Screenshots-000005
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 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.
