The next major step to Windows 7 has finally arrived, and we are talking about the Release Candidate. The beta versions have constantly been updated till this RC version. You need to take note of the time though. The RC will expire on June 1, 2010. Starting on March 1, 2010, your PC will begin shutting down every two hours. Both 32bit and 64bit versions are available. Check out the official site here.

I don’t believe this! I don’t know who is dumber.. the ignorant customer who thought 1GB RAM is sufficient for Vista, or Acer, who thinks they could pull off this stunt of selling under-spec ed machines.

In a lawsuit filed in federal court in San Francisco last Wednesday, Lora and Clay Wolph said that the Aspire notebook they bought in April 2008 “would not run properly” and would constantly freeze or crash when they tried to run Vista Home Premium.

Acer responded: ‘If the system does not run properly, please not that Windows Vista recommended requirements for the memory is 1GB of system memory. However, the minimum requirements is 512MB of memory in which your system is pre-installed with. This means that the system is still able to run Windows Vista properly.

Looks like Acer didn’t have a choice but to come out with this desperate answer. We all know that 1GB RAM for Windows Vista is a joke, let alone 512MB RAM! These days where RAM is dirt cheap, it should be illegal to sell 1GB machines. In fact, I required 2GB for my Windows XP machine!

Anyways, read up the whole story at Computerworld.

I’m very sure we have heard about 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratio televisions, with the latter being increasingly popular. While the market is still getting people to move on to wide-screen TVs, Philips launches an ultra wide-screen TV, with a cinematically perfect aspect ratio of 21:9.

If you notice, black bars are still present on the top and bottom of our wide-screen TVs while watching most movies. That because of the movie aspect format which is 21:9 (more commonly known as 2.39:1, although not exactly same)

This is where this TV comes in, delivering a border-free video. Now I got so many questions in my mind, like how 16:9/4:3 videos are handled and is this a beginning of a new standard? Anyways, it’s a 56″ panel and Philips have firmed up its pricing to be €4,000 (SG$7712). This TV was announced earlier this year and its gonna be out this June.

Check out more pictures here. Also, learn more about aspect ratios on Wiki.
