HTC Desire gets Froyo, YouTube Limit Increased

Here’s https://www.compareandrecycle.co.uk’s round-up of the latest technology news:

YouTube Increase Video Limit

For as long as anyone can remember YouTube has had a 10 minute limit in place for videos uploaded by users, but it’s been announced that the limit is now increasing to 15 minutes.

YouTube say that the change is as a result of their close work with media companies, presumably this is because they’re now a little bit less worried about full length copyrighted content being uploaded.

Some users aren’t happy with the change saying that 10 minutes is more than long enough to create something worth watching while a 15 minute limit could be overkill for a lot of content. Others are not happy about the new bar which appears along the bottom of the page and doesn’t seem to have an obvious method of removal.

Could this be the start of regular length increases for YouTube, or will film and television studios make sure the limit will never allow for full length television episodes and films to be uploaded as a single file?

Android 2.2 Coming to HTC Desire

It’s been announced that over the weekend some HTC Desire users should start receiving the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update. In addition to the standard features added by Froyo such as saving apps to an SD card Desire users will also get 720p video recording.

Those with unlocked phones will get the update first while those with a phone tied to a network will have to wait a few more weeks.

HTC recommend that the update is downloaded via Wi-Fi rather than using a 3G connection due to the large size of the update.
