A few days ago word got around that almost every major feature of Windows 7 can be completely turned off. That means the actual data for those features won’t be loaded by the operating system. This is obviously made for security conscious customers but will be useful to a lot of Windows power users. But […]
I’m not posting all of the leaked screenshots from Office 14, basically because I don’t know if anyone cares about anything but Excel and Word. Leaked: First Office 14 screenshots.
TechCrunch has a run down of what Ballmer will (supposedly) be announcing at this years CES keynote. Windows 7, the successor to Vista, will officially enter public beta. Windows Mobile will support Flash by the end of the first quarter. (This was demoed at an Adobe conference in November). Two new Halo titles will be […]
As is usually expected with Windows releases the latest Windows 7 Beta ISO has hit torrent trackers. I’m not going to link to it here for legal reasons but it isn’t too difficult to find. Windows 7 Beta ISO leaked on torrent trackers – Download Squad.
That’s right folks, you’re going to be able to pick up some DOS T-shits. The line will feature a few designs contributed by the rapper Common. The idea for these shirts was conceived by Crispin Porter & Bogusky, the marketing firm that Microsoft hired for their most recent attempt at making themselves into a cool […]
In an effort to combat piracy, Microsoft has finally begun doing something that will actually help. Instead of putting more and more anti-piracy measures in Office they have lowered the price to the equivalent of $29. Microsoft has tried similar tactics in the past, like when they sold Office to college students at a drastically […]
The second phase of Microsoft’s new ad campaign has begun with a few new ads seemingly focused on the diversity of PC users. The ad depicted a series of people saying “I’m a PC,” very simple, but gets the point across that everyone uses PCs. The new ads are a direct response to the Get […]
No one seemed to like the first ad and it seems that most people don’t “get” the second ad either. But, as someone (I can’t remember who) said about the ad, if you smile even once, Microsoft wins. All Microsoft has to day is make you think of Microsoft in a more posative light, and […]
Officially today you can now pick up an Xbox 360 for (what I consider to be) that magical price point of $199.99. This bundle includes the console itself (without hard drive), a 256MB memory unit, a wireless controller, Xbox LIVE Silver membership, Composite AV cable, 5 Arcade LIVE titles: Feeding Frenzy, Luxor 2, Boom Boom […]
The first Microsoft ad featureing Seinfeld and Bill Gates aired yesterday and so far the general consensus is that the ad is good but doesn’t seem to have any relevance to any of Microsofts products. That analysis is correct but I’m fairly certain that there will be many more ads that tell a story (relative […]
After watching this video I compared the experience on the Xbox 360 compared to the experience on the Roku player and it seems that the Xbox 360 is much nicer. The Roku player isn’t as nice looking as the Xbox 360 in terms of UI and although the Xbox 360 is loud it is mostly […]
The Xbox 360 will be getting an update that will allow users who also have a Netflix account to stream movies and TV shows to their televisions through the Xbox 360. Users with a Gold Xbox Live account will also be able to share your Netflix movies with friends via your Xbox Live party so […]
