Apple’s ‘iPad mini’ to launch soon for $249-$299, report claims

 

iPad Mini Price Rumor

Apple’s “iPad mini,” a smaller version of the company’s popular iPad tablet, will soon launch at a price point that may send shockwaves through the industry. In line with multiple earlier reports, Chinese-language MyDrivers on Monday reported a number of details surrounding Apple’s rumored iPad mini. According to the site, Apple’s upcoming tablet will feature a 7.85-inch IGZO LCD display manufactured by Sharp and it will be as thin as Apple’s iPad 2, which is marginally thinner than the current iPad model. Then site also claims the iPad mini will cost between $249 and $299 when it launches, though it cites unnamed analysts in reporting that price range. A number of industry watchers already believe low-cost Android tablets are having trouble competing with Apple’s $400 iPad 2, so a brand new iPad priced at $300 or even lower could represent an insurmountable roadblock for Google’s great land-grab. Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White believes the iPad mini will launch this fall priced in line with MyDrivers’s report.

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.
