Last night, Apple pulled the update, though it was still available for a while for download from Apple’s website, and some users were seeing it appear despite being pulled. Fortunately, it didn’t take Apple long to sort out whatever the problem was, and this evening a new version of the firmware update is rolling out, bringing about the new features.
The buggy version of the 6.0 firmware was build number 11A470e, and this latest version showing up to Apple TV owners is build 11A502 — as such, it would seem some big tweaks took place between the two versions. Still, those who haven’t updated can now safely do so, including manually grabbing it from Apple’s website.
BlackBerry enters agreement for $4.7 billion sale of company
to consortium led by Fairfax Financial
For the second time in as many trading days, shares of BlackBerry were halted in advance of some big news from the company. Today's news is no less big. BlackBerry has just announced that it's signed a letter of intent agreement for a sale of the company valued at $4.7 billion to a consortium led by Fairfax Financial (the company's largest shareholder). Pending due diligence that's expected to be completed by November 4th, the deal would see BlackBerry go private, with shareholders each receiving $9 per share in cash.
