    Enable GodMode On Windows 7



    I thought this was a joke when I read it, but evidently not. If you want a quick way to get to all the settings on Windows 7, GodMode is it.  How?

    Add a new folder to your desktop and name it GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} - you will now see the icon above on your desktop and a pretty long list of items. Below is just a small sample.


    thanks to Less Than Dot and @jamiet

    Hence why I’m cutting down my intake these days Smile I am actually cutting down a lot on my afternoon & evening caffeine and woe does it make a difference to the quality of sleep I get. I know that’s obvious but I’m just a bit slow on this stuff

    A potted history of consumer electronics



    well CES is over so this is a bit last posting but I liked the graphic so much I couldn’t resist. Initially I was downbeat about the lack of Microsoft stuff on there but as I said in a post last week, our gig is software. Also, we’ve argubaly had more of a focus on enterprise software of late. Anyway….it’s an enjoyable infographic

    Microsoft Pictionaire – bringing the digital and physical worlds together


    Pictionaire is a collaboration between Andy Wilson and others at Microsoft Research with Björn Hartmann at the University of California, Berkeley. It’s a touchscreen table (4ft x 6ft) which is positioned beneath a ceiling-mounted camera and projector which can “see” and respond to objects placed on the table.

    In the example above you can see a user with a sketchpad who can transfer information off the paper on to the table as a digital object. You can also do the opposite to allow “tracing” of content from the digital space to the analog space. It also supports wireless keyboard.

    As with lots of these things, the video is way better than my explanation so click play. I think you may like it.

    [update] I just showed this to an architect I know and they were blown away saying that could revolutionise their industry. They then asked me “who makes it”. When I said “Microsoft” I got a pleasantly surprised look. “nice” was the answer :)
