Rogers, Bell and TELUS BlackBerry Q10's updated to OS 10.1.0.1720

Rogers, Bell and TELUS BlackBerry Q10's updated to OS 10.1.0.1720

Although the OS has been floating around in various forms for the past couple of weeks now, it looks to have finally gone official across the board in Canada for the BlackBerry Q10. Confirmed to be arriving on Rogers, Bell and TELUS devices folks who check for updates should see that software version 10.1.0.273 is available. Oddly enough, if you check your device you may find that it's already on this 'software version' but that doesn't mean you should dismiss the update.

In fact, you should download it because even though the software version is the same, the OS inside is not. Unless you've installed a leak or ran a customized autoloader, most BlackBerry Q10's in Canada should be running OS 10.1.0.1483 but with this download, even though the software version will remain unchanged, you'll end up being on OS 10.1.0.1720.

We realize a good lot of you might have already had this show up but if not, now is a good time to check for updates. The update received on my Q10 came in at 127MB, sound off in the comments if you weren't seeing it before but have now had it appear.

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.
The end of HomeGroup

BBM Desktop is now a thing for Android BBM beta users!

With BlackBerry Blend having met an arguably early demise, folks looking to use BBM on their desktop have been out of luck. That might soon change, though, as the latest BBM beta release for Android has a BBM Desktop mode.
