I am running Vista RC2 (Build 5744) on my MacBook Core 2 Duo with Boot Camp. Aero works OK. Aero effects do not run in Parallels Desktop for Mac virtualization software. I assume that a PC notebook with the above chipsets would run the Aero effects if it has enough system RAM.

For its part, however, Betterment has found that the key to keeping clients happy has been knowing when to communicate, and knowing when to choose not to. “We do not issue outbound conversations,” Egan says. “We don’t think it’s good to force users to be scared. We wait for them to log in, and we give them a quick message, explaining our view on things.” The onus, then, is on the client to be informed.
As a consequence, Brown’s attention wandered and he didn’t detect the semitrailer in his path, they said.
And on the third floor, there is a library where visitors can “meet” the owner in the form of an actor portraying Gillette.
What Really Happened: For a large part of the Internet, the biggest news story of the week was Zayn Malik leaving One Direction, a decision that he’s since explained was down to his need to regain control of his life. The resulting wave of emotion flooding the Internet was so overwhelming some news organizations sought to contextualize it for older readers, or even try to explain why social media has changed fans’ interaction with pop music as a whole. There were even YouTube supercuts made up of fans’ responses (see above).
Have a Merry Robo-Christmas! And never, EVER give someone a BIRD or a PERSON as a gift. Rings are okay, but robots are best.

Though Facebook, Microsoft and others say they have no gender wage gap, a new survey shows that it exists in the tech industry. The gap in salaries between male and female software engineers at major corporations is 7%, according to a study of 3,000 employers and 15,000 job seekers conducted by career marketplace startup Hired Inc. Younger companies at the “seed” stage have a smaller gender wage gap—4%—among software engineers, the study says.
“This is at best a decent first step,” echoed Stinebrickner-Kauffman of SumOfUs.org. “At worst, the beginning of a white-washing campaign.”
Here I want to gather up knowledge generated from and circulated by many of my favorite e-reader blogs, just to try to give you an inkling of all the things that a new Kindle can do. For organizational purposes, I’m going to do it as a Q&A. Most of these questions I’ve actually been asked (some of them frequently); others are rhetorical. (There are many features you wouldn’t even think to ask about.)
I don’t know about you but I enjoy farmers’ markets exactly because they are so unplugged. As a programmer and writer, I’m on the computer all day and many nights too. So when I attend my local farmers’ market, I stare at these food sellers with a forlorn sigh. Seeing tanned, fit 20-somethings unload baskets full of beautifully bright oranges from their old beat-up trucks, I start daydreaming about the simplicity of a life where I’d work outdoors keeping up my own small farm. I’d never have to worry about null pointer exceptions ever again!
Is Zamzee going to turn every couch potato into an athlete? Probably not. But at $29 for a meter with no monthly fee, it’s worth a shot.
The Amber Alert GPS device operates similar to a mobile phone – you’ll need to pick from two different subscription options depending on how you wish to use the device. The differences between the $14.99/month level (Basic Package) and the $24.99/month level (Premium Package) are mostly with the various alert services (breadcrumbs, Predator alert, etc.) but there are also differences in the number of text message alerts and the overage charges for voice communication. You can check out all the details on the services here.
And hey, if this cell biology thing doesn’t pan out for Janssen, you might be able to nab him as your full-time Lego adviser. The man obviously knows what he’s doing.
After the recording, he prepares his “Daily Tech News Clicks,” an online newsletter with tech headlines from around the world. The work doesn’t stop there, however. In preparation for the following day’s show, he reads the Asian and Australian newspapers, then the European and African newspapers, finally – the following morning – the papers from the Americas.
Note: In an oft-quoted study that I discovered much later, British pediatrician Aidan McFarlaneasked ninety-seven first-time Oxford mothers, “When did you first feel love for your baby?” 40 percent of respondents recalled that their predominant emotional response when they first held their babies had been indifference. According to McFarlane, maternal affection after childbirth was more likely to be delayed if the membranes had been ruptured artificially, if the labor had been long and painful, or if the mothers had received a generous dose of pain-killing medication. In many reports, the mother and father noted that their loving and unique feelings for their baby began once they could have private, quiet time together.
