Microsoft's Windows Vista is only weeks away from public consumption, so it's time to start getting informed on all of the new features and intricacies of the new OS, if you haven't already done so that is.  APC Magazine has an informative article on-line today dealing with Vista's new image-based installation process. "Vista's installation process is dramatically different to any previous version of Windows: rather than being an 'installer', the install DVD is actually a preinstalled copy of Windows that simply gets decompressed onto your PC.

Samsung is trying to marry nanotube technology to LCD displays and make great looking, inexpensive screens. They're in a footrace with all the other manufacturers to determine what kind of technology will ultimately sit in your living room and bore or entertain you: The prototype essentially represents the marriage of two separate avenues of TV technology and could help dramatically lower the cost of LCD TVs in the future. Samsung has already been experimenting with carbon nanotube TVs called field-emitter displays, or FEDs.

Well, we've determined that Sony can make at least one Playstation3. So we've got that going for us: Thousands of lucky gamers tested the PS3 over the weekend at the 2007 Sony Expo in Honolulu, two weeks before the debut. Almost all were males - from boys with braces and baggy jeans to gray-haired baby boomers. They crowded around two gaming booths with the sleek, lean, black machine behind a plastic case. "The graphics are crazy, way better than the second one," said Doug Morrison, a 20-year-old University of Hawaii student. "It's more realistic. It's smoother. It doesn't have any glitches." The article is slightly sketchy on details, but contains all the items Sony is hoping for,... Read more...

Well, the cat and mouse game continued today with the latest release of FairUse4WM version 1.3.
