Ep. 166 – Lance Ulanoff of PCMag.com talks Win7!
TOPIC: Dave’s back in the saddle with us today as we have the priveledge of Lance Ulanoff, Editor-In-Chief for PCMag.com coming back on air with us! This time out, Lance gives us the skinny on Windows 7, what’s hot and what’s not about it and answers the burning question “should I dump XP and jump over Vista?”
Another great week of awesomeness comes your way as Jay “Geek Trivia” Garmon gives us what for and answers last week’s question.
This time around we don’t skimp on the cool sites of the week either! There’s still a bit of a MS theme, but some real gems you may not know about:
- Microsoft Technet: Server Quest II – Remember King’s Quest or Leisure Suit Larry? Well, this may not be quite as fun as those, but it’s pretty close, feels the same, is free, and focuses on your hapless tech support technician and how he learns to save the IT Department (and get the girl). By Microsoft, so naturally many of the answers to the puzzles start with ‘MS’…
- Microsoft’s Deploying Windows 7 Essential Guide – Pretty much exactly what it says, in PDF format you can load on your Kindle or simply view on-screen for some great tips!
- VistaSwitcher – No, it won’t help you switch from Vista to something else … but it does speed up the Vista Alt-Tab graphical wingding and make it much slicker! Since it’s free, if you’re stuck with Vista for a while longer you might want to check it out!
- Lake County Passage – If you live in Lake County, IL, where WRLR broadcasts out of, this will help you see the traffic before you get there! Even works on some of your smarter smart phones like the iPhone and Storm!
Got to tune it down with a little Iron and Wine and their single “Belated Promise Ring” – but I promise next week we’ll get a little more up-tempo!
