle Five wins: Exile's Curse legendary fusion rifle Seven wins: Mark of the Exile legendary armor Flawless: Legs of the Exile legendary armor Trials of Osiris starts at 1 PM EDT on Friday and lasts until 1 PM EDT on Tuesday. You can use the Passage of Mercy from Saint-14 because it forgives one loss if you're aiming for Flawless. If you manage to get seven wins in a row, you'll have to manually select The Lighthouse location displayed in the Crucible menu to obtain the Pinnacle reward. This involves jumping across a few platforms and opening the chest where Saint-14 and Osiris are standing.

Xbox Live issue preventing Xbox One and Windows 10 users from launching their games [Update]
by Abhay Venkatesh
If you were looking to play some games today, heading into the weekend, and fired up a game on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC only to find that you are unable to access it, you’re not alone. Xbox Support just acknowledged on Twitter that it is aware of an issue with users being unable to access games due to some issues with Xbox Live. The company is actively investigating the issue.
Depending on some users’ reports on Twitter, it looks like trying to launch games returns a "The person who bought this needs to sign in" message, which likely is due to some authentication issues with Xbox Live. The status page for the service notes that there are issues with ‘Purchase and Content Usage’ that affects launching games or apps. The problem is affecting Xbox One and Windows 10 devices. There is no word on a possible ETA for the restoration of the service.
Those interested can keep an eye on Twitter or the Xbox Live Status page for updates for more information. Additionally, you can also choose to request for a notification by signing in on the status page and having the site send an Xbox Live notification or text message.
Update 1: The support account has posted an update on Twitter noting that users should now be able to access their games. However, the status page still notes problems with buying "downloadable" items and launching games.
Update 2: The Xbox Live Status page has also been updated to reflect that all the issues have been fixed.

Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 20241.1005 without any changes
by Rich Woods
Two days after Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 20241 to the Dev channel, it's releasing a cumulative update. The new build number is 20241.1005, and according to Microsoft, it's sole reason for existence is to test the servicing pipelines. According to the blog post, there are no fixes.
This is the third cumulative update in the Dev channel in less than two weeks, and all of them have been simply to test the servicing pipeline. This is a normal practice, of course, because Microsoft does have to be able to service its updates. It doesn't seem like something that would be quite as necessary in the Dev channel, being that the Dev channel is strictly for the rs_prerelease branch.
Of course, this could also mean that the firm is prepping a version for the Beta channel. While the Dev channel isn't tied to a specific release, the Beta channel is. Being that the Windows 10 October 2020 Update, or version 20H2, was released earlier this week, something new should be coming to the Beta channel soon.
It's unclear what's coming though, because there have been rumors that 21H1 has been canceled in favor of the Windows 10X RTM, something that was originally supposed to happen alongside 20H2 before there were delays. It's also possible that there might still be a 21H1 update, although it could be more similar to the enablement package strategy that we've seen from 20H2 and 19H2. we should find out soon.
The Surface Duo is already $200 off at the Microsoft Store
by João Carrasqueira
Microsoft's highly-anticipated dual-screen Android phone finally released last month, and much to the dismay of some fans, it came with a high $1,399 price tag. That can be a bit hard to swallow considering the phone is using some less than stellar internals, like a Snapdragon 855 chipset without 5G support and just 6GB of RAM.
If you've been holding out for a deal on the Surface Duo, today might be your day. Over on the Microsoft Store, the Surface Duo is on sale for $200 below its usual price, which means it now starts at slightly more reasonable $1,199 for the 128GB model. The 256GB variant is also discounted to by $200, so it costs $1,399.
In addition to the Snapdragon 855 chipset and 6GB of RAM, the specs of the Surface Duo include a 3,577mAh battery and a single 11MP camera that serves as both a rear- and front-facing camera depending on the device's posture. Evidently, it has two 5.6-inch AMOLED screens with Surface Pen support, and they add up to an 8.1-inch display in the typical 3:2 aspect ratio of Surface devices. The Surface Duo is a very thin device, with each half being just 4.8mm thin.
You can buy the Surface Duo from the Microsoft Store here. Best Buy also has a $200 discount on the phone without activation.
