Samsung Eternity

the Eternity (aka the SGH-A867) offers an attractive design with a intuitive touch-screen interface, a solid assortment of multimedia features, good call quality, and impressive battery life. The Eternity offers all of the Vu’s features and adds Samsung’s lovely TouchWiz UI with widgets, a GPS, a better touch screen interface, expanded music format compatibility and a higher resolution camera. messaging (good) For messaging, SMS and MMS worked well, with a clean-looking messaging app.

  • Call quality on our Samsung Eternity review unit was very good, with calls that sounded loud and clear.
  • The browser responded quickly to our touch, but didn’t keep moving once we lifted our finger. There was no acceleration, so scrolling was a long and laborious chore on large pages.

Find bottlenecks on Windows 7

From what we’ve seen so far Windows 7 is already performing better than Vista, but if your PC seems sluggish then it’s now much easier to uncover the bottleneck. Click Start, type RESMON and press Enter to launch the Resource Monitor, then click the CPU, Memory, Disk or Network tabs. Windows 7 will immediately show which processes are hogging the most system resources.

The CPU view is particularly useful, and provides something like a more powerful version of Task Manager. If a program has locked up, for example, then right-click its name in the list and select Analyze Process. Windows will then try to tell you why it’s hanging – the program might be waiting for another process, perhaps – which could give you the information you need to fix the problem.

Customise the log-on screen of Wondows 7

Changing the Windows log-on screen used to involve some complicated and potentially dangerous hacks, but not any more – Windows 7 makes it easy.

First, browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background in REGEDIT, double-click the DWORD key called OEMBackground (not there? Create it) and set its value to 1.

Now find a background image you’d like to use. Make sure it’s less than 256KB in size, and matches the aspect ratio of your screen as it’ll be stretched to fit.

Next, copy that image into the %windir%\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds folder (create the info\backgrounds folders if they don’t exist). Rename the image to backgroundDefault.jpg, reboot, and you should now have a custom log-on image.

Alternatively, use a free tweaking tool to handle everything for you. Logon Changer displays a preview so you can see how the log-on screen will look without rebooting, while the Logon Screen Rotator accepts multiple images and will display a different one every time you log on.

PDFmyURL turns any site into a PDF

PDF enthusiasts have a new Web converter tool at their disposal withPDFmyURL, a simple, one-function site that converts any live Web site into a static PDF file–something handy for offline reading, long-term archiving, and sticking on PDF-friendly e-book readers like Amazon’s Kindle. It can also be a lifesaver, if you’re on a computer without PDF-making software that would otherwise enable you to “print” a PDF copy of your own.

In every way, PDFmyURL, which launched on Tuesday, is the exact opposite of one of our favorite PDF sites,PDFMeNot (currently down), which takes hosted PDF links and turns them into HTML-friendly Web pages–the big difference, of course, being that when PDFMeNot is done, you have a lean, mean Web page to tear through, whereas PDFmyURL leaves you with, well…a PDF. Not quite as sexy.

The tool does a phenomenal job at maintaining formatting, including correct font sizes and in-line images. Advanced users also have a number of tweaks they can add to the end of whichever URL they drop in that can change how the PDF is created, my favorite being the size of the paper on which you may intend to printing it.
