Quad’s Mobile Messaging App For College Groups Supports 500-Person Chats

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

A new mobile chat application targeting college students, Quad, is working to move student organizations off of email and onto smartphones for managing their group communications. Despite the popularity of mobile messaging applications, like WhatsApp, Kik, GroupMe and dozens of others, few of these can support a large number of chat participants, often capping out at 50 users in a chat, if not fewer.

Even though the majority of college students today carry smartphones, and are increasingly turning to messaging apps for their personal communications, that 50-person limitation is a deal-breaker in terms of using most messaging clients within a bigger college group, like a fraternity, sorority, an academic group, sports team, or another sort of student organization.

That’s the problem Quad set out to address starting this September when the app first launched. Today, Quad has a presence on 2,500 of the 4,500 college campuses across the…

Fly Or Die: Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

[tc_5min code=”518015625″]

In early October, we brought you our thoughts on the seven-inch Kindle Fire HDX, of which John is a huge fan.

Today we bring you the seven-incher’s big brother, the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.

In terms of Amazon’s evolution as a hardware (and specifically tablet) company, the Fire HDX 8.9 is a markedly improved device from previous generations. It’s thinner, lighter at just 13 ounces, and more powerful with a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor and improved software.

But how does it match up to the competition this holiday season?

John seems to think that this next-gen Kindle Fire has finally achieved “productivity status,” moving from a reader on steroids to a full-fledged computing device. I’m not as convinced, but I also haven’t been able to spend quite as much time with these Fire HDX tablets as him.

Would either of us save $100 and choose the HDX…

Apple Releases iOS 6.0.2 To Zap Wi-Fi Bugs, But Users Finding It Hard To Download Over-The-Air

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Apple is pushing out iOS 6.0.2, a minor update that is said to provide a possible fix for Wi-Fi issues on the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, along with other bug fixes, but it’s proving hard for users to install.

Multiple reports on Twitter, elsewhere on the web, and among our own staff find that there’s a problem connecting to Apple’s update servers over the air from iOS devices.

photo (1)
The update can’t be found on a range of devices, according to users on the iPhone 4S, 4th generation iPad, iPad mini and iPhone 5, so it it looks like this could be a very widespread problem. Chances are it’ll be resolved on Apple’s side of things soon, enough, but since the update is a relatively small one specific to the iPad mini and iPhone 5, it might be worthwhile to just hold off for a little while to let everything settle down.

Alternatively, you…

Google Would Like You To Schedule Holiday Time With Your Family Using Google+ Hangouts

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

I’ve always described Google’s social spine, Google+, as being personal rather than social. It’s a service for you to connect with people you already know, rather than being all about public sharing, like Twitter, which has its place in the world.

By personal, I mean that real connections can be made using services like Hangouts with people in your family who might be spread out all over the world. Hangouts allow you to start a “room” with people speaking over a microphone and in front of a camera, which switches when someone is talking. The campaign, called “Hang Out With The Family” helps tie together all of the services that Google has been rolling out to bring this personal experience to life.

You’ll notice that the campaign also features Wallace and Gromit, popular characters that are all over YouTube.

The Backlash Continues: Zuck’s Sis Doesn’t Seem To Like The Instagram Changes Either

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

If you haven’t heard by now, yesterday Instagramannounced an update to its Terms of Service and Privacy Policy that’s set to go into effect next month. Instagram was acquired by Facebook earlier this year for a $1 billion sale price, and the new ToS is ostensibly meant to make the photo-sharing app integrate better with the social networking giant.

The most notable thing about the new terms is that Instagram will reserve the right to sell access to its users’ photos to companies that want to use them in advertisements such as sponsored posts — without needing users’ knowledge or consent, or of course, giving them a share of the money.

If this sounds like a bum deal to you, you’re in good company. It looks like even Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s sister isn’t so keen on the changes.

Today, Arielle Zuckerbergpublicly “liked” an Instagram photo from…
