Twitter kills QuickBar from its iOS app

Twitter has just updated its iOS app, and the biggest change that version 3.3.3 brings is something many users have asked for -- the removal of the (in)famous dickQuickBar.

Google +1 finally unveiled, probably not what you expected it to be

It's a big day for Google, what with the announcement that Kansas City (not that Kansas City, but the other one that's actually in Kansas) has been selected to be the lucky town to get wired up with Google Fiber -- but that's not all they've gone public with today.

Mac OS X 10.6.7 now available, fixes MacBook Pro issues and many bugs

Apple has just released Mac OS X 10.6.7. As its version number implies, this is a minor software update, even more so than 10.6.6 which at least ushered the Mac App Store into the world. However, 10.6.7 does apparently fix many issues that people who have bought the newest MacBook Pros have encountered, and as such it's a recommended update for all early 2011 MacBook Pro models. The update...

First look at Google Chrome OS: 'Nothing but the Web'

The rumors are true: Google's big Chrome event today was all about Chrome OS.
