We heard rumors that RIM was working on a wireless keyboard case for the BlackBerry PlayBook back in April of last year. Since then they have been very quiet on that front though I have been keeping an eye out on it. I was sent a slide deck by one of our sources that told me it is now going out to BlackBerry distributors and should probably be available soon. My guess is it will coincide with the PlayBook OS 2.0 launch.

We also have more details on how the new BlackBerry Mini Keyboard works with the PlayBook. Here is a breakdown of the features listed:

  • Both a keyboard and a touchpad
  • Can last up to 30 days on a charge
  • Comes with a case that folds over your PlayBook
  • Multitouch touchpad with one finger left click and two finger right click (for remote desktop apps)
  • Mouse scrolling with two fingers on the touchpad
  • Charges via MicroUSB

Hopefully we will get a launch date and pricing soon! Check out all the slide deck for the BlackBerry Mini Keyboard below:

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…

Microsoft Reportedly Replacing Outlook.com With Office 365

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

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.
The end of HomeGroup
