BackBlaze 2.5 updates online accounts, adds e-mail notifications

Backblaze has updated its software to version 2.5, adding a number of account-related and client changes. The main account page has been reorganized with a new overview of computers and attached drives, with e-mail notifications able to be sent to users if their licensed computer does not communicate with the service for 14 days, a similar e-mail for internal and external drives that have not been backed up for some time, and a frequent account summary message for all devices on the account. The client is now twice as fast in compiling a list of files to back up, and removed the 4GB individual file size limit, allowing any file to be backed up.

Rdio confirms adding Chromecast support to apps in future

Streaming music service Rdio has confirmed via Twitter that it will be working to add support for the Google Chromecast to its apps. While the service can currently stream audio to the device by casting a Chrome tab showing the site, reports Engadget, adding the functionality to the apps directly should make things easier for users in the future. Google released a software development kit for third-party developers of the $35 Chromecast earlier this week, something which should help expedite the app's new feature.
