    **The box bordered in red will no longer be an option on most flash drives after Window 7's latest security update** Microsoft announced today a move to make it harder for viruses such as Conficker to piggy back on Windows' auto-run feature when a flash drive is inserted.  Instead of the flash drive having access to auto-run features as soon as the drive is inserted, users will have to manually launch programs contained on the storage device.  However, Microsoft cautioned that DVD's and C...

    The iPhone has enjoyed complete dominance in the younger crowd because of its tight integration with a music download service (iTunes), a very successful App Store, and a UI and device functionality that many manufacturers still have some time before they catch up on. Since the dawn of the iPhone, Microsoft has been included in many rumors telling of an impending Microsoft/Zune phone. Time and time again, Microsoft has countered that they are a software business and leave the hardware desgin...

    Everyone who knows anything about computers knows that Apple computers will always be more expensive than their PC counterparts.  According to Microsoft and as well as many individuals, the "Apple Tax" is wasted money on nothing more than some cute little fruit logo affixed somewhere on your machine.  For others it is a sign of "coolness", youth, and individuality.  One thing is for sure, Apple who was expected to weather the economic storm is mortal just like everyone else.  So much so ...

    Apple users have in recent years touted Time Machine as the most efficient and easy to use back up service available in the world today taking away the worry and pain of having to remember to manually back up your data.  Then the Time Capsule debuted and made even wireless back ups and storage simple.  Until now, if you wanted a program that operated as nicely as Time Machine or a piece of hardware as nice as Time Capsule, your only choice was to switch to OS X.  Many people however don't...

    I know that technology and the gadget world as a whole move at a pretty fast clip, but a new job posting by Microsoft brings a new meaning to the words "forward thinking".  The job posting by Microsoft states: Are you a talented SDE/T Lead looking for the next technical challenge on a key operating system component? Are you passionate about distributed systems, networking, file systems and want to be the leader of a cutting edge project? Are you looking for a team with abundant opportuni...
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 *Not* officially launching May 11th

    While I myself am far from a Windows Mobile fan, I can appreciate the enthusiasm and devotion the WinMo crowd have for their workhorse OS.  Even though many if not most of the mobile world has already moved on from 6.5 and is now focused on Windows Mobile 7, we'll take what we can get as WinMo isn't a platform known for speedy or frequent updates.  If you are a WinMo follower and devoted fan for life, May 11th is your day to shine...kind of.  After Microsoft releases it on the 11th of May...

  • ISO burning coming to a Windows 7 PC near you

    Posted April 14th, 2009 at 6:47 pm
    If you are of the category of users either publicly or self designated "heavy" you no doubt are familiar with and spend quite a bit of time with ISO files.  When said files are written to a CD/DVD, the user is usally installing or testing something large such as a big software program or even the latest Linux distro.  Until now in the Windows land burning such files meant you would have to head to Google and find either free or paid software that take care of that task for you.  In Window...

    If you are one of the 5 people using Vista and are getting tired of the hoops you have to go through in order to change something as simple as the Logon background or sound file that chimes when you startup and logon, Vista Logon Changer is for you.  This simple app makes it dead simple to change the logon background as well as the startup sound.  If custom is the way you roll, you might want to download Vista Logon Changer and see all the custom goodness you've been missing (or too lazy t...

    Microsoft's "not full steam ahead" project called the Zune will soon have many homes on multiple devices.  WM Power Userhas been tipped off regarding the next rendition of WinMo and the Zune.  Apparently some of the Zune's musical features are going to make their way into Windows Mobile 7.  How exciting.  Hey I can't knock it that bad since I had a first gen Zune.  The device itself was ugly as sin but it played music and had a decent enough interface.  Certainly with some "steam" and ...

    Posted March 24th, 2009 at 4:22 pm
    Windows Mobile 6.5 not coming until this summer and the design still up in the air, many have kind of almost forgotten about Windows Mobile 7.  Ok, maybe not forgotten, but it has been shoved from the forefront of their minds.  Above is an awesome screenshot of a "claimed" Windows Mobile 7 in action captured by "a kind tipster" who sent the image above to WM Power User.  Is it real?  For all we know it could be a really nice theme or shell on top of WinMo.  If it does in fact turn out t...
