A New OS for Next to Nothing

January 22, 2013

Who doesn’t like getting things for free or cheap? Since Windows 8 was unveiled last October, there was much hype about Microsoft’s latest version of their operating system, Windows 8, and a somewhat anemic initial response to it, even with the discount offer. Microsoft has offered similar discount deals in the past. Windows 7 is still available at its discount price of £69. This time, however, Windows 8 is cheaper – £25 – but the discount offer has an expiration date.

=IcaruS= on Windows 8

One of Leon’s PCs had the Vista 64 bit operating system on it; he decided to try the upgrade to Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. It was quite a painless process, only needing to re-install his programmes afterward. When upgrading from Windows 7, most programmes will not need to be re-installed. It’s interesting to note that Leon actually got a newer operating system for much less than the previous one.

Is it worth getting Windows 8? We’re not really fans of any operating system. Leon has only ever been happy with the Amiga OS, and even then it wasn’t perfect, but you can’t ignore the discount price at £25 ($40 USD). Consider also that you can get the Windows Media Centre for FREE, if you got the Windows 8 Pro.

Some have criticised the new Modern UI of Win 8, saying it’s not as easy to use. But you don’t just get into a car and drive it, do you? You have to learn how to use it so you can navigate and operate the controls properly. The simpler looking interface does not mean it was dumbed down. All the features are still there, just in a cleaner, better organised way. You only need to know how to find them. The learning curve in Win 8 is surprisingly short.

To take advantage of the available upgrade discount, you can start at one of these links:

Keep in mind that Microsoft’s offer is only good until the the price goes up to $199.99 USD on 1 February. Why wait and pay through the nose?

CES 2013: A Few New Faces

January 14, 2013

We took a few days to let the things surface that most impressed us from the exhibits at the recently-closed (and already announcing CES 2014) CES 2013 weeklong event, before putting our thoughts to pixels.

Who wasn’t there? Who was?
Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft – those names were notably absent from the International Consumer Electronics Show of 2013. The heaviest hitters, for one reason or another, passed on attending this year’s CES. Is that a harbinger of ill winds, or a glimmer of light for the rest of the market? Was there anything worth seeing?

Well. Samsung, Panasonic, Sony and Intel showed up in the main space, among a few others. Big dogs still ran in the streets, but there was room for the younger pups to join in. For some smaller producers, it was their first time at CES, an opportunity to break into the US market, seeking that one investor who could make all the difference. This year’s CES was actually a good event for them, because without the behemoths, the attention could turn to them.

It Bends! It Folds! It’s Youm!
We’ll share a few of the most interesting and promising entries here, starting with the Samsung flexible screen device with an odd name – Youm. Samsung’s prototype of a flexible display can almost be folded like a piece of paper, and smartphone sporting a curved OLED screen, are made from an ultra-thin, flexible and unbreakable plastic. The exhibited phone ran Windows 8. The screen also used OLED (organic light-emitting diode) which generates its own light rather than relying on backlit LCD screens. Just imagine what sorts of clever applications there could be for this technology.

For Dual Monitor Road Warriors
This very intriguing and very portable USB-powered monitor from HP is a great size for traveling, with its own built-in case. If you’ve craved a road-warrior-worthy second monitor to add to your laptop, this is light and thin enough to take on your next trip. It’s friendly to your pocketbook, too. The resolution of the monitor could be better; perhaps the next iteration will address that.

Oculus Rift Brings Us Closer to Virtual Reality
The Oculus Rift is a Kickstarter funded project; contributors will receive a developer version of this virtual reality headset in just a few weeks. The device has the hands of gamers across the globe itching, hearts beating faster, eyes eager to take in the experience of a completely encompassed field of vision, taking immersion to a new level. An added feature is support for the Unity game engine which rocks one’s world, as long as the computer to which the headset is connected can maintain a fairly steady 60 fps framerate. It will be fascinating to see which games eventually provide support for using the Rift in the coming year or so. There are a few glitches as with any new software/hardware, but gaming enthusiasts will enjoy the Oculus Rift, especially as its features continue to be improved.

2D Designs, 3D Models Print to 3D
Last but not necessarily least, while 3D printers have not quite arrived in the consumer market, the offerings from 3D Systems, FormLabs (another Kickstarter beneficiary) and Makerbot at CES last week gave some exciting glimpses into what’s coming in the next few years. A few things will happen before consumers start buying – prices will likely come down, the printers will become easier to work with for the average user, and said user won’t have to be a CAD designer or engineer to develop and create 3D objects. They’re not here yet, but they are definitely coming.

You can see other highlights of CES 2013 below, or at the Wall Street Journal site.
