Windows Phone 7 goes RTM

Sure, Apple's been stealing most of the blog headlines this afternoon, but Microsoft has some pretty big news of their own. Today, Windows Phone 7 was officially released to manufacturing -- and the boys in Redmond are pretty stoked about it. Microsoft's Terry Myerson certainly sounds pumped in the official blog post. "We've had thousands of independent software vendors and early adopters...

Windows 7 celebrates its first birthday

It's somewhat hard to believe, but Windows 7 turned one year old today. July 22nd of 2009 saw the initial release of the Windows 7 RTM, with torrent sites beating Microsoft to the punch (but hey, that's become sort of a running gag at this point). Windows 7 has been a huge win for Microsoft so far, pushing customer satisfaction levels to a new high and helping to accelerate the move to 64-bit...

Remember the Milk and Appigo can't get along; users get screwed

[Update] As Michael points out in the comments, I neglected to mention that Appigo has worked out a deal with Toodledo to offer a free for 6 months Toodledo PRO account to all affected customers. Remember the Milk, if you're not familiar with it, is a very popular web-based task management application that we've frequently covered here at Download Squad. In fact, I've been a big supporter of...

Office 2010 RTM now available for download by Technet, MSDN subscribers

While you won't be seeing it on retail shelves just yet, Microsoft has flicked the Office 2010 switch on MSDN and Technet. This morning, the beta version was finally replaced with the RTM and both 32 and 64-bit downloads are now available. The actual Office 2010 page on Microsoft's site seems to be undergoing some changes right now, as it's been inaccessible at times. It could also be that...

App for the Milk is a desktop client for Remember the Milk

App for the Milk is a cross-platform Adobe Air-based desktop client version of the extremely popular online task management application Remember the Milk. One of the unique aspects of Remember the Milk is that it lends itself well to various user interface interpretations.

Remember The Milk released for Android (if you're a Pro subscriber)

Remember The Milk have released their new client for Android devices in the Android Market. Available as a free download, the client does require the user to have a 'Pro' account, which is priced at $25 per year. This puts the official client at odds with the popular (and excellent) third party solution Astrid, which can be used with free accounts. The official application does bring a...

As mentioned a two weeks ago - and now been confirmed by an 'inside source' close to our chum...

Flipping the Linux switch: Forgetful penguins love Tasque

Do you forget stuff? Do you wonder where the heck you put the keys when they're in your right hand? Do you get in the shower with your socks still on? Do you ever get to the bus stop, and realize you can't recall if you've put on pants? We're the only ones? Really? Damn.

Windows Vista SP1 released to manufacturers

Microsoft has released Windows Vista SP1 to manufacturers. What does that mean? While public release candidates of SP1 have been available for months, you'll actually be able to walk into a store and buy a computer running the updated version of Windows Vista pretty soon. Microsoft is also beginning to manufacture Windows Vista installation DVDs with Windows Vista SP1, which means you'll be...

This is a good day," he said of Microsoft signing off on the final code.

Windows Vista not quite ready yet

According to Microsoft exec Jim Allchin, Windows Vista isn't on track for RTM (release to manufacturing) on the its target date of October 25. Allchin says they're still "in pretty good shape" but that Vista doesn't yet fulfill all five categories they're looking at before RTM: reliability, security, performance, driver coverage and application compatibility. Allchin is confident they're still on...

Microsoft to release Vista RC2 on Friday

Despite its previous statements to the contrary, on Friday Microsoft will be putting out a second release candidate of Windows Vista, sort of. According to Paul Thurrott, what Microsoft is calling "RC2" is the last pre-release build that will be seen before Vista's official release to manufacturers, but isn't anything more than an ordinary interim build. Unlike RC1, RC2 won't be a public release...
