Windows XP, Vista unsupported in Boot Camp OS X Lion

 

If you have made the jump to the latest OS X Lion version of the operating system without forking out far more than what it is worth, and are interested in running old school Windows operating systems such as the venerable Windows XP and Windows XP thanks to Boot Camp, then you are in for an unpleasant surprise. Either operating systems will not run in Boot Camp in OS X Lion at all.

This is because Apple has already dropped support for older versions of Windows, and Boot Camp will support only Windows 7 and nothing else. For those who are using Macs at home with Windows XP or Vista installed on Boot Camp, you are able to stash away the Boot Camp partition, although you can’t make the upgrade to the latest version of Boot Camp.

For those who want to retain Windows XP or Windows Vista and yet want to purchase a new Mac or make that upgrade to OS X 10.7 Lion, I’m sorry that there is no compromise at the moment. All you need to do is just make sure you have a Windows 7 installer handy.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
