    Cody Wilson, the creator of the world's first 3D printed gun, is suing the US state department over his right to keep distributing how-to instructions for the firearm. The government says "The Liberator" violates weapon trafficking rules, but Wilson says all he made was computer code, free speech. After waiting two years for a ruling, Wilson is now counter-suing.

    At an exclusive New York event showcasing new capabilities in Microsoft Office 2016, we got to see the new productivity software running on a 55-inch Surface Hub (an 84-inch model will also be available). It's a connected, multitouch-capable conference-room whiteboard replacement.

    Corporate uses of Microsoft Office 2016 have a new way to float their most important info to the top. Delve offers a Pinterest-like view of documents that are stored in OneDrive for Business or in Sites in Office 365, or that have been shared with you as attachments in emails.

    It's about a lot more than just email, but the latest version of Microsoft's venerable mail, calendar, and contact app learns what's most important to you while sweeping away the clutter.
