BlackBerry Messenger Officially Updates to BBM 7 with Voice

BlackBerry Messenger Officially Updates to BBM 7 with Voice:
It has been no secret that BBM 7 has been in beta testing for a while now, and the biggest new feature has been BBM Voice.  BBM Voice allows for calling over wifi to your other BBM contacts.  Well, now is official, and available to anyone using BBM on a device with OS6 or higher!  There are a few more features they have added in, and you can read up on those as well as find a download link below.

Here are some other great features you’ll love in BBM 7:

  • BBM upgrade notifications – BBM will notify you when there are updates to download straight from within the app
  • BBID Synchronization – your BBM profile, Groups and Contacts are linked to your BlackBerry ID
  • 16 Additional emoticons – even more choice for those times when words just aren’t enough. Can you spot the new ones? *Drool*

Here is a nice video demo of BBM Voice for all of you who might need some help on getting started.

Update notification through App World might take up to 24 hours to show up, but a reboot sometimes speeds up the process.  Also please note, that BBM 7 also updates the BBM associationwith BlackBerry ID which will make backing up your contact list a lot easier, as well a switching devices.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

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.
