Interesting Find #15

  1. Shared View from Microsoft – a fast, easy way to share documents and screen views with small groups anytime, anywhere and works across physical boundaries, through firewalls, and down to the smallest details.
  2. Switcher – gets Expose (from Mac) on Windows very cool! (you need Vista + Aero)
  3. VS.NET 2008 SP1 likely to come later this year adds a lot of new stuff.
  4. SMS things (only if you are in the US)
    • SMS411 – helps you send SMS to phone's on specific carriers in the US.
    • Teleflip – goes a step further and automatically figures out the carrier (also only for the US).
  5. TFS Admin – seems to do a few interesting things if you admin TFS (I have not used it first hand so can't say).
  6. Many Books – offers thoughts of free eBooks in many formats for your PDA, iPod, or eBook reader.
  7. Hadoop – is a framework for running applications on large clusters built of commodity hardware; it is effectively a grid application which under the covers uses a DFS and can supposedly scale up to reliably store and process petabytes.
  8. Invisible Computing – research prototype for making small devices part of the seamless computing world. It consists of compact middleware for constructing embedded web services applications and a small component based Real-Time Operating System with TCP/IP networking to make middleware run straight on the metal on several embedded processors.
  9. Chumby – seems interesting concept – but I get all that on my phone and will it work in the uk?
  10. Delta Copy -  robocopy on steroids; this on copies the sectors that have changed. So if you have a 2 gb PST file – only the new sectors are copied instead of the whole file. Note – there as issues with Vista!
  11. pptPlex – allows you to present PowerPoint using a zoomable canvas instead of slides – quite interesting.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
