Windows 7

Gizmodo showed and shared their first impressions on Windows 7 the other day. I have to say that it’s looking pretty sharp at first glance. Having said this I’m not really sure how we’re supposed to approach this, is this the final version of Vista, or is it really Windows 7? To me it looks like a tweaked version of Vista, but probably with a better backend engine.

Looking good Bill.

How to quickly resize pictures in Vista

I just learned that Microsoft PowerToys doesn’t work for Windows Vista. It’s an XP-only product it seems. However, there is another easy way to do resizing in Vista;

Simply select all images that you wish to resize, right-click and select send to – mail recipient, you’re then instantly prompted to choose what size you wish to resize them to. Once your mail pops upp it’s prefilled with all the pictures as attachments. Then simply copy (select all) them into a desired folder – Great.
