Windows 7? One3rdNerd.com ponders

So, windows 7 is on the verge, and the beta is currently being tested worldwide, if it wasn’t for my killing my Vaio, leaving me with one laptop, I would have been testing it myself. However the reason I’m excited about it, is simply the way they have incorporated touch screen technology, and the fact they have re-done explorer.exe from scratch.

This video isnt new, but does highlight some of the features that will be exciting to both the average users, and the creative users.

Explorer.exe has supposedly been rebuilt, and thus much faster, I hope this is true, because it has been dragging for some time now. A boring fact, but on to the interesting one..

If you can use your desktop or laptop with touchscreen, then there’s a whole lot of new possibilities, from artists, to musicians, and graphic designers to web designers, many will reap the benefits.

A musician on the go will be able to use their screen like a midi controller, whether they’re playing some keys, or turning nobs. A whole lot more of this can now be “hands on”, with the ability to alter switches, mod wheels and notes in reason, ableton etc, and have the changes recorded in real time, this is truly amazing news. Even in studios the engineers will have the ability to use a large touch screen as their mixer, having the ability to download new operating system software for their touch screen running on windows, Mac will embrace this also at some point, I’m sure they have seen the creative possibilities, and with this being their high end target market, they will no doubt cater for this.

Graphic designers will be able to sketch on their laptops whereever they are, without needing an accessory like a wacom pad or graphics tablet.

Soon, web designers will be building their designs using their fingers to move boxes of colour, text, and modules to different areas of their site, resizing them as they go.

I think these improvements will help users connect better with their tools, in this case the tool is a computer, and although the keyboard and mouse are hear to stay, this “third” hand if you like, will add a lot more functionality, and if the Internet, web designers, and web developers embrace these new tools then maybe web 3.0 is around the corner?

One3rdNerd.com So, what’s it all about?
February 4, 2009, 5:47 am
Filed under: Learning, make money

Okay, its late at night, or early in the morning, depending on your geographic location, or insomniac lifestyle, and I want to write an introduction to the above mentioned website.

One3rdnerd.com is a web-portal with an ethos. The ethos is simple, we all have a bit of nerd in us, don’t we? but the question we ask is “How do you express your nerdyness?”. We promote using your nerdy moments for something positive and productive.

Whether your a creative nerd, or an entrepreneurial nerd, there are many different things you could do or be doing that was more productive, and helped you progress. Unfortunately the world wide web is a very overwhelming media source, and is vast in information, good and bad. Critics say up to 80% of the Internet is incorrect, unlawful, or irrelevant.

The One3rdNerd team have gone about collecting as many viable resources as possible under a few topics;

Make Money… Save Money… Learning…

There are many sub groups for each above mentioned area of the website, and all the information, links, etc have been tested and are free.

Many people buy into scams online, with the “get rich quick” attitude, but generally find themselves scorned when they don’t earn that $5000 in 24 hours, as stated on some advertisement that looked professional, however they asked you for $50 sign up fee for the information or scheme? hello people? pyramid scheme? five year echos, has everyone forgotten?

The way we run our website, we will never ask for money to view our web-portal of links, advice etc.

We may advertise recommended products on our website from time to time, particularly in the form of e-books, or online services, these will specifically state “advertisement”.

We rely on some referral links, however we are not biased on who we refer based on the companies having or not having a referral scheme in place. We also make some revenue from google adsense, like everybody else, its one step to making the website financially self sufficient, which I’m sure you can all understand.

We love feedback, and contributions to ideas and content for the website, so don’t be shy!

This blog will mainly be used, for the odd e-inspired rant, news, in depth articles, advice, and experience of the before mentioned areas of “http://www.one3rdnerd.com”.

Thank you for listening, we hope to hear from anyone who finds the site useful.

Spread the word!
