Make Your PC Wake From Sleep Automatically
2008-07-09 14:56:00
A lot of people these days are becoming more aware of the energy savings to be had by shutting down unused equipment when it?s not in use. And while it?s no problem to shut off the TV and the end of the evening a lot of people have trouble doing the same for the PC. This is mainly because it?s nice to have all your work on your computer right there where you left it when you return in the morning. Of course, this is what ?sleep? mode is for ? you can save energy without losing your place. But wouldn?t it be nice if your computer knew when to wake up for you? Well, it can! Using the Task Scheduler (In Vista: Control PanelSystem and MaintenanceAdministrative ToolsTask Scheduler), you can make your PC wake up at the designated time you want just by having it run a simple task ? like say, launching then closing the command prompt window. For example: Schedule a task that executes the command cmd.exe with command line arguments [/c ?exit?] (without the []) and make sure to set the...

Live Mesh v.s. MobileMe : Tech. Showdown!
2008-07-06 14:07:00
The computing industry that as we know today is changing very fast into one in which everything we need can be accessed online. Microsoft is onboard with this new computing paradigm popularly known as ?Cloud Computing? which folks at Redmond more like to call it as ?Software + Services?. For the past several years, Microsoft founder Bill Gates has always emphasized in his various keynotes and speeches on how important a role a Windows PC plays as the center of everyone?s digital life. Sure people have moved beyond the PC with connected devices, and has engage with others online, but the PC was always at the center. When you think about it, putting a PC in the center of our lives.. it makes a lot of sense ? but the trend now is changing, people now are more looking for these portable form factors that utilize Internet that work  online in ways that, as it turns out, don?t actually require Windows or traditional PCs. Now this to me is a very important time for Microsoft, the time wh...

Getting started with SQL Server Data Services
2008-07-04 09:09:00
A couple of days ago, I received a mail from Microsoft Connect which confirmed me as a private tester for Microsoft SQL Server Data Services . While I am still exploring this new service, I just thought of guiding all those interested in this service in order to help you get started with SQL Server Data Services a.k.a SSDS but first up, what is SSDS? At this years MIX, Microsoft unveiled SQL Server Data Services as a direct competitor to Amazon SimpleDB. SQL Server Data Services  is a web-facing utility-based service designed for businesses and developers that need scalable, highly available, secure and easily programmable on-demand data storage with robust database query capabilities. The platform is built upon existing Microsoft SQL Server relational database technologies. So basically it?s a cloud-based repository service that will offer APIs that enable storage in the cloud.

Xbox 360 Getting a 3D Dashboard Make-Over?
2008-07-03 14:29:00
The rumored Xbox 360 Spring Update might not have hit yet, but we know something big is in the works for the console's dashboard. How big? Well besides the gi-normous list of rumored updates we posted about back in May we're now hearing from a number of sources that the Live dashboard is going to be getting a second interface option, one that will use the yet-to-be announced motion controller to navigate. This new user interface, we've been told, will recreate the increasingly cluttered dashboard "blade" system in a 3D environment that will be something more akin to the Minority Report than a filing cabinet. The motion controls will allow users to sort of slide through the different levels of this floating menu system. Sounds like a fantastic idea, if it can be implemented correctly.

Review: YouTube application in HTC Touch Diamond
2008-07-01 21:36:00
Videos on YouTube are like hapiness and money ("if you can't buy hapiness, then you don't know where to shop"): you can find anything on YouTube and if you can't find it, then you don't know how to search. Some people mention, that tilt sensor of HTC Touch Diamond is a feature that can sway many people to buy this phone, but another amazing advancement of this phone, is YouTube stand-alone application that is included in HTC Touch Diamond and that offers even high-quality watching meaning the image sharper than in iPhone because it uses full 640x480 pixels (and iPhone has only 320x480 pixels = 2 times less): Once you open the YouTube application you see the following welcome screen (we publish screen shots here one-to-one, i.e. in original resolution as they appear in HTC Touch Diamond): However we don't recommend trying out videos on the welcome screen as many of them are spoofs and does not include topics that they claim to cover. What we can recommend is searching ...

Silverlight based MSN Toolbar gets updated
2008-07-01 15:14:00
Last week I reviewed MSN Toolbar which is built using Silverlight technology. Today morning I noticed a slight change in the toolbar as it got updated automatically. The toolbar now features local weather forecast which in my opinion is a very nice touch and adds more value to the toolbar. The Windows Live search portion has also been updated. Previously we could only search for Web, Images, Video, News, Maps & Local from the toolbar but now more options have been added so now we can also search for Products, QnA and xRank. You can see your local weather forecast on the right corner of the toolbar. Clicking on weather pops up a nice looking window which shows the forecast in detail. The new MSN Toolbar version is 3.0.270.0 and the Application version is 3.0.0426.0. Download MSN Toolbar from http://toolbar.msn.com Taimur Asad (Via Startup Meme)
Bill Gates - The End of an Era
2008-06-29 15:05:00
We have already covered about the legacy of Bill Gates here but I just thought I should add something about the man who I idolized for the larger part of my not so long life. So here?s is to the man who changed the way I interact with computers! For many, Bill Gates and his company Microsoft would more be remembered for the evil-doings and monopolization which led to their domination on desktop PCs but for me Bill Gates is a business man in a true sense of word. He truly knew the art of doing business. He broadened the company?s range of products,  and then pushed it so aggressively that it led to the the domination and success of his products. Bill Gates predicted ?a computer in every home and on every desk??.and today its indeed in every home & on every desk and over 90% of those run Windows. So for me Gates will be remembered as one of the best-known business men and one of the best entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. And Now June 27, 2008 marks the End of an...

Silverlight based MSN Toolbar for IE
2008-06-26 22:14:00
Do you use toolbar with your web browser? Toolbar s for me are the thing of the past. Gone are the days when I used to try toolbars from Google, Microsoft, Yahoo or AOL to be able to have features such as tabbed browsing, searching from the browser etc because back then such features were not a standard part of any of the available web browsers. Later Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and likes started pushing these toolbar just to get more market share in search as their respective search engines were built into the toolbars. This resulted in toolbars getting bloated with unnecessary features which halted our web experience. This was the time when I stopped using toolbars Then came Opera and Firefox who in their newer versions of browsers added tabbed browsing, built-in search as the standard feature of their web browser. Microsoft later too added these features as a standard in Internet Explorer 7. All this changed when a few months ago I was invited by Microsoft Connect to test out thei...

Microsoft sends cake to Firefox team

The IE team at Redmond HQ of Microsoft has send a fancy little cake to Mozilla?s Montain View HQ as a good gesture to join in the celebration of the release of Firefox 3. Well what can I say about this? Didnt expect this coming from Microsoft. I was very surprised when I got to know that IE team also sent in a cake when Firefox 2.0 was launched. If this wasnt enough, Mozilla revealed today that the Firefox team kept the IE logo piece frozen since then! Kudos to Microsoft & IE team for showing such a good gesture!

HTC Windows Mobile 7 phone by Q1 2009
2008-06-16 17:01:00
This date is earlier than we expected but still not this year as some "manufacturer" (in fact: re-seller of models designed and made in Taiwan and China) claimed. Since HTC is biggest manufacturer of Windows Mobile phones with market share of over 80%, so it is interesting to see what HTC says about Windows Mobile 7: At the HTC Touch Diamond launch in South Africa, I had the opportunity to have a little chat with Kevin Chen, General Manager of HTC for MEA and CIS. Besides having an in-depth explanation on the innovations that the Touch Diamond brings, Chen told me that HTC is planning to unveil a device with Google Android Operating System by Q4 of this year, and a Windows Mobile 7 by Q1 of next year, atleast that?s what?s on the planned release schedule from HTC. To learn more, visit related story about Windows Mobile 7. Commentary: the launch date of HTC's first phone powered by Google Android is nothing new because it was announced in many places that it is by the e...

New Features for IT Pros in Internet Explorer 8
2008-06-13 17:18:00
At this week's Tech Ed IT Pro 2008 in Orlando, IE Team announced some of the enhancements that they're making in Internet Explorer 8 to help IT Professionals deploy and manage IE8 within their organization. Here is a quick run down to all the support that IE 8 is going to offer for IT Professionals: Slipstream Support in Internet Explorer 8 Deploying Internet Explorer 7 as part of Windows XP installation was v.hard and troublesome. Many IT Pros wanted to update their Windows XP images to contain IE7 by default, so IE7 gets installed as part of the OS install. To do that the IT Pros needed to boot their existing images of Windows XP, install IE7 and then recapture the image. This process roughly used to took about 2 hours per image. With Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Vista this isn't the case anymore! as they will allow us to ?Slipstream? Internet Explorer 8 into a Vista image so that when you deploy Vista it already contains Internet Explorer 8.  Slipstream IE8  will only take...

SQL Server 2008 RC 0 released to TechNet & MSDN
2008-06-09 15:09:00
Microsoft made available to select testers on June 5 the near-final Release Candidate (RC) 0 of SQL Server 2008 . As of Friday, Microsoft had released the latest test build of its database to Tech Net Plus and Microsoft Developer Network(MSDN) subscribers only. The new build wasn?t on the private Connect test site. (Not sure if availability has changed since then.) Microsoft officially ?launched? SQL Server 2008 in February, alongside Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Server 2008. Earlier this year, Microsoft officials said they were planning to deliver SQL Server 2008 by mid-2008. Company officials last week reiterated Microsoft?s more recent guidance: The company is planning to deliver the final build of SQL Server 2008 in the third calendar quarter of 2008. All of the versions of SQL Server 2008 ? Developer, Enterprise, Standard, Web and Workgroup ? are part of the latest RC 0 download. Source: Mary-Jo Foley Taimur Asad (The Microsoft "Wow" Blog!)

Windows Live Wave 3.0 - the end of Live Orb?
2008-06-08 11:47:00
With Live Wave 1.0 & Live Wave 2.0 well behind us, Windows Live team at Microsoft has been working on the next version of its online services (Windows Live Wave 3) for quite a while now and it is said to carry a new theme for header UI. While Live Wave 2 Suite brought us an All-in-one online installer which included Windows Live Messenger 8.5, Mail, Writer and Photo Gallery, it also introduced a new theme for header UI for all the Windows Live services that actually marked the end of Flair (version 1.0 UI for Windows Live).   LiveSide is reporting about the new header that will be released when Windows Live Wave 3 launches. This new header while in many ways looks much better & cooler than the current one also marks the end of Live Orb. Orb has become a standard symbol in many of Microsoft services and applications. Introduced first with Windows Vista (replacing the Start button) and Office 2007 (replacing the File menu), Orb is basically a trademark button that provides su...
Silverlight 2 Beta 2, Expression Blend 2.5 June Preview Released
2008-06-07 11:58:00
Silverlight 2 Beta 2 was released today.  You can download both Silverlight 2 Beta2 and the Visual Studio and Expression Blend tools support to target it here. Beta2 adds a lot of new features (more details below), but is still a 4.6 MB download that takes less than 10 seconds to install on a machine.  It does not require the .NET Framework or any other software to be installed for it to work, and all features work cross-browser on both Mac and Windows machines.  These features will also be supported on Linux via the Moonlight 2 release. Silverlight 2 Beta2 supports a go-live license that allows you to start using and deploying Silverlight 2 for commercial applications. There will be some API changes between Beta2 and the final release, so you should expect that applications you write with Beta2 will need to make some updates when the final release comes out.  But we think that these changes will be straight-forward and relatively easy, and that you can begin planning and starting co...

Microsoft Videos BETA launched: Another attempt to push Silverlight?
2008-06-06 23:11:00
Microsoft Videos lets us explore and watch Microsoft?s collection of online video. The whole experience is built using Microsoft Silverlight platform. The site is a collection of all types of Microsoft videos which includes demos, advertisements, tutorials, press releases, Microsoft Research videos etc. We can scan through Quick Picks for the latest videos, or enter a search for a particular video and we can also choose from one of the given Video Categories. I personally liked the site. It has got some useful demo videos especially for Expression Studio and I being a developer loved it as it isnt quite easy to find free demo videos for Microsoft Expression suite on the Internet. Though I also think that the site wont really appeal the average Joe and it seems like the only purpose of Microsoft behind this website is to push their Silverlight technology more into main stream.

Windows Live for TV - another broken promise?
2008-06-03 22:28:00
Its been ages since we last heard or read anything from Windows Live team about Windows Live for TV (codename Orbit), let alone any working build for Windows Live for TV. When the project was first announced (I managed to get on the beta program), there was lots of interest specially when Windows Messenger was left out of Vista Media Center. But now if you check out the official team blog of the Windows Live for TV team, you would notice that the last post which they posted was on 10th April 2007 which gives us a clear indication that this service is not going anywhere in fact it probably also means that this Live service like a few others is now officially dead. It?s a real shame that this very promising & one of the most awaited service for Windows Media Center is looking like not coming after all. For those of you who dont know what Windows Live for TV was supposed to offer: Windows Live for TV was built for Windows Media Center to bring popular Windows Live services like Wi...

Windows 7 debuts at D6, includes Multi-touch!

For years Microsoft has been investing in many forms of natural input in order to simplify the way people interact with their PC's and devices. The advent of the original Windows graphical user interface forever changed the way people used their PC's. Today, advances in pen and handwriting technology in Windows Vista offers students a natural and intuitive way to capture searchable notes and diagrams in the classroom. Others are using this technology to quietly capture pen based notes during meetings. Speech recognition, something which was once considered science fiction, is enabling many Windows Vista users to see, hear, and use their computers for the very first time.
