The new Windows Vista Sounds

Who said we never had a sense of humour…well, James on my team does Check out his exclusive recordings of the new Windows Vista sounds. Link to Views on Vista : Windows Vista Sounds


Microsoft: change the world or go home

A new poster from Hugh MacLeod – I like it a lot and plan to paste it around the building as liberally as I can and to see what Mr Ballmer thinks of it 🙂 Hugh gives a few explanations for which are: Microsoft telling its potential customers to change the world or go home….


Windows Media Player 11 out now

  It’s been in testing for a while and I can’t live without it now (on Vista) – though I expect I’ll be a Zune marketplace man in a little over 13 days 🙂 If you have XP, you should check out WMP11 though as there are some very cool features such as the search…


Vista PC design video

Video: Microsoft PC Design Competition Trailer Another cool video I found on Soapbox – this time for the PC design competition. Hope we run stuff like this when Vista launches. Cool, clean and free of buzzwords and overhype. Love it!


Apple keynote bloopers

Okay, I’ve seen a gazillion of these in Microsoft keynotes and demos so before you ding me,  I know we have way more than Apple does. This Soapbox video is a Sunday smile though as I’d always thought Steve J’s demos were letter perfect. I now know it happens to him too 🙂 I also found a link on…


How to speak like a BBC newsreader

Handy stuff from the Daily Mail to keep you on your toes with BBC English including phonetics for commonly mispronounced words. Smashin…oops, I meant maaah-vel-uz.  The most complained about is a MUCH better list with BBC’s suggestions. I assume they phone the Queen just to check these out of course? Harass – harr-uhss The letter…

Most answers are *much* more detailed than this one you will be pleased to know: Q: But inside Microsoft’s Core Operating System Division (COSD), it seems you already knew about building…


No blog weekend?

I’m off to Barcelona this weekend and am travelling technology light (well, relatively…) so I doubt there will be much blog action from me. However, simply pick up a copy of The Sunday Times and it’ll be very similar to reading my blog but without the rapier wit of course 🙂 Apologies to Hugh and…


The ultimate Vista demo DVD

  We’re going to be bringing the Demo Readiness Toolkit (DRT) to our UK Partners very soon. James and Matt are working on this and in the same way that Chris’s work is helping to accelerate the usage of Demo Showcase, and hence stack sales, we hope the DRT accelerates partner capability around Vista (and Office). What…


Vista and nVidia demo video

Pretty nice promo video from nVidia – the voice over is a little cheddary and it’s just a little too long but hey, PTS-TV ain’t perfect right? Oh no..hang on…it is…   Video: Windows Vista with Nvidia Geforce   Technorati tags: nVidia, Vista, PTSTV
