BlackBerry London: Leaked Image of First BBX OS Phone Appears


Is this the first smartphone running BBX, the new BlackBerry operating system RIM unveiled last month?

It is, according to both The Verge, which obtained the above photo, and BGR, which said it confirmed the photo’s authenticity with a “trusted source.”

According to The Verge, the smartphone is called the BlackBerry London and is scheduled to be released in June 2012. It comes with a TI OMAP 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The device appears to be quite large — The Verge‘s source said it was about the same size as the Galaxy SII (which has a 4.3-inch screen and is 0.33 inches thick), but is thinner than the iPhone 4.

The screen itself only hints at BBX’s interface. The slick-looking device displays a static image and is not a screenshot of the operating system in action, according to The Verge.

In official BlackBerry news, RIM announced two BlackBerry OS 7 smartphones, the BlackBerry Bold 9790 and Curve 9380, on Monday.

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 With Office 365

Microsoft might be thinking about replacing the technology and user interface of with Office 365 if a new report is to be believed. Apparently the company will be migrating all 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 to the mix as well. There has been speculation previously about impending major user interface changes for, 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…
