Apple Announces Mac OS X "Mavericks"

 

Apple on Monday announced a new version of its Mac operating system at its World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco. The newest version of Max OS X is called “Mavericks” and has three primary new features Mac users.

Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi showed off the biggest features of Mac OS X Mavericks: Finder Tabs, Tagging and Multiple Displays.

  • Finder Tabs: In Mac OS X, the finder is the primary point of contact for accessing apps and documents in the operating system. Finder Tabs brings a browser-like tab interface to Mac computers.
  • Tagging: Mac users can now “tag” documents, pictures or videos saved to their computers by topic. For instance, if you are saving pictures of your family, you can tag the pictures as “family.” Tags should make it much easier for users to search for documents and other content through the finder.
  • Multiple Displays: Mac OS X has always worked with multiple screens. Apple has just made it easier to organize your desktop across multiple displays by allow users to draw content from one screen to another without disrupting the content that is on the desktop

New features in Mac OS X Mavericks

Mavericks is the first of Apple’s Mac OS X versions to not be named after a “big cat” (such as a Mountain Lion or Leopard) that was championed by Steve Jobs. (The company joked that the last possibility was Sea Lion.) The new naming convention for Mac OS going forward will be based on "inspiring" locations in California. OS X Mavericks is due to be widely available this Fall.

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.
