Windows 8 With Windows Media Center

Saturday, August 25, 2012

If you know me, you must know that I am a Windows Media Center centric guy. I have WMC machine in the living room, in the kitchen, in any of my children’s computer in their rooms and in my bed room. We watch TVs using the Media Center. I was one of the WMC evangelist when Microsoft embed the Media Center as part of Windows Vista (On Windows XP, you had to install a specific Windows XP Media Center edition). Yes, originally Microsoft wanted to build an echo system around Media Center with add-ons and 3rd party content providers....

Running Angry Birds on the BUILD Samsung Tablet with Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Saturday, April 21, 2012

If you try to install and run Angry Birds on your BUILD machine, you’ll soon find that you can’t run it because there is no support for OpenGL. AT the first it looks like no support in the beta of Windows 8, but the problem is actually happens also on old Windows version, and the real cause is lack of OpenGL support is in the Display Adapter driver.  I decided that no matter what, I am going to run Angry Birds on my machine. After several hours I can say that I’ve made it. But not without getting deep...

Tech Ed Atlanta 2011

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Now, after Shy & I have delivered the Cost Oriented Development lecture, I can relax and post a little bit about this conference. Tech Ed 2011 is a really BIG conference.

The Expo is twice larger than it was in the last LA PDC and you can see that companies that present here invest a lot. The audience is a mixture of IT professionals and developers. CloudValue, the CodeValue subsidiary company has a booth. We present our new cost online service tracking tool...

Nostalgic Or Reality: The Comeback of Commodore

Saturday, April 9, 2011

My first personal computer was Commodore VIC-20, or as a geek I should say my first love. With 5KB of RAM (3.5KB for the user) I had to learn Assembly to do a serious game programming. These were the happy 80’s, the 8-bit computer era. From VIC-20 I moved to the Commodore 64 and then to the Commodore 128 (My first dual CPU machine ). In My final electronic project at high-school I built an electrical circuit based on Analog to Digital converter chip. I developed a Sound Sampling application (using Assembly language) that was able to...

iPad, gPad, mPad, App Store – Does the future so bad for power users and developers?

Monday, April 12, 2010

When we look at the mobile phone market, can we project from it about the future of software? Is Windows 8 going to be a closed system? Will we as developers need to upload all our applications to an App-Store or Marketplaces? Will we have Multitasking? Let's look at the iPad, a big iPhone or better a big iPod? Let's say that it will sell more than Windows PC based Tablets. What does it say to Microsoft? Microsoft has pushed the tablet idea since the release of Windows XP tablet edition. Of course the idea about hand-writing recognitions goes...

There are many useful links inside it.

איזה כותרת אתם הייתם נותנים לכתבה

Friday, March 26, 2010

גם מדורי מחשבים בעיתונים מתנהגים כמו מדורי פוליטיקה בבואם לבחור כותרת לכתבה. לדוגמא, הכותרת הבאה: “אליפות ההאקרים: רק הכרום עוד נותר על רגליו” ואז בתוך הכתבה: לדעתי גם SkyFire לא נפרץ היות שלא לקח חלק בתחרות…
