RIM will continue making phones with physical keyboards

 

So far based on the alleged leaked photos we’ve seen of Blackberry 10 handsets, it appears that full touchscreen would be one of its selling features. That being said, RIM’s series of Blackberry devices have been known for their comfortable and easy to use physical keyboards, but will the company ditch that particular strategy and design in favor of full touchscreen phones like its iOS, Android and Windows Phone competition? The good news for fans of Blackberry’s physical keyboards is that no, RIM will continue pushing out devices with physical keyboards as well as devices that are fully touchscreen.

This was confirmed by Phonescoop who was at the Blackberry World event where a RIM spokesperson assured them that handsets with physical keyboards will not be abandoned. The goal is to provide users with a choice, and interestingly it was also revealed that the upcoming Blackberry 10 handset will be full touchscreen but future versions could see the inclusion of a physical keyboard, much like the Blackberry Torch.

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…

BBM Desktop is now a thing for Android BBM beta users!

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.
