Written by IT News on 7:17 PM

If you have a Microsoft Windows Mobile smartphone or Pocket PC, you can use the OneNote Mobile program to take notes on your mobile device and then synchronize these notes with a section in the full version of OneNote 2007. This is useful when you want to:

  • Capture business card pictures on your phone and bring them into OneNote, where the text in the images can be searched
  • Take short text notes and voice recording reminders on your phone (for example, ideas for a project, prices, reference numbers, names, recommendations, and so on) and they will be synchronized with OneNote
  • Prepare travel information in OneNote and then transfer it to your mobile device where it will be available to you on the road


To install OneNote Mobile on your device, connect it to your computer. Then in OneNote click Tools > Options > OneNote Mobile
> Install OneNote Mobile.


Your notes on the device will be synchronized with the "OneNote Mobile Notes" notebook in OneNote 2007 whenever you connect your mobile device to your computer.

The Performance of Windows 7

Written by IT News on 6:25 PM

From start to the way it manages hardware resources, energy and applications, Windows 7 has been applauded as providing a high performance better than that in Windows Vista, even as early as before the Beta Build 6801. As far as results go, the RTM of Windows Vista leaving much to be desired, to use a euphemism, but after the implementation of the Service Pack 1, the operating system is at least offering a glimpse of gold promised release of the client. For windows 7, the promise is that the operating system will maintain a high level of performance despite Microsoft's tweaks to optimize hardware efficiency and scalability.

"Energy efficiency is improved by a reduction of background activity and new support for trigger the start of system services. Windows 7 also offers improvements in the Windows kernel that allows applications and services to scale efficiently across platforms. The performance of many functions and APIs are better in Windows 7, compared with Windows Vista. For example, driver performance on the servers is optimized for the new user mode and kernel-mode topology API. Rendering graphics are much smoother and faster. Availability is also much faster than before, "Microsoft explained.

According to the Redmond Company, the right technologies for the next iteration of Windows client have kicked up a hack. At the same time, there is only so much that Microsoft can do in the absence of support from software developers to create solutions designed to be used at the beginning of the operating system. The software giant revealed that ultimately the responsibility of ensuring that Windows 7 and the underlying hardware to achieve their respective energy potential lies with software developers. In this context, Microsoft pointed out that the developers had the necessary infrastructure and tools in the customer to play down as much as possible of the energy implications of their applications.

"Windows 7 significantly reduces the number of activities to the operating system performs to prevent the use of energy-saving modes. It also supports the trigger-start the system so that the processors will become disabled more often and stay longer idle, which reduces energy consumption. In addition, Windows 7 uses the latest energy-efficient hardware including network adapters, storage devices, and video cards, "the company added.

Among the improvements that come with Windows 7 is running-start capability. With a big impact on reducing the start times, trigger the start to ensure that services do not have to start up automatically when the computer will boot. In this regard Microsoft has made it possible for developers to start a service on a particular result. Windows 7 is optimized with a range of preconfigured services that are just waiting on developers to take advantage of them. This is done via Windows 7 Service Control Manager.

"Common trigger events for the services include: Device-class interface arrival: Start a service only when a particular type of device that is attached to or on the system, Domain join: Start a service only if it is connected to a Windows domain, group policy change: Starting a service automatically when the group policy is updated on the system, and the IP address of arrival: Start a service only when the system is connected to the network, "the company stated.

Micron 256GB SSD

Written by IT News on 6:23 PM

According to a video posted on Micron's new blog, the company succeeded in developing a solid-state device that could reach the fastest speed ever recorded by such a product. To be more specific, the video shows a SSD that reach data transfer at 800 MB / s at the same time also be able to expand seemingly about 1 GB / s. This speed is about twice the maximum performance peak seen to date.

As the video shows the system used for demonstration includes two eight-core Intel Xeon processors and two SSDs. Moreover, two units were not connected via a standard PATA or SATA interface, which means they were not limited to the bandwidth barrier of 300 MB / s SATA II. The devices use a PCIe interface, even with flash data management enhancements, which Micron States.

According to Micron's Joe Jeddeloh, during the demonstration, the two briefly managed to beat a host of data on about 800 MB / s and 150000 - 160000 random IOPS. Jeddeloh also showed a flash PCIe cards that combined the two cards in a flash unit with 16 channels. He said that this card could reach a bandwidth of 1 GB / s and "at least 200,000 IOPS." The faster companies SSDs available today from major manufacturers can hit around 250 MB / s and approximately 30,000 IOPS. In the case of hard drives, the fastest an observer as WD's Velociraptor, this clocks at about 100 MB / s.

The PCIe SSDs concept is not new, as Fusion IO has already unveiled similar products, the most notable of them turn on 100,000 IOPS a year ago. The company has recently launched a consumer version of its PCIe card, which is said to offer data from 500 to 700 MB / s and approximately 50,000 IOPS for around $ 1000. Micron said its vehicles would be available soon, but gave no reference to a possible price tag.

When you ask a frame at your local optics, you will be surprise when the optics tell you how much you should pay, the lowest price at the local optics may start $150 or more, but at Zenni Optical you can get modern and suitable for any kind of activities, either for traveling or work at the office, all are very cheap, specially if you choose for Holiday Frames. The price is start at $9.95, very interesting isn’t it?

We have all heard of medical Endoscope, the serpent-like devices that help doctors take a better look inside the human body, while keeping damage to a minimum. And certainly there are a lot of people out there who, at some point, wished they had such a product to take a closer look at some other inaccessible area.

For this reason, the people over at USB Fever has come up with USB Digital endoscope, a device versatile enough to make a thorough examination of even the darkest areas of a system .... computer system, that is.

At first glance, the device looks quite similar to its medical counterpart, with a 63 cm long stick, along with a 80 cm USB cable. At the end of the stick, you can find a small element that provides a magnification factor of about 40x, which is good for checking even the smallest parts of a computer. In the vicinity of the optical element we have LED lighting systems, which can be manually controlled by the user to adjust the intensity of the light.

The device works much like a regular webcam, to take pictures and video clips via a software program. Moreover, to ensure that the images are as clear as possible, the device also sports a manual focusing system.

USB Digital endoscope is guaranteed to work (no drivers required) with Windows 2000, XP and Vista. The manufacturer does point out that the periphery can also work in Linux, but since no thorough testing on this very issue has been carried out, you will get it at your own risk.

The device from the USB Fever is not just a very low cost one, sells for around 140 U.S. dollars. But it may actually have quite a high level of success depends mostly on the many areas where it may prove to be of use, from laboratories, quality control and industrial inspection to OverClockers, crime-scene investigators and, why not, even doctors.
