Microsoft Office Roundtable reviewed

Microsoft Office Roundtable reviewed – Filed under: Misc. Gadgets The good people over at TMCnet want to keep you covered with their lengthy review of Redmond’s five-camera foray into the teleconferencing game, which, as part of Microsoft’s Unified Communications Platform, will probably be seeing a lot of action this year. And what are their feelings? Well, they get stoked on its resemblance to the ships in the 1953 version of War of the Worlds, dig the “head-size spatial equalization” (which makes everyone’s head the same size, seriously), and think that maybe $3000 is a fair price. The only thing they weren’t quite as excited about was the inability to use the panoramic features with non-Ballmerware, but even that appears to be a minor complaint. Still not sure you need one for your startup? Maybe you’d better read the whole thing.   Read | Permalink | Email this | Comments Office Depot Featured Gadget: Xbox 360 Platinum System Packs the power to bring games to life! [EnGadget]

Auto Bounced Messages Management vBulletin Module Helps Purge Bad Email Address On Your Forum

I was browsing through my mail spool on my machine, and I noticed that there were some messages in one of my accounts for a vBulletin forum. After further review, it was some bounce backs that had accumulated from users that didn't have a valid email address. I then started to do some Google searches for a vBulletin module (vBulletin's search is horrendous and practically useless) and found this module.

Featured Linux Download: OS X style widgets with Screenlets

Featured Linux Download: OS X style widgets with Screenlets - Screenlets.png

Linux only: Open-source app Screenlets runs Mac OS X-style widgets on the Linux desktop.

Practically identical to Dashboard widgets and Windows Vista gadgets, Screenlets are small under-the-desktop apps including RSS readers, weather reports, sticky notes, etc. that add a great deal of functionality and convenience mixed with a dash of eye-candy. Screenlets play very well with Beryl and include a bunch of location preferences like always on top, always underneath, etc. Additionally, with the widget plugin for Beryl, you can hide and show your Screenlets exactly the same way you can with Mac OS X widgets.

While there aren't nearly as many Screenlets as gDesklets, kDesklets, or aDesktets, Screenlets tight integration with Beryl makes it a must have for desktop app lovers. Screenlets is a free download for Linux only.
