Dropbox Redesign Brings New Photo Viewer and Better File Management

Dropbox Redesign Brings New Photo Viewer and Better File Management:




Dropbox has launched a major redesign, simplifying many file management tasks and bringing a new video and photo viewer.
The first thing you’ll notice in the new Dropbox UI is the action bar which lets you sort files by name, date, size and type.
Click on a file, and the action bar will get new options – for example, you can download, delete, rename, move or copy a file from there.
You can also perform these actions by right-clicking on a file, which makes Dropbox more similar to Microsoft’s Windows Explorer than ever.



Dropbox now also has a new video and photo viewer, which lets you view these types of content on your entire screen. Photos and videos (this includes Photoshop and Illustrator files) now also have thumbnails, which makes them easier to preview.
Finally, new Dropbox supports drag-and-drop, simple multiple file selections, and keyboard shortcuts (hit “?” for a full list). Dropbox search now also instantly pulls results as you type.
According to Dropbox, this redesign is only the first step in a complete overhaul of the service, with more new stuff coming in the “next few months”.

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.
The end of HomeGroup
