How hard is for a company to understand that I don't need another download manager, and that I don't want another download manager?
I don't want software being installed on my computer just so that I have the ability to download another piece of software?
Is there are anything more intrusive than this, short of being an unwanted spyware or adware software?
You choose which version you want, and a key will be generated for you in a week. Also this is a download offer only.
Lucky beta tester, got the gift on the same dat Windows Vista RTM landed on MSDN and Technet.
I've already downloaded the Windows Vista ISO, in just over a couple of hours. I wonder with the news spreading fast how long before all the servers are loaded and the entire Internet slows down...
The file en_windows_vista_x86_dvd_X12-34293.iso is an ISO-9660 DVD Image, with a total of 2555 MB.
This single download includes the following Windows Vista editions:
Windows Vista Business Windows Vista Business N Windows Vista Home Basic Windows Vista Home Basic N Windows Vista Home Premium Windows Vista Starter Windows Vista Ultimate
In that article I explained what new features are coming to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and how those features will interact with Windows Mobile devices, and other devices running the licensed Exchange ActiveSync client platform.
If you want even more information on this, you should head to Paul Mah's Technology At Play, and read the post Examining Exchange 2007: The Future of Direct Push.
Now that Microsoft have finally announced that Exchange 2007 is being slated for release at the end of November 2006, it is a good time as any for us to perform a detailed appraisal of the Direct Push-related components in this new version of Microsoft Exchange.
Perhaps you have already heard or even read-up on it. But in case you are not aware yet, Exchange 2007 is a radically different beast altogether from Exchange 2003. Rather than being a purely evolutionary upgrade, this latest version of Exchange is set to bring several features never before found in the e-mail server scene – such as built-in voice (Think in terms of voice PABX) and fax capabilities, onto the playing field.
They are working hard on the site, with versions in French, German, Spanish, Chinese - and have just annoucned an UberGizmo mobile version of the site, working on all sorts of mobile devices, including Windows Mobile Pocket PC, Palm, Symbian S60 and PSP.
I've done a couple of early testing for them on my Pocket PCs to see how the site worked, titles, etc. Worth checking it out at ubergizmo.mobi.
I'm not sure how this is going to work yet, but if it's anything like the U.S. version don't feel bad if you don't get an invitation this time around. According to the Foo organisers over there, each year they invite a different mix of people they know, people they'd like to know, and other crazy stuff.
Having said that, I am looking for someone willing to share accomodation - I've booked into the Walton Park Motor Lodge and the rooms seem to accomodate two, so if you are keen, contact me (after you have received your invitation and confirmed presence).
MagicButton is a very small task switcher, and free, while MemMaid is a great memory management software - perfect for cleaning up the Pocket Internet Explorer cache after a soft reset, or remove some unwanted stuff from your Pocket PC.
I've just noticed DinarSoft has updated their logo and webite. Worth a visit to check their range of software - TapText is a really cool tool to automate the process of entering text and strings into your e-mails and documents and HandySwitcher is an interesting task manager with lots more functions than MagicButton.
While I agree with Michael that aggreg8 is not ready for prime time, I have to disagree with a small, but interesting incident.
On this post's first version Michael compared aggreg8.com with The Hive (hive.net), saying that the hive was a social site for developers, and the domain was for sale, linking to the (wrong) Hive.com domain.
I posted a comment to his blog entry pointing out that The Hive is not for developers, but for Microsoft Community sites owners, and hive.net is not the same as hive.com. I asked for some fact checking before posting.
What happened? His post was changed, and my comment removed. Why my comment was removed? Because I asked for some fact checking before posts are done? C'mon. Helping accuracy shouldn't be rewarded with this.
Oh well, one less feed on my aggregator.
Well, put together seems to be the point, because Silicon Welly is live now... If you visit the site there's a welcome page, but if you click the link you are then redirected to this page with posts and links.
Interesting concept. Tim Norton, behind this work is also the guy driving the PlanHQ, Rod Drury's latest investment.
