With this ROM it gives me Windows Mobile 6.1 and the build number was 20275.1.3.3

Community Clips

Another beta products from Microsoft Office Labs, basically this is a web site which allow user record their own tutorial video and upload to shared with others. All tutorial topics are restricted to Microsoft Products (what you expect). Screen cast recorder is provided to help you create the video.

Below a quick review on Community Clip v1; After you had installed the application, it start and stay in the system tray. It only provide 3 recording option as shown below.


After recording ended, what you can do was Save, Upload or Email. No post recording process allowed.

Launchy 2.1.2

My favourites application launch tools had released a new version, in case you not aware of this tools I highly recommend your download and install, it will save you time. Below is what’s new in this version;

Launchy is a free windows utility designed to help you forget about your start menu, the icons on your desktop, and even your file manager. Launchy indexes the programs in your start menu and can launch your documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes.

Latest Changes:

  • Added Linux support! (KDE and Gnome both work, possibly others)
  • Added Google Calculator plugin (gcalc)
  • Added configurable default search to weby (all searches with no results default to google)
  • “/” and “\” now tab complete while file browsing
  • Added rescue mode to recover lost windows or forgotten hotkeys (in Linux run “launchy rescue” or use the start menu in windows)
  • Minimum transparency set to 15%
  • Searches are even faster and the catalog uses slightly less memory
  • Fixed the database update timer
  • Fixed centering problem when multiple monitors in use
  • Fixed the url encoding problem, e.g. googling for “c#” now works

FinePrint 6

If you want to give the new version of FinePrint a try, you may want to skip. After installed I found it slow and not much enhancement which worth me to pay US20 for the upgrade. I am still happy with the v5.85 which I am currently using. Just my 2 cents.
