Passmark OSFMount mounts CD, DVD, DD images and VMWare virtual discs

There are plenty of free tools out there that allow you to mount disc images as virtual drives, but Passmark's OSFMount offers a bit of additional functionality. Apart from being able to mount everything from ISOs to raw DD (a Unix imaging tool) images to VMWare virtual disks, OSFMount can also extend and format certain types. Images may also be mounted as a RAM drive, which can yield better...

Activate specific windows in Windows 7 with a taskbar keyboard shortcut

This week, we're running a series of keyboard tips and tricks that help you make the most of Windows 7. To see the previous tips, check our Tips index. The Windows 7 taskbar has large, chunky icons. They're easy to hit with the mouse, but what's nicer still is that they're easy to count. You can easily see what's the third icon, for example, and so, hitting Win+3 would be like clicking that...

LG, in cooperation with fellow juggernaut Microsoft, is going to offer 10 free 'popular' Windows Phone 7 applications to its users every 60 days. These 10 apps will always have a combined value of more than $30, and will include social, connectivity, utility and gaming titles.

Windows Phone 7: the important bits

Today saw the release of the first in-depth previews of Microsoft's next-generation mobile operating system Windows Phone 7. The problem is, I don't really care about the screen, or indeed any of the hardware. I'm not interested in half the things that Engadget or ZDNet have to say about the phone: I'm just interested in what the software -- the operating system -- enables the phone to do. I...

Windows Phone Developer Tools beta released; lots of updates, free classes for developers and more

Developers, you can now grab a shiny, new, 'near final version' of the Windows Phone Developer Tools! Since its announcement in February, Microsoft has obviously been ploughing a lot of resources into its next-generation mobile operating system. With consumers (and developers!) are jumping from the ailing Windows Mobile platform in record numbers, Windows Phone 7 can't come soon enough....

Mozilla halts development on Windows Mobile version of Firefox

Since Microsoft has decided to phase out Windows Mobile and make a fresh start with Windows Phone 7, it's no surprise that Mozilla has stopped development on the Windows Mobile version of Firefox. The browser was due out later this year, but under the circumstances, it makes more sense for Mozilla to divert its attention (and money) to developing Firefox on other platforms. We don't know yet...

Windows Phone 7 Series at SXSW

With a large Windows Phone 7 Series sign calling me I set out to find an actual working example of a new Windows powered phone. With a little finagling was able to sweet talk my way into the Microsoft's blogger lounge at South by Southwest Interactive. While there seems to be only one example running around here somewhere, which I'm working to track down, there was a demo of the OS on a...

Windows Mobile 6.x users won't get Windows Phone 7 upgrade

Bad news for owners of the latest Windows Mobile 6.x devices: your phone doesn't meet the hardware specifications for an update to Windows Phone 7. Microsoft says that even the brand new HTC HD2 doesn't meet its tight requirements for the much-talked-about new mobile OS, according to APCMag. Even though the HD2 has a fast enough processor, a nice touch display, and a good enough camera,...

Windows Phone 7 gets the hands-on treatment

While we try to shy away from gadgets and gizmos here on Download Squad, some attention does have to be paid to operating systems. They are, after all, the reason this blog exists! An operating system makes or breaks a device -- it's the difference between grudging oh, it's my company phone acceptance and mass omg, you must check this OUT! adoption. Of course, try as they might, a vendor...

Skype kills off its Windows Mobile client... for now

Skype has removed the download links for Skype and Skype Lite for Windows Mobile devices. If you've already got Skype loaded up on your phone or PDA, you can keep using it. But according to Skype's FAQ, the company felt the Windows Mobile version was "not offering the best possible Skype experience." Of course, pulling the software altogether instead of working furiously to provide an awesome...

Google Nexus One Review

Google first unveiled its Android operating system for smartphones in 2007. But the Google Nexus One, which was launched last month is the first phone with the Google name attached to the hardware. Google sells the phone through its web site and handles tech support for the smartphone, although mobile service is provided by T-Mobile (and soon Verizon) in the US. The Nexus One has a faster...

Firefox Mobile for Android this year, Windows Mobile... later?

The folks at Mozilla have been working on a mobile version of the popular Firefox web browser for much of the past two years. A lot of that work has been focused on Windows Mobile and Nokia's Maemo platform. But in October, we found out that a version for Google Android devices was on its way. We even saw an early screenshot earlier this month. Now we have something resembling a time frame. ...

SPB Mobile Shell 5.0 now available for Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile

Mobile software maker SPB is launching SPB Shell 5.0. Like previous versions, SPB Shell basically replaces your phone's default user interface with a customizable "shell." What's new in version 5.0 is that SPB Shell ain't just for Windows Mobile anymore. It's also available for Symbian and Google Android phones. SPB Shell 5.0 also has a new 3D engine, support for 3D widgets, and 3D applications...

Windows Phone 7 Series demoed on video - a lot

Earlier today Microsoft introduced the world to the latest version of the Windows Mobile operating system: Windows Phone 7 Series. While we aren't expecting any phones running this OS to be available until later this year, the company had a number of demo units on-hand at Mobile World Congress, and the web is starting to fill up with videos demonstrating the new UI, including the video at the top...
