Windows 10 Twitter app updated

Twitter increased the character limit for each tweet to 280 back in November 2017, but the Windows 10 application was still restricted to 140.

They have corrected this yesterday by releasing Version 6.0 which is also apparently a PWA (Progressive Web App) which, if you have alerts enabled might have been obvious as it informs you that a login via Microsoft Edge has just been completed.

While this was the biggest request from users in the Feedback hub, it did have other issues. Live Tiles are a big part of Windows 10 apps but Twitter previously only actually showed tweets and images from tweets (both of which made things slightly more interactive and pretty) if you were logged out. If you were logged in it only showed you notifications even if you have read and dismissed them on other devices. You would have to go into the app, read the notification in there, while having the start menu open and it would then go back its default blue live tile.

The update today does not have any live tile activity if you are logged in or out, it also seems to inform you "By using Twitter's services you agree to our Cookie Use. We and our partners operate globally and use cookies, including for analytics, rationalisation, and ads." - even if you dismiss it, this notification returns each time you open the app.

Overall an improvement and nice to know it hasn't been abandoned, hopefully there are future enhancements forthcoming, there are very few interesting Windows 10 apps to populate the Start Menu so the most popular really need to put the effort in.

First HTC U12+ information leaks out

The very first information about HTC's 2018 smartphone, code named the HTC Imagine, have leaked onto the internet courtesy of Evan Blass from Venture Beat and as expected, combined with previous information received, it is shaping up to be a real animal.

At this point, we have only got a low quality render but it does show the front and back sides and along with that dual cameras on both the back and the front.

Information previously leaked suggests that the device will come with the Snapdragon 845 (par for the course this year), along with a 6 inch screen. 6GB of RAM, Oreo on board as expected and a larger battery than previous years. Other information suggests that this will be HTC's only flagship of the year, but that has been said before and still refreshed versions have been released.

HTC have obviously been struggling of late, but their Pixel 2 design was highly successful which led to the team behind that moving over to Google directly, so it remains to be seen what the long term impacts of that will be and if this is the start of something new, or another final nail in the coffin.

Driver enhancements, driver optimizations, and operating system features in driver versions after Release 390 will not be incorporated back into Release 390 or earlier versions.

Windows 7 now has a Service Pack 2 (but don’t call it that)

  • 9,364

Single package combines five years of updates into a single patch.

Anyone who's installed Windows 7 any time in the last, oh, five years or so probably didn't enjoy the experience very much. Service Pack 1 for the operating system was released in 2011, meaning that a fresh install has five years of individual patches to download and install. Typically, this means multiple trips to Windows Update and multiple reboots in order to get the system fully up-to-date, and it is a process that is at best tedious, typically leading one to wonder why, at the very least, it cannot pull down all the updates at once and apply them with just a single reboot.

The answer to that particular question will, unfortunately, remain a mystery, but Microsoft did today announce a change that will greatly reduce the pain of this process. The company has published a "convenience rollup" for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (and Windows Server 2008 R2), which in a single package contains all the updates, both security and non-security, released since the Service Pack, up through April 2016. Installing the rollup will perform five years of patching in one shot.

In other words, it performs a very similar role to what Windows 7 Service Pack 2 would have done, if only Windows 7 Service Pack 2 were to exist. It's not quite the same as a Service Pack—it still requires Service Pack 1 to be installed, and the system will still report that it is running Service Pack 1—but for most intents and purposes, that won't matter. Microsoft will also support injecting this rollup into Windows 7 Service Pack 1 system images and install media.
