Yesterday, while at the Apple Store for a free replacement clamshell/LCD for my 15″ MacBook Pro Retina (sudden-onset ghosting issues, to use a medical term), I caved-in and got an Apple TV. It’s something I’d given plenty of thought to in the past, but was never really sold on. In the end, the $99 price tag and my growing frustration at streaming Netflix shows and movies from my desktop to my plasma HDTV won me over.
The initial experience was pretty much par for the course: beautifully packaged, incredible attention to detail, sexy product, and gorgeous cabling. I made sure to tuck the box away somewhere safe, because Apple boxes are too beautiful to throw away.
But that was where the bliss ended and the agony began. Because of the sheer tinyness of the Apple TV compared to all my other media products, and because lag is not a primary concern as it would be with a gaming device, this was the first time that I decided to connect one of my media products via wifi instead of over ethernet (XBox, HDTV, printers, and more – all connected to a gigabit router).
In the past 10 to 15 years, it has become harder and harder to obtain recovery or installation discs for your Windows PC or laptop. Computer companies no longer distribute a recovery or repair DVD with your purchase, and when your Windows stops working or won’t boot, recovery and repair options are usually limited.
Instead of giving customers real restore or recovery CDs and DVDs with their purchase of a Windows notebook, laptop, or PC, big-names in the industry like HP, Dell, Samsung, Acer, Lenovo, Toshiba and others now usually require you to make the recovery CDs or USBs yourself after buying your computer. But many times, computers fail and software updates go wrong before you’ve made a recovery disk or when you’ve lost the recovery CD. The real Windows 8 installation DVD can be used to access many recovery options, use system restore, and automatically fix boot problems or blue screens.
Easy Recovery Essentials for Windows, the ultimate and easiest-ever Windows system repair CD that automatically finds and fixes problems with your Windows PC, has been officially released!
Back in April, we first announced the beta of Windows Recovery Essentials: our software to automatically detect, diagnose, and repair a multitude of common and uncommon issues that could prevent Windows from running or cause a BSOD on boot. It’s been a little longer than we originally anticipated, but over the months the Windows Recovery Essentials has been renamed to Easy Recovery Essentials (EasyRE for short), graduated out of beta going to a soft release, and is now being officially announced as grown up and ready to help everyone out of a tight spot!
EasyRE is available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7, for all editions and platforms. We are working hard on making a Windows 8 version available ASAP – we are expecting to see that version released sometime in the next week or two.
Quick: what takes 5 years, two failed attempts, and thirteen contributors? Answer: EasyBCD with multilanguage support!
Who knew it would be this hard to release a version of EasyBCD that supports languages from English to Arabic and from Korean to Russian? We certainly had no idea it would take this long and this much work back in June of 2007 when we first attempted this gargantuan task! It turns out it’s not such an easy thing to organize and manage the translation of a medium-sized software project – and that no good tools existed to make it possible.
We were expecting to find (this late into the game) a plethora of .NET localization tools and resources that would make the job ridiculously easy, but it turns out all the existing solutions were terrible for one reason or another: too hard for non-developers to grasp, no versioning support, no on-the-fly deployment (i.e. requires recompilation), no unicode support, text-only interfaces, and the list goes on and on. We had to develop our own complete end-to-end translation and globalization framework and associated utilities (xml-based, text-editable, translation interface, versioning support, unicode support, on-the-fly deploy, string aliasing, derivable strings, language cleanup, outdated/missing string search, and more!), which we’ve open sourced to save others the trouble in the future.
Now that we have the excuses out of the way, let us introduce EasyBCD 2.2, complete with 13 languages from around the globe. With much thanks to the following people, we have been able to provide these languages out-of-the-box with EasyBCD 2.2:
It’s our pleasure to announce that our system repair and recovery CDs that have been immensely popular for Windows Vista and Windows 7 are now available for Windows XP as well!
While the XP edition has been available for download for a while now, we’re officially releasing it today as it now meets and exceeds all our requirements for reliability, performance, and stability. EasyRE for Windows XP can help repair and recovery your non-booting or non-working Windows XP installation into a working condition, whether you are suffering from boot-related problems such as NTLDR is missing, NTDETECT failed, or boot.ini not found; or if you have a boot virus, registry corruption, improperly applied system updates, bad drivers, or more.
Our repair CDs will automatically scan for, detect, diagnose, and repair problems with your PC, repairing it and saving you from having to take it in to the shop or needing to format and reinstall, all while saving you a hefty amount of money in the process.
Continuing the tradition started long ago, now that Windows 8 RTM has been made available, we’re excited to announce the availability of the one part of Windows 8 everyone can agree is an excellent and welcome feature, and one we’re all more than willing and eager to welcome and embrace with open arms: the new official wallpapers and backgrounds!
There are some really great additions to the previous entries from the beta builds, though in a completely different vein from what we’ve come to expect from Windows Vista and Windows 7: not as much focus on natural beauty. In many ways, the Windows 8 wallpapers feel a lot more like the ones we first saw in the Longhorn beta: focus on effects, stressing modernity, and lots of color. Not a bad thing, of course… after all, the Longhorn wallpapers were what first started the whole craze.
