  • Windows app install limit increases to 81 devices starting October 9th

    Windows app install limit increases to 81 devices starting October 9th

    Windows users rejoice: the days of only being able to install apps on five different devices will soon be over. Starting October 9th, apps purchased with a single Windows Store account will be sharable among up to 81 devices. If you recall, we learned back at Build that Microsoft would be increasing the app roaming limit, but today’s announcement clarifies some key details nonetheless. Says the company in a blog post: “The change we’re introducing will reduce the friction that most active customers have in being able to access their favorite apps from any device, and will give developers additional opportunities to monetize.” This of course means one other thing: you’re going to need a bigger backpack.

  • French agency may slap Google with a €300,000 fine for privacy violations

    Google has once again found itself in the hot seat over its data practices, and this time, a French agency is sounding the alarm. Earlier today, France’s National Commission on Computing and Freedom (CNIL) threatened Google with a €300,000 fine due to the company’s lack of compliance with a June decision aimed at protecting users’ private data. Previously, Google was given three months to address CNIL’s concerns about centralized data collection that lumps together information from Youtube, Gmail and searches and transparency about how such data was put to use. Now, the clock is up, and France isn’t fooling around. While formal sanctioning is a lengthy process that won’t be resolved for several months, the country’s stance is considered aggressive, even if the fine is relatively modest. Google, however, doesn’t seem phased. Company spokesperson Al Verney said, “Our privacy policy respects European law and allows us to create simpler, more effective services.”

  • Bang & Olufsen promises 'second-to-none' experience from new wireless speaker technology

    Wireless speakers still aren’t usually the first choice of those primarily concerned with sound quality, but high-end manufacturer Bang & Olufsen is setting out to change that perception with its latest offering. Announced at the CEDIA conference this week, the company’s new wireless speaker platform promises to deliver 24-bit, uncompressed audio to either a pair of speakers or a full 7.1 surround setup. To do that, the platform employs the WiSA open standard, which operates in the 5.2-5.8 GHz range, along with some more proprietary tech from B&O and Summit Semiconductor. The end result of that, the company says, is not only speakers that provide a “second-to-none multi-channel wireless experience,” but ones that are compatible with any WiSA-compliant device. The company isn’t quite ready to show off any new speakers based on the new platform just yet, though; it’s saving that announcement for late October, when a new set of “Immaculate Wireless Sound” speakers is set to debut.
