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 […]

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:

Just came across these latest projects at Microsoft Office Labs. These projects work with Microsoft Office 2007 and provide cool new functionality. I think these guys come out with some pretty cool stuff, and after trying the Chart Advisor, I’m highly impressed. The Email Prioritizer isn’t bad either for times when you just want to […]

I came across these images of Microsoft Home, on Paul Thurrott’s Supersite for Windows. While, I’m very much fascinated by the cool gadgetry and hi-tech integration of Internet and devices in that place, what caught my eye were these images. This is an image of the Media Center Prototype, which is in working condition, as […]

That’s right! Microsoft has released 3 new Windows Ultimate Extras quietly. Strangely, there hasn’t been any excitement over these new ones. Shouldn’t it be another celebration day for us Vista Ultimate owners? Well, maybe not. Anyhow, Microsoft Tinker ( yes, that’s the name of the game! ), is a puzzle game, where as sounds from […]

Most of us have read by now that Microsoft is going to replace some of the most essential applications in Windows by their Windows Live alternatives. I, for one, do not welcome this change at all. Can you imagine an operating system, which after install you can’t view your images with? Or one, in which there is no email application? Do we really want to rely on an operating system that is so barebones that it requires us to first download a 100 + Mb setup to achieve all these functionalities?
