That new capability is still under development for an unspecified date on AT&T's road map. But, along with other enhancements announced on Wednesday with Version 2.0 of Toggle, it could make the service into a broader platform for remote work. Toggle 1.0 was announced last October for Android devices. Now it is set to ship for Apple iOS in the next few weeks and for BlackBerry and Windows Phone by the end of the year.

Twitter Finally Ditches “50+”, New and Old Tweets Now Show Exact Counts Of Retweets and Favorites

Posted by TechCrunch
Tweets past, present, and future now show their exact number of retweets and favorites instead of showing “50+” if they pass that count — a move that could promote vanity and competition on Twitter. Since the change is applied retroactively, you can see a tweet about stopping polio from Bill Gates last year got�1,178 retweets and 119 favorites, and yes, all Justin Bieber had to do was tweet “New York City. #BELIEVE” this week to score 22,276 retweets.

Target Practice

Posted by TechCrunch
Apple’s WWDC keynote had a different rhythm befitting the post Jobs post Facebook IPO world we’re in. Days after Larry Ellison’s wooden capitulation to the Cloud, the tech press could be forgiven for the pedestrian way they consumed the news.
