Facebook Beta removes legacy menu button, now lets you save photos

It's about time! Late last night Facebook issued an update to their recently announced app beta channel, and it brought some features and changes we've been waiting far too long for. The new Facebook Beta v3.5 finally removes the huge black bar and legacy menu button for smartphones that don't have a hardware menu button. Thanks Facebook, many HTC owners will be happy to see this.

Facebook Home updated with folders, widgets coming next

Facebook is busy pushing another round of updates out today for their standard app, as well as the somewhat useful Facebook Home launcher.

Which can then be used in the app tray, or on the newly added dock so we can access apps and such like a smartphone should, instead of being merely a social networking device.

Even though it feels like just last month that Google+ launched, today it turned two years old. It's hard to believe, we know, but the social network is starting to look all grown up.

It is looking like Google has begun testing a new service called Mine. The details are just starting to come available and for now what we have seen has the service listed as being "internal only." That of course brings the warning that Google always has plenty of items in such a state and not all will see a public release. That said, Google Mine looks to be a place where you can collect and catalog things.
