If you have a new (and probably quite expensive) 4K HDR TV, then 4K video is amazing — it looks incredible. But to watch a 4K Blu-ray, you need a 4K Blu-ray player, which can set you back quite a few hundred dollars more than regular Blu-ray.

Microsoft jumped out ahead of Apple early this morning with a big Windows 10 event. The Xbox One, a new Surface Book or Minecraft in 3D weren't explicitly advertised, but those are some of the things we ended up seeing, including the all-in-one Surface Studio. So if you want to catch up on everything you missed, here's what you need to know.
