Instagram wasn’t removing photos and direct messages off its servers

It’s not uncommon for companies to store fre...

Slack and Atlassian strengthen their partnership with deeper integrations

A lot of “partnerships” between tech companies don’t get very far beyond a press release and maybe some half-hearted co-selling attempts.

Since then, things got pretty quiet around the collaboration between the two companies, but today the companies announced some of the dee...

Google Maps comes to Apple’s watchOS and CarPlay dashboard

Google Maps is now also available on the Apple Watch so you can get your walking, biking and driving directions right on your wrist. Don’t expect to get a full-blown Maps app on your wrist, though. The new app is mostly focused on giving you directions to know places (think home, work, etc.). To start navigating to other destinations, you still have to start on your phone and then “pick up where you left off on your watch,” Google explains. A few years ago, Google already offered a version of Ma...

Minecraft: Education Edition comes to Chromebooks

Microsoft today announced that Minecraft: Education Edition is now available on Chromebooks. Now, if you were hoping that this means that the standard Minecraft game is now available on Chromebooks, too, I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you. The Education Edition not only requires a Microsoft 365 for Education (A3 or A5) license, it’s also meant to more of an educational tool than a game, with lessons that focus on math, science, language arts, history and visual arts.

Apple goes to war with the gaming industry

Most gamers may not view Apple as a games company to the same degree that they see Sony with PlayStation or Microsoft with Xbox, but the iPhone-maker continues to uniformly drive the industry with decisions made in the Apple App Store. The company made the news a couple times late this week for App Store approvals. Once for denying a gaming app, and the other for approving one. The denial was Microsoft’s xCloud gaming app, something the Xbox folks weren’t too psyched about. Microsoft xC...
