Its good to be back from the on and off Jewish holidays and vacation the last few weeks. With that said RIM has been consistently updating the beta of Twitter for BlackBerry v3.2 in the Beta Zone and now it is ready for prime time. They promised that the last beta zone update was just a preview of the gold release so there should not be any changes if you have that version. Here are the highlights of the update:
  • Enhanced Tweet Screen – Twitter 3.2 gives you a quick preview of a tweet link or photo through an enhanced tweet details screen, helping you decide if you want to click for more detail. Previews capture content such as headlines, quick summary snippets as well as publisher and author details. It’s a convenient and easy way to get the gist before clicking for more detail.
  • Finding Friends Button – Check out if any of your BlackBerry contacts have recently joined Twitter by clicking the “Find Friends” button on the Welcome Screen or Profile Page. Twitter works with your BlackBerry address book and offers suggestions on people you should follow. Discovering friends has never been easier and faster.
  • Quick Follow Button – Twitter 3.2 makes it easier and faster to follow users in one click. Skip the step of clicking on profiles to follow users. Instead, simply click the Follow button and get access to more users and content. It’s that easy.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

"Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.

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…
