    Posted on September 3rd, 2012 David Brooks | 317 comments

    On the IFA 2012 trade show, HP released its first Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrid, namely Sony Envy X2. Just like other electronic manufacturers who have released hybrid laptop-tablet, Envy X2 owns both laptop and tablet forms. When connected with keyboard during using, this new device is no difference from a laptop. While disconnected with keyboard, it is a portable tablet just like the new iPad. The overall configuration of this new hybrid tablet is very attractive, including: a 11.6-inch touch screen with 1366×768 pixels screen resolution makes it quite wonderful for watching HD videos/DVD on Sony Envy X2; adopts the next generation of Intel Clover Trail processor with 2GB RAM and 64GB SSD space; the latest Windows 8 operating system; dual camera with a main 8MP camera on the rear; Beats audio technique for high quality audio effect, etc.

    Sony Envy X2On appearance, HP Envy X2 comes in aluminum alloy shell, solid and smooth. The whole tablet body thickness is only 8.4mm and weights about 680g, while connected to keyboard the tablet would be a little heavier than 1400g. The 11.6-inch touch screen display supports multi-touch capacitive touch control, with front camera for video chatting on the right upper. While from the back side, there is a big hp logo, with an 8MP main camera and LED flashlight for picture and video shooting on the head part. The inconvenient thing might be that the separate design of power button and volume adjusting button which are separately designed on different sides.

    Sony Envy X2The bottom of the tablet has a data port to connect with keyboard. The bottom flanks are magnetic card slots to connect with keyboard, while the 3.5mm headset jack locates on the rightmost. The keyboard left flank respectively arranges a HDMI port, a USB3.0 port and a 3.5mm audio jack, while the right flank contains a USB3.0 port and an expandable port with a coverable SD card slot at the bottom. The keyboard of Envy X2 is quite similar to other Windows 8 laptop-tablet hybrid – standard full QWERTY design with touchpad. Such kind of design produces an overall terse feel for keyboard, though.

  • All things about Windows 8: Windows 8 Release Date, Editions, Features, Prices

    Posted on August 23rd, 2012 David Brooks | 194 comments

    Windows 8 logoAfter long time of waiting and experiencing various versions, we finally welcomed the official announcement of the release and shipment availability of Windows 8. As an operating system for use on personal computers, Windows 8 could be applied to home and business desktops, laptops, tablets, and home theater PCs. It is part of the Windows NT family of operating systems and succeeds Windows 7.

    According to the Windows Design Team, Windows 8 has been “reimagined from the chipset to the user experience,” whereas Windows 7 was intended to be a more focused, incremental upgrade to the Windows line. Windows 8 is reported to feature a new user interface based on Microsoft’s Metro design language, similar to that in Windows Phone. Also, Microsoft announced that the new OS would remove some old features of Windows OS line and add some new features. What indeed the Windows 8 would bring to the world then? Let’s just get a brief summary for Windows 8.

    Release date

    Windows 8 was first announced in January 2011 at Consumer Electronics Show. During its development and test phases, Microsoft released three pre-release versions: Developer Preview version (September 13, 2011), Consumer Preview version (February 29, 2012), and Release Preview version (May 31, 2012). On August 1, 2012, Windows 8 graduated from the development stage and was released to manufacturing. Windows 8 is slated for general availability on October 26, 2012.

    Editions

    Windows 8 is available in four major editions: Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Enterprise, and Windows RT. The first three have almost the same hardware requirements as that of Windows 7. The latter, however, runs on tablet computers with ARM architecture and has different hardware requirements. The other editions are not available in retail. The new Windows RT edition will only be available preinstalled by OEMs on ARM-based devices while the Enterprise edition will only be available through volume licensing. Hardware vendors willing to receive Microsoft’s certification for such devices need to adhere to a list of certification requirements.

    Features

    Metro
    Based on Microsoft’s Metro design language, Metro UI is by far the biggest change in Windows 8, and can be the most confusing to use at first—especially for desktop users. The Metro environment features a new tile-based Start screen similar to that of the Windows Phone operating system. Each tile represents an application, and can display relevant information such as the number of unread messages for an e-mail application or the current temperature on a weather application. These applications run in full-screen or in docked modes, and are able to share information between each other using “contracts”. They will be available only through Windows Store. Apps in the new interface are developed with the new Windows Runtime platform using various programming languages, including C++, Visual Basic, C#, and HTML with JavaScript code-behind.

    The traditional desktop environment for running desktop applications is accessed via a tile on the new Start screen. The Start button has been removed from the taskbar in favor of a Start button on the new charm bar, as well as a hotspot in the bottom-left corner. Both open the new Start screen, which replaces the Start menu.

    Windows 8 start screen

    Applications developed for this new environment were previously referred to as “Metro-style apps” in development materials, connecting it to Windows 8′s use of an interface following the Metro design language as its primary desktop. However, reports surfaced that due to potential trademark issues with the German company Metro AG, Microsoft officials had begun to advise its Windows developers to stop using the term. A Microsoft spokesperson however, denied these reports and stated that the use of the term “Metro” to describe these apps was merely a codename that would be phased out. Following these reports, Microsoft started using “Modern UI Style” to refer to its tile-based interface and design language.

    PowerShell 3.0

    PowerShell is Microsoft’s strategic task automation platform and a core component of the overall management framework for Windows. Version 3 has been in beta for some time but the final version is included with Windows 8 (and Windows Server 2012 which has also been released to manufacturing).

    Other features

    * Internet Explorer 10 is included as both desktop program and as a touch-optimized app. The latter does not support plugins or ActiveX components, but includes a version of Adobe Flash Player that is optimized for touch and low power usage and works only on sites included on a whitelist.

    * It is now possible to log into Windows using a Microsoft account (formerly known as a Windows Live ID). This will allow the user’s profile and settings to be synchronized over the Internet and accessible from other computers running Windows 8, as well as integration with SkyDrive.

    * Windows Store will be the only method of purchasing and downloading Metro-style apps, as well as advertising desktop apps. Metro-style apps are installed from the Windows Store, or in the form of a Line Of Business app on devices joined in a network domain.

    * Two new authentication methods have been added: picture password, which allows users to log in by drawing three gestures in different places on a picture, and PIN log in, which allows users to authenticate using a four digit pin.

    * File Explorer will include a ribbon toolbar, and have its file operation progress dialog updated to provide more detailed statistics, the ability to pause file transfers, and improvements in the ability to manage conflicts when copying files.

    * Hybrid Boot will use hibernation technology to allow faster startup times by saving the Windows core’s memory to the hard disk and reloading it upon boot.

    * Windows To Go will allow Windows 8 Enterprise to boot and run from a bootable USB device (such as a flash drive).

    * Two new recovery functions are included, Refresh and Reset. Refresh restores all Windows files to their original state while keeping settings, files, and apps, while reset takes the computer back to factory default condition.

    * USB 3.0 is now supported natively.

    * A new lock screen displays a clock and notifications while the computer is locked.

    * Task Manager has been redesigned.

    * Xbox Live integration (including Xbox Live Arcade, Xbox SmartGlass, Xbox Music, and Xbox Video).

    * Storage Spaces will allow users to combine different sized hard disks into virtual drives and specify mirroring, parity, or no redundancy on a folder-by-folder basis.

    * Family Safety is intended to allow parents to protect their children on the Internet, as well as monitor and control their PC and Internet activities and usage.

    * Windows Defender now has anti-virus capabilities, similar to those of Microsoft Security Essentials. It is intended to replace the Security Essentials package and function as the default anti-virus program.

    Windows 8

  • Preview of Windows Phone 8 features before Windows Phone Developers Conference

    Posted on June 20th, 2012 David Brooks | 15 comments

    Microsoft has just released its first tablet PC Surface days ago on the June 18th event. With the approaching of Windows Phone Developer’s Conference on Wednesday in San Francisco, what will Microsoft bring to us? Will we see the official release of Windows Phone 8? Well, even though Microsoft has been mute on the conference plan, it is for sure that the company will launch the Windows Phone 8 operating system. Riding a wave of momentum generated by the Surface tablet unveiled on Monday, Microsoft will be outlining plans for Windows Phone 8 on Wednesday as part of the company’s push to take on Apple and Google in the mobile market. Now, the concerns about Windows Phone 8 in fact should be what features of Windows Phone 8 will be introduced by Microsoft on the conference, but not whether it would be launched or not. The latest report from WPCentral’s Daniel Rubino has unveiled some exclusive information about Windows Phone 8 features, including consolidating Skype greatly, built-in Nokia maps, Windows Phone wallet, and more native codes for developers, etc. Check the following content to get the most possible features of Windows Phone 8 might include.

    Windows Phone 8

    Upgrade apps on Windows Phone 7: Not long before, some Microsoft stuff said all Windows Phone could be upgraded to Windows Phone 8 Apollo. But Microsoft cleared the rumors by claiming that the “upgrade” in fact means all apps on the existing Windows Phone 7 could be used on the new OS. It’s believed that Microsoft would give a satisfactory answer on whether other existing Windows Phones could be upgraded to Windows Phone 8 or not.

    Screen resolution: Screen resolution has been also a big concern on Windows Phone 8, as it could determine whether users could watch 720P video on Windows Phone 8 or enjoy 1080P videos on Windows Phone 8, just like the new iPad. The latest news from Daniel Rubino said that the new OS supports only 480×800, 768×1280 and 720×1280 screen resolutions.

    New UI: Will Windows Phone 8 user interface be the same as that of Windows Phone 7? Quite probably. Of course, there must be some differences.

    More native codes for developers: Just as leaked before, Daniel Rubino mentioned that the Windows Phone 8 would provide developers with more native codes, to enable developers develop more powerful and practical apps, and make it convenient for developers to transfer apps from iOS and Android to Windows Phones.

    Consolidate Skype and VOIP: It’s very possible that Microsoft would talk about how to deep consolidate Windows Phone 8 OS with Skype and third-party app VOIP.

    Combine Nokia maps: The cooperation between Microsoft and Nokia includes not only cell phones, but also background services. There’s great possibility of Windows Phone 8 OS combining Nokia Maps.

    Windows 8 core: One reason making Windows Phone 8 attractive is that it’s rumored it would adopt Windows NT core, which is the fundamental core of Windows 8.

    Apart from the above features, Daniel Rubino also predicted that Windows Phone 8 would add memory expansion function, NFC function and realize encoding on native BitLocker and security booting (business users), etc.

    All anticipations are really wonderful, but we still need to wait for the official release of Windows Phone 8. Wait and see what features Daniel Rubino got.

  • A wish list of changes for Windows 8 Release Preview on the early June release event

    Posted on April 28th, 2012 David Brooks | 78 comments

    Microsoft has released several versions of its latest Windows 8 operation system to prepare for the official operation system release, which is said to be in this October, like the Developer Preview and Customer Preview versions. Days ago, the company officially announced that the latest pre-release version of the Windows 8 operating system, Windows 8 Release Preview, will become available during the first week of June, a Microsoft executive said Tuesday in Tokyo. “Announce…Windows 8 Release Preview first week of June. Here’s the announce from Japan’s Windows 8 Dev Days #thankyou”, the company wrote on Twitter. The Windows 8 “Release Preview” will be the most complete version to date of Windows 8, said Steven Sinofsky, President of Windows and Windows Live Division. He spoke at Microsoft’s Windows Developer Days, an event to teach developers about Windows 8. No doubt, the Windows 8 Release Preview would be a feature-completed version of this OS, requiring only bug fixes before the final version out. Then, what are the features in Windows 8? Let’s take a look at what features would be included or changed in Windows 8 Release Preview.

    Windows 8 Release Preview

    Readopt Start button or any hint button like this
    There are a lot of people who have been used to Windows operation system with Start button. Many people would get lost and don’t know what to do and how to operate the computer if there is not a Start button or any sort of guidance on how to navigate the Windows 8 desktops. Watching the video of Chris Pirillo’s father trying to use Windows 8, the company might get to know how real people use Windows 8 without a Start button or anything like that. Thus, the company is supposed to readopt Start button to make operating more user friendly.

    Enhanced Multi-Monitor support
    A better built-in support for multi-monitor is anticipated in Windows 8 Release Preview version. The existing situation is that you can only choose one “main taskbar” to open the Start menu and then run metro-style apps. It would be quite easy for your mouse to jump to the next screen when hitting the corner of screen without a proper Start menu. This would make it inconvenient for operating.

    Keep Metro Contained
    For the most part, ignoring the Metro interface of Windows 8 is easy, especially if you think of the new Start menu as a full-screen version of the pop-up start button. The one glaring exception is when you want to open a photo, video or audio file on the desktop, and Windows 8 boots you back to its Metro-style media players. You can change the default programs for these files, but that’s a hassle.

    Adopt better Tablet App Switcher
    Windows 8 would allow Windows 8 tablet users to fast switch apps, but still too sloppy. When you drag a finger from the left side of the screen, one of your recent apps slides in, but you don’t have immediate control of which app to appear. To choose from a wider list of recent apps, you must slide your finger back to the left side of the screen, which opens up a sidebar with app thumbnails. The operation of switching tablet apps could be confusing most people. For better user experience, the company is supposed to adopt better tablet app switcher to do this.

    A Tutorial for Tablets included
    With physical Windows button and other icons on the screen, average Windows 8 tablets users will be able to get along with their tablets nicely. But many other useful features of Windows 8 operation system, like sharing, searching, app switching, etc. which are hidden from plain sight, may not that easy for users to operate. To make new users quickly understand and get familiar with the Windows 8 OS, Microsoft will need to get a wonderful user-guide for Windows 8 tablet users to make them full enjoy the interesting and practical features of Windows 8 OS.

  • Splashtop pushed out Win8 Metro Testbed to help you turn your iPad to a Windows 8 tablet

    Posted on April 16th, 2012 David Brooks | 46 comments

    The long anticipated Windows 8 is coming soon. Along with the new Windows operation system, people are longing for more wonderful Windows 8 tablets, which are expected to possess enough yet high performance features to beat the Apple new iPad. However, to get a Windows 8 tablet, you still need a long time to wait, as the Windows 8 OS is not even out in market. But now, you could have a “Windows 8 tablet” immediately if you’ve got an iPad. Being famous for its remote desktop apps for iOS and Android, the company named Splashtop just made a new $25 app for iPad users to get a taste of Windows 8 tablets. This new app, namely Win8 Metro Testbed, could simulate the Metro UI on Apple’s iPad tablets. Of course, you need to firstly download Windows 8 Consumer Preview and then run it on a PC, and probably a dual boot and install a small streamer file. With these done, install Win8 Metro Testbed on your iPad, and then the app will basically stream Windows 8 to your tablet via Wi-Fi at up to 60 frames per second.

    HTC Windows 8 TabletThe app uses the native touch gestures of Windows 8 tablets, such as swiping from the left to switch apps, swiping to the right to reveal the Charms (options) menu or pull from the top to close an app. Swiping left/right in Internet Explore will move between pages, and when you swipe slowly from the left, the “snapping” feature is enabled, which allows you to run two app side by side.

    Of course, as a simulating tool for Windows 8 tablet, there also exist a few shortcomings in this Splashtop’s Win8 Metro Testbed on the iPad, just like the unsupported camera. But that’s a very little shortcoming. The main drawback is that the desktop display adjusts itself to the native resolution of the iPad 2, 1024 by 768 pixels, the minimum for Metro apps. The resolution doesn’t support snapping apps side by side, unless you configure it as 1366 by 768 pixels, but which will result in black bars across the top and bottom of the screen.

    $25 is not a big deal, but enables you to take a taste ahead of the official release of Windows 8 tablets. Especially for Windows 8 app developers, Splashtop’s Win8 Metro Testbed will probably be more effective to developers who are working on Windows 8 apps and want to test them on a tablet, since they can’t buy an actual Windows 8 one yet.

  • Top 8 apps for your Windows 8 to better your digital entertainment

    Posted on March 6th, 2012 David Brooks | 39 comments

    The Windows 8 Beta, which was released by Microsoft on February 29th, brings several excellent and user-friendly new features including the Windows Store, more Metro apps, Internet Explorer 10 platform preview 5, the integration of SkyDrive cloud services and many smaller tweaks. Just like what Microsoft has claimed, there are more than 100,000 changes since the release of the Developer Preview late last year. The launch of the Windows 8 beta also means the launch of the Windows 8 App Store beta. Now, the Windows 8 Customer Preview version is available for customers to free download. From the Windows 8 App Store beta, users could get more software programs and apps for their Windows 8 devices. Here I would like to introduce some top apps for you, from games and news aggregators to video and music apps, some of which are quoted from the Windows 8 App Store beta, while some others are from other resources, based on better digital entertainment on Windows 8 devices, like Windows 8 phone:

    Wordament (Games)

    WordamentThink of Wordament as a slightly modified — yet equally addictive — game of Boggle. The interface is a grid of letters, and you race with other players in real time to form as many words as you can use adjacent letters. This is a beta version of Wordament running on a prerelease version of Windows.  In practice it has been very stable, but it’s possible you will run into some glitches.

    Slacker Radio (Entertainment)

    Slacker RadioSlacker Radio is an interactive Internet radio service available in the US and Canada. Listeners can access the service on the web, through mobile apps on multiple smartphones as well as on Slacker Personal Radio Players and other devices. It allows users to create and share customized music stations. Slacker allows users to customize one of their programmed stations (for instance, Top hits) or start with music similar to an artist or song, and then customize that.

    Vimeo (Entertainment)

    VimeoVimeo is a respectful community of creative people who are passionate about sharing the videos they make. You can freely upload, share and view videos.

    FREE online video downloader (Entertainment)

    Free Online Video DownloaderA Free online video downloader is an app which could help you to free download online videos from online video sharing sites, just like Vimeo, YouTube, Myspace, etc. With this you can freely download online videos and movies for unlimited playback even without network connectivity.

    Blu-ray ripping app (Entertainment)

    Blu-ray Ripping programA Blu-ray ripping program would help you easily watch Blu-ray movies on Windows 8 devices with the ability to rip and convert Blu-ray to video friendly to your Windows 8, meanwhile you can also rip Blu-ray to video for online video sharing, which absolutely betters your digital entertainment.

    Evernote (Lifestyle)

    EvernoteEvernote is a suite of software and services designed for notetaking and archiving. A “note” can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten “ink” note. Notes can also have file attachments. Notes can be sorted into folders, then tagged, annotated, edited, given comments, searched and exported as part of a notebook. Evernote supports a number of operating system platforms (including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Chrome OS, Android, iOS and WebOS), and also offers online synchronization and backup services.

    Elements Weather Forecast (Weather)

    Elements WetherElements puts Windows 8′s native weather app to shame. Its best feature is the live tile that’s pinned to your tablet’s homepage, which serves up the essential weather info you need to know at a glance — including the current conditions and three-day forecast. Elements also provides 7-day forecasts, 3-6 hour forecasts and interactive weather maps.

    USA Today (News)

    USA TodayUSA Today is a national American daily newspaper published by the Gannett Company. It was founded by Al Neuharth in 1982. The newspaper vies with The Wall Street Journal for the position of having the widest circulation of any newspaper in the United States, something it previously held since 2003. USA Today nicely matches Microsoft’s vision of the tablet experience.
