The End of Windows Control Panel

Filed under: News — admin @ 3:09 pm

The original Windows featured an icon-based Control Panel.

Windows XP offered two views of the Control Panel: Icons and text/link. That trend continued through Windows 7, with the emphasis on the text-based Control Panel.

Windows 8 kept the original Control Panel (dual mode) but added a PC Settings screen.

Windows 9 will never exist.

Windows 10 is trying to bring the text-based Control Panel and PC Settings screen together. Will the old icon-based Control Panel final rest in peace?

Sneak Peek at the New iMac

What’s a 5K screen? Apparently it’s very beautiful. I can’t tell by reading the article because my computer doesn’t have a 5K screen. Therefore I must trudge over to the Apple Store to have a looksee.

Google Glass Withdrawal

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:31 am

I’m not certain whether this story is bogus or not (I don’t know the British papers), but apparently a man wore his Google Glass gizmo nearly 24 hours every day. He is now suffering from withdrawal symptoms when he doesn’t wear the device. He even dreams about it.
