New BlackBerry Messenger and Facebook 1.8

Both come with a list of new option and available features. Firstly BBM at a glance there is a new look to
BBM, RIM has changed the way user edit their status, add display pictures and showing user Barcodes.
RIM says bugs have been fixed to improve the overall user experience. One of the newest feature I
found was shift + del, this allows user to close conversation without pressing the BlackBerry button. All
in all what is see it just a visual overhaul of the already popular BBM app.

Facebook, it the Facebook app BlackBerry users should have always had it so much smoother the old
ones used to freeze. Updates are so smooth you don’t even notice them, the menu transition are so
much smoother than older versions. I don’t think the picture load any faster, but it’s not as painful as
on other versions. Liking, add comments and viewing comment of picture is just one click away. Overall
Facebook 1.8 is faster than the previous version. Read more about New BlackBerry Messenger and Facebook 1.8

XBOX 360 to Support USB Storage in April

Good news Xbox 360 users, as of April 6, you will be able to use flash drives to store data such as game saves, title updates, Xbox Live arcade games, demos, profiles and even install games directly to the flash media. Yup, you read that correctly, instead of installing the game to the hard drive you will be able to put it on the flash drive. Of course, just like installing the game regularly, the disk will need to be in the tray to authenticate it. Geez what’s new.

This new feature will be available through a soon to be released software update from Microsoft. The new update will allow users to create a partition of up to 16GB with the capability of connecting 2 drives simultaneously for up to 32GB of storage. The update also comes with additional memory management functions that will allow you to configure how much storage to use on the device.

Here’s a snapshot of the Memory Management Screen:
