    All of you geeks who scrutinize firmware/OS version numbers as if you were some CSI detective on the world's most high profile will have something new to lust after. Leaked images of a Windows 7 7600 build (string number: 7600.16384.090710-1945) have started circulating the digital landscape. As you can see from the string number, the build wasn't pushed out that long ago -- it's merely a few days old. The real kicker is that the letters RTM are tagging along for the ride. Such a bond usua...
  • Stacks comes to Windows 7 by way of “7Stacks”
    by Mike

    While the dock is a love it or hate it feature in OS X, most people who enjoy the dock's company also in some form enjoy stacks. The expanding folders that reside on the dock make it easy and quick to see inside a particular folder. Until now, Windows users have had to suffice with....nothing (please correct if I'm wrong). However, your patience has paid off as Windows 7 will finally bring with it a nifty 3rd party app called "7Stacks". (more...)...
  • Windows 7 pricing officially outted.

    I'll start by saying that if you were hoping for Microsoft to loosely follow Apple in terms of pricing on OS upgrades on their up and coming OS releases, I'm sorry to say that considering Microsoft's revealed pricing "loosely based" to Apple's would be a stretch to say the least. For XP and Vista users who are upgrading, the pricing is as follows: Upgrade Pricing: Windows Home Premium Upgrade: $119 Windows Home Professional Upgrade: $199 Windows Home Ultimate Upgrade: $219.99 So the ...
  • Defy all common sense and scientific laws: Windows 7 Ultimate on a Pentium II

    *Chuckles*. Yes folks, some one has done it. Just when you thought you couldn't get any more bored/adventurous, someone like PC enthusiast Hackerman1 comes along and does something crazy like putting Windows 7 on a Pentium II computer. Why? Well why not? Just to prove he can of course! As far as basic specs go, underpowered is a gross understatement. A 266MHz processor, 96MB of RAM, and 4MB graphics card round out the much too old spec sheet. Obviously such measly hardware earns nothin...
  • Microsoft wants XP to forever be in our hearts, minds, and computers

    Windows XP brings different emotions to different people.  For those in the IT world, XP has matured into a more or less solid operating system that has been tweaked and loved to the fullest extent.  For home users, it is something they've been staring at for years now, possibly even growing a tad long in the tooth.  They want change.  It seems Microsoft isn't ready to send this aging beast to the grave just yet as they are...again...extending the XP downgrade option.  This time, the m...
  • Alphabet soup maker venturing into world of cellphones - ITG xpPhone

    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 1:11 pm
    With XP quickly gaining in age as it's desktop successor, Windows 7 is now drawing ever closer meaning more adventurous uses of XP can be sought out. Mobile ventures perhaps? One of the perks of being an older tried and true operating system is that most of the quirks have been worked out and the OS optimized to its fullest. Moving forward with XP, what is the next stage now that Windows 7 will start to take over? Smartphones of course. Brought to you by the makers of alphabet soup (not ...
  • USB Mass storage mode not working on your Berry/SD card? [How-To]
    by Mike
    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 8:23 am
    One of the great parts of the Blackberry experience is the ability to save files to the SD card for use in sending to another recipient or simply by using your Berry as a big radio wave emitting flash drive. However, while process of entering mass storage mode is extremely easy, occasionally things go awry. Have you ever connected, enabling mass storage mode, only to find that your SD card inside your berry doesn't show up or get recognized? The solution and ensuing happiness are right insi...
  • Microsoft bringing the heat - Laptop Hunter ads now showing on an iPhone near you
    by Mike
    Posted May 22nd, 2009 at 7:55 am
    Microsoft as of late has been really pushing the whole "value" mentality when comparing Windows boxes to Apple powered ones. More or less, the gist of Microsoft's latest "Laptop Hunter" ads were that Microsoft is more affordable and gives you more for less. They portray Apple computers as overpriced with the consumer paying a premium for a simple fruit logo on the machine. Microsoft while still very much having a majority of the computer market by user base percentage isn't lying down and i...
  • Get all artsy with Windows 7 RC’s wallpapers. [Downloads]
    by Mike
    Posted May 5th, 2009 at 3:53 pm
    If you like different and what I would call more "cartoony" wallpapers, the wallpapers included in the latest Windows 7 RC 1 download are sure tickle your fancy.  While they're more "out there", random, and maybe even abstract designs aren't my cup of tea, I'm sure many of the more expressive individuals out there will feel right at home displaying these on your desktop.  If that be the case and you either can't or don't want to install the RC 1 release on your computer, you can step insid...
  • Windows 7 minimum specs let loose

    Posted May 1st, 2009 at 12:12 pm
    In the 2009, if you don't meet the freshly released minimum requirements for Windows 7, it's either time for you to give up with computers, or get a new one because these are far from bank busters here folks: 1 GHz processor (32- or 64-bit) 1 GB of RAM (32-bit)/ 2 GB of RAM (64-bit) 16 GB of available disk space (32-bit)/ 20 GB of available disk space (64-bit) DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver Again, in 2007 land, these were more respectable numbers. Howe...
  • Office 2010 interface gets spied - looks good

    Office junkies are no doubt looking forward to the next update, Microsoft Office 2010.  While it isn't bringing any new major updates to the table (that we know of yet), pictures always make people happy.  Above is a screenshot of the Office showing off a unique voicemail feature.  At first glance, the new interface actually looks pretty darn good looking.  Office 2010 looks as if it will be quite a worthwhile upgrade as far as design is goes.  Do you like the new look?  Or are you sti...
