Twitter Enhances User Profiles With Image Galleries

If you post pictures on Twitter via their new photo upload tool, or a third party photo-sharing service as yFrog, TwitPic or Instagram, photos will soon appear in your Twitter profile in a gallery of images. Twitter is the deployment of user galleries, since the function calls to members on Monday. Galleries will automatically display the 100 most recent images that the user has shared via Twitter - which dates back to January 1, 2010 - support services for photo sharing. Galleries will live in a user profile and highlight some recent pictures few. A visitor can click "view all" to see more images, either in a grid view that shows thumbnails or a detailed view of highlighting the most recent image and text of the tweet that was shared with him.

Ties updating Twitter to share photos of thrust and will radically change the appearance of Twitter profiles. Galleries offer equal billing to the pictures shared by manufacturers of third party applications, but also serve to remind users that Twitter is no longer just a place to 140 characters - is for the photos too. The update is likely designed to appeal to Twitter users to add more photos to your tweets.

Galleries at the launch will be composite. Twitter Communications Manager Carolyn Penner said in a tweet that users can expect to see the Monday update. "We are launching one of my favorite features today: user galleries! View photos from a shared account on Twitter. Sit tight - which is very soon," she wrote.

Windows 8 will boast “robust” support for USB 3.0 devices

Microsoft revealed that Windows 8 will boast "robust" support for USB 3.0 devices, but will continue to support the USB specification of age. Microsoft Dennis Flanagan, director of program management for network devices and group, said the engineering work Microsoft is doing to support USB 3.0 on the company blog. The USB standard is more than 10 times faster than its predecessor USB 2.0. Its competitor, Apple has opted for the standard lightning fast.

"The decision to invest in the USB 3.0 was easy to do, but do so without compromising the existing ecosystem USB was a big challenge to overcome," Flanagan said in a blog. "Our design had to follow the specification revision 3.0, precisely to allow new USB 3.0 hardware. There are billions of old USB devices must be compatible with Windows."

To USB 3. 0 working with the next generation of Windows, Flanagan says Microsoft began working with hardware manufacturers soon to "meticulous design of a new USB software stack for the new driver, maintaining existing interfaces and behaviors, ensuring all devices and the controller work. " To do this, which refined a model checking tool called Zing software to test every aspect of your software model.

Other studies to prepare for USB 3.0 includes a large number of hardware testing and creating a custom tool called Mutt (USB testing tool) "to simulate a full range of device operation that we had observed in recent years." In essence, it allowed Microsoft to test 1,000 different USB devices with a single USB flash drive.
