YouTube For iOS Gets Send To TV Feature With Xbox 360, PS3, Smart TV Support

Google introduced its Send to TV function with its YouTube Android application this past November, although it was only possible to perform the feature on Google TV set-top-boxes. Over the following weeks, native YouTube applications on game consoles and Smart TVs supported the feature, and today, iOS users can finally get in on the action as the official YouTube application has received the Send to TV” function. The Send to TV function currently supports the Xbox 360, PS3 and Smart TVs that have a YouTube application available to it. If you’re asking where’s the support for the Wii U, we don’t think that’ll happen any time soon considering how the Wii U’s gamepad can interact with the console in a similar way.

Windows 9 to be released November 2014?

We do not know a lot about the operating system that is coming after Windows 8. It has been rumored for a while that Microsoft wants to reduce the time span between operating system releases considerable, and one of the technologies that got mentioned in this regard over and over again is Windows Blue. As it stands now, Windows Blue does not seem to be Windows 9, and while none of this has been confirmed officially, it appears as if we are going to see a release of Windows Blue this year. It is interesting to note that Microsoft is keeping the tight-lipped approach about future products after the departure of Steve Sinofsky. If rumors turn out to be true, Windows Blue will be a free update for Windows 8 users coming this August. Information about Windows Blue were posted on a Chinese forum. The main points posted there are: No major UI changes, which means no start menu, no changes to start screen / desktop interface. Lower power consumption. Better performance, downsized Kernel. S…

BlackBerry World v4.2.1.109 rolling out to some BlackBerry Z10 owners

BlackBerry World v4.2.1.109 rolling out to some BlackBerry Z10 owners:

Taking a look through the CrackBerry forums and on Twitter, it's looking as though some BlackBerry Z10 owners have an update to BlackBerry World appearing on their devices. The noted version shows as with the change log simply stating improved battery life and bug fixes.
As it appears now, the update isn't showing for everyone and in fact, it actually errors out on some devices leading me to believe it's likely still processing through. Either way, if you're a BlackBerry Z10 owner then go ahead and check for updates. In the meantime, we'll be keeping our eye on this for a more widespread roll out and update the post when necessary.

Apple releases iOS 6.1.2 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, fixes Exchange calendar bug

Apple releases iOS 6.1.2 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, fixes Exchange calendar bug:

Apple has just released iOS 6.1.2, their second minor point update, and as promised it fixes a bug that's caused network activity problems for Exchange calendar users.
iOS 6.1 was released on January 28 with Siri movie ticket purchases in the U.S., and increased LTE support internationally. iOS 6.1.1 was released on February 11, but was exclusive to the iPhone 4S, and fixed 3G network connectivity problems.
iOS 6.1.2 doesn't claim to fix the other, highly-publicized iOS bug -- a passcode bypass Apple previously said would be addressed in a future update.
A separate iOS 6.1.1 beta was released to developers on February 6, mostly focused on Maps improvements for Japan. That update is still awaiting release will likely be re-numbered.
If you've been experiencing the Exchange calendar issue, let me know how the update works for you.

Microsoft brings out of preview, begins shutting down Hotmail

Microsoft brings out of preview, begins shutting down Hotmail:
It seems there was a point to Microsoft's (MSFT) anti-Gmail campaign after all: It's meant to coincide with the launch of, the webmail alternative that Microsoft has been offering as a preview for the past several months. Microsoft on Tuesday announced that it was taking Outlook out of preview and was starting the process of transitioning its current Hotmail users over to the new system. Microsoft promises that Hotmail users will experience no disruptions in service and that "everything from their email address, password, messages, folders, contacts, rules, vacation replies, etc. will stay the same, with no disruption in service." The company also says that Outlook has garnered more than 60 million active users in the past six months, thus making it the "world’s fastest growing email service."
