Update puts the "hot" in Hotmail: attachments up to 50MB, better organization, and much more (Download Squad)

May 18th 2010 11:13AM Just wanted to also note that according to Paul Thurrott the rollout for the new Hotmail should begin soon:

"The new Hotmail will begin rolling out to customers around the time of the consumer release of Office 2010, June 15, because of the related release of the SkyDrive-based Office Web Apps. I don't have a firm release date per se, but my understanding is that it will occur over time and should begin by June 15."

Jan 13th 2010 1:21PM This actually looks like an amazing product. It would provide some good arsenal against my mac using friends as well :) A decent backup solution is always a great thing.

Windows Mobile 7 reportedly delayed until 2011 (Download Squad)

Jan 12th 2010 11:11AM Sorry for the hasty assumptions based on the title. I was speaking more out the frustrations of seeing Retweets in my feed promoting the garbage that BSN was reporting.

Comments about bad reporting completely refracted! Apologies again.

You guys are still the best. Keep up the good work!

Windows Mobile 7 reportedly delayed until 2011 (Download Squad)

Jan 12th 2010 10:50AM Typically you guys are on the ball with this stuff. But check your facts next time. Tom Warren of Neowin.net has just blown this story out of the water.

Bad reporting is bad.

Mozilla dev shares new info on Firefox 4 for Windows (Download Squad)

Dec 22nd 2009 10:12AM I feel like the title bar should have an option to be hidden as well. Based on the image on the UI developer website, the difference in screen real-estate is barely noticeable.

*Note* in the screenshot he shows, the FF3.5 screenshot has the bookmarks bar turned on, while the other does not.

If Firefox is adapting the Chrome-Look, then they should at least lose the title-bar as well (or give the option to hide it) so that they can adapt the functional positives of the Chrome UI as opposed to just playing catchup visually.

Style is great, but without function its pointless in my opinion.

I'm just curious.

Thanks

Oct 27th 2009 10:32AM Any idea as to whether or not they support x64 systems yet? Last I checked (admittedly a while ago), they still did not. Just curious if that has changed.

Google Chrome adds better theme support, gallery in the works (Download Squad)

Jul 30th 2009 6:54PM If you're interested in some better looking themes, I would recommend checking out www.chromeplugins.org , Here is a link to a great looking "Grey" theme, which I found on their site.

http://www.chromeplugins.org/google/chrome-themes/gr4y-theme-7942.html

It installs just like the themes listed above do, and no messing around with the "default.dll" files as Lee mentioned.
