I saw a lot of articles about Google Wave,a creative tool which helps to make some communications to friends easier than ever before.It’s still on the progress of beta stage,so it could only be tried upon invitation.
I got one invitation from Google recently and I went to use it immediately.I think I need some time to watch the video clips of know-how in order to use the service smoothly.Share with your guys here!
I could provide 8 invitations to the friends who are interested in it.If you want to try the fresh stuff,please just drop the words to me.
Ok,I’m going to start my learning program.See you guys!
Firefox Beta 3.6 had come out for several weeks.In fact I had tried it when it firstly launched,but I don’t feel so comfortable on it because quite a lot of add-ons were not compatible and I even met some crashes in one-hour usage.
However,with the help of thousands of beta users,it has been going to run properly and most of functions could work well.Firefox also introduced Add-on Compatibility Reporter which could mention the author of add-ons for any compatibility issues.You could check up the details of the Beta of Firefox 3.6 / Gecko 1.9.2 introducing several new features for users to evaluate:

Microsoft spoke out recently that they will stop the general availability of downloading Windows 7 beta on February 10th,2009.The shutdown will take place into 3 phrases over the next few weeks:
Starting January 27th, the Windows 7 page will be updated with a warning that time is running out on downloading the Windows 7 Beta and that we will be limiting downloads shortly. People will be encouraged to register and start the download of the Windows 7 Beta sooner rather than later.
February 10th, new downloads of the Windows 7 Beta will no longer be available. People who have already started their Windows 7 Beta download and have not yet finished will still be able to finish their download and are encouraged to do so.
February 12th, people will no longer be able to complete their download of the Windows 7 Beta. Anyone who hasn’t finished downloading the Windows 7 Beta will be unable to do so.
However,product key will be able to get even after February 12th,2009.In addition,MSDN and TechNet Subscribers are not bound to the above information.
Thus,if you still want to try the fresh tech,you’d hurry up to download it the sooner the better.
If you have installed Windows 7 and been running it in a computer which is running Windows Vista as well,you’ll exactly find that it works much faster than Windows Vista.Why?
You should know that the big problems of Windows Vista are the incompatibility with quite a number of software(well,a bit improvements in SP1) and the high requirement of specs.It avoids some purchasing demand of consumers because it may cost some inconvenience and a price to upgrade the system too.For most people,that is not a worth-to-do thing.Windows 7 is trying to erase this bad history and so make a much popular requirement instead.Let’s see the comparison of minimum recommended specs.
Windows Vista(Home Premium/Business/Ultimate):
1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 GB of system memory
40 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space
Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128 MB memory (to enable the Aero theme)
Internet access (to download the Beta and get updates)
And yes, like anything tech-related, these specs could change.
Though you may find the requirements are so similar,from my tests I feel that Windows 7 occupies less physical memory than Windows Vista when both of them are running with those beautiful Aero themes.I’ll post up the screenshots of the real usages later in order to make a detailed analysis.
All right,if you haven’t yet downloaded Windows 7 and had a try,you may refer to my previous step-by-step post and then enjoy it.I hope you will feel good on it.
As we could get from lots of media platforms,Windows 7 has a very high expectation and it seems to run with a pretty good performance which was indicated by tech editors and some official sources.In International CES 2009,Steve Ballmer announced that Windows 7 beta would available to download for public test and now it’s the day.
At first,Microsoft only decided to have a 2.5 million unit limit of total downloading.However,we have been told that they have terminated the rule for the next two weeks(Thru January 24) as a response of an enormous surge in demand.Follow the steps below and I’m sure you can get it easily and quickly.
2.Scroll down the page and find the section I mention below.
Select the version and language you want to test on and then click GO.
3.You will redirect to a page where needs you to log in your Windows Live ID and fill up some personal details including an Email address.Please note that the Email address must be valid as it will be used for a verification purpose.
4.Check your email box and click the link provided in the email.
5.You should be now in the download page which shows a product key as well.
Please write down the production key because it will be used to register the product during the installation.After all,click Download Now to start the trip to Windows 7.
I wind up my instruction here and hopefully it helps you.Have a nice day!
I had introduced Ubuntu 8.04 Beta in last week.As I am just a beginner of using Ubuntu,there are points I need to learn.So in the past several days I spent most of time on trying and testing it.I find that Ubuntu builds a simple but beautiful design for the whole system.I did some screen shots and now share with you.
