Windows 8: da Ottobre su PC e tablet

Windows 8: da Ottobre su PC e tablet

All'epoca dell'uscita di scena di XP, avvenuta dopo oltre cinque anni, i vertici di Microsoft affermarono come, da quel momento in avanti, il ciclo di vita dei loro sistemi operativi sarebbero stati più corti e contenuti in 30-36 mesi. Fedele alla consegna che si era data, la casa di Redmond pensionò Vista dopo 34 mesi di poco onorato servizio ed adesso sta pianificando, da un lato l'uscita di scena di Seven e dall'altro l'ingresso del nuovo Windows 8.Continua a leggere Windows 8: da...

Windows 8 Codec Pack Available

When you cannot play a media file on your system, it is usually because a codec that is missing to play that file on the operating system. You have got a few options to resolve the situation. You can switch the media player to one that is shipping with its own set of codecs that it uses to play back those media files.

Will Bitlocker’s Security Flaw Remain in Windows 8?

Will Bitlocker’s Security Flaw Remain in Windows 8?

I write a lot about security, and about Microsoft’s Bitlocker drive encryption technology.  Frankly I really like Bitlocker because it is easy to deploy and because its tied to a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip on a computer’s motherboard, it’s very secure.  It does have a flaw however and with Windows 8 now upon us this is beginning to concern me.  First of all let me explain what Bitlocker is in a bit more detail.  This system is a full-disc encryption technology. ...

What it’s like giving Windows 8 Talks

What it’s like giving Windows 8 Talks

As I write this I’m sitting in a hotel room in Bradford, West Yorkshire (UK) getting ready to give a talk tonight to a large IT user group about Windows 8.  This isn’t the first Windows 8 talk I’ve given, though it is the first since the Consumer Preview version of the OS was released.  About once a month I’m asked currently to travel somewhere in the UK and talk about Windows 8, the new UI, the new features and what it all actually means for them.In many ways...

Do You Love the Windows 8 Consumer Preview or Hate it?

Do You Love the Windows 8 Consumer Preview or Hate it?

Whatever Microsoft may be saying about how great the Windows 8 Consumer Preview is, there can be little doubt that it’s provoking some very strong reactions.  People are either loving or hating the new OS with very few people sitting somewhere in-between.  I thought then I’d share my own thoughts with you and ask the question to you directly.  Do you love or hate Windows 8, how do you feel about it?Personally those people who know me will know that until now I’ve been...

Google Developing A Chrome Metro Version For Windows 8

Google Developing A Chrome Metro Version For Windows 8

The two user interfaces that Windows 8 ships with make it more time and development intensive for developers to provide a working version of their software for both interfaces. Microsoft for instance makes available two versions of their Internet Explorer 10 browser when the operating system launches. First the classic Internet Explorer for the desktop that ships with all the bells and whistles included, and then the Metro UI Internet Explorer that is more bare-bones. This particular version...

[Appeal] Send me Your Windows 8 Troubleshooting Issues and Problems

As the author of the Microsoft Press book, Troubleshooting Windows 7 Inside Out you might expect with a new version of Windows now upon us I’d be thinking about the next edition of the book.  Well I couldn’t possibly comment on that but I do have an appeal to make.  Please can you send me all your Windows 8 issues and problems.  ;)  I was very lucky with the first Troubleshooting book as there was very little, if any at all, competition in the market.  This time around...

Microsoft Release Windows 8 Keyboard Shortcuts List

Microsoft Release Windows 8 Keyboard Shortcuts List

It’s long been known that Windows 8 would come with a great many more keyboard shortcuts than its predecessors.  These are necessary in no small part to help non-touchscreen users use and access features that would ordinarily be opened with a swipe or other gesture.  While some people may see the need for extra keyboard shortcuts to be a retrograde step in operating system development, nobody can deny that they’re certainly needed in Windows 8.Now Microsoft have released the...

Windows 8 Is Not Intuitive To Use, At Least For Now

Have you ever watched someone with little computing experience use a computer? If you ever worked tech support or are the go-to guy when tech issues come up, you probably know what I’m talking about. Their way of using a computer is often fundamentally different from ours.Most use a limited number of apps and techniques to get the things done that they need to do. Most ignore the keyboard when they do not have to enter text into an email, Word or Excel, and rely on the start menu...
