  • Microsoft Pure and Turtle Mobile Phones (Project Pink) early specs revealed: You had me until the “Windows 6 CE” verbiage…

    As much as I and I'm sure many of you like to drool over the highest quality smartphones, not everyone wants, needs, or can afford such lavish expenditures. For such individuals, more mid to lower-range smartphones with a basic web browser, full qwerty, and decent email support are enough. It looked as if the much lauded "Project Pink" handsets from Microsoft (dubbed the Pure and Turtle) were going to be quite the hot ticket item for lower-end smartphone sales -- and then I read the spec sheet...
  • Windows Phone 7: Everything you (almost) want to know!

    Today hold's host to what is quite possibly one of the biggest, most important releases for Microsoft in the companies history. Yes, Windows 7 for the desktop was a much needed (and now successful) revelation, moving users from the gut-wrenching experience that Vista bestowed upon the company. On the mobile front however, Microsoft has been lagging for several years now. So for all intents and purposes, Microsoft needs Windows Mobile (now renamed) Phone 7 to be a slam dunk and then some. Wit...
  • WindowsMobile 7 to feature free navigation apps. WinMo 6.x getting chopped to free?

    I don't cover WidnowsMobile happenings a whole lot but that may soon change. Windows Mobile 7 is looking more and more exciting as MWC draws closer with my only hesitations being focused on the issues of multi-tasking and Marketplace-only app installs. Other than that, it's looking good. Really good. New word from MS Mobiles today has revealed some exciting news for travelers (and those whom find themselves lost more often than not) -- Free navigation! Much like Android and Symbian alread...

    Windows Mobile diehards, all 13 of you gather 'round. Microsoft's CFO Peter Klein has given us all a grand display of his loose lips by sharing that Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will in fact be the home of the world's first WinMo 7 unveiling. Can anyone say saweet?! For a quick refresher, WinMo 7 will bring with it legitimate support for capacitive screens, a heavily *fingers crossed* reworked Windows Mobile UI, and speed/navigation improvements across the board. All-in-all, for s...
  • WinMo 7 coming in 2010. Wait, no it isn’t. It is. Ha, just kidding, it isn’t….again.

    The roller coaster of emotion that Windows Mobile fans' are on isn't for the faint of heart. Being stuck with WinMo 6.5.2 when the big champs such as iPhone, Android, and webOS are so much nicer to look at and use is no doubt tugging a few heart strings. This forthcoming news isn't going to help either. Several industry sources (according to Cellular-News and Brighthand) are releasing grim outlooks for Windows Mobile fans hoping for a late '10 release of WinMo7. According to those sources,...
  • Finally, a fix for Office ‘97/Windows 7 UAC woes.

    Software from Microsoft is benefited by rather constant, frequent updates that keep your Windows software running the best that it possibly can. While I update/upgrade my hardware and software as often as I can, there are many out theme who fall more into the "casual use" category. For them, updating all the time isn't necessarily that important. With that said, users of Windows 7 whom installed Office '97 (yes, that's '97 with a "9") may have noticed as of late that editing UAC controls...
  • Windows Mobile 7 pushed deeper into 2010

    "Windows Mobile 7 is being pushed further back into the tail end of 2010" -- not exactly the words Microsoft wants to speak nor the words WinMo hopefuls want to hear. Head of Microsoft's UK Mobility Division, Phil Moore, had those bleak words to share today. Windows Mobile 7 should have been released this summer, plain and simple. A 2010 date is bad enough. But quoting Microsoft themselves saying who are publicly announcing "late 2010" makes us wonder how much longer they're going to be rele...
  • Windows 7 Whopper: 7 Pattiest of beef. 7 clogged arteries. Japan only.

    If you find yourself a local of Japan looking for something to eat on your fine Thursday afternoon and also happen to be in the festive mood due to Microsoft's grand release of Windows 7 today, why not kill two birds with one stone. Or you could sling a 7 pattied whopper at them. A joint effort between Microsoft and Burger King of Japan has created one of the more "tasty" marketing campaigns for Windows 7. The special editition Whopper features all the usual toppings of a normal whopper + 5 a...
  • Family Guy sinks to new low, Windows 7 product placement included.

    It can be recorded that Windows 7 does actually have me liking the whole Windows ecosystem again. Albeit not as much as I like Snow Leopard, still, Microsoft finally made right in the OS department with their upcoming release. However, just because I like their product doesn't mean I want to hear about it or get constant reminders that it exists. Case in point: A new, Microsoft sponsored, Windows 7 horn tooting Family guy dubbed "Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show"...
  • Windows 7 upgrade chart is one big grouping of pain.
    by Mike
    Posted August 7th, 2009 at 5:40 am
    If you are a company big or small and want to see how not to release a product (and support information), go no further than the Windows 7 upgrade chart. What should be a rather simple affair with a chart that is pretty well laid out and easy to read ends up looking like an eye raping ordeal. As one can see form the shot above, the upgrade path is rather hairy with just about any upgrade path you choose meaning you're going to have a lousy several hours the day you decide to do the upgrade/s...

    If you are a home theater junkie you have already given up on the "normal" TV market including LCD's and Plasma displays as they puny.  What you have instead opted for is projectors.  While high quality will cost you dearly, the pay off is pure bliss for the two little cavities inside your head.  But for some, price is no object.  And if that is the case, Sanyo would like to show you something: "The Worlds Brightest Projector".  How bright?
