Just a couple of notes – if only to myself – that have a high rate of Geekiness to them… cool stuff, actually.
Steve has a bunch of new screen shots of Windows Calendar, which is a part of Vista. But it’s not just the screen shots: look at the image “chips” that he’s got on the post itself… that’s just freakin’ cool.
IE7 Beta 2 Preview.. I stress the preview because it’s really for developers – besides, by now it’s old news – but I like new bits so I’ve been using it at work… and I just stumbled on a new feature. When you show the Favorites page and hover over an item, it shows an X on single items and a -> for folders. The X is neat, as it’s delete, but the -> make me raise an eyebrow, since it looks like the “Go” arrow in IE6 and IE7’s address bar… it is exactly that: clicking the -> on a folder in Favorites opens all of the URL’s in that folder as a set of [I hate them but I’ve left them turned on for a better UI in beta experience] tabs. That’s pretty neat for a “quick” look around a collection of URLs, especially the Links folder.
