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 […]

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 […]
