Upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium Edition

With the number of Windows 7 users becomes more and more huge, many computer users may want to have a try on it. If you just a Vista user and you want to upgrade your machine to Windows 7, now I will show you how to upgrade it from Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium Edition by choosing an in-place upgrade (which is easier) but not a clean install.

Note: In this example, we are upgrading Vista Home Premium 32-bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit .
Before the Upgrade There are several things you need to do before you start the upgrade process. Firstly, you need to make sure you have connected to the Internet and run Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1 or higher. Actually...if you don't have at least SP1, you will get an error and have to go back and install it.

Upgrade Advisor

Also you'll need to run Windows 7 UpgradeAdvisor. Make sure all of the hardware that you normally run is connected to the computer before running (check everything). If your machine is already running Vista, chances are it's going to run Windows 7 without a problem.

Compatibility Center

To find out what hardware and software Windows 7 currently supports...go to Windows 7 Compatibility Center. You can easily search or browse for your hardware to see if it's Windows 7 compatible. If you have an older software version or hardware driver, they point you to the manufacturer's website so you can upgrade to the right version for Windows 7.

It allows you to browse or search for software that is officially supported.

Backup Data

Remember backup all of your most important files, folders, and other data. Maybe you have complete backups of your data already. But if not, here are some recommended backup solutions that we've previously covered.

Free Backup Utilities

-GFI Backup Home Edition

-Easeus Todo


Commercial Backup Utilities


-Paragon Drive Backup

-Second Copy


Make sure you are connected to the Internet so that updates can be downloaded and installed during the upgrade process.

Begin Upgrade

It's going to give you the following options when you pop in the Windows 7 disc. If you already ran Upgrade Advisor, just ignore "Check compatibility online" since all it will do it point you to Upgrade Advisor anyway.

After you click "Install now" button, you will see the following message.

Again make sure you're connected to the Internet before starting the process because during this step you'll want to get the latest updates for the installation.

Wait while the latest upgrades are found.

Check the box "I accept the license terms" to agree to the software license terms.

In the type of installation screen, select "Upgrade" (not Custom) since Custom would be used if you're doing a clean install.

Now the upgrade process begins.

There will be about three or four reboots while the process completes.

After each reboot, you should see different tasks on the list showing they have completed.

The last step will be Transferring Files, settings, and programs.

You will see the message that setup is checking video performance after the final reboot.

Then type in your upgrade product key.

Select if you want to turn on automatic updates.

Set up your time zone, time and date.

Select where your computer is located (in our example is on a Home Network).

It's done! Now the desktop will be configured and you can start using Windows 7 with all of your files and most settings intact.

Note: Not everything will be exactly how it was in Vista, so allow yourself time to go through and make the appropriate tweaks.

Actually there will be different with this two operating system (such as no Windows Mail, Messenger, Photo Galleryetc) so you can download Microsoft Live Essentials to get your favorite MS apps back.

Keep in midn run Windows Updateright away after the upgrade to make sure everything is current.

Note: If you're just using a version of Vista that allows an in-place upgrade, the process is relatively simple. The amount of time it takes will vary between systems. The system we used had an AMD Athlon dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM and it took about 45 minutes to complete the upgrade. Yours may take a lot longer though depending on the size of the hard drive and amount of data. The files and settings don't transfer over exactly how you had them before but it's just a matter of tweaking them a bit. But in a word...an in-place upgrade is a relatively simple and effective process.

Engineering Windows 7 for a Global Market

Microsoft has been a global software company for a long time and has always put a lot of effort into engineering our products for a global customer base. It is also an area where the engineering is complexprobably a lot more complex than many might thinkand one where we are always trying to learn and improve. Building global software is a responsibility for everyone on the team. We also have feature teams dedicated to developing both global and market specific featureswhether it is font handling or doing East Asian language input as two examples. We of course have a significant engineering effort that goes into localizing ("translating" is not quite accurate) Windows into nearly 100 languages.Julie Bennett represents the global development and localization teams and she and John McConnell on her team collaborated across the team to author this post that provides an overview of engineering for a global market.--Steven

Many of the readers of the e7 blog are located outside of the United States or speak a language other than English, so we thought it would be useful to share the international and multi-lingual improvements in Windows 7. Our goal for Windows 7 is to deliver exciting features that benefit users worldwide as well as features that make Windows feel local to every user. Like Windows 7's focus to improve the fundamental scenarios of performance and reliability, we improved our processes to allow us to deliver a great customer experience in every language and every country we serve, including delivery of Windows 7 as close to simultaneously as possible worldwide. This blog entry discusses some of the new features and improved processes that we believe make Windows 7 a great worldwide release.


The international features of Windows 7 are pervasive across the system, from such low-level aspects as the supported characters in NTFS file names (now upgraded to match Unicode 5.1) to such high-level aspects as the selection of backgrounds and themes (now including locally-relevant photos). But there are certain features which are intrinsically critical for proper support of the world's many languages and cultures, and we will describe some of those here.


Language and writing are at the heart of any culture and thus support for fonts is essential to supporting international users. Windows 7 significantly increases both the range and quality of fonts. We have added fifty new fonts:

As you might guess from the font names in the above table, many of the new fonts are for non-Latin scripts. In fact, Windows 7 will be the first version of Windows to ship with more fonts for non-Latin scripts than for Latin-based scripts. One major area of improvement is for the languages of India. To the nine (9) fonts for Indian languages that shipped in Vista, Windows 7 adds forty (40) more. Windows 7 will now include multiple fonts (often in multiple weights) for each of the official languages of India.

Aparajita: A New Devanagari Font in Regular, Bold, Italic and Bold-Italic

Besides new fonts, we have also improved many of the existing fonts. For example, we have added over two thousand (2,000) glyphs to Consolas, Calibri, Cambria Bold, and Cambria Math. But the most dramatic improvements have been to some of the non-Latin scripts. For example, Windows 7 does a much better job rendering the common Lam-Alef ligature in Arabic (see the illustration below) and in the placement of vowel marks.

Left: Lam-Alef Ligture in Vista Right: Lam-Alef Ligature in Windows 7

Changes to fonts (even clear improvements) are always tricky because of backwards compatibility issues. For example, if a character changes width or position, it may cause existing documents to reflow (repaginate), which is unacceptable. Therefore, whenever we change a font, we must run extensive verification tests against the changes to ensure the font metrics and other tables are unchanged. In the case of the Lam-Alef fix shown above, we discovered that there were existing applications that relied on the (undocumented) order of the glyphs within the old font. These applications would break if we simply replaced the glyphs. The font team worked closely with the international application compatibility team to ensure that changes we made did not affect the order of glyphs within the font, thus providing backward compatibility.

Font Control Panel

With so many new and expanded fonts for Windows 7, we also wanted to help users manage their fonts more easily. For the first time in years, we have done a complete overhaul of the font control panel.

The first picture below shows the font control panel with the large icon view. The most obvious change is that the font icons now convey much more information about the appearance of the font. The content of the icon gives a hint as to the glyph repertoire of the font. The style of the icon matches the style of the font. Non-Latin fonts show typical glyphs from the script for the font to see how it is designed. A more subtle change is that some font icons are faded to indicate fonts that are installed, but hidden. Hidden fonts will not show by default in the ribbon and font dialogs. Users can now use the font control panel to tune the fonts that they regularly use. By hiding fonts they never use, users can simplify choosing the correct font within applications. By default, only fonts supporting languages that can be written with the users installed input locales (keyboard layout plus language) will be shown. For example, users with English and French input locales will see only the Latin fonts, whereas users with the Japanese input method installed will see only the Japanese fonts. Users can override these defaults by right-clicking on any of the fonts in the control panel. Hidden fonts are still installed so an existing application that uses a hidden font will behave identically.

Font Control Panel with Large Icon View

The next picture below shows the font control panel with the detailed view. Now users can see much more information about the font. For example, the user can sort fonts by style, whether they are hidden, and information about the creator of the font. Font files generally contain information only in the design language of the font (e.g. a Japanese font might contain only information in Japanese). In Windows 7, we needed a solution that would work for all languages and for all fonts, so we created a hybrid approach that combines information from the font itself with metadata (an XML file that provides the information about the fonts on the system).

Font Control Panel with Detail View

Local Packs

Windows 7 has increased opportunities for personalization. New themes, backgrounds, and sounds make it easy to customize Windows 7 to match your personality. To the extent that our preferences are influenced by our language and location, Windows 7 reflects this with the introduction of Local Packs. Local Packs provide customized Windows 7 visual themes for a specific region. These visual themes contain locally relevant wallpaper images, custom aero glass colors, and regional sound schemes. Windows Internet Explorer Favorites and RSS feeds may also be updated when the Local Pack is activated on an end user's computer. For example, adding and enabling the Local Pack for France will add a market-customized theme for France to the end user's Personalization control panel and a number of links to useful French Public Sector websites and RSS Feeds to the user's profile.

Customized Themes in the Personalization control panel

The Local Pack content provides users with seamless local experiences right out of the box. Users are never exposed to Local Packs per se, they just select their Location as normal during Windows Welcome, and appropriate local content is exposed to them based on that setting.

Users looking for visual themes for other countries, or indeed any otherareas of interest, can find them on the Windows Online Gallery, which is accessible via the "Get more themes online" link in the Personalization control panel.

Other Features

Other new features include five (5) new locales (bringing the total number of locales supported to two hundred and ten (210)), twelve (12) new input locales, and improvements to sorting for traditional Chinese characters. Also, we have generally updated our system databases to the latest version of the Unicode Standard (5.1). There are also interface improvements that should allow developers to create better globalized applications. Extended Linguistic Services (ELS) is a cool new feature we describe below in the International Timeliness and Quality section.

Perhaps one of the most important improvements outside the core international features has been in Search, which now recognizes more languages. For example, Windows 7 desktop search now recognizes Russian morphology (the rules for single and plural, tenses, and case). This means that searches for a particular word in Russian will now match not only that exact word, but also the common variations of the word, yielding significantly better results.

International Timeliness and Quality

In previous versions of Windows, final delivery of every language to every market took several months. For Windows 7, we changed how we worked on international releases to significantly shorten this delta so that all users worldwide can enjoy Windows as simultaneously as possible. This goal had far reaching implications on how we perform our work as engineers and on how we interact with partners and customers during our public testing phases.

To understand our approach, we should first explain two important concepts: localization and globalization.

Localization is the process of adapting the user experience into another language. Beyond the translation of strings, it can also include activities such as resizing dialogs and mirroring icons for right-to-left languages, such as Hebrew and Arabic. Localization bugs, such as the mistranslation of a menu item, are defects introduced during this process.

Globalization, on the other hand, is the process of producing a product that works well in every country no matter the user interface language setting. A globalization bug may be as simple as showing a UI element in the wrong language and as complex as not properly handling right-to-left scripts. Globalization bugs are inherently more serious than localization bugs as they usually affect many or all languages and often require re-thinking the technical design. In past Windows releases, repairing globalization bugs contributed to the necessity of the long release deltas. For Windows 7 we worked to prevent, find, and fix globalization bugs as early in the development process as possible.

Pseudo - Localization

To prevent common globalization bugs, pseudo-localized builds were created. Pseudo-localization is a process that creates a localized product in an artificial language. That language is identical to English except that each character is written with a different character that visually resembles the English character. Except for being entirely machine generated, we create the pseudo-localized builds exactly the same way as we create the localized builds. Because even monolingual US software developers can read pseudo-localized text, it has proven to be an excellent way to find globalization problems early in the development cycle. In the Windows 7 beta, some UI elements were still in their pseudo-localized form, causing some interesting theories about what the meaning might be. We hope we have solved the mystery with this blog post. :-)

Control Panel Dialog in Pseudo-localized Windows 7

Pilot Languages

Beta is always an exciting time for us as it is our first real chance to hear from you about our efforts. We are thrilled that people from over one hundred and thirteen (113) countries downloaded the Windows 7 Beta. With such a large and diverse beta program, we must have highly scalable processes to gather and incorporate your feedback. In Windows 7, we are very excited about some new approaches we took here.

In the past, localization languages for Windows beta releases were selected for a mix of pragmatic reasons. While this ad hoc approach had benefits, too often we found that serious globalization defects were not reported because they did not manifest in the chosen languages. For the Windows 7 Beta, our priority was to find globalization bugs and therefore we have concentrated on four languages (plus English) that experience has shown are most likely to find specific types of defects:

-- German - Because it contains some very long words, German can reveal dialog size and alignment defects better than other languages.

-- Japanese - With tens of thousands of characters, multiple non-Latin scripts, alternative input method engines, and an especially complex orthography, Japanese is a great way to find defects that affect many East Asian languages.

-- Arabic - Written right-to-left and with contextual shaping (character shape depends on adjacent characters), including this language in the Beta helped us test code paths not exercised by German and Japanese.

-- Hindi - Windows 95 and Windows 98 never supported Hindi and support for this language relies entirely on Unicode. Testing Hindi helps find legacy (non-Unicode) defects that affect all such languages.

By concentrating on these four languages during Beta, we maximized our chances to find and fix the globalization bugs that affect many languages. This in turn gave us more time to improve the localization of all languages before we release the actual product. The pictures below show two bugs found during Beta that illustrate the advantages of focusing on these pilot languages.

Globalization Defects Found During Windows 7 Beta

In addition to our goal of finding globalization bugs via these languages, we also asked some of our OEM customers to provide feedback on the language aspects within their manufacturing processes. Since many of the OEMs are located in East Asia, we also localized Windows 7 Beta for Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Korean.

RC Language Packs

In part because of the engineering process improvements described above, we were able to deliver more language packs for Windows 7 RC than we have ever been able to do in the past for Windows. For those of you running the Ultimate version of Windows 7 RC, you will have noticed the following thirty-two (32) Language Packs available for download on Windows Update:

32 Windows 7 RC Language Packs on Windows Update

One thing we will do differently in the future is to ensure that all languages available at Beta are also available at RC (e.g. not including Hindi for Windows 7 RC). We will correct this for future versions.

Understanding Feedback from around the World

With Windows 7 beta localized into five languages and globally enabled for hundreds more, we received beta bugs from customers all over the world. We rely on these bug reports to help us improve Windows 7, so we devote much time to reading customer bug reports to determine product issues. Because bugs come from worldwide customers in many languages, we look for ways not only to understand their feedback, but also to address it as quickly as possible. The faster we can understand the issue, the better chance we have of addressing the feedback. As we receive bug reports in all the many languages that our customers speak, this has sometimes posed quite a challenge.

In the past, we have handled multilingual bug reports using manual processes, where individual bugs were examined and then manually translated one-by-one for appropriate follow-up by the feature team that owned the affected component. This is a time-consuming and error-prone exercise that scales poorly to a program as large and diverse as the Windows 7 beta. In the worst case, valuable international feedback has missed the window to affect the final product, and thus slipped to a Service Pack or subsequent release.

In Windows 7, by using the language detection API in the new Extended Linguistic Services (ELS), we have been able to automatically detect the language of customer bugs as they are reported. ELS functionality is new for Windows 7 and available to any developer who wants to leverage advanced linguistic functionality in the operating system. Beginning in Windows 7, developers may use ELS to provide language and script detection of any Unicode text, as well as transliteration to map text between writing systems. To use these Windows 7 services and all further services that we will add in subsequent releases, developers need only to learn one simple and unified interface. The ability to detect over one hundred (100) languages is available for all Windows 7 application developers, and we are happy to be able to apply this functionality to triage and handle beta feedback you send us from around the world. We use our own international developer functionality to improve our abilit y to respond to customer issues globally.

Once we have detected the language, we take the resulting text and use the machine translation support that is available online from Live Translator. This allows us to translate the text to English to get a sense of your feedback. Our engineers can then search our feedback database for specific features or areas of functionality. This also helps us in our efforts to ensure international application compatibility, as we can learn about potentially problematic international application experiences as soon as customers report them. Machine translation does not provide a perfect translation, but it does allow us to determine which issues might require further investigation. This in turn allows us to hear and respond to customer issues with a much faster turnaround time than we have had in previous releases, which means better quality in Windows 7 when we release it to the world.

By the end of Windows 7 Beta, we had used this process to translate 35,408 issues and comments submitted using the Feedback tool.

Putting It All Together

The end result of the work to improve globalization and localization quality is reflected in the announcement that all fully localized releases of Windows 7 will be available within two weeks of the initial release wave with all languages available in October. We hope (and believe!) end users will find the overall quality of these releases to be the best ever.

36 Windows 7 language releases available in October 2009

In addition to the 36 languages that will be released in October, there will be additional languages available for download as Language Interface Packs (LIPs) onto any Windows 7 edition as part of the Local Language Program (LLP). The LLP is a partnership with governments, universities, and language experts from around the world. (You can find more information on the LLP at http://www.microsoft.com/unlimitedpotential/programs/llp.mspx.) Work on a LIP starts at RTM and continues for many months based on the schedules of our partners. Two (2) LIPs will be available for download when Windows 7 is available in October Catalan and Hindi. Additional LIPs will become available for download over the following months based on the schedules of our partners. We are happy to have improved the delivery time of the first 38 languages (36 + 2 LIPs) and recognize that future releases are an opportunity to improve further. Creating a track record of dependable release schedules on our par t will help everyone around the world plan better for a more unified release timeline.

More information about Extended Linguistic Services (ELS) and other cool new features of Windows 7 are available on-line on MSDN. In particular, you can download the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and read about what is new in the International' section. Also, the new Go Global Developer Center on MSDN has a wealth of information about international technologies.

Windows 7 review on the Look and Feel in the new OS

Expectations, gossips and speculation have been running hot around the new OS, Windows 7, and based on experience with a retail version of the new OS, the reality seems to exceed the hype.

Microsoft could've put some racing stripes to Vista and gave the result Windows 7, but instead it shows wisely to develop a fresh version of Windows, bringing a bunch of new features to the spotlight.

Compared to Vista, Windows 7 also seems to be operating on the smell of an old rag. Microsoft includes the basic requirements for Windows 7 as a 32 or 64 bit 1 GHz processor, 1- 2GB of RAM, 16-20GB of disk space, and a DirectX 9 compatible graphics card.

To see that these specs to be more theoretical than practical, it was pleasant surprise at how well Windows 7 operate on a low-spec HP NetBook. Heavy duty gaming, multimedia and multi-tasking, allow for at least 4Gb RAM, a half decent graphics card, more hard disk space and a zippier CPU.

However when it comes to looks, Windows 7 is superficially similar to Vista, because of its Aero glass look. Windows 7 takes things one step further with theme packages to change its look and feel. Microsoft packs several theme packages, many of which will cycle through several desktop wallpapers.

On-screen gadgets are now no longer limited to a sidebar and can be placed anywhere on the desktop, making customizing Windows far more flexible.

Perhaps the biggest noticeable interface feature of Windows 7 is its fresh taskbar. Where app designers filled Vista with relentless intrusive pop up alerts, those have been relegated to the action centre so one can check them out at your leisure.

Releasing or simply seeing what apps are running is also easy due to large taskbar icons. Move your mouse pointer over an application icon and all its windows are previewed. Place your mouse over a preview window and a full-sized preview of the program will come into view with all other open desktop windows becoming transparent.

Jump lists are another jazzy feature. Right-click on any program icon attached to the taskbar and you'll see a pop up list of files recently used with that program. In Internet Explorer, it reveals recently visited we bsites, but it doesn't yet work in Firefox, so here's hoping Mozilla can get it resolved.

Microsoft also built in shortcuts that enable one to get the most of on limited screen real-estate. Pull a window to the top of the screen and it'll go full screen. For file copying, move one window to the far left edge on the desktop and the other to the far right - the both of them will automatically resize to exactly half the desktop.

Drag them away from the edge and it will return it to their original size. Minimizing screen clutter is as simple as taking hold of the title bar of the window you're working on with the pointer, shaking it and viewing all other open windows minimize. These may sound gimmicky, but in practice they do make a difference to day to day computing.

A user who has moved away from Vista with a bunch of ageing XP applications which won't run under Windows 7will be contended with some good news and bad news.

For the latter, they probably will not run directly under Windows 7, but for the good news Windows 7 has an XP Mode. This makes a virtual Windows XP session that will make it possible to run older and incompatible apps.

Using XP mode is as simple as installing the older application using the virtual XP option from the start menu and then operating it just like any other Windows 7 app.

Windows 8 Features to Watch Out For

Still a year or more from the final release of Windows 8 - Microsoft's upcoming version of WindowsOperating System. But its Beta releases this year, leaked screenshots and rumored features already give us a fair idea of what to expect in it.

We shall now category-wise proceed with discussing the awaited potential features of Windows 8 that might show up in it.

Storage Features

While mostWindowsusers are accustomed to relying on third-party tools for handling disc images and drive maintenance tasks,Microsofthas been working on a new file system for years.

ISO Mounting:

While Windows has lagged behind other operating systems, when it comes to the ability to handle disc images. As recently as Windows Vista, users needed third-party tools to burn an image to a disc. And while Windows 7 can now write a disc image, it can't mount and read one. However, this feature will finally come in Windows 8.

Tweaked Disk Cleanup:

According to Windows 8's pre-release builds, the Disk Cleanup utility has been enhanced with options that let you sort files by size and type. This should make it much easier to reclaim disk space quickly by targeting temporary files and spotting the biggest space hogs on your hard drive.

Portable Workspaces:

Based on screenshots and videos leaked from an April build of Windows 8, it appears that Microsoft looks to be integrating a new feature called Portable Workspaces into Windows 8, which will let you create a portable image of your system (comprising of a streamlined clone of your desktop, user settings and essential apps) on any USB drive with at least 16 GB of available space.

History Vault:

While Windows XP Service Pack 2 introduced a useful file-versioning feature called Shadow Copy, relatively few end users ever realized this feature existed. Even now, in Windows 7, it remains obscure and mostly inaccessible to ordinary users. Windows 8's History Vault feature (timed, incremental backups of changed files) appears poised to bring Shadow Copy into the light of day, whose early screenshots look eerily similar to Apple's Time Machine feature in OS X.


Since 2003, Microsoft has been working on a new Windows file system capable of detecting and using relationships between various chunks of data on a PC. WinFS (where "FS" stands for Future Storage) incorporates features of SQL relational database servers to intelligently find connections between files and surface them to applications. A common example of this would be a version of Windows Explorer capable of automatically discovering photos of a specific person and displaying them in chronological order.

WinFS was expected to launch as part of Windows Vista in 2006, but never made the final cut due to technical difficulties. Microsoft has made no announcements about the file system's chances of appearing in Windows 8, and we've yet to see credible evidence that it's coming.

Connection Features

Windows 8 seems to be deeplynet-connected, with a barrel of new features aimed at making the web browsing experience more central, syncing user data to the cloud.

Internet Explorer 10:

Despite the fact that Internet Explorer comes preinstalled on every Windows PC, Microsoft's share of thebrowsermarket continues to decline. But development of IE 10 continues at what looks to be a pretty brisk pace, with a bunch of tablet-friendly features.

The most interesting browser enhancements we've run across for Windows 8 is a feature Microsoft calls Immersive Browser. Apparently based on the mobile browser in Windows Phone 7, Immersive Browser will presumably use the IE rendering engine within a simplified full-screen interface that will make the most of tablet displays. To get more web onto the screen, Microsoft reduced the number of menu options to Forward, Back, Address, Reload, and Favorite.

Some leaked screens also reveal a tiled interface similar to the Metro UI in Windows Phone 7, which would display web links as tiles across the immersive browser screen for quick navigation. This feature looks like it would be more useful in a tablet than on a PC, but it may work for both.

SmartScreen Download Filter:

Internet Explorer 9 includes a reputation-based phishing filter called SmartScreen, which checks files, links, and sites against a reputation database before before allowing them to launch or loading them in the browser. These options have been spotted under the View tab in the Folder menu as user-selectable features.

Cloud Storage:

Leaked screenshots from Windows 8 alpha builds show thatcloudis now an integral part of the operating system. Apparently users will be able to link their Live Mesh/SkyDrive account to Windows 8.

Push Notifications:

Digging through DLL files in the alpha build, uncovers signs of push-notification support in Windows 8, such as triggering a noise or flash a light when a newemailcomes in, or announce a request for video chat and more.

User Account Features

So far, we've spotted few changes to the way Windows 8 will manage user accounts, but two interesting features have popped up on the rumor forums.

Facial Recognition:

Though there's nothing especially new about the idea of facial recognition, leaked news of a Windows 8 API called "Detect human presence," which likely integrates face recognition into the OS, where in users will be able to login to their password-protected Windows Account without having to type in the password every time for access.

System Reset:

Leaked screens show the presence of a feature called "System Reset" that allows a user to revert back to factory settings. The menu description for the feature reads, "Remove all programs you've installed and restore default Windows settings. You can choose to keep user accounts and personal files." For those who like to occasionally reinstall windows as a way of reducing bloat, this could be a real boon.

Interface Tweaks

So far, the screenshots we've seen of Windows 8 don't appear substantially different from those of Windows 7. But here are two tweaks worth talking about.

Ribbons Everywhere:

One of the most noticeable interface tweaks in Windows 8 pre-release builds is the proliferation of ribbon menus throughout Windows Explorer. Already present in included apps such as Paint and Word Pad, the ribbon interface adds a host of new buttons to the Windows Explorer menu, allowing to execute classic menu options within one-click accessibility.

Aero Autocolor:

This simple menu option in the Window Color and Appearance control panel empowers Windows to automatically change the desktop color scheme to match the dominant color in your wallpaper.

Content Integration

Windows App Store:

The most prevalent content-related rumor in the Windows 8 universe is that Microsoft is working on Windows app store.

PDF Support:

Finally Microsoft seems to be building PDF support directly into Windows with an app called Modern Reader, which will read a whole lot more than just PDFs.

Tablet Optimized

To capitalize on the current touch tablet craze, Microsoft is making a few moves to optimize Windows 8 for the slate, including touch-friendly improvements throughout the operating system, many of which appear to have been adapted directly from WindowsPhone7.

System On Chip Support:

Diminutive System On Chip (SOC) architecture will play a massive role in the company's future, which is why Microsoft will release multiple versions of Windows 8 for both x86 and ARM, including four distinct builds for the latter, meaning Windows 8 will be designed to run on low-power chips from ARM, Qualcomm, AMD, Intel, and Texas Instruments.

Pattern Login:

One of the many touch interface enhancements, includes the option of a pattern login screen consisting of a 16-block grid, which would allow for complexsecuritypatterns.

Other Tweaks

There are a few more forthcoming features that we do have some good information about.

New Windows Task Manager:

Though, there's little in the way of new functionality here, but the merged control panels will make quicker work out of spotting resource hogs and shutting them down with one click through a single control panel redubbed Modern Windows Task Manager.

Hybrid Boot:

To speed up boot times, Microsoft seems to have worked up a new method of shutting down and starting up known as Hybrid Boot, which works more like hibernation than actual shutdown, leaving lots of data cached for ready retrieval when the system resumes. Leaked screens also show an option to revert the system to conventional shutdown mode for users who'd rather like to conserve power.

What iPad developers should know about iPad 1 versus iPad 2

More than 15 million iPads were sold last year, but has the iPad2 been equally well received? Not so much, according to sources. It may be thinner, lighter and faster than the iPad 1, but iPad developers find the iPad 2 nothing to shout about, while most regular users still feel that it lacks important features.

Appearance This is perhaps where the main difference lies. The iPad 2 is almost 33% lighter and thinner than its predecessor. It also has cameras on the front and back, unlike the iPad 1 which doesn't have cameras at all. This opens up opportunities for iPad developers to think about photography and conference related apps and features.

Speed With the new dual-core processor that is faster, and its upgraded graphics, the iPad 2 is supposed to be improved speed wise, making graphics almost nine times faster the iPad 1. It also makes app loading time shorter.

Upgrading Ipad 2 also comes with new hardware, which will be more compatible with apps to come. These apps may not work on the older version. For example, the iPad 2 has updated its cell radio, and radio apps for the previous EDGE plus triband HSPA may not work with the new EDGE plus quadband. Perhaps, this is a great time for iPad developers to think about creating apps that work on both versions of the iPad.

Cost Since the arrival of the iPad 2, Apple has reduced the price of the iPad 1 by $100, which is perhaps why so many iPad developers and potential buyers are having mixed ideas of which to purchase and which to design for. iPad consultants advice that if all one needs is a basic tablet, then the iPad 1 will work brilliantly, but for those who are looking to keep this device for awhile, then perhaps its best investing in the newer version which will be more adaptable for future apps.

As a budding iPad developer, this issue of old versus new might complicate your ideas to create apps, but don't let this demotivate you. Just get some help from a good professional iPad development company, such as Jinibot Mobile Development and you could be well on your way to designing brilliant apps.

Internet Marketing Courses - iMMACC Training Review

When talking about internet marketing courses, a lot of people think in terms of standardized college courses, with professors and classrooms. However, today's marketing courses usually come via the internet because the online learning process is less expensive and far quicker to access. In fact, unlike classroom textbooks, the internet courses can update and add information instantly as changes to the industry occur.

One of those internet courses that has become very popular is the iMMACC TRAINING program. This is a system of learning online marketing through several methods. First, each member who joins has access to nearly 200 hours of video tutorials and webinars on a vast array of internet marketing subject. This library of prerecorded material is comprehensive and includes ongoing updates on changes to the industry.

Also with the iMMACC TRAINING program comes a built in income earning opportunity. Each member who joins is eligible to recruit oth er new members, and each new prospect brought in earns the member $1000. So for instance, someone who joins iMMACC TRAINING as a member, and then signs up 10 new members, will earn $10,000. This is only an example of the earning power of this compensation plan, but the reality is with 1.8 Billion consumers on the web, there really is no limits on earning money on the net.

In addition to the learning and earning, there is a networking opportunity that exists in iMMACC which allows one to network with fellow internet marketing experts and communicate with other networkers around the world. This kind of sharing and communicating is invaluable in continuing the learning process and staying current on all facets of online marketing. iMMACC is a legitimate source of learning for anyone who is searching for internet marketing courses and want to gain a full understanding on Marketing Online.

This is only a review and anyone who initiates an interest in Network Marketing, Online Marketing, or Internet Marketing should observe due diligence and do solid research before committing to expenses. After performing due diligence also ask for references from other students who have had success in learning the courses you have interest in studying. There are many marketing courses found on online worldwide, but iMMACC TRAINING is one source which has received credibility.

Top Essential Iphone Accessories for Apple Iphone Owners

Buying your first iPhone is a long process, longer than you could have initially expected. It does not only involve the actual purchase of the iPhone, you have to acquire various iPhone accessories, to be able to become the really trendy owner of your new gadget, and in some cases, to protect it, or to maximize its capabilities. Iphone accessories are simply things from which you will always seek more of.

Here are some of the basic ones...

iPhone Cases

Have you ever wondered why you are actually purchased your third iPhone case in half a year? Even these iphone cases, the simplest iPhone accessories are always becoming better, until you see something new. You can have reddened and hard cases, leather cases, metal cases, red, yellow, pink and black cases, cases that actually protect your iPhone and the ones that just look good on it or that go with your new dress. Well, it is just natural that Apple as a leading force and its partners, should substance a wide variety of iPhone accessories, and it is just natural that you will eventually own more of these cases, to meet the occasion or your mood, or just to protect you iPhone from nearby children.
iPhone Headset and Travel Charger

Your next purchase after an iphone case should perhaps be an iPhone Bluetooth Headset, to be able to answer your calls wirelessly, easily and elegantly and you will also need to get a travel/car charger, to be able to charge your phone when you are on the move. When you get bored with these basic iPhone accessories, having purchased earphones and perhaps some speakers as well, you might be interested in what they have on substance outside the realm of customary accessories for iPhones.

Well, as could be expected, the list is literally endless. You can purchase for example mini screen wipers for your iPhone, to clear the smudges on your screen. Or to prevent even these smudges, you can acquire a arrange of phone fingers in different sizes, that you can just fit on your fingers patch using the touch screen and it will stay totally clear. You might also want to try the iPhone travel pillow, with built in speakers, this way, you will have a pillow for your flight, and your ears won't be hurting from the earphones.

Any iPhone accessory could basically come handy once, though it's quite manifest that a unify of mini screen wipers for your screen is slightly less essential than a decent case, so try to grab this latter first. However, purchasing an iPhone will generally just introduce you to the magical world of iPhone accessories.

Have fun with your iPhone, for this is only the beginning.

Apple has a lot more in store for its knight in shinning armor, and am sure they have some pretty cool new iphone accessories in the works for you hard core iphone users.

It still amazes me to this day how they can pack so much into something so little.

Create, Design & Launch Your Iphone Application

The Apple iPhone is an amazing device that invites creativity. You've probably said to yourself: 'I wish I could do that on my iPhone.'

With the iPhone Software Development Kit (SDK), programmers can make your ideas reality - even if you yourself don't know the difference between a C-pointer and a SQLite database.

More than 200 iPhone application projects have already been posted on Elance.com. Check out thesetips in this articleto get your project kick-started.

We focus on the development of applications for the Apple iPhone, and we asked Nick Dalton, iPhone SDK specialist, to give Elance buyers a few tips on how to scope and post an iPhone Application project. Heres what he had to say:

The iPhone is an amazing device that invites creativity. If youre an iPhone owner Im sure youve said to yourself: I wish I could do that on my iPhone, or I have a great idea for an iPhone application.

With the iPhone Software Devel opment Kit (SDK), programmers can make your ideas reality even if you yourself dont know the difference between a C-pointer and a SQLite database. But before you go ahead and post your application idea to the buzzing iPhone project area on www.Elance,com. here are some pointers to get your project kick-started:

Study the Masters
Apple has already spent a lot of time thinking about how to present information and build interactive applications on the iPhone. The applications that come with the iPhone are the results of this research. Study them in great detail and try to apply as many of the user interface metaphors as possible to your application.

Not only will Apple be flattered if you imitate the user interface in their applications, but they actually mandate it to a great level of detail as described in their Human Interface Guidelines.

Dream in Color Screens
Most applications for the iPhone will be very visual. Therefore it makes sense to provide your requirements as screen images or sketches. You dont have to be a graphics artist to do this effectively. An iPhone programmer is looking for the following information:

- The type of layout each screen should have

- The buttons on the screens

- The actions associated with each button

The exact shape and format of your screen sketches is secondary. As long as they are readable, its a great way to communicate your application design to a programmer.

Be Realistic About Your Budget
Look at other iPhone projects posted on Elance to get a sense for the bid amounts on these projects. Read the descriptions of these projects to see if they seem to be larger or smaller projects than what you have in mind. If you set your budget to under $500 for something that is realistically going to take a programmer two months to implement, you are not likely to attract many bidders.

From a programming perspective, some things are easy to do on the iPhone, while other seemingly simple things are very time consuming. For example the beautiful cover-flow animation used in the music application on the iPhone should be simple to use in other applications. Unfortunately you cant. If you want this animation within your application it will have to be written from scratch, probably costing a one month of work.

If you talk to an approved iPhone developer early in your application design proces s you can learn how to get most out of your budget by avoiding the things that are really difficult to do on the iPhone.

Dont Be Too Original
iPhone users already know how to do certain tasks on their phones by convention. For example, if you tap an item in a list that has a > icon next to it, you expect to be taken to another screen with more information about that item. If your application needs similar functionality, dont be creative and come up with a new way to solve the same problem. Use the conventions already established by Apple.

New conventions are difficult to establish especially with the touch interface because there is no way to discover how your application works on the iPhone. Unlike a website where you can hover with the mouse pointer over areas that look like you can interact with them and a tool tip or the status bar will reveal some clues to you.

Know Your Limitations
The curr ent version of the iPhone SDK, which is used to write applications for the iPhone, has many restrictions and limitations. Some of them are common sense, e.g. you cant send text messages from an application. Imagine an application that sends out thousands of text messages without your knowledge, who is going to pay the phone bill for that?

Other restrictions are maddening: applications cannot access the log of phone calls, or interact in any way with the calendar or the music stored on the iPhone.

To Apples credit, the iPhone SDK is an amazing piece of software especially given that it was publicly released as a Beta just three months ago. Some of the shortcomings listed above will likely be addressed in future releases of the SDK.

As a buyer with an idea for an iPhone application, you should educate yourself about these limitations before you spend too much time designing an application that is impossible to implement. Talk to a developer or company that specializes in iPhone development (and there are many available on Elance) and they can help you get on the right track from the start.

Nick Dalton (username: 360mind) is an experienced iPhone SDK specialist and Elance.com service provider. He has 15+ years of background in programming, and currently focuses his business, 360mind, 100% on the development of iPhone applications.

3G iPhone Features Upto Date

With just over a year after Apple birthed the first iphone, the long-awaited, next-generation iPhone 3G has arrived bearing a mildly tweaked design and a load of new features. With access to a faster 3G wireless network, Microsoft Exchange server e-mail, and support for a staggering array of third-party software from the iPhone App Store, the new handset is the iPhone we've been waiting for. It still lacks some basic features but when compared with what the original model was year ago, this device sets a new benchmark for the cell phone world.

The 3G technology gives iPhone fast access to the Internet and email over cellular networks around the world. iPhone 3G also makes it possible to do more in more places: Surf the web, download email, get directions, and watch video even while you are on a call. With fast 3G wireless technology, GPS mapping, support for enterprise features like Microsoft Exchange, and the new App Store, iPhone 3G puts even more features at your fingertips. Plus we all know that iPhone combines three products in one - a revolutionary phone, a widescreen iPod, and a breakthrough Internet device with rich HTML email and a desktop-class web browser.

The 3G iPhone Home Screen has instant access to whatever you need. The Home screen takes you to iPhone applications and Web Clips with a single tap - even when you are on a call. And no two Home screens are alike. That is because you can customize yours with whatever applications and Web Clips you choose. Plus, you can customize you Home Screen, Add Web Clips and no matter where you are on iPhone, one click of the Home button takes you to the Home screen. And you can go back to what you were doing at any time.
Phone Calls - with 3G iPhone, making a call is as simple as tapping a name or number. All your contacts appear in a list you scroll through with a flick of your finger. And Visual Voicemail plays your messages in any order you want, just like email.

Email - on 3G iPhone looks and works just like email on your computer. With support for popular email servers and providers - including MobileMe, Microsoft Exchange, Yahoo! Mail, Google Gmail, and AOL - and most industry-standard IMAP or POP mail systems, iPhone puts email in your pocket.

Internet - 3G iPhone features Safari - the most advanced web browser ever on a portable device. And with 3G and Wi-Fi, you can browse the real Internet really fast. iPhone also syncs your bookmarks from your PC or Mac and has Google and Yahoo! search built in.

iPod - With its beautiful 3.5-inch widescreen display and Multi-Touch controls, iPhone is also one amazing iPod. Browse your music in Cover Flow and watch widescreen video with the touch of a finger.

SMS - With a chat-style view and an intelligent Multi-Touch keyboard that predicts and suggests words as you type, iPhone texts smarter than any smartphone.

Maps with GPS - Find your location, get directions, and see traffic all from your phone. Maps on iPhone 3G combines GPS, Wi-Fi, and cell tower location technology with the Multi-Touch interface to create the best mobile map application ever.

iTunes on 3G iPhone - Buy music over the air from the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store on iPhone. Find a Wi-Fi hot spot and tap the iTunes button. Then take your pick from more than 6 million songs.

App Store - The App Store is coming soon. And when it is here, you will find applications in every category, from games to business, education to entertainment, finance to health and fitness, productivity to social networking. These applications have been designed to take advantage of iPhone technologies such as Multi-Touch, the accelerometer, wireless, and GPS. And some are even free. You will download them wirelessly and be able to use them right away.

Calender - iPhone makes it easy to make plans. The built-in Calendar goes with you anywhere, works with a tap, and syncs seamlessly to the calendar on your computer.

YouTube - iPhone keeps you entertained with a YouTube application that opens right from the Home screen, so you can watch YouTube wherever you are. Videos load fast over 3G or Wi-Fi. Find a video you like? Bookmark it or share it with a friend.

Camera - With a built-in camera and an advanced photo application, iPhone is the most photo-friendly phone ever. It takes snapshots, automatically syncs photos with your PC or Mac, displays albums with the flick of a finger, and posts pictures directly to a MobileMe Gallery.

Stocks, Weather and Notes - Get stock quotes and weather reports with a tap. Use Notes to jot down information you want to keep with you, remember for later, or share via email.

And last but not the least a calculator on 3G iPhone combines the simplicity of a pocket calculator with the power of a full-featured scientific calculator.

Overall, though, a lot is improved and a price cut that significant really is incredible.

What Accessories to Buy for Your Apple Iphone 3g?

The Necessities
Apple's iPhone 3G Obviously youre buying the phone. Not much to decide here, except how much storage you want and whether you want to a white or black one. Always buy as much storage as you can afford, since the phone will last you longer and will hold more music, data, and programs like games.

iPhone 3G Case After spending hundreds of dollars on your new phone, you dont want to risk scratching it, or damaging it more seriously, by not protecting it. Get a case to prevent scratches to the phone and absorb shocks from jostling and drops. More Cases:

* iPhone 3G Crystal Cases
* iPhone 3G Back Cover Cases
* iPhone 3G Leather Cases
* iPhone 3G Silicon Cases
* iPhone 3G Socks

iPhone 3G Screen protector The iPhone has been touted since before the release of the original model as having a strongly scratch-resistant screen. Unfortunately, thats been proven not to be the case. The screen of the iPhone 3G also picks up smudges from the oil on fingers and faces very easily, making the screen constantly look kind of dirty. Protect the iPhone 3Gs very appealing screen with a thin, plastic overlay screen protector.
You dont absolutely need these things when buying an iPhone 3G, but you may enjoy your phone more with them.

iPhone 3G Charger The iPhone 3G comes with a Sync data cable and an USB wall charger adapter for recharging the battery. In most cases, you could need a car charger or a 3-in-1 Car & Wall Charger with Data Cable Kit while on the road or traveling.

iPhone 3G Stylus Pen Stylus made from special materials designed specifically for touch screen phones, will let you type faster and with greater accuracy.

iPhone 3G Extended Warranty The iPhone 3G comes with a 2-year phone support, 1-year hardware support warranty, but youre probably going to have your phone a lot longer than that. Extending the warranty to a total of two years for all kinds of support probably the life of an iPhone, or close to it (will you be able to resist upgrading before that?) will cost you just US$6/month.
iPhone 3G App Store Programs The key appeal of the iPhone 2.0 software that the iPhone 3G runs on is its support for the App Store, Apples repository of official third-party programs such as games, blogging tools, and productivity aides. While the iPhone itself is great, expanding its functionality with App Store programs will make it infinitely more fun. Most programs range from free to US$9.99. Learn more about the App Store

Check out these accessories if you plan some specific uses for your iPhone 3G.

iPhone 3g Cradle & Dock While not a strict necessity, some people prefer to stand their iPhones up in one of these little plastic stands while syncing. The first-generation iPhone came with a dock, but Apple now sells them separately.

iPhone 3G Car Mount & Car Kit You would probably want to use your iPhone while in oyur car or RV or boat, get a car mount to easily connect to your car stereo. You should definitely consider getting a car charger if the item does not come with one.

iPhone 3G Headsets/Headphones Though the headphones that come with the iPhone 3G are perfectly serviceable and include a way to use the phone you may want a higher-quality means to listen to your music on the go. Headsets also serves as a Send/End button, for answering and ending of iPhone calls, and it even controls basic music playback.

Five Ways for Protecting Your Cell Phone against Water Damage

Cell phones are just like any other electronic device when it comes to getting wet. If you will be near the ocean or lakes frequently, a waterproof phone is an optimal selection. More often than not, if you get your cell phone wet, it is going to end up being ruined. To protect your cell phone from water damage, fortunately, there are several tips you can follow.

Don't take it to the restroom with you

Do not take your electronics into the bathroom with you. Additionally, you could make the mistake of damaging these units, and you could consequently be hurt from an electric shock as well. Unless you have to take a very important call, make it a point to avoid using your phone inside the bathroom. If you're unavailable for whatever reason, you can activate your phone's voice mail settings so people can leave a message.

Keep cell phones in water-proof container to avoid exposure during any aquatic pastimes

You can buy a waterproof case for it or place it in an airtight plastic bag, if you can't afford to leave your phone at home when going boating or walking near lakes, beaches, ponds and other bodies of water. If your cell phone is securely placed in the waterproof case, you will not have to worry about getting it wet when walking near water anymore. When you are about to go swimming, make sure to put your phone away from places where water could leak or easily form puddles.

Make certain that it is well protected from storms or rain

When it rains, always use an umbrella, and never make phone calls. It is also a good idea to keep your cell phone in a waterproof bag or case during rainy seasons. If you absolutely must answer your cell phone in wet conditions, be very careful to keep it dry during use. You could also buy a hands-free headset so you could easily make calls while keeping your phone safe inside your bag.

Always remove your cell phone from your pocket the minute you get home

Those of you who habitually keep your phones in your pocket, you should always remember this easy-to-follow tip. If you forget to remove your phone from your pocket, it might end up in the washing machine with your clothes. Our washing machine is blamed for being the culprit of destroying our clothes, losing socks, causing ink stains all over our favorite shirts. Maybe, if you would examine your pockets before tossing your dirty clothes in the h amper or washing machine, that mechanical monster won't destroy your cell phone.

Strongly consider purchasing waterproof accessories for your cell phone

There are several great accessories and options such as waterproof cases and skins for your phone, all of which are available online and in shops. If you need to multitask and do things that expose your cell phone to wet weather or water, then these will provide additional protection.

These days, just because you get your cell phone wet does not mean it is ruined. There are several techniques and devices intended to repair or prevent water damage.
