Looks like even a powerful corporation like Microsoft will have to bow down to pressure from its customers, and the company has decided not to cut off life support from the Windows XP operating as it originally intended to. Where major PC manufacturers were supposed to stop selling XP-powered machines from January 31st onwards this year, they successfully lobbied Microsoft to allow them to do so until June 30 – …

New Version of Apollo Brings MSN, ICQ and .Mac to Your iPhone!

by Nick

Apollo MSN DotMac ICQ iPhone

When the iPhone was released, one of the main complaints was the lack of a fully functional chat client, since Apple chose to release only the SMS program. Then came Apollo and added a client to AIM. That was very frustrating for me, because nobody uses that in my circle of friends, so I couldn’t use my iPhone to talk using instant messaging. But that doesn’t matter anymore, because Apollo …

by Edwin

vista-downgrade-xp.jpg

It is pretty ironic that Microsoft is now offering the option for Vista Business and Ultimate users to downgrade their operating systems to Windows XP instead. This move applies only to buyers of new machines that come with Vista Business/Ultimate, so those who have picked machines that are pre-loaded with Vista Home/Enterprise are out of luck. I personally have not made the jump to Vista yet when I got my …

The Fujitsu PalmSecure biometric authentication device is now on sale, with the mouse model heading the frontline. Part of the PalmSecure PC Login Kit, this offering comes with login-authentication software that enables client-side authentication and eliminating the need to use an authentication server. Guess scanning your palm’s veins for a match is much harder that forging a fingerprint, so logically speaking this approach would be more secure compared to other …

by Edwin

Tags are pretty big when it comes to finding and sorting information, what more digital songs when you have a huge collection in your home and want quick access to a particular tune within the minimal time possible. For those who tune in to HD Radio devices instead, they will soon be beneficiaries of the “tag” feature, enabling them to KIV songs heard on the radio for later purchase via …

Google comes up with flight simulator

by Edwin

Is there really nothing Google cannot do? This all conquering (seemingly anyway) company has grown from a humble startup to a mega-corporation today, and has placed itself squarely in Microsoft’s crosshairs as a viable target. The company does not seem to be able to do any wrong at all (although there were hiccups along the way), and their latest offering would be an enhanced flight simulator for Google Earth. Users …
