A couple of weeks ago I mentioned the Windows 7 Device Stage Silverlight demo, well now we have a great article to go with it by John Swenson one of writers:
“You don’t have to be a gadget geek to know that it can be hard to get a mobile phone, music player, or other device to work smoothly with your computer. How do you sync contacts and appointments to your mobile phone? How do you get music onto your portable music player? Where do you find the manual for your device, software updates, and help? The list can go on and on, depending on the device.
Enter Device Stage. This new feature in Windows 7 solves these problems by gathering everything you can do with your device into a single window, making tasks easier to find and complete.
Device Stage is like a home page for select compatible devices and printers. It’s a simpler and faster way of finding and using your devices with Windows”
