Windows 7 the next-gen operating system is finally getting ready and it should hit the markets in mid 2009, many of you may wonder what the new operating system looks like, well most of the looks are borrowed from Windows Vista itself, but there are several new things people would definitely like.

Hopefully Microsoft should be able to deliver on time, the Vista debacle is still strongly talked about as a failure point for the lack of popularity the latest OS got.

Picasa 3.0 beta announced!

September 3, 2008

I fell in love with the picture management software Picasa about two years ago. Google has just announced the next version, Picasa 3

Download and more information

A little caption out of Google’s Blog:

A little over two years ago, we launched Picasa Web Albums to make publishing photos online easy. Now Picasa Web Albums hosts billions of online photos from around the globe, with users adding millions of new snapshots every day. Each of these photos records a different moment, or a different perspective, but one thing they all have in common is that in each case, the person behind the camera wanted to share their experience with a friend, their extended family, or maybe the world.

For starters, there’s a brand-new feature called “name tags” in Picasa Web Albums that helps you quickly label all the people in your photos, so you can organize and share your photos based on who’s in the picture. Name tags uses advanced technology to automatically group similar faces together. That way, you can quickly label all the people you care about in your photo collection. Once you’ve labeled your photos, it’s then a snap to do things like create a slideshow with every picture of you and your best friend, or easily share party photos with everybody who appears in that photo album.
