BBM Crashes on iOS 7.0.3, BlackBerry Working on a Fix

BBM users who upgraded their iPhones to iOS 7.0.3 have been affected by a critical bug that makes the instant messaging application almost impossible to use.

As CrackBerry points out, BlackBerry Messenger application uses a special HelveticaNeue-Italic font, which, unfortunately, has been removed by Apple in the iOS 7.0.3 update. This issue causes BBM to randomly crash. The problem is said to affect all iPhone users who upgraded to iOS 7.0.3, but those who kept their smartphones on a previous version don’t have any problem using BBM.

The good news is BlackBerry is aware of this problem and is working hard to offer a fix as soon as possible. We will keep an eye out for any updates on the issue, so stay tuned for additional info when it becomes available.

MSI Adora24 All-in-One PCs Upgraded with Intel Haswell CPUs

The Haswell line of CPUs now has another all-in-one computer under its belt, courtesy of Micro-Star International.

Haswell is the codename used to refer to the latest generation of Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 central processing units, both for desktops and for notebooks. MSI has chosen to outfit the Adora24 AiO with Core i3 and Core i5 mobile multi-core chips. Adore24 isn't a new computer though. Just the latest to be getting this upgrade. All-in-One systems often have to use laptop components because they need to be very compact themselves, hence the use of mobile chips instead of desktop ones (they would be too hot).

MSI has also installed the NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M discrete graphics card, plus MSI's latest software tools. The MSI Adora24M and Adora24G with older-generation CPUs will be gone by the end of the month (October 23, 2013).

Impactics Haswell Fanless NUC Case

Intel's Core-series of CPUs were made for mid-to-high-end PCs, but there are those who make mini PCs with them. FanlessTech decided to help.

Intel itself has a mini PC ready to accept its Haswell line of CPUs (fourth-generation Core-series). Called NUC, Next Unit of Computing, it is small and shaped like a block. Almost cube-like. The chassis, in this case, plays more than just the role of pretty skin. In fact, it does most of the cooling. Impactics has now created a case that can make it unnecessary for the CPU to have even a fan of its own.

More specifically, the new NUC case can take Intel's D54250WYK motherboard, complete with Intel Core i5-4250U processors (dual-core, up to 2.60 GHz, 3 MB L3 cache) and fanlessly keep the heat off them. The reference case has a lateral-blower fan that can get really noisy, so Impactics may get quite a few buyers.
