Today we learn that Disney has a new person in his staff, and not just any! the co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsay, also known simply as @jack , has joined the company, according to a press release of the brand. The great entrepreneur Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter and Square payment system, adds a new string to his bow. He integrates indeed the board of Disney.
First tweet ever posted on Twitter, March 21, 2006 by Jack Dorsay
This very exclusive club, where Steve Jobs has long served, therefore a small room for Jack Dorsey whose position of “independent director” takes “effective immediately.”
Dorsay tweets after: ““I only hope we don’t lose sight of one thing—that it was all started by a mouse.”—Walt Disney”
Thus, the man joined the board of Disney retained his seat in Twitter, and is also still at the head of his other company, Square. His new appointment is effective immediately and Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, clearly indicates that Dorsay role will be to improve the ” use of the latest technologies and platforms to reach more people and improve our relationships with our customers”. He does not leave his chosen field and will help Disney to develop in the field of social networks.

Recently Windows Phone users seems to be unable to download apps for the time being. The Windows Phone Store is having technical issues, which is preventing the download of new apps.
Users trying to download or update apps are being shown the above error message, with the error code: 805a0193. The issue seems to be widespread and we have confirmed it on our own device as well.
No word yet on what’s causing the issue but hopefully it should be sorted soon.
The Galaxy Note II is about to get two additional color version. Well, at least in Korean.
After the purported black version, now there’s others to come. According to a leaked image, the two new colors are Ruby Wine and Amber Brown.
The Galaxy S III is already available in a bunch of colors, so it make sense for its bigger brother to follow suit. The Galaxy S III already has an Amber Brown version, while its red variant is called Garnet Red, so there’s some difference.
There is no info on whether those colors will leave South Korea, but I guess it will happen soon or later, just like it happened with the Galaxy S III paint jobs.
A press image of a black N7100 (Galaxy Note II) has emerged. A black Samsung Galaxy Note II addition makes perfect sense – we reckon that plenty of people will opt for the stealthier color option of the Android powerhouse. A darker color scheme is sure to at least make the device appear smaller.
There is no word on when or where the new color scheme will become officially available. MWC 2013 seems like a fairly safe bet to us, But we could have some info within a few days during the CES in Las Vegas.
Tell us what you think about a black Not II ? in the comment section.
Tumblr for iPad has now its own iOS application version. Although the iPhone version has been available for a while now and was recently given a major facelift, the iPad version was nowhere to be found.
Among the new features is a UI optimized for the iPad’s bigger display. You get a navigation bar on the side that stays there permanently unlike on the iPhone version. You also get a pop-up carousal menu with options when you click on the new post button. Being a native app, it’s also smooth and fast.
To download your Tumblr app is now available for free on the App Store.
The Blackberry 10 gold SDK release has revealed an interesting tidbit for Evernote partakers: the memory-prodding app seems to be tightly enmeshed with RIM’s upcoming OS. It’s one of the so-called Notebook options listed under the “App Integration” heading, which let you organize “actionable and non-actionable items into separate folders or topics.” Evernote is listed as one of those options, and will let you sync up and access your account with Blackberry 10 devices, according to the documentation.
That app is already available across all other major platforms, letting you organize documents with audio, video, photos, websites and, um, text — then sync everything up in the cloud. Considering Evernote’s recent foray into the business side of things, having the app built-in might be a nice pitch to RIM’s core userbase when the new OS is finally launched.
Samsung has recently released the first video demonstrating the Android 4.1.2 update for the Galaxy S III that brings with it Samsung’s Premium Suite “bunsh of applications”, which are basically features that were previously exclusive to the Galaxy Note II.
Now they have released the second and what seems like the last video in the series, that showcases a few more features in this rather feature packed update.
One of the new features is called the Paper Artist app, which is now built-into the software. Another new feature is the low light mode in the camera, something that I really liked on the Galaxy Note II. This takes multiple shots and combines them to form a bright, noise-free image in low light situations and the results are often fantastic.
Other important features is Best Face mode, which takes multiple shots of people and then lets you choose the perfect facial expression from among the shots taken. Other than that there is the new Easy Mode for the homescreen and several accessibility features for the disabled.
Unfortunately, availability of the Premium Suite upgrade hasn’t been announced yet (because it’s mostly up to the carriers).
