Android 3.2Hotmail blocks common passwords like 12345, iUsers gives jailbroken iPad owners multiple user profiles, and Android 3.2 gets confirmed for tablets.
It's Monday, July 18th 2011. I'm Wilson Tang on CNet.com and it's time to get Loaded. Android 3.2 has been eagerly awaited by many tablet owners and now we have some confirmations. Motorola has confirmed that its Xoom tablet will be getting Android 3.2. The new software brings optimization for a wide variety of screens, a new fill screen mode, the ability to load media files from SD cards and extended screen support APIs. Google has decided to remove its driving time in traffic estimates for Google Maps. Yes, because it's- were never too accurate to begin with but the company has decided to come up with a more accurate, better solution rather than give you inaccurate driving estimates. Some iPad owners have been clamoring for Apple to offer multiple user profiles on its popular iPad tablet. Now, users with jail broken iPads will be able to add the capability by installing iUser software from the [unk] store. iUsers add a user log in [unk] to iPad's lock screen and the software will split the application and preferences between users on the same iPad so user with Angry Birds on one profile won't see it in another. Neither will they see user preferences or e-mails. Microsoft may have accidentally unveiled a social network project. Some users accidentally discovered that when visiting SOCL.com which is owned by Microsoft. They discovered the beginnings of a social networking utility. Users could log in via Twitter and Facebook and the authorization pages suggest that users could update and post to their profiles. For now, that's about all we know. Microsoft quickly replaced the homepage after it was prematurely unveiled. Finally, Microsoft is also unveiling some new security changes to its hotmail systems. Users will no long be able to use common passwords like 12345 or password now in signing up for a hotmail account. Hotmail will now block comment passwords which could easily be compromised by dictionary text. Other popular passwords will be blocked like I Love Cats and Go Giants. The password's feature will roll out soon. Those are headlines for today. I'm Wilson Tang for CNet.com and you've just been loaded.
