  1. Why does Microsoft launch extraneous processes in Windows when the computer starts?


    I regularly check my computer and I see that processes that I did not run are running in the shadow. These are the processes of tracking and collecting information about the user. I purchased this product from Microsoft. This is not free software. Reason for spying?

  2. Microsoft launches Surface Computing

    The launch of Microsoft Surface marks the beginning of a new technology category and a user-interface revolution. Surface, Microsoft’s first surface computer, provides effortless interaction with digital content through natural hand gestures, touch and physical objects. Surface computing breaks down traditional barriers between people and technology, changing the way people interact with all kinds of everyday information — from photos to maps to menus.

    Key features demonstrated in the videos included:
    • Multi-touch ability.
    • Recognition and syncing of wireless devices by placing on touch panel
    • Ability to identify non-digital devices, such as a drink glass, based on shape.
    • Hand gesture system to further interact with the touch panel.
    • New, non-windows based interface.
    The videos really speak for themselves. According to the website, Surface technology will be
    available in Winter 2007.
