Watch this: Hands-on with the new Windows Phone 7.8 home screen

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cell Phones, Microsoft, Software, Videos,

Microsoft has released a preview showing how the next version of Windows Phone 7, 7.8, will visually look. As you might recall, when the company showed off Windows Phone 8, it also announced that there would be no upgrade path for any Windows Phone 7 devices. However, they also let us know that those users would be able to upgrade to Windows Phone 7.8 in order to get the most obvious and visual feature--the new Windows Phone home screen. Once upgraded to 7.8, users will be able to resize all of their tiles as easily as Windows Phone 8 users can, and in the video above Microsoft's Ben Rudolph walks us through the experience.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sponsors,

Parallels

Another great company has jumped on board to help support Seattle Mind Camp 4.0 - this time, it’s Parallels, Inc. We are sure that many of our attendees are familiar with , but if you aren’t, here’s a synopsis:

Parallels, Inc., an SWsoft company, builds powerful, user-friendly, cost-effective server and workstation virtualization solutions for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. The company is best known for its Parallels Desktop for Mac product, which was the first solution to allow Mac and Windows applications to run side-by-side, at the same time, on any Intel-powered Mac.  The product’s newest version, Parallels Desktop 3.0 for Mac, is a significant upgrade to the award-winning desktop virtualization product that already powers more than half a million Macs worldwide. Since its launch one year ago, Parallels Desktop for Mac has been recognized with MacWorld Magazine’s “Editor’s Choice” Award (the “Eddy”), PC World Magazine’s “Innovation of the Year” Award, and was the first non-Apple product to ever win the MacWorld Magazine Reader’s Choice Award. Parallels Desktop for Mac was also named “Best in Show” at the 2007 MacWorld Expo and in May 2007 was ranked #6 and a “Reader Favorite” on PC World Magazine’s “100 Best Products of 2007” list.

The guys from Parallels will be on hand to talk about their product, and virtualization in general.
