Palm Pre Plus & Pixie Plus approved for sale in Europe

Great news!!  Sources in the states are saying that both the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus are heading for the UK after both handsets won approval to be sold in Europe.

The new Palm Pre Plus has more RAM than the first Pre, and double the storage too, boasting a rather impressive 16GB compared the Pre’s 8GB.  The sliding mechanism has also been improved, so it’s much more smoother to operate.

Only a small handful of changes have been made to the Pixi Plus however, with Wi-Fi now being included.  Bonus!

Look out for more information on the arrival of Pre Plus and Pixi Plus to the UK soon!

Twitter starts Tweaking it’s Home Page


According to the Twitter blog, the Twitter home page is currently being ‘tweaked’.  

The new design is supposed to be more dynamic and will feature, amongst other things, a set of algorithmically selected top tweets that automatically appear every few seconds.

This new page will allow people to see the value of Twitter, even without an account!

Twitter say: “All of our recent changes embrace the notion that Twitter is not just for status updates anymore. It’s a network where information is exchanged and consumed at a rapid clip every second of the day”.

What do you think of the new changes??  Let us know via the comments.

Ok, so the latest (and possibly greatest?) version of the well-known Apple software has been prepped and finely tuned for all you iPhone/iPod geeks. 

iTunes 9.1 is now packing support for iPad syncing, as well as the ability to “organize and sync books you’ve downloaded from iBooks on iPad or added to your iTunes library”.  

The file size for the update is close to a hefty 100Mb…. so, put the kettle on, sit back and let it update on it’s own.  If you’ve already done it, what do you think of it so far??  Let us know via the comments.
