  • chrome not following the rules of windows 7 taskbar?

    @evildictaitor: it was added to the taskbar

  • chrome not following the rules of windows 7 taskbar?

    It may have changed and wouldn't  be a big deal then, but the last I remember is that no app is allowed to pin a shortcut on the taskbar, either during install or after. It was supposed to be the user themselves that do the pinning.

    I just installed chrome and noticed that it had somehow pinned itself to my taskbar. Considering I don't like chrome, and only use it to test compatability, I was upset to see that it had the ability to pin itself to my taskbar.

    Is this still the case? Again, if the taskbar team changed their tune on that and made it easy to pin apps through the API, then whatever...

  • New Fuggly W8 logo

    I hated the logo at first, but now that I've seen it so much, it has grown on me. My tolerance of it though probably comes from the understanding that no matter how much I might * about it, it isn't going to change.

  • Recommend me a new mouse.

    I would recommend the MS wireless 5000 http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/p/wireless-mouse-5000. Not covered in buttons, very comfortable, has a good weight to it, and the rubber grip feels nice.

    I even use this for FPS gaming and do not notice any lag at all. I do have it close to the receiver but even still I do not notice any real difference from when I used wired.

  • Where is the official messenger app for WP7?

    @GoddersUK: well, crap.

  • Where is the official messenger app for WP7?

    So far the only thing that I see is this one from Miyowa. It'a pretty good but is slow when refreshing contact status and plus, of course it isn't a MS app, so it suffers from dehydration when I hit the windows key...

    I want a messenger app that will run in the background.

  • How can I get a ´╗┐Channel9 Guy???

    who makes them? I'd like to know so I could just buy them, as I would like to have more than one. You'd think they would be available from the microsoft company store.

  • Windows Home Server

    I'm kind of struggling to see how WHS backups could be 'simpler'. I don't have to do anything, it just works.

    even if it weren't simpler, (which they seem both the same to me in ease of use as far as backups go) it's a no brainer to go with WHS. A nearly identical version of windows server 2003 standard for $150? hell yes.

  • So I decided I want a tablet

    I can understand that. What are the avantages of a Tablet compared to paper and a pen? Would it save you time?

    When I was in school, there were plenty of times that I would have loved to have a tablet for notes. There were many times that I would have been taking notes and maybe would have drawn a graph on my paper, then finding out I made it too big to write more words next to it, then having to grab a new sheet or flip over to the other side and draw an arrow to my graph from the wording I had just written, etc. It would have been great to be able to just grab my drawing on the sheet of paper and resize it or move it over some without having to erase some.


    A tablet wouldn't have saved me any time, but it would have definitely made note taking more concise, and easier to read.

  • Disappointed about WP7 APIs

    Just thought this post needed updating. It looks like pivot and panoramas are going to be available for us after all. Though, we are still missing a few other really nice to have
