Carriers Start Rolling Out BlackBerry OS 10.1.0.4537 Maintenance Release

Carriers Start Rolling Out BlackBerry OS 10.1.0.4537 Maintenance Release

BlackBerryZ10-lifestyle3

BlackBerry just announced that starting today they have begun the rollout for the BlackBerry 10.1 Maintenance Release. This brings us to v10.1.0.4537 which is starting to roll out in Asia Pacific, Canada, and EMEA starting today and continuing into Latin America in mid August on most carriers. Sadly the US is STARTING to get it by the end of the summer. In other words Verizon is going to get it sometime in 2015 so hopefully the leaks continue.

Either way the update is a nice one with the following high level improvements:

BlackBerry Hub
New enhancements designed help you stay organized and in control of all your conversations:

• Quickly move between messages – Use a simple gesture to quickly move to the last or next message without having to return to the message list

• Jump to the last unread message – If you have a BlackBerry Q10 Pressing the 'u' key in the BlackBerry Hub will take you to the last unread message

• Email synchronization – ActiveSync and IMAP email users can adjust syncing preferences to keep emails on their BlackBerry smartphone for an unlimited time period

BlackBerry World
Search improvements help you find the apps, games and multimedia content you're looking for. When you find that app – our new wish list feature helps you keep track of apps you want to download. Plus, this software update will automatically update your favorite apps like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to the most recent versions.

BlackBerry Balance
Manage work and personal conversations by letting you split out your work and personal accounts in to different views within the BlackBerry Hub.**

Check out the announcement here. BlackBerry is getting some serious egg on their face with these staggered global rollouts. Verizon FINALLY updated their users to a stable OS this Friday and already they are behind the ball. They really need to find a way to roll out OS updates globally within a reasonable timeframe especially when the OS update is mostly bug fixes and small improvements. (three to six months is not reasonable)

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…

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.

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
