I ordered backup DVD as I like to collect them as my son’s museum collection 20 years later, I have boxed Vista and Windows 7 as well.

The download was quick as I hardwired the router instead of using wifi, installation was flawless almost. When I tried to login with my @outlook.com email address my MacBook Pro keyboard wasn’t recognized, the @ was at the wrong place and I had to use the onscreen keyboard to locate the key.

As usual I grabbed the WEI for reference.

Fusion 5

October 27, 2012

My upgrade to Fusion 4 was just over a year ago, in essence $49.9 is license fee for a year if you want to keep using the latest version.

I started using Windows 8 since September 2011 with its official launch yesterday it looks like very soon I have to decide what’s the best way to upgrade from my Windows 7 copy, i.e. download for $40 or boxed copy of $69.99, certainly I’ll wait for a while when initial launch issues are all sorted.

I’m sure Microsoft will block the use of Preview copies very soon.

EarPods

I’m not getting a new phone anytime soon so decided to have this to enhance driving safety.

I have Nokia BT earphone for a while overall I’m pretty happy with it however I don’t think I’ll have to use it anywhere outside my car so why don’t I use something that doesn’t require charging? I also don’t understand these days why people design gadget that can’t be charged by a USB port.
