BlackBerry has pushed out a new update to BlackBerry Link today for both Mac and Windows. This new version fixes the issues some users were having when using BlackBerry Link to transfer data from older BlackBerrys to the BlackBerry Z10. BlackBerry also clarified that an updated version of BlackBerry 10 OS for the BlackBerry Z10 is incoming and being tested by carriers to address device switch issues.
You can download the updated BlackBerry Link here. On top of that BlackBerry reiterated their statement that they will continue offering sync support over USB to applications like Outlook though they still recommend wireless syncing if possible. Here is what they said:
On the question of a direct sync between Outlook and the BlackBerry Z10 using BlackBerry Link, this is currently in the works. and will come in two stages. In the first update, which will be available in the coming weeks, you’ll be able to perform a one way import of your contacts and calendar info from Outlook to your BlackBerry Z10. Shortly thereafter, a second update will give you full two-way USB sync of your personal information with computer applications such as Outlook
We understand the importance of this, and we are doing our best to deliver this capability to you.
On a final note, many of you have also been asking if there is any way in general to sync the BlackBerry Z10 with applications like Outlook on Windows, or Address Book on Mac OS. The answer is – yes, absolutely! And no USB cable is needed for this. The BlackBerry Z10 is an advanced smartphone that provides a wireless sync capability that was not previously supported on BlackBerry (OS 7.1 and earlier) smartphones. We encourage you to setup your BlackBerry Z10 with an email service that supports wireless synchronization. If you are interested in moving to wireless sync, here are a few links and tips that can help you out.

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…

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…
