Thanks to a few delays today, I really came to the party late. I was looking forward to seeing Google’s I/O presentations live online at http://www.youtube.com/GoogleDevelopers. I sat down, and started watching about 5 minutes into the presentation.
What Soluto intends to do is allow the user to focus on the boot process, identify what applications are slowing down a computer and then let the user improve this by disabling certain items. Soluto has also embarked on creating what’s called the PC Genome which looks to map problems and solutions in a large database allowing for future streamlining of the solution process.
Hello again folks. For those of you that read my blog from time to time, I say thank you. I appreciate you taking the time to read what I have to say. I will continue working hard to make this blog the best it can be – providing you news, details, interesting stories and other stuff from the technology landscape.
Eventually their Twitter stream starts growing to point where they can’t possibly keep up with all the tweets. A new study by PARC and MIT sheds some light on this problem and they even offer a new client.
This device will not be available here in Toronto until sometime in May – so imagine my joy at getting to play now. I really wanted to see what the hype was all about. I had heard and seen many reports – but for many, the mantra had been “You have to see it and touch it to understand how amazing it is”. So, today, I will do that.
Of the many utilities I come across (desktop/mobile/web-based), I rarely keep them or use them long enough to give them the credit due. One of the most important things you use (and probably don’t know) are the software utilities that sit on your many personal computing devices. Let me highlight some of the best I’ve seen recently.
I have come to understand some of the best ways to make use of the sometimes massive stream of data by using the keyboard only. This is great because I can see in reverse chronology what I haven’t seen before and by moving through the list with the “M” and “N” keys I can mark the articles as I go through. The trouble with this is that I always have to keep propping up the stream. Google Reader needs to offer the feature of keeping the stream centered.
What Microsoft effectively did was force millions of loyal product faithful to use their “Easy Migration” tool. Sure, easy, but a guarantee that most users understand how Microsoft really sucks. Don’t think this a major fail by Microsoft? The fact is, you may not even know what you’re missing if you haven’t seen what’s possible otherwise. The answer is in the process of migration on both platforms. Let’s take a look.
Also, installing from USB allows you to directly edit files (if you use an answer file or OEM drivers) and you’re installation will be a much faster process than reading off a traditional optical disc. In fact, if your computer doesn’t have a disc drive, it likely does have a USB port that can be booted from.
Those of you that aren’t aware, the site feed is your Blogger site’s RSS feed and contains either a short snippet of each of your blog or the entire text. The Site Feed Footer can be used to add consistent text (or links) to the bottom of each feed entry – much in the same manner as you might create a document feeder.
