Apple OS X 10.8.3 Supports Windows 8 In Boot Camp

Apple OS X 10.8.3 Supports Windows 8 In Boot CampIt has been a long time in coming, and once again, just to prove the fact that good things come to those who wait, Apple has managed to reveal a new operating system update for their OS X platform in the form of the 10.8.3 update, delivering Boot Camp support at long last for the Windows 8 platform from Microsoft. Of course, other than Windows 8 support in Boot Camp, there will be a slew of other enhancements that has been thrown into the mix.
Before the 10.8.3 update for OS X, folks who have been trying to make Windows 8 run fine on OS X would have had to settle for a less elegant process, and now that there is something official from Cupertino, it makes perfect sense to grab that update, so that you can now switch between OS X and Windows 8 seamlessly, targeting the crowd that loves to have the option of dual booting their machine. It is said that the 10.8.3 update had undergone testing for approximately 3.5 months before it is deemed ripe and ready for public use, so keep your fingers crossed that there will not be any bugs to accompany this update!

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.

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.
The end of HomeGroup
