Netflix Adds A ‘Just for Kids’ Section To Its iPad Application [Updates]

 

Netflix users with children and an iPad can now take control over what their children watch on the popular tablet with a new feature called “Just for Kids.” This is a place where children can sit down with the iPad and watch only videos that are tailor-made for them. No longer will parents need to worry that children are using the iPad and Netflix to catch the latest R-rated movie. Netflix recommends this content for all children 12 and under.

Not only does this update allow children to get access to content that is appropriate for them, it also introduces an incredibly simple user interface that will make it easier for children to find their favorite video content. The images on this new UI are larger, so it is easier than ever for children to pull up the latest episode of Dora The Explorer or any other child-appropriate content in Netflix’s extensive library.

Enabling this mode is easy for parents. There is a button tucked on the upper left corner of the screen. A simple tap on this button will cause the iPad to switch to the new child-friendly interface, and kids will be free to enjoy their favorite TV shows in an instant.

The app is available now for iPad 2 and New iPad users. Netflix plans to roll the app out to original iPad and Android tablet owners in the very near future, so keep your eyes peeled for that too.

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.
