Facebook Shared Photo Albums Unveiled

Facebook has unveiled shared photo albums. The feature allows multiple users to upload images to one photo album on the social network. The way these albums work is that one user would create an album and will then give access to as many as 50 contributors who can share 200 photos each. Shared photo albums will make it much easier for friends or groups to share pictures from an event or an activity, up till now users could only upload photos to albums that they themselves had created.

The album's creator will have total access over the privacy of all photos. Three privacy settings can be configured for shared photo albums, public, contributors only and friends of contributors. The album creator will have the power to delete or modify all photos in a particular album, contributors will only be able to edit photos that they themselves have uploaded. The feature is not available for photo albums on Facebook Pages. Starting today, Facebook will roll out this feature to a small group of English users. Shared photo albums will then be integrated for all English users before they are expanded internationally for over one billion of Facebook's users around the globe. [Image via Mashable]

    Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

    Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


    Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

    Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

    After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli.

"Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.

    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…
