Windows 8 Coming Soon!

There are rumors around the internet about the upgrade of the newly released Operating System Windows 7 (which sold 400 million licenses around the world) which is the said Windows 8. But the said rumors are true which was conformed during the day 1 of the annual Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference.

Microsoft will make at least four different versions of Windows 8 for devices with ARM processors, but you won't be running older Windows apps on any them, according to an Intel executive. Renee James, Intel's senior vice president and general manager of Software and Services Group, also reaffirmed thatWindows running on ARM devices will be focused on tablets and other mobile devices.

An Article from that:

Microsoft has been also busy improving and developing its Live services (recently giving Skydrive, an online storage tool, a makeover) and integrating them with Windows 8. However, Windows Live is not yet synchronized with Windows 8 in terms of development. Live is in a Milestone 2 coding phase, with Milestone 1 bits currently being deployed into Windows 8. Next week, we can count on hearing more about Windows 8’s cloud capabilities during the Worldwide Partner Conference next week and, beyond that, the BUILD conference.
Also, Microsoft talks about Windows Server 8 at WPC 2011. This is really exciting and i think will be worth the wait. It always gets me excited when windows releases upgrades.

Microsoft Windows 7 sold 400 million licenses around the world

During the Day 1 keynote of our annual Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Steve Ballmer revealed that Windows 7 has officially sold 400 million licenses to-date. That equates to 7 copies of Windows 7 sold a second. Windows 7 is now running on 27.13% of all PCs worldwide. And of PCs running Windows. - by

How to Add An Icon for your blog (for blogger users only)

I think this is a new feature of the blogger- where you could add your "Favicon",, so to add it,

STEP 1: You must create a design for your icon. You may use Photoshop, or even Microsoft paint or whatever..
A Favicon is also known as a shortcut icon, Web site icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon, is a file containing one or more small icons, most commonly 16×16 pixels, associated with a particular Web site or Web page. A web designer can create such an icon and install it into a Web site (or Web page) by several means, and graphical web browsers will then make use of it. Browsers that provide favicon support typically display a page's favicon in the browser's address bar and next to the page's name in a list of bookmarks. Browsers that support a tabbed document interface typically show a page's favicon next to the page's title on the tab, and site-specific browsers use the favicon as desktop icon.- Wikipedia

Here's an example of a favicon pretty much the same with my favicon found at the title bar..

STEP 2: After Creating your design, try to look for a free conversion of your design like from what format to .ico,,
Here's a link from where I converted my 'favicon image' to .ico format. Don't worry this is totally free..

I think that's all or this topic. thank you!
