Here is yet another one of those crap-gadgets that are good for nothing. The Sansui P72 is an oversized iPhone clone which is powered by a 1GHz Via C7-M CPU, and backed with 1GB of DDR2 ram and 32GB SSD. It features two USB ports (take that iPad !) along with one that doubles as eSATA, a 1.3 MP webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, and a 3 hours of battery life. The 7-inch resistive touchscreen with 800 x 480 isn’t something to write home about. Oh and this Apple clone runs Microsoft Windows XP, with an iPhone OS like interface layer to go on top of it.

We did a comprehensive review of Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 when it was released back in August 2008. Not surprisingly, there is no major change since Beta 2. I did some testing of RC1 bits installed on Windows Vista Ultimate (x86) and my own impressions are that IE8 is indeed generally faster than Beta 2.

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.

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?

Virtual Desktops are an integrated feature of OS X and Linux, but have always been an add on functionality in Windows. Windows XP had a powertoy for this, but for Vista there hadn’t been anything available till now, from the Microsoft Sysinternals team. Does it stand well against the competition? Read on for more!

A few days ago I wrote about the possibility of Microsoft making Windows Dancer available as Ultimate Extras for Windows Vista Ultimate users. After doing some research, I found out a way to have Windows Dancer and yes it works(not fully) under Windows Vista.
