Oh Charlie Brown, where have you gone?

Living with Windows Phone

Paul Dawson writes about his experience of living with Windows Phone 7 for the past two weeks.

I didn’t think about how much stuff was going on in the background with the phone, but basically it’s grabbing data and uploading bits to the internet constantly. Great to have a phone that is always updated, bad if you are worried about data charges!

Thankfully in Singapore the data rates are capped.

Making of a song with Windows 7

Video from Microsoft about how a musician used Windows 7 during the process of creating and releasing a song.

 

I’d like to learn more about the photo editing and management tools. Haven’t played around with those yet.

Kinect versus Move

Which to buy: Xbox Kinect or Playstation Move?

I have the Kinect and haven’t gotten a chance to try out the Move.

Maps

I like this song.

 

It’s by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.  Lyrics

Save Youtube videos

Found an easy way to save Youtube videos in a variety of file formats.

A Youtube video will have a link such as:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDdI3ch4slE

To save that video to your drive, simply insert “link” in front of youtube in the address. So it would be:
http://www.linkyoutube.com/watch?v=PDdI3ch4slE

You have to allow the Java applet to run.

Happy video archiving!
