The Beta version of Remix OS for PC is finally released that comes with a host of improvements, better compatibility, 50 major bug fixes and new features that makes it worth installing and trying out on your PC. Some of the enhancements include:

  • Installation on hard disk (HDD)
  • 32-bit Support
  • UEFI Boot & Legacy BIOS compatible
  • Supports over-the-air (OTA) system updates
  • Larger data space (up to 8GB for hard disk and up to 64GB for USB flash drive)
  • Faster USB boot-up

Unlike its alpha version that only supported installation on a USB flash drive, the beta version lets you install Remix OS on a hard drive or SSD, so you run it with Windows OS in a dual-boot mode. It should be noted that currently the installation tool only supports Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10, with a minimum capacity of 8GB. Before proceeding, I’d like to state that the installation process went smooth without any issues. Users installing Remix OS on PC’s internal hard disk can expect better read/write speeds and can run it alongside with Windows without the need to carry a flash drive. In this short guide, we will tell how you can easily Dual Boot Remix OS for PC Beta with Windows –

1. As we’re Dual-booting, we consider that Windows OS is already installed on your computer.

2. Download the Remix OS for PC package, this contains the Remix OS for PC ROM and Installation Tool. (Both 32-bit and 64-bit version are available)

3. Extract the .zip file package to a folder on your desktop.

4. Open the ‘Remix OS Installation Tool‘, browser and select the ROM .iso file. In Type choose ‘Hard Disk’ and in Drive choose system partition (generally ‘C’ drive) where your current Windows is installed. In our case, we installed it on a secondary formatted partition ‘D’ in dual-boot mode with Windows 7.

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…

"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…
