Windows Laptop Scout is a great tool though. If you’re looking for a new shiny laptop, this is where you should start. It’ll show you 4 options which are

I came across this on ReadWriteWeb, and since I was planning on teaching my 11 year old brother how to program, this is a God sent!

While playing around with the Pre-Beta Windows 7 build, I came around another little gimmick in 7 which makes your windows stretch across the screen vertically. Move your mouse over the top corner of the title bar of a non-maximized window where it should become a resize arrow, and then double click it. Your window […]

Windows Live Hotmail Wave 3

By | November 4th, 2008

Our Hotmail accounts have finally been shifted over to Wave 3 now. We aren’t very fond of the very white look so far. Hopefully, it’ll become more meaningful, and less white over time. What are your opinions on the new Hotmail? Any problems that you are encountering ? Share with us!

A SyncToy for the Cloud

By | November 2nd, 2008

Codename “Anchorage”, a project of SQL Services Labs is an evolution of SyncToy, a powertoy for Windows used to sync files between different computers, being developed for Windows Azure. It uses the Microsoft Sync Framework to let you keep different types of content synced across not just different PCs but also services and devices. Some […]

I came across this video at Channel 9 of PDC 2008 Open Space discussion with Steven Sinofsky where he talked about Windows 7, UI, Media Center, boot time, Touch, Surface and lots more. According to him there’s still a lot of stuff left to do for RTM, which is a great thing as Windows 7 […]

Windows 7 has  been in the news the past few days. Mr. Sinofsky demoed Windows 7 running on a netbook as well ( and I must say I loved the Windows 7 presentation too! ). Well, Laptop Mag got hold of the pre-beta Windows 7 build and installed it on an Asus Eee PC 1000H. […]

Over the next couple of months we’ll be rolling out another infrastructure update to the […]

The $300 million “I’m a PC” marketing campaign continues as Microsoft sets camp in the front yard of its arrogant competitor. This picture taken from Birmingham, England shows ”I’m a PC” booth outside an Apple Store.

Unless you haven’t noticed, there are around 968 pictures, so far, of the on going PDC 2008 at its official website, Microsoft PDC

The latest ‘Get a Mac’ ads from Apple are really misleading and pathetic to say the least. The first ad, titled ‘Bean Counter’, makes fun of the $300 million “I’m a PC” marketing campaign, while the second ad, ‘V Word’, makes fun of Microsoft for not using the word ‘Vista’, but just ‘Windows’ in their […]

Google Chrome looks as good on XP as it does on Vista. I like the blue title bar that shows up for Chrome in XP. I had been wondering how to get that theme in Windows Vista as well. If you use the Vista Basic theme, you can use Chrome with the blue theme in […]

What’s in a name?

By | October 15th, 2008

Most of you must know by now, that Windows 7 is going to be called Windows 7 finally. We at Redmond Pie are happy with the name. Seriously, what’s wrong with it? It’s the next version after Vista SP 1, which is version 6.1. Makes sense to me.

Admit it or not, the UAC does tend to get on our nerves after some time. The rude blacking out to the prompt isn’t a pleasant view.

Microsoft Web is a fresh new, news aggregator by the company. It contains news from various popular sources (except Redmond Pie! ). I’ve instantly fallen in love with this site, as it provides almost all Tech news you want on Microsoft, and other popular companies. Suckers would be quick to blast this as a marketing […]

Before you read further, see the ‘People’ Tile in the Sidebar in the above picture. It shows an AIM contact as well. Although this sort of practical Sidebar Tile or Gadget didn’t make it into Vista, Microsoft still has patented it.This Patent awarded to Microsoft on 7th October is all about the functionality of this […]

In July, Microsoft and Facebook had made a search and advertisement deal, which meant that Live Search would be integrated into Facebook, along with advertisements. Well, the search has finally started to appear in Facebook now.

Not many people remember the problems Windows XP had before Service Pack 2. The Blaster and Sasser worms had almost ruined the security record of the OS. On top of that Internet Explorer 6 had security patches almost every week. What’s amazing is that, this is the same OS that people love now. They prefer XP over Vista! XP is hailed to have been the perfect OS. I can only imagine, how people would think like this about Vista too after some time.

You can’t get Windows Mobile from a store and install it on any cell phone you want. Same goes for the iPhone OS, Symbian, Palm, Android and others. And as we all know, Apple exists due to its eco system. This is the same eco system that inspired Microsoft to develop Zune with the Zune Marketplace and desktop software. Even the Xbox 360 is like iPods, iPhones and the Zune.

Around a week ago, our friends at LiveSide had posted about the beginning of the rollout of Hotmail wave 3. And as of now, most of us are still waiting. Word is, that the rollout has experienced some troubles as well as those who are got their Hotmail account updated are facing issues with seeing their folders. To which the Official Windows Live Hotmail blog responded:
