iPhone 5C once again rumored to be the name of Apple's rumored upcoming less expensive, more colorful iPhone

iPhone 5C is once again being rumored as the name for Apple's rumored less expensive iPhone which, if said rumors are accurate, would not only sport a plastic back but a colorful new plastic back. That's right, iPhonechromatic! This time it's Jay Yarow of Business Insider doing the reporting:

After the photos leaked, we heard from a source that the name is going to be "iPhone 5C".

Yarow says his source isn't at Apple, and that it's here-say, but here-say he's fairly confident in. Over the weekend margarine-tubs showed up in China with the name iPhone 5C on them, which didn't look like anything Apple would design or produce, but it did reflect a report from way back in January on the iPhone 5C name from iLounge.

Apple doesn't have to decide on marketing names until just before product launch, so things can and might change, but it is interesting to see the name iPhone 5C popping up more and more often.

It's not as elegant at the Mac Pro/Mac Mini, or iPad/iPad mini dynamic, but it does fit the iPhone 3G/iPhone 4S number/letter pattern. What do you think of the name?

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.
