Google+ iPhone App Gets An Update With Search & Improved Photo Uploading [News]

 

Google+ for iPhone has received a nice little update. This update helps bring in some features that were previously only available on the computer version of the social network. The major feature included in this update is the ability to search. You can use the search to find people or specific posts. The new search box will appear right at the top of the screen, making it easy to get access to and use. Simply type in what you are looking for, select either posts or people and click “Search.”

The second feature is improvements to their photo uploading. Now, users can upload full resolution photos from their phone. Previously, the application would decrease the resolution of the photos, and while this wasn’t as noticeable from the device, it was very noticeable when viewing the photos on a computer. Thankfully, that won’t be a problem anymore.

The last feature update is the inclusion of +1 for photos. If you see a photo you like, you can publicly +1 it right from the application. I’m not sure why this feature wasn’t included in the first place, but it’s good to see it there now.

As usual, this update also includes some unnamed performance improvements and bug fixes. As is the case with most updates, no one actually knows what those improvements are.

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.
