Windows 7 Gets Touchy With New Logo Program

A new Windows Touch logo will brand PCs and inform consumers that the hardware and all of its components are optimized for Windows 7’s touch technologies. On the latest Windows 7 Engineering blog, the development team detailed the requirements needed to qualify for the logo, which include 43 separate tests for quantitative aspects of the device, such as accuracy, sample rate, and resolution. “For Windows 7, touch support is engineered by building on our advances in input technology we began with the TabletPC work on Windows XP.  Touch in Windows 7 requires improvements in hardware, driver software, core Windows user experience, and of course application support,” added Sinofsky. “By having this support in an open platform, consumers and developers will benefit from a wide variety of choices in hardware, software, and different PC form factors.”

    This late breaking hot news story confirming the Shamwow guy is much 'hotter' than previously thought was apparently overlooked. Alien? Way.

    "Why haven't you folks updated?"

    Hmmm, where to start? Clumsy layout (back and forward buttons at the LEFT of the site address!?!?!?); intrusive features like being forced to choose a "search provider"; disappearance of the visited sites history - apart from the site address drop down menu, not to mention an X on the right of the items that makes it all too easy to delete the site from the list when trying to select it; 1000 x etc. IE7 already was a step down in quality from IE6. And on my XP SP3 install the damn thing won't even let me go back to IE7 at least.

    "German website Schottenland.de is currently listing a 40nm AMD Radeon HD 4750, offering details on the RV740 GPU and other specifics. This could mean we'll be seeing a refresh soon. Looks like it won't be long before desktop Radeon GPUs with 40nm processing will hit the market, and apparently it starts with the Radeon HD 4750.

    Im most excited about the Tesla cars. All the major manufactrurers should get on the bandwagon, Gasoline is an outdated and inefficient technology.

    ( I still want to buy a real sports and muscle car in the future though, do dont go banning gas yet)
