Firefox Is Slaughtering Internet Explorer

Written by IT News on 2:27 AM

In Europe
By: Marius Oiaga, Technology News Editor softpedia.com

Stuck at a negligible share of the browser market, Opera has filed a formal complaint with the European Union Antitrust Commission pointing to the bundling of Internet Explorer into Windows, as the reason for what it referred to as a lack of consumer choice. But Firefox seems to have no problems growing from under Internet Explorer and, furthermore, dislodging large chunks of IE's audience and converting them to open source. In Europe, Firefox is in fact the author of a veritable IE onslaught. The massacre is restricted to a shift in audience, but on some European markets, Firefox is on the verge of overtaking IE and becoming the dominant browser.

The latest statistics provided by Internet metrics company XiTi for Europe bear nothing but ill news for Microsoft. (Be advised, I performed the translation for myself, and my French is a tad rusty, soo...) "After a period of stagnation from June to September 2007, the market share of Mozilla Firefox experienced another growth in the majority of the European markets covered by XiTi, toward the end of the year. In this manner, in 2007, Firefox's market share increased a total of 5%, reaching 28% in December 2007," XiTi revealed.


According to the data provided by XiTi, Firefox increased its market share in approximately 90% of all European countries in 2007. As you can see from the adjacent image, even though it is in French I trust that you will manage to recognize the countries and the adjacent percentages without any problems, Firefox's market share is 45.4% in Finland, with 44.6% in Slovenia, 42.4% in Poland, 41.2% in Slovakia, and 40.3% in Hungary.

On the markets mentioned above, Firefox enjoys a market share of over 40%. But considering the overall European picture, the open source browser is still trailing Internet Explorer. IE accounts for a total of 66.1% of the EU browser market, while Firefox is just at 28%. Still, at the current level of growth, and with Firefox 3.0 dropping almost a year ahead of Internet Explorer 8, Mozilla has quite a healthy chance at becoming no. 1 with Firefox, at least on some EU markets.

Windows Media Player 11

Written by IT News on 10:40 PM

Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP offers great new ways to store and enjoy all your music, video, pictures, and recorded TV. Play it, view it, and sync it to a portable device for enjoying on the go or even share with devices around your home—all from one place.


Simplicity in Design

When designing Windows Media Player 11, we looked at the needs of a wide range of users—from people who are just getting started with digital media to discriminating audiophiles with very large collections on their PCs. By incorporating this feedback into the design process, we made some significant changes to the Player to deliver a simpler, more visual way to navigate music, video, and other digital media and further improve the overall experience.

Streamlining and shortcuts

To simplify the Windows Media Player interface, the classic menus are now turned off by default, but still accessible by right-clicking anywhere on the Player's frame.

Fast access to settings

Right-click or click the down arrow that is assigned to each activity tab (Now Playing, Library, Rip, Burn, and Sync) to reveal menu options that are relevant to each respective tab. This new feature offers quick access to the most common Player settings.

Storing your entire digital media collection in Windows Media Player 11 has many great benefits, but what about options for enjoying your digital media library away from your computer? New devices like the iriver clix and the Creative Zen Vision:M offer a great experience when teamed with Windows Media Player 11, helping you stay connected with your music, video, and pictures no matter where you are. Check out more great devices.

Simplified device setup

Syncing portable devices with Windows Media Player 11 is as simple as 1-2-3. Windows Media Player 11 now features a smart, easy-to-use wizard that guides you through device sync after connecting a device for the first time. You can simply connect one of the more than 100 Windows Media-enabled devices and Windows Media Player 11 will automatically recognize it and allow you to customize the name of the device. The Player then defaults to the Sync tab with an icon of your device, enabling quick and easy syncing of content. You can either choose to drag content to the Sync list or set up a permanent sync relationship using Auto Sync.

Yahoo! Cannot Hold Its Team Together Anymore

Written by IT News on 2:44 AM

Another exec leaving
By: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor

The Sunnyvale-based company has recently invested a great deal in its advertising platform, hoping that it would turn the slope it has been on for two years now into a slight increase which would hold promise for the future. That hasn’t been the case, though, and its income has suffered a major blow, on a 42 percent drop from the previous quarter.

How is Yahoo! going to attempt to save itself yet again this quarter, I do not know,

with one of its high ranking executives leaving the company. Richard Frankel is no ordinary exec, if anyone were able to do that pretty much by himself, he would have been the most likely to. Frankel was in charge with behavioral targeting and marketing. Link with the investing in advertising and see that he was not a pawn in the game, he was more like the knight or the tower, if there was to be only one in a chess game.

His destination is SocialMedia Networks, where he will be taking office as Chief Operating Office (COO). In other words, he’s left a leaking cruiser and jumped on an Aircraft Carrier. That’s the difference between his old job and the new one. Yahoo heading downhill while social media applications and advertising within them is the new hot spot (it probably won’t be long until Google makes a strong push in that area as well).

As an example, look at how hugely successful applications for social networks like Facebook and MySpace have turned out to be. Whether they will last and pull through the years to come or will at some point become obsolete is yet to be seen, but the Web 2.0 movement and feeling is pointing that they won’t just fade away. He’s made a good personal move and struck a deadly blow to Yahoo.

Introducing Windows 7, Codename Translucency, Milestone Sinofsky

Written by IT News on 2:21 AM

After leaked details, screenshots and videos, Microsoft finally talks Windows 7
By: Marius Oiaga, Technology News Editor

Introducing... Windows 7, codename Translucency, Milestone Sinofsky... After a diluvian leak of Windows 7 information, from intimate details to screenshots and videos, Microsoft has finally managed to talk Windows 7. The Redmond company has been hard at work on the next version of the Windows Operating system, as soon as it was done with Windows Vista. Throughout 2007, Microsoft has given details about the next Windows iteration. Windows 7 will be delivered in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors, with a new core, the MinWin kernel stripped down of all dependencies with the remaining components of the operating system. And there was even talk of an official timetable, initially interpreted as pointing to 2010 for the delivery of Windows 7.

The debut of 2008 brought with it Windows 7 Milestone 1 Build 6.1.6519.1, shifting the focus away from the imminent releases of Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Windows XP Service Pack 3. And once the Windows 7 genie was out of the bottle, details came pouring in about Windows 7 M1. From the new Windows Media Center to the official timetable featuring M2 in April/May 2007, M3 in the third quarter and the Betas, Release Candidates and the RTM date apparently all squeezed into 2009. Apparently, because Microsoft keeps completely mum on Windows 7.

And then there were the leaked screenshots of Windows 7. The images were taken with a grain of salt, and the high level of skepticism survived even the availability of a low-quality video of Windows 7. But outside of leaked information, the muzzle put on Windows 7 is functioning to perfection, gagging all details. Steven Sinofsky, Senior Vice President, Windows and Windows Live Engineering Group, is responsible for erecting a wall of silence around the successor of Windows Vista. The official policy over at Microsoft, concerning the Windows 7 project, is a new translucent strategy, as opposed to transparency. Essentially, Sinofsky will not promise and underdeliver, but instead will say nothing in the hope that users will take all that Microsoft will eventually has to give with both arms.

On the heels of leaked details, screenshots and videos, Microsoft finally talked Windows 7, but of course that the Redmond company has nothing to say. "We are currently in the planning stages for Windows 7 and expect the development to take approximately 3 years since the release of Windows Vista. The specific release date will be determined once the company meets its quality bar for release," said a Microsoft representative to CRN.

"We are currently in the planning stages for Windows 7 and expect it will take approximately 3 years to develop. The specific release date will be determined once the company meets its quality bar for release," a Microsoft spokesperson revealed to The WinVista Club. "We’re continuing to work with our partners on the development of Windows 7, and are not sharing any additional information at this time."

Sure enough, doing the math on the potential dates for the final release of Windows 7 is rather easy. Taking into consideration the consumer launch of Vista in January 2007, Windows 7 will come in 2010. But judging from the release to manufacturing to businesses dates of the latest Windows client, Windows 7 is indeed aimed at a time before the 2009 holiday season. But predicting what Microsoft will actually do is an entirely different matter altogether.

Who’s Second in the Search Market? Google Is!

Written by IT News on 4:01 PM

A situation the company isn’t familiar with
By: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor

No, nothing happened to the Mountain View-based Internet giant, the catch is that the place the survey has been conducted in is China, and Google never owned the majority of the shares there. Baidu has and, by the looks of it, it will still reign supreme for a couple of years. After all, the China-based search engine had more searches run through it than Microsoft on a global level. You gotta respect that!

Baidu had a 60.1 percent of the pie, according to the Q4 study conducted by research firm Analysts International. Google trailed with (only) 25.9 percent and the third position was taken by Yahoo! China, with 9.6 percent. Things, despite looking pretty cloudy for Google, aren’t all that grim, it actually recorded a growth of 2.2 percent compared to the previous quarter.

Baidu, on the other hand, did not record significant changes in its percentages, and put together with its runner-up and the bronze winning Yahoo, the three accounted for about 96 percent of the total search market. The total figures, reported into local currency, mean about 946.6 million yuan, roughly 131.4 million U.S. dollars. Compared to the figures from other countries, this might not sound as much for the Mountain View-based company. Let’s not forget, though, that the Chinese Internet using community is the second largest in the world, after that of the United States, with 210 million users at the end of 2007. Mind you, it is still growing and bound to become the largest, early this year.

Google’s increase could be in part credited to the mobile short message search service that it has launched since the beginning of the fourth quarter.

Baidu is currently considering expanding into the Japanese Internet search market, where Google is the leader. They seem to want to battle it wherever there is a battlefield available.

First Google Earth Update for 2008

Written by IT News on 9:50 AM

Many, many additions
by: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor

They’ve kept a low profile so far, but when they came up with it, it was well worth it. The Google Lat Long Blog comes with a post from Wei Luo, a senior GIS Specialist detailing all of the changes and updates that have happened. In decreasing order, based on the level of how exciting the additions are, here they come:

First, they’ve made tremendous work with the roads in 26 countries, adding and updating to have everything up to date in Russia, Malaysia, Thailand, Aruba, Bahamas, Belize, Bermuda, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, St. Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Bodies of water will be labeled in whatever language you have the Google Earth software set to, and places names in Taiwan, Russia, Australia, New Zealand Brazil and Turkey will be labeled in their local language. Not very cool, but definitely useful for non-English speakers that want to use Google Earth.

National Geographic, one of their more popular layers, has been expanded to three new continents, Europe, Asia and South America. I don’t know if you understand the magnitude of that, but as an example, they have included everything, "from China's fearsome Taklimakan Desert, where Marco Polo traveled, to the hyacinth macaws of Brazil." I think it’s too much to ask for a complete Discovery History layer, right?

And last but by no means least, a team of USGS scientists have put some work into re-engineering the Earthquake layer to provide better and more accurate information. If you want to, you could even zoom out further enough and observe that quakes most often happen where tectonic plates meet / collide and, by following the line of such natural catastrophes, you easily see the boundaries of the plates. Now, I'd look at it, and I will, especially because every site is linked to information about the magnitude, depth and date of the earthquake.

Sony ericsson w960i

This phone is very functional for me. It has a good mp3 when you want to listen to music, a camera when there’s a breath-taking view to take a picture of, and a smart phone when doing business. Sure it lags sometimes, but many phones these days has some lag. Can’t blame SE for that.

It has 8GB onboard memory; great Walkman player; autofocus camera with dual-LED lights; Wi-Fi.

The bad is, Uneven keypad lighting; poorly located Back button; no built-in 3.5mm audio port; dismal battery life; laggy performance.

The W960i Walkman may be the company’s flagship music-phone, but its various shortcomings take away most of the hype on the handset.

Overall, do you agree if W960i was One of the Best SE phones ever?

You can own sony ericsson w960i with about $651.00 at ebay.com

Domain Tasting to Be Disallowed by Google

Written by IT News on 9:12 PM

AdSense generating conflict…
By: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor

When somebody wants to register a new domain, he/she normally wants to see whether it would be a seller or a bust. That’s where domain tasting gets involved, it is a practice of registrants using the five-day "grace period" at the beginning of a domain registration for ICANN-regulated generic top-level domains to test the marketability of a domain name. During this period, when a registration must be fully refunded by the domain registry, a cost-benefit analysis is conducted by the registrant on the viability of deriving income from advertisements being placed on the domain's web site, according to Wikipedia.

Google has recently thought about banning the newly registered domain names from participating in its Google for Domain Names program. Being the king and queen of the Internet, Google’s decision, if it goes through, will have domain tasting as a process on its knees, waiting to be beheaded.

Jay Westerdal of Domain Tools told Duncan Riley of TechCrunch that: "It was disclosed in court that one partner that Google had was generating as much as $3 million dollars a month from the practice and that was after Google’s revenue share. Oversee.net and other companies have been using this practice for years and it will have a direct impact on them. The gravy train of free money might be coming to a halt very fast. This policy change at Google should be announced to the channel partners soon and it will have a huge echoing impact on the Industry….I think this is a return of the 'Be Good' motto Google had a few years ago. Google has been quietly enabling this practice for years now. This is a smart policy move on Google’s part to ward off impending litigation that might have hit them in the coming months."

Taking into account that he is involved as heavily as can be in the process of domain tasting, his words come bearing an even heavier sentence. Let’s hope that it doesn’t come to that. And even if it does, this will just open the door to a competitor, but the scale of the business from now on… not looking good.

Nvidia Linux Display Driver 169.09 Released

Written by IT News on 3:46 PM

Fixes important bugs!
by: Marius Nestor, Linux Editor | softpedia.com

One month ago, Nvidia, the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, released version 169.07 of their popular video driver, which introduced support for GeForce 8800 GT, GeForce 8800 GTS 512 and GeForce 8800M graphic cards (among other bugfixes and improvements).

Two days ago, they released a new driver, the Nvidia Linux Display Driver version 169.09, which is actually more like a patch for that wicked 100% fan speed bug encountered in all GeForce 8 cards. This bug was introduced in the previous release!

The highlists of this release are:

• Fixed a problem causing the fan on some GPUs to always run at full speed.
• Fixed a bug that caused the X driver to crash if the X.Org GLX extension module was loaded instead of NVIDIA's.
• Improved the X driver's awareness of the current notebook docking status.
• Fixed brightness control on HP Compaq notebooks.
• Fixed a bug in the Linux/i2c algorithm driver implementation that prevented core transfer types from succeeding.

As you can see, this new driver fixes another important bug which caused a crash if the GLX extension module was loaded instead of NVIDIA's one. Moreover, the brightness control for HP Compaq laptops is fixed now.

How to install?

Log out of your current session and hit CTRL+ALT+F1 key combination, in order to enter a text mode session. Log in as root (System Administrator), go to the folder where you've downloaded the Nvidia driver installer and type:

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.09-pkg1.run
Then, follow the on-screen instructions to install the video driver.

I guess Nvidia made some Linux users (read: GeForce 8 users) happy with this driver which will let them fully enjoy their video cards capabilities.

A Big NO to Floating AdSense Ads

Written by IT News on 3:39 PM

Official stand on that has finally come
By: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor | softpedia.com

The rumor that "floated" around a while ago about the possibility that Google might introduce floating ads has seen its end today, as an official Google AdSense representative said that it would never happen. The discussion was interesting to follow, the two parts arguing whether the money-making scheme would prevail in Google’s future orientation or "this type of ads being against the Mountain View based company’s policy" would win the day.

You know the type of ads that just pop out from the background and attract your attention to them. One possible hint as to this never coming to be could be the fact that, back in November, Google reduced the clickable area around its advertisements in an attempt to reduce erroneous clicks. And with that in mind, a floating ad would most likely be a drawback to implementing and backing this idea: they get more clicks than any other type of online ads just because they’re not there one second and in the next moment you find out you’re redirected to some random page because you clicked it.

The statement was short and straight to the point: "I've checked with our policy specialists and placing Google ads in a floating script would be a violation of AdSense policy," AdSense Pro Jordan wrote on the Google Groups forum thread addressing the issue.

Furthermore, some of the users using this technique saw their accounts being deleted and their profiles removed because of it. This must be because of the close connection to what Google is trying to become, the one address somebody would go for anything related to the Internet. No mishaps are to be allowed and the wrongdoers would be harshly penalized if anything happened.

I’m just happy that floating ads aren’t going to happen because I know how annoying they can be, in case they have the X for closing it very small or not there at all, as I’ve seen some. It’s damn frustrating to not be able to read a part of an article because there’s an ad for something probably stupid floating over it.

Vista SP1 Confirmed for February 15

Written by IT News on 6:24 AM

Microsoft still not breathing a single word on the RTM of Vista SP1 and XP SP3
by: Marius Oiaga, Technology News Editor | softpedia.com

The Windows Vista Service Pack 1 is just around the corner. Despite the fact that Microsoft continues to point to the first quarter of 2008 as the deadline for the delivery of Vista's first service pack, it appears that the refresh will drop as early as next month. According to the Redmond company, Vista SP1 is planned for release by the end of March 2008. Microsoft has not shifted from the official timetable and failed to update it in accordance with the development of the operating system. However, it appears now that February 15 was confirmed as the RTM date for Windows Vista SP1.

Mid February 2008 is a more realistic date for the launch of Vista SP1, and one that is at the end of the natural course of evolution of the service pack's development process. Taiwanese news outlet DigiTimes, doing a story on the DRAM industry in 2008, cited Pei-lin Pai, a spokesman for DRAM manufacturer Nanya, saying: "the PC market will rebound in the second quarter. The launch of an updated version of Microsoft Vista on February 15, if its prices do not go up too much compared to its previous version, may help boost DRAM sales," (emphasis added).

Although Microsoft continues not to breathe a single word on the official RTM date of Vista SP1, it appears that the Nanya representative managed to spill the beans on the availability of the service pack. But even without confirmation from the Redmond company, the fact of the matter remains that there is an intimate connection between the release to manufacturing date of Windows Server 2008 and Vista Service Pack 1. Microsoft has virtually synchronized the development milestones for the first service pack to its latest Windows client and the testing releases of its last 32-bit server operating system.

In this context, back in December 2007, Microsoft made available for the general public, Release Candidates for both Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008. Then, as Windows Server 2008 moved into Escrow, the final stage before RTM, the Redmond company dropped a Refresh for Windows Vista SP1 in early January 2008. At this point in time, multiple sources outside of the company have pointed to February for the RTM of Windows Server 2008.

Such a scenario also means that Vista SP1 is close to be made available in February, but with Microsoft emphasizing that, in the end, customer feedback is the deal-breaker when it comes to shipping the final version of the service pack. But, a mid February release also makes sense because Microsoft has yet to ship two prerequisite updates for Vista SP1 that will be dropped with next month's patch cycle.

In the shadow of Vista SP1 and XP Sp3, the Redmond company is also hammering away at Windows XP Service Pack 3. The last signs from Microsoft when it comes down to the third and final service pack for Windows XP were made toward the end of December 2006, with the public availability for download of the Release Candidate standalone package. XP SP3 RC was released on the heels of Vista SP1 and Windows Server 2008 and, as such, it only makes sense that the RTM version will also follow the final builds of the Windows client service pack and the server operating system.

Google’s Search Share Drops

Written by IT News on 7:09 PM

Still kicks the others’ a**es though
By: Vlad Constandes, SEO News Editor | softpedia.com

Nielsen has released the numbers for the search share ratio for December 2007 and they confirmed what needed no confirmation, that Google rules the land, that it is king of the castle and an array of expressions similar in meaning. There are really not enough words to explain the way the Mountain View-based company has risen from a garage project to ruling the market ahead of names that have a history on the Internet and with huge impact.

Over half of all the queries run in the United States have had the Google logo standing right next to them: 56.3 percent, or 4,062,536,000, according to the stats. The runner-up, Yahoo!, has had a little over a quarter of that number, 17.7 percent with 1.2 billion. Even lower than that we find Windows Live Search, 5 million shy of reaching the billion round number and there’s no point in digging even deeper.

Despite the obvious dominance, Google’s Search Share actually dropped from 57.7 in November to 56.3 in December. A descending train that the other major player in the field, Yahoo!, has jumped on as the Sunnyvale-based company saw its percentages drop from 17.9 to 17.7. All of that came to be good news for Microsoft who saw a rise like it hadn’t seen for ages with the missing percentages from the previous two gatherings under its protective wing: 1.8 % higher than the last month with 13.8 % compared to 12%.

The Nielsen data came on the heels of comScore releasing the numbers that showed how, every year, fewer and fewer Americans trust the results returned by the search engines. With Google owning such a big piece of the pie, it was only logical for it to be the number one target affected by the lack of trust.

Genius Traveler 355 Laser Mouse – A Perfect Match for the Touchpad Haters

Written by IT News on 8:40 AM

The mouse is smaller even than its driver setup file
By: Bogdan Botezatu, Hardware Editor | softpedia.com

Genius has made a habit of delivering good quality products at a reasonable price. I may even say that it is the perfect clone for what A4tech once was: affordable technology. Although everything that is affordable might mislead you into thinking that it's implicitly bad because everyone can afford it, you'll be surprised if only you gave it a try.

The Traveler 355 Laser Mouse is not a gamers' tool at all. It is a regular mouse for day-by-day use (web surfing, office applications and God knows what else) with some important tweaks and improvements. The first thing that will draw your attention is the absence of the scroll wheel. The mouse comes with an OptoWheel - an optical sensor with a comfortable touch scroll panel that mimics the classical wheel. This is quite an interesting feature, since it allows the user to scroll not only vertically, but also horizontally.

Since it is a laptop mouse and recent models have cut down the PS2 support, the mouse connects via a spare USB port on your notebook. It also uses a laser sensor rather than a LED-based optical one, which improves its tracking power. The mouse comes with its own driver software in a 67MB setup file, but it can easily do without, except for the fact that the vertical scrolling will become unavailable.

Overall, those who do not need high-performance mice will label it as a "fine mouse". In fact, it is so fine that the market is invaded by fake Traveler 355 Laser mice: an identical plastic shell with an optical, generic mouse fitted inside it. It is the world's first OptoMouse in the world, with an unique touch sensor and a maximum resolution of 1600 dpi.

The device offers the portability of a wired, miniature mouse. Although the wires may make it less appealing as compared to the multiple wireless solutions on the market, you will surely appreciate its affordable price.

Stretch Mark Prevention

Written by IT News on 7:38 AM

Many research and studies have shown that stretch marks are among the top five causes for insecurity in women. During pregnancy, women are at an elevated risk for developing stretch marks, also called striate, because of the rapid and sudden growth of their body. Stretch marks are formed when underlying tissue grows faster than the skin layers covering it, causing small tears in the epidermal surface. Scar tissue then proceeds to grow in these tears, creating stretch marks.

Each year, a great number of mothers search for treatments to remove their stretch marks. Often this process is made simply with a stretch mark cream applied at the home, while in other cases more invasive solutions are sought, such as laser treatments and chemical peels. Home remedies have also become increasingly popular.

And if you are a woman need further assistance in prevent stretch marks, there's an online site dedicated to reviewing stretch mark treatments.

Diva's Skin care Blog (www.divas-blog.com) is designed to cater to the skin needs of individuals. It will open you to the world of elaborate skin care therapies, skin-related problems, skin care products and cosmetic technology. Simply said, it is your very own skin care parlor, dermatologist and beautician all rolled into one.

Once you’ve gotten them, you can take measures to remove them with creams such as Retin-A or laser treatments. Several of these creams work under the same principal, but differ in how they apply their individual methods. This is why it is a good idea to initially shop around a little. One of the products in the market used today is the revitol stretch mark cream.

But what works well for one person may not work as effectively for you. The growth in this industry is proof, however, that these products do work. The only way you will know for sure what kind of success you have is to give it a go for yourself.

Forget about Hacking Techniques – the New Vista SP1 RC Refresh Is Publicly Available

Written by IT News on 6:37 AM

Free for all
By: Marius Oiaga, Technology News Editor | softpedia.com

The debut of 2008 was synonymous with the availability of a new testing milestone of Windows Vista Service Pack 1, on January 9th, 2008. At that time, the Redmond company had gone private with the testing process of the first service pack for Vista. Windows Vista SP1 Release Candidate (RC) Refresh - Build 17128 is the evolution from the public RC Vista Build 6001: Service Pack 1, v.668. Initially, the Vista SP1 RC Refresh was up for grabs exclusively via Microsoft Connect, with the company offering no indication that it planned to reopen the beta testing process to all Vista users.

Following the release of the private Vista SP1 RC Refresh is 6001.17128.080101-1935 v.774, the Vista registry script dropped through Connect was leaked to the public. The redirection script is designed to modify the Vista registry in order to permit access to the latest build of Vista SP1 RC. But the hack is no longer necessary, as Microsoft has made the Vista SP1 RC Refresh available for download to the general public. Via the Windows Vista Service Pack 1 RC Refresh Public Availability Program, users of the operating system will be able to get their hands on the service pack through Windows Update.

"You must uninstall any previous versions of Windows Vista SP1 before installing Windows Vista SP1 RC Refresh. [Just] open the Programs and Features control panel and select View installed updates. In the Microsoft Windows section, right-click Service Pack for Windows (936330) and select Uninstall.
Your system will now uninstall the previous version of Windows Vista SP1 Beta and may reboot multiple times. Please wait one hour after uninstalling a previous version of Windows Vista SP1 before installing Windows Vista SP1 RC Refresh. The installer service needs to clean up and complete the uninstall prior to installing the RC. Failing to do this can result in installation errors when installing the RC version", Microsoft advised.

The Windows Update Experience for RC Refresh Public Availability.exe weighs in at 356 KB and will take your operating system through the now traditional steps associated with the deployment of the service pack. All Vista RTM users will have to deploy the KB938371 and KB937287 updates, with those running the Enterprise or Ultimate SKUs also having to install KB935509. Back in December, Microsoft also served Vista SP1 RC1 as a standalone package available through the Download Center. This is no longer valid, and if you want the latest refresh of Vista SP1 Release Candidate build 17128 you will have to go through Windows Update.

Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Release Candidate (RC) Refresh is available for download here.

First PS4 Solid Rumor!

Written by IT News on 12:45 AM

And PS3 backwards compatibility surfaces, too
By: Alexandru Stanescu, Editor, Gaming Reviews (Consoles) | softpedia.com

Before you get overexcited, you should know that this IS a rumor, after all and it's not at all solid, at least for now. According to Gamefront.de, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan are offering now a position of software engineer, one that will have to implement backwards compatibility for the PS3 plus a future console, not specified in the job description.

Hold on for a sec... A future console? Is there a chance that we'll get to see a PS4 in a normal human lifetime? I thought that Sony were considering an early retirement from the gaming biz, having almost totally failed with the PS3. However, since they capitalized due to huge next-gen gaming device sales caused by the Wii shortage, they might have recovered both financially and in terms of morale. Half the good news of this piece of info is that finally we'll see backwards compatibility on the PS3, for the PS2, PS1 and PSP games.

It's a logical step to take and it should have been taken from the get-go, since there are lots of PS2 owners right now, who might consider a console upgrade in the next years, but would regret not being able to play their favorite titles any more. As for the PS4... I can only imagine bad things, if you ask me: a huge device, dangerous overheating problems, dual-layer Blu-ray disks, expensive games and peripherals, BUT, at least we've got backwards compatibility!

This mysterious console could as well be a portable one, but it would have to be some sort of laptop in order to be able to play all the PS3 beauties. One can only assume and check out rumors for now, as Sony might as well have the key to the ultimate portability and a decent screen plus CPU to be able to display the wonderful next-gen graphics.
