In Portsmouth District Court yesterday, Erik Westhovens, 40 and Mike Jansen, 40 with no known address, say they have brilliant technology and are from NeverNeverland. They pleaded guilty to a count of importing and explaining ground breaking technology and were sentenced to serve 17 days in the county jail. The balance of a 90-day jail sentence was suspended, pending their good behavior for one year.

“Do you understand what good behavior means?” the Judge asked Westhovens.

“Sell more SWV?” he responded.

After that, Erik asked the judge if he knew the difference between "for free and for nothing". Westhovens then told the...

As already had expected, the Windows 7 Release Candidate build (build 7100) has been leaked ahead of an official release by Microsoft.

I received confirmation early on Wednesday that build 7100 had been finalized and noticed early this morning that both the 32-bit and 64-bit flavors had been leaked to various P2P networks. Fake downloads had appeared yesterday but these were quickly removed. The latest downloads appear to be genuine

Finally Microsoft is changing one big disadvantage in Windows by default. Autorun will be disabled. No longer anoying screens that only can be disabled by clicking do this always.
Autorun on USB sticks will be disabled.

As some of our readers are well aware, Conficker and other malware is taking advantage of the AutoRun functionality as a spreading mechanism. Furthermore, over the last couple of months, there has been a significant increase of this threat, as more malware is abusing this functionality. Further information about this specific threat has been highlighted in the recent Security Intelligence Report (look for Win32/AutoRun) and the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) blog.

The release date of Windows 7 will be 23 of October 2009. This was told by the official spokesmen of Acer.

Acer has confirmed that Windows 7 will be available pre-loaded on their new all-in-one Z5600 PC from the 23 October 2009, not by the end of January 2010 as Microsoft has been previously suggesting.

Although some rumours have put the OS' release closer to the end of 2009, Microsoft has yet to officially confirm that the software will be launched sooner than the 3-years-after-Vista timescale.

Greetings All -

Sunday marked the opening day of HIMSS 2009 in Chicago. This show included a special milestone for the Endpoint Virtualization team, having the opportunity to demo from the Dell booth as part of Dell's new Mobile Clinical Computing solution, which was announced in a press release earlier this morning.

Brian Lynah wowed the audience showing the use case of clinical staff roaming across multiple Dell device types in mid-keystroke, instantly switching from station to station using an identity card. The demo showed SSO, application auto launch, and mid-keystroke roaming maintaining state across several thin clients, laptops and a PC. The back-end desktop can be any infrastructure model, from a virtual hosted desktop to terminal services based desktops...

My goal is to create a USB memory key to use in case of emergency. Recovery computer from virus, hard disk crash, Bsod, or other issue, where the only solution is a manual operation. Many times I had to find the right software utility to complete my USB Swiss Army Knife.

Prerequisite to create a complete software collection to use on USB memory key is the portability and possible the freeware license.

Somewhere on the internet, I found several utilities, for example I have described some of these in my previous posts on Juice.
