Play ‘Overwatch’ for free yet again this weekend

Looking to play popular team-based shooter Overwatch but don’t want to spring for the actual game? You’re in luck this weekend, then, as Blizzard’s cartoonish and charming FPS is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from September 22nd through the 25th.

This isn’t the first free weekend for the title, of course. Players have been able to blast each other up last September, the following November and just this past May. As with other free weekends, you’ll get to play with all 25 heroes across 16 maps for use in Quick Play, Custom Games and the Arcade modes. You can level up, earn loot boxes and even get some fun customization rewards. Plus, if you end up purchasing the game (a move Blizzard would love for you to perform), you get to keep all the progress you earned over the weekend, provided you use the same login when buying your own copy.

The Overwatch free weekend starts at 11:00 AM PDT/2:00 PM EDT on September 22nd, and will be available in all regions on console. For PC, only folks in the Americas, Europe and Asia (excluding Korea) will be able to play for free. You’ll need to install the game on your console or PC before playing, of course; be sure to download the Free Trial (Xbox One) or Free Weekend (PS4) version. PC players can grab the trial via the free Battle.net desktop app, as well.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
