Windows 8 Appears to Reek Badly

August 22nd, 2012 1 comment

Windows 8 changes everything. That’s the paradigm Microsoft is pushing and that’s how it seems they want it. But is it what you want? Is it what businesses will want? Personally, I think NOT.  Here’s one person’s take on why they will not run it anymore: “Why I’m uninstalling Windows 8” by Tim Edwards on PCGamesN http://www.pcgamesn.com/article/why-i-m-uninstalling-windows-8. By the way, read the comments too; many people seem to think the article is totally bogus. But I think it is pretty representative of the normal reactions of a typical end user—someone who is not an expert.

Mouse Without Borders

October 4th, 2011 Comments off

A project from the Microsoft Garage, Mouse Without Borders allows you to share a mouse, keyboard, clipboard and even drag and drop files between up to four Windows PCs. This is the solution if you set up your notebook next to your desktop and want to be productive on both machines. There is a similar freeware tool that works across OSes, Synergy, but if you are only using Windows, Mouse Without Borders is a quick-and-dirty solution.
