IT pros prefer Windows XP over new Windows 7

Cautious business IT administrators are more willing to stay with the devil they know, Windows XP, than risk the devil they don't, even if the latter is the highly touted Windows 7, a research company said Monday.

According to Dimensional Research, which surveyed more than 1,100 IT professionals in March, 72 percent of those polled said that they are more concerned about the cost and overhead of migrating to Windows 7 than they are about continuing to support the 8-year-old Windows XP. Only 28 percent felt the opposite, that they're more worried about holding XP's hand than migrating to Windows 7.

Dimensional's survey was conducted for KACE Networks, a systems management appliance maker based in Mountain View, Calif. The report can be viewed at KACE website.

Gmail can now find if your friends are sleeping or awake

Gmail Labs has introduced a new feature called Sender Time Zone that can tell if the receiver of your mail might be sleeping or is awake.

How To Turn On the Sender Time Zone Lab Feature?
  • Open Gmail and click on the settings link. Then click on the labs tab.
  • Once in the labs, scroll down to find the Sender Time Zone feature. Enable it and save the settings.
Once this feature is enabled, you’ll notice green phone icons next to your contacts who are awake (that is, it is between 9 AM and 6 PM in their time zone) and red phone icons in front of those contacts who are probably sleeping.

How it Works?

Every email message contains a header which contains all the information about the sender and the receiver, like IP addresses, time zone information etc. Gmail uses the time zone information from these headers to display these icons

What is RT (retweeting)?

I have quite recently joined Twitter and just gathering some knowledge about using it these days. Here is one of the basic term of it, explained for the beginners:

"RT" or "retweeting" is simply taking a twitter post from someone else and forwarding (rebroadcasting) it to your followers. Here are a few common ways to retweet a message (all do the same thing):

RT @originalsender: original message
retweet @originalsender: original message
retweeting @originalsender: original message
Retweeting can be a great way to add followers, as it pushes your @username into foreign social graphs, which in turn results in clicks back to your profile. You can also track your retweets using retweetist.

To retweet this post, type:
