Welcome back to another edition of Weekend Reading, where youâll get stories on the worldwide release of a much anticipated âHaloâ collection on Xbox One, the latest addition to the Lumia line of Windows Phone devices and the story of a man with Down Syndrome who empowers students with disabilities through technology.
âHalo: The Master Chief Collectionâ is available now for Xbox One, making it the first time ever that Master Chiefâs entire story is on one console. It includes a re-mastered âHalo 2: Anniversary,â along with âHalo: Combat Evolved Anniversary,â âHalo 3,â âHalo 4,â a new digital series, âHalo: Nightfallâ and access to the âHalo 5: Guardians Beta.â To coincide with theÂ debutÂ of Master ChiefÂ on Xbox One, the freeÂ Halo ChannelÂ is now available from the Windows Store. Also, sales of Xbox One have âskyrocketedâ since the Xbox Oneâs new price took effect earlier this month and since the release of new bundles and blockbuster game titles.
The Lumia 535, dubbed the â5x5x5â smartphone, comes with a 5-inch screen,Â 5-megapixel front-facing wide-angle camera and 5-megapixel rear camera. It also includes Microsoft experiences such as Skype and OneNote. A 1.2 GHz quad-core processor powers the Lumia 535, which includes 1GB RAM and 8GB of memory. If you need more, slide in a microSD card, with support up to 128GB, or useÂ 15GB of free OneDriveÂ storage to store your photos and documents.

There, he teaches students with disabilities how to use Microsoft software like Word, PowerPoint and Paint.
