I know have we thw world has been waiting for this moment; “the 2008 Beijing Olympics.” What can I say its the most exciting event in history for the year 2008. I know I have promised the Dresonic community TV-J and CVM-TV links, but unfortunately that didn’t not work out as the link I was discontinued. I have been looking high and low to find a link so I can bring Sonic Surfers Olympic joy. Well don’t worry I have found a way that I think we all can be pleased with– and NO ITS NO YOUTUBE!!!! Well really all you have to do is follow the instructions below and you will be on your way to learning Chinese and watching Asafa and Bolt demolish the track.
(High Speed Internet Recommended)
Instructions to watching Beijing Olympics online:
1. Go this link and download the file Silverlight.2.0 as you will need this to view the videos. (Don’t worry this is not spam, it is a Microsoft certified software so it is safe to install)
2. Next thing go to the website http://www.nbcolympics.com/ and you will see a full schedule of every event.
3. The video player will ask you to fill in some information about your internet provider and zip code in the United States. I recommend for you to put 06604 as Zip Code and Direct Tv as your internet provider from the drop down list. It will give you a message. Just click next or ok.
4. After that you will be ready to watch the Olympics on demand.
All the best Sonic Surfers

I’ve got to admit that I wouldn’t be surprised to see Microsoft table Service Pack (SP) 3 for Windows XP, as Windows expert Paul Thurrott claims the Redmondians have done.
“The company has completely abandoned Windows XP, and it has absolutely no plans to ever ship an XP SP3,” Thurrott posted to his Web site on April 6. “My guess is that Microsoft will do what it did with the final Windows 2000 Service Pack: Claim years later that it’s no longer needed and just ship a final security patch roll-up. This is the worst kiss-off to any Microsoft product I’ve ever seen, and you’d think the company would show a little more respect to its best-selling OS of all time.”
Last fall, Microsoft admitted that XP SP3 had slipped and was now a 2008 deliverable. If Microsoft were to go a step further and dump XP SP3, such a move wouldn’t be too shocking, especially given Redmond’s ongoing reticence to commit to Vista SP1 because service packs are passe.
I asked Microsoft for an official comment on Thurrott’s XP SP3 post and received the following response:
“SP3 for Windows XP Home Edition [and Professional] is currently plannedfor 1H CY2008. This date is preliminary,” said a Microsoft spokeswoman.
In other words: At least for now, Microsoft is sticking by the XP SP3 information on its product-lifecycle page.
Anyone else hearing SP3 will (or won’t) be a 2008 deliverable?

Microsoft originally described its Windows Vista Capable program as the following (all bold emphasis added by Seattle Times author):
“Through the Windows Vista Capable program, Windows XP-based PCs that are powerful enough to run Windows Vista are now available from leading PC manufacturers worldwide, including Acer Inc., Dell Inc., Fujitsu Limited, Gateway Inc., HP, Lenovo, NEC Corp., Sony Corp., Toshiba and more. The Windows Vista Capable logo is designed to assure customers that the PCs they buy today will be ready for an upgrade to Windows Vista and can run the core experiences of Windows Vista.”
Shortly following the news of the lawsuit, the explanation of the Windows Vista Capable program appeared to have changed to this:
“A new PC running Windows XP that carries the Windows Vista Capable PC logo can run Windows Vista. All editions of Windows Vista will deliver core experiences such as innovations in organizing and finding information, security, and reliability. All Windows Vista Capable PCs will run these core experiences at a minimum. Some features available in the premium editions of Windows Vista — like the new Windows Aero user experience — may require advanced or additional hardware.”

Paradox group have released a fully working crack for Windows Vista (see screenshot / details), which allows you even get all of the automatic updates just the same as any legitimate Vista user could. How does it work? Microsoft allows large hardware manufacturers (e.g. ASUS, HP, Dell) to ship their products containing a Windows Vista installation that does NOT require any kind of product activation as this might be considered an unnecessary inconvenience for the end-user. Instead these so-called ‘Royalty OEMs’ are granted the right to embed certain license information into their hardware products, which can be validated by Windows Vista to make obtaining further activation information (online or by phone) obsolete.
This mechanism is commonly referred to as ‘SLP 2.0’ (‘system-locked pre-installation 2.0’) and consists of the following three key elements. So the basic concept of the tool at hand is to present any given BIOS ACPI_SLIC information to Windows Vista’s licensing mechanism by means of a device driver. In combination with a matching product key and OEM certificate this allows for rendering any system practically indistinguishable from a legit pre-activated system shipped by the respective OEM.

Windows Vista is officially in stores today, but before you plunk down your hard-earned cash, make sure you’re getting what you expect. With Vista’s ability to adjust its features based on the hardware it’s on, CNET reports:
Customers who pay about $233 for an upgrade copy of Vista Ultimate (or about $399 for the full version), for instance, could essentially end up running the equivalent of Vista Home Basic ($100 to $199) if Vista’s installation software finds that the computer doesn’t have the hardware to run specific Ultimate features optimally.
If you’re upgrading your existing PC, while it’s not foolproof, give your computer a once-through with the Vista Upgrade Advisor. The checker doesn’t tell you whether or not the swanky Vista features like Aero or BitLocker will work on your machine, so buying from a retailer who will back a return on the OS – like PCs for Everyone – will get you a little extra insurance.

It can be disputed and even taken to court that the 360 has and edge over the slick and sexy Ps3 that has been a superstar for the makers and a hater for the consumers. No Really, forking out 20 bucks is hard enough to buy food at walmart much more buying a piece of plastic for $700 bucks. Sony wake up and smell the coffee or tea…what ever it is you guys over at sony are drinking wake up and smell it. Read the rest of this entry »
