In Memory of Windows Live Spaces

Last night Microsoft has just decided to shutdown the Windows Live Spaces and kicked our asses and gave us some generous choices to either delete or download or move our space to WordPress; And I just feel like being rapped (Not that I’ve ever been :D), I’ve been using Windows Live Spaces since 2007 (it was a beta product at that time) and I’ve seen it being updated lots of times and the last update which was about spam comments was great.

Anyway the WordPress is good (much much better), with lots of new features and I like it and I know I’m gonna be a WordPress blogger from now on. The only thing I miss here is “The Integration” with Windows Live which I like the most in the Windows Live Services.

P.S: To Sina Hakami, it is now have the “Like It” feature.

Windows 7 HomeGroup Problem

I’ve always been using Microsoft Windows Domain Controller for managing more than one computer (Which I always had more than 4) but after moving to my own appartment I’ve disjoined my two computers from the old domain. Last couple of days I’ve been playing with HomeGroup of Windows 7 and I have a weird problem.

Windows Internet Explorer 9.0

As you might read my last entry, I’ve been waiting to test the full beta version of IE 9.0, and I’m now and I have to say WOW, it is good, I mean Microsoft is in the right pass (Windows 7, IE 9.0, Kinect, WinPhone 7). It is absolutly the best web browser of them all and yes it is as good as chrome 6.0. So here is my review:
 
Pros:
1) It is fast and clear
2) The thing that every tab can be grabbed and it would be a new window: It is chrome mimic but who cares it ain’t a patent.
3) If any tab hangs the other tabs are fine now
4) The Download manager, atleast good job. If I remember right it was first announced in early beta stage of Vista but them it disapeared.
5) The messages are now appeared in the bottom of page, WOW no more popups, I hate them.
6) The "Addon Load Time Checker" it was first announced in IE 8.0 but now it is automatic.
 
Cons:
1) The font thing!!!
2) When a tab is fetching the data (nothing to show) and you switch through tabs will show the last tab contents but it could show a loading symbol
3) This one I remeber in all versions: The save page progress (File->Save) still hangs all the tabs in that browser, Man look at what chrome do about it (a progressbar in the bottom of the page would do the thing), I think this procedure is an "Ancient Code" which no one would go after it 😀 (here is where I can help)
 
If you see something else comment me about it,

DELL Inspiron DUO

Atlast after 4 years (I really don’t remember maybe 5 or more) DELL released a laptop I would like to buy, it is called "Inspiron DUO". It is a tablet and also at the same time a laptop, a new way of making tablet without a week point "THE HINGE". It is a 10" touch screen notebook (PLEASE make it a capacitive/ multi touch screen) with a dual core/ hyperthread enabled Intel Atom N550 (1.5 GHz/ 1MB cache/DDR3/ 64bit/… for more info checkout http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=50154&code=Intel%c2%ae+Atom%e2%84%a2+Processor+N550+(1M+Cache%2c+1.50+GHz) nothing else is known but I HOPE 2GB RAM and 64GB SSD and NVidia ION 2 (this is what I don’t think would be possible ’cause the N550 has a built-in VGA). The only down side of the CPU is the Intel® VT is not supported, but I’m sure it is more powerfull that N270/N280 (N270 has 47 million transistors but the N550 has 176 millions WOW!!)
 
The only things I hope are 2GB RAM and dual touch capabality and the price about 700$ and I would buy one.
 
 
P.S: DELL has just stole the BUZZ around Windows Internet Explorer 9, which would be beta(ed) to day, I’m very excited to test it and to see if microsoft is going in the right direction (and IF YES, I have to say I love you BALLMER, you’ve made them all wrongs->right; You know Vista->7, IE8->9, WinMo6.x.x.x.x->WinPho7 …)
