RIM Possibly Changing Co-Chairmen CEO’s With New Chair

 

Barbara Stymiest

There has been a ton of pressure on RIM and their board to shake things up this past year and it is continuing into 2012. Currently RIM’s Co-CEO’s Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie are both chairmen of the RIM board. Shareholders requested to change this up awhile back but instead agreed to an inquiry with a later decision. That decision has a deadline of January 31st so we should be hearing more soon. The current rumor out of the Financial Post is that RIM is planning on announcing a new independent chairman Barbara Stymiest who has been on RIM’s board since 2007. She is one of the seven on the RIM board who have been examining the boards structure and looking at possible changes.

Either way we will probably be hearing soon on what is coming from RIM’s board. From what we have heard so far RIM is intensifying its focus on BB10 but 2012 is a key year for them. What do you think?

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.
