Fujifilm X-T1 firmware update to bring a host of AF goodies

Fujifilm's weather hardy X-T1 is more than a year old, but that doesn't mean it has gone out of fashion. Especially not after this promised update coming in late June that will bring the digital camera forward to 2015. While it promises improvements across the board, Fujifilm is making it no secret that the bulk of the update will revolve around a new autofocus system that adds two new modes, Zone and Wide/Tracking, that will let the X-T1 easily catch up even with fast moving subjects.

Microsoft will kill Patch Tuesday with Windows 10

If you’re a Windows user you likely know what Patch Tuesday is, but as with many things future generations will be scratching their heads when they hear the term. The reason is because, according to Microsoft executives, the company is killing off Patch Tuesday with the advent of Windows 10 — specifically, with the continuous stream of patches the company will introduce with it, doing away with the tradition of dropping them all on a specific day. All in all, this is good news for users.

Roku updates iOS and Android apps with voice search and more

The Roku app can do more than just toggle to the next Netflix episode, and with its latest update (for both iOS and Android) it can do even more. With the update comes Roku Feed and voice search, both of which were previously announced last month and are also now available on the current generation Rokus, including Roku TVs. Those on Windows Phone, as I’m sure they expect, will have to continue waiting for these features, as they’ll be coming on “a later date”.

Snapchat update brings Discover clips feature

Snapchat update brings Discover clips feature

Today Snapchat released updates for its iOS and Android apps, bringing both to version 9.7.0. There are a couple new features, but the most notable of the two aims to make users more aware of (or, perhaps, more inclined to use) Discover, the discovery feature the app added in the relatively recent past. Though the feature has been around since January, statistics show that it isn't being utilized very often...something Snapchat is apparently hoping to change with this newest update.

Plex gets into the beat with improved Music experience

Plex is one of the household names when it comes to setting up a personal media library that can be streamed to other devices and locations.

Amazon Instant Video update adds cellular streaming for iOS

Amazon Instant Video update adds cellular streaming for iOS

If you use your Amazon Prime membership for more than just fast, free delivery, chances are you stream TV shows and movies via Amazon Instant Video. If you’re doing so via the iOS app, we’re willing to bet you’ve noticed shortcomings. Streaming was only available over WiFi (which defeats the purpose quite a bit), and you couldn’t cast your content to Apple TV. With an update to their Instant Video app, Amazon is fixing both of those issues, so you can watch over a cellular connection (even in HD) and redirect to Apple TV.
