Guess they should have tested the update a bit longer

Xbox One units entering a black screen of death state following February Update

xboxone-featuredThe Xbox One has just had its first update this month and it seems not everything is going to plan. Owners of the One who have updated to the latest patch are reporting that their consoles are entering a black screen of death state when attempting to go back to the home screen. This issue also persists after a full power cycle of the unit.

Xbox Support has a temporary fix out right now, and that’s to hold in the power button for 10 seconds. Presumably, Microsoft will fix this large issue at some point in the future.

With cool new features

Nokia’s Black update begins worldwide rollout

nokiablackFrom the lowly Lumia 52x to the Lumia 1020, all of Nokia’s Windows Phone range will get Nokia Black starting today for the Lumia 1020 and 925 and for the other devices in the coming weeks.

The Black update brings along a new Glance screen, support for Bluetooth 4.0 LE and the Nokia Camera app, although some editing features are limited to 1GB devices and only the 1020 will be allowed to save images in RAW format. Nokia Beamer will also be brought along for the ride for 1GB devices only, and Storyteller is also coming. And then there’s a feature which I certainly didn’t expect – app folders. The Black update gives you the ability to put various apps into folders, much like iOS. This feature appears to be Nokia-specific, so don’t expect it on your HTC 8X or ATIV S.

And it's still not the latest Android

Sony pushes Android 4.3 for Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra

xperiaz1Owners of the Sony Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra can finally upgrade to… the last release of Android as Sony is just now pushing out an update to Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) to those devices. The update brings along the standard assortment of performance enhancements and graphical tweaks and it’s also bringing the Social Smart Camera and all its cool AR things and filters to the Z Ultra, although you’re still limited by the 8mpix camera present in the Z Ultra.

This update also brings along new versions of Sony’s own apps and “Xperia Themes”, the latter of which Sony did not go into much detail. If you own a different Xperia device than what’s listed here, Sony says they’ll be bringing this Jelly Bean update to other devices soon.

If you don't connect to the Internet

Xbox One will do nothing on Day One

don-mattrick-xbox-one_1280.0_cinema_640.0Listen up, everyone with dial-up, satellite or cellular Internet connections – If you were looking to buy an Xbox One, you won’t be able to do a single thing with it until you download the mandatory Day One patch. That’s right, you can’t even play games on day one until you download this patch.

Part of this supposedly has to do with how apps and features are still being worked on even at this very moment. They won’t be ready to launch the console with an up-to-date OS on its launch date. However, given the fact that the competition will let you play games without their Day One patch makes Microsoft’s announcement on the Xbox just a bit inexcusable.

It's about time

Apple finally updates the Mac Pro

newmacproThe Mac Pro hasn’t been updated since 2010 and it was showing its age until WWDC today. What you see above is the back of the new Mac Pro.

The new Mac Pro has been vastly redesigned from the old Mac Pro – which has used the same styling since the G5 tower – in fact, it’s no longer a rectangle, but instead a cylinder. You read that right, the new Mac Pro is a cylinder. It’s a very unusual design however it does make for a much smaller form factor.

The new Mac Pro comes with a 12-core, 256-bit Intel Xeon processor and does away with mechanical hard drives altogether. The new Mac Pro will also ship with two AMD FirePro GPUs that can drive a 4k display. It also features four USB ports and six Thunderbolt 2 ports.

Pricing was not announced at this time.

iOS 6.1.3 released, fixes lock screen exploit

Last month, we brought you news that there was a security vulnerability that allowed one to bypass the lock screen on your iPhone. Later in the month, we also brought news that there was a developer build of iOS 6.1.3 that fixed this issue, as well as a few minor issues for customers over in Japan.

Today we have word that iOS 6.1.3 has been made final so you do not need a developer unlocked iDevice to use it. It fixes the lockscreen exploit (of course), adds some Maps improvements for customers in Japan and it also fixes some other “security issues.”

Also of note is that this update does patch a few of the holes used by the Evasi0n jailbreak so if you’re one from that crowd you should hold off on this update. Otherwise, check your updates and download this update – it’s available for iPhone, iPad and iPod.
