Get Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 on a DVD

Microsoft released Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 earlier this year and it includes several security and performance related enhancements for Windows 7 all rolled into a single installer.

The easiest and quickest way to install this service pack on your Windows 7 computer is using Windows Update. However, if you have two more more computers running Windows 7, you may download the standalone SP1 installer from microsoft.com and apply it to all your computers even in offline mode.

There’s a third option as well. You may order Windows 7 SP1 on a DVD and Microsoft will deliver it to you via snail mail. They won’t charge anything for the media but you’ll still have to pay shipping charges that vary depending on your country. For instance, if you are in North America, the shipping cost for the DVD is around $6 while Windows 7 users in India will have to pay around $11.

Obviously, a very small number of people would probably take the DVD option but if you are one, pull out your credit card and click your region name - Asia, Europe and Africa, North America or South America - to begin the order process. As you may have noticed in the screenshot, you may order up to three Windows 7 SP1 DVDs in a single transaction.


Why the New Opera is Perfect for Slow Connections

One of the best features of Opera is the built-in Turbo mode that lets you browse the web faster even on slow connections. The feature can also help you save money when you are on a metered Internet connection, like that hotel room, where you have to pay per byte.

Let me explain. When you request a web page - say time.com - your browser will connect directly to the time.com servers to download all the images, text, and other associated files. However, in the case of Opera Turbo, the same request is routed to Opera servers – the web page is downloaded on Opera servers first, it is then compressed and served to you.

The content and layout of the page doesn’t change after compression though the quality of images is often reduced. But since your browser now has to download lesser number of bytes for the same web page, it will load a lot faster on your computer.

Opera Turbo with Google's WebP

The Turbo mode has been part of Opera since version 10 but with the new 11.1 release, that’s due today, Opera servers are now using Google’s WebP image format, instead of JPEG, to compress images. As a result, the byte size of the compressed images is reduced even further without much degradation in the visual quality.

I ran a quick test comparing the size of these photographs as served through regular Opera, Opera Turbo (JPG) and new Opera Turbo with WebP based compression. See results:

Opera Turbo with WebP

The quality of compressed images is quite acceptable. In some cases the images compressed with WebP look better (or smoother) than the ones that have been compressed using JPEG.

And when every byte matters, the savings are obviously huge with Opera 11.1. The other innovative feature of Opera is Unite that turns your computer into a server with a click.

Send Pictures from the Digital Camera Straight to your Phone with Eye-Fi

Eye-Fi memory cards let you wirelessly transfer pictures from the digital camera to your computer without cables. They are compatible with most digital cameras and, other than transferring pictures to the computer, Eye-Fi cards can also upload photos to sites like Flickr and Facebook straight from the camera.

There’s one limitation though. Eye-Fi memory cards use Wi-Fi to transfer photos from the camera to the computer and thus your camera needs to be within the range of a wireless network for you to push the image files out of the camera.
From the Digital Camera to the Mobile Phone

If that is holding you from getting an Eye-Fi card, here’s some related news that might interest you. Eye-Fi cards now let you upload photos and videos from the camera straight to your mobile phone without requiring a wireless network. Mobile devices that are currently supported include the iPhone, the iPad and all Android mobile phones.

You still cannot send photos from the camera to the computer without a Wi-Fi network but the new upgrade still solves an important problem. Say you are on a beach without Wi-Fi - you can capture a high resolution shot with your digital camera, transfer the picture to you phone wirelessly using the Eye-Fi card and then email it to friends using the phone’s data connection which could be EDGE, 3G or Wi-Fi.

The Direct Mode feature is available as a free software upgrade to all existing Eye-Fi card users or you can get one from Amazon.com.
