XWidget- Best Widget App for Windows

 

Windows 7and Vista supports desktop gadgets, but we haven’t seen too many good looking and useful widgets based for Windows. XWidgets will probably change that scenario, it is a freeware tool which brings in some useful and good looking desktop widgets to Windows. Want more? You can even edit the widgets to suit your needs and then save them to look even better. When you install the app, it comes loaded with a bunch of default widgets, but you can always use the gallery to download more.

When you open the gallery, you can see lots of new widgets available in different categories like weather, system information etc. You can download and install the widget directly from the widget browser.

Once installed, you can right click on any widget and select the edit option. This opens a designer window with the widget available for editing.

If you want to add some fun to your desktop, XWidget is probably the best way to do it. The app is supported on Windows XP or Windows 7, not sure why Vista is not listed.

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.
