Twitter HTML5 web app for iPad launched

 

Twitter iPadIf you use Twitter on an iPad and you’re somehow not a fan of the native iOS app on the phone, Twitter has some good news for you. Yesterday the microblogging social network announced that it has launched the HTML5 web app version of the app for the iPad. This follows the launch of the HTML5 web app for the iPhone and iPod touch a few months ago.

The web app looks like a mix between the HTML5 mobile Twitter website and the regular Twitter desktop website. It has started rolling out yesterday and should be available to all iPad Twitter users within a week. With iOS already having a fully functional native app available, one must wonder why anybody would want to use this version of the app (no push notifications, camera integration etc). Perhaps it will get better in the future. I guess if you ever borrow a friend’s iPad to use Twitter on it, and he/she doesn’t have the app, you could use the web app for your Tweeting needs.

Visit the mobile Twitter website on your iPad to access the new HTML5 web app.

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.

BBM Desktop is now a thing for Android BBM beta users!

With BlackBerry Blend having met an arguably early demise, folks looking to use BBM on their desktop have been out of luck. That might soon change, though, as the latest BBM beta release for Android has a BBM Desktop mode.
