Enhance Your Television Experience with IntoNow by Yahoo!

 

Yahoo! has dropped another app into the Android Market today with the release of the television-centric IntoNow.  Ever walk into someone's living room and wonder what show they were watching?  IntoNow will tell you the name of the show, the episode title and synopsis, cast info, and more details from any show from TV over the last five years.  We just tried this with a few shows on our DVR and it recognized every single one, even stuff from just last night.  By the way, Storage Wars was fantastic as always.

A simple press of the green button shows the app listening to the TV, much like Shazam or SoundHound does for music.  Once identified, it gives users the ability to share results over Facebook, twitter, search IMDb for additional information, and much more.  Follow friends to see what they are watching, leave comments, add shows and movies to your Netflix DVD Queue/Instant Queue.

Simply put, this is one of those apps that "wow" you.  Try it a few times and watch how incredible the system is and how much cooler your TV experience gets!  IntoNow is free to download and works on all devices running Android 2.1 or higher.

  • Features of IntoNow include:
  • Identify live TV, or anything that’s run on TV in the last five years, from your television, computer or mobile device.
  • Get full episode and cast information.
  • Receive notifications when your friends are watching the same episode or show.
  • One-click access to IMDb so you can learn more.
  • Add new friends using Facebook, Twitter, or “search by name.”
  • Discover new shows by exploring what other friends are watching
  • Receive notifications when friends are watching the same episode / show
  • Comment on what friends are watching – within the app, or on Facebook and Twitter
  • Add shows and movies to Netflix DVD Queue or Instant Queue with a single tap
  • Find out all the details, ratings, previews and more from the best source available on the web – IMDb

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.

Microsoft Reportedly Replacing Outlook.com With Office 365

Microsoft might be thinking about replacing the technology and user interface of Outlook.com with Office 365 if a new report is to be believed. Apparently the company will be migrating all Outlook.com users to Office 365 at some point later this year. Office 365 brings other services as well which include Outlook Web Access. The question that surely must be on everyone’s mind is that why is Microsoft doing this? According to The Verge the reason behind this migration is to make sure that Microsoft Outlook, Exchange and Office 365 platforms are perfectly aligned. In favor of keeping things consistent Microsoft is going to go ahead and add the consumer Outlook.com to the mix as well. There has been speculation previously about impending major user interface changes for Outlook.com, Microsoft’s general manager of Office Apps Rob Lefferts suspected that much. It’s worth nothing that Microsoft hasn’t updated its consumer email service for quite a few months and it even showed the door to G…
