Microsoft Street Slide

יום שישי, יולי 30, 2010

Think of life before GPS navigational systems or even maps…now take a look at the following video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-_T949uSwU

Microsoft Security Essentials – Beta

יום שבת, יולי 24, 2010

Anti Virus(AV) and Anti-Malware software has always been a necessary evil to me. I managed to go on for years without installing any type of such protection because I believed that if you are an experienced enough user, you won’t be infected. I saw no reason for installing an additional piece of software on my system that would eat up precious RAM and instigate disk activity without any direct benefit to me except protection from some “unknown and harmful software”.

יום שבת, נובמבר 7, 2009

Snipping tool trick

יום שבת, אוקטובר 24, 2009

I really love the Snipping Tool. It enables me to take screenshots without having to install third-party software quite efficiently. I did encounter one very annoying issue though when trying to capture context menus or the Start menu- while launching the snipping tool these menus disappeared… :( It seems that there is a solution for this issue.

This guide is at the user level so it will be tangible by the majority of people.

Excitement over Windows 7

יום שישי, ספטמבר 25, 2009

It’s been a long time since I had last posted. A lot of things changed, both in my personal life and in general. One of the things that changed is that people are really excited (in a positive way) about the upcoming release of Microsoft’s new OS. I believe that this new wave of positive excitement was incited by Microsoft’s hard work on correctly marketing Windows 7. One such move is opening a Cafe in Paris to create additional buzz around the release. ...
